All dressed up and ready to go...

So I've already shared some free gift tags, our new tree and DIY monogram topper. What else is there?

Our Christmas cards of course. They are just in the mail so Ill have to wait until they arrive before sharing. (click here for cards of christmas past: 2010's chap stick; 2009 tea towels; round up of 04-08)

I'm pretty much done with my shopping and I have a little more wrapping to do. I am waiting for some fresh wreaths to arrive to do one more project and I think I'm all caught up on Christmas. I didn't quite make my Dec 1 deadline but close enough. Now I have the next few weeks to kick back and really enjoy the season.

Its just turned icy cold in NYC so that is definitely putting the Christmas spirit in high gear for me (Hard to imagine Santa clonking on the roof when its 70 degrees).

I'm looking forward to ice skating and hot chocolate later this week. What are you looking forward to?

    Your home is beautiful.  Did I just read about you in some magazine that I can't remember the title of right now?  I "borrowed" your gift tags(beautiful)and packaged them in glassine envelopes with some extra red/white and turquoise/white twine, a few candy canes.  I plan to hand them out to co-workers as a "wrap up" to our work year.  Thanks!

    I love the bare branches on the sofa table. I think they should stay year round :)

  18. Looks great!  You said you were waiting for your fresh wreaths to arrive...out of curiosity, where do you get them from?  I used to always pick up all of my Christmas greenery on the corner of Atlantic & Clinton :)

    The bowl or the ornaments? The ornaments are cheapo ones from Target. The bowl was purchased from Pottery Barn outlet a few years ago.

    I get them from an online company : http://www.greenvalleychristmastrees.com/real-christmas-wreaths-s/30.htm They seem to last longer and smell fresher than the ones I can find on the street.

    Ha - they do! I've had them since 2010. Im thinking I should probably replace them at some point but I'm not ready to part with them yet.

    These pictures actually have a little color cast that is not quite right but I was too lazy to bother fixing. That said, its not too hard to white balance, I just didn't do it. Pretty much any camera does the same thing - just have to know how to use it.
