Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve, y'all!

I know, it's cutting it close-but I haven't gotten a chance to share any of my holiday decor yet, so I wanted to squeeze this post in between baking a buttermilk pie, wrapping presents, and getting dolled up for C's family's Christmas!

I didn't really go all out this year because I didn't want to go buy a bunch of Christmas decorations just to have them-so we kept it simple & we kept it rustic.

Let's just jump right into it, shall we?

This is a wall in our living room, we recently picked up that cedar chest at an estate sale, so it's been in here since we got it. those candles are always there. I just added the big jars with ornaments & the chalk sign was supposed to have something written on it...but I've kinda procrastinated that. Whoops.
I'm obsessed with our married monogram in the corner sitting on that basket.

Here's a close up of the monogram... 

This is probably my favorite nook in the entire living room.
We picked up this antique fainting sofa a few months ago & C's hand-carved chicken table fits perfectly beside it.
I just added a Christmas sign from target, some ornaments, and a Christmas candle from B&BW to the table.
The large pillows are from TJ Maxx and the smaller one is from Country Outfitter.
The blanket was a Christmas gift from C's step-mom & it's SO comfy & soft.

This is a terrible quality picture, but this is our entertainment center.
I have been shamelessly watching the "Fireplace" on Hulu & this is the Christmas scenes version playing on the tv.
We just have a couple of Christmas cards from our friends, some Christmas candles from B&BW, and our stockings.
The stocking holders are from Target & the stockings are from Country Outfitter.
The adorable sign is something my parents picked up from their trip to Gatlinburg for C.

This is the best shot I could get of our tree, but I am absolutely in love with it this year.
Most of the ornaments are from Sears (just balls & different shapes), but we also have our personalized ornaments that we've began a tradition of doing.
This year we also started a tradition of picking out an ornament or two for each other-he got chickens from me & he gave me a cross and a horse!
Our tree skirt is ruffled burlap (even though you can't see it here, it's adorable) & it's from Country Outfitter.

This is the closest we're getting to a full-room shot, but this one included our coffee table so I wanted to add it.
To dress our coffee table I just added two B&BW Christmas candles (Winter & Twisted Peppermint!) and a bowl from Tractor Supply with some ornaments piled in it.

It's nothing elaborate & crazy.
We don't have a running theme.
I didn't DIY a ton of stuff.
But it's us and I am so proud of it.

I love snuggling up on the couch and taking in the entire room & I'm going to be so sad when I have to undecorate it :(

Just because these boys are so cute, I wanted to include Whiskey & Bullet (they were helping me decorate the front porch)
This is how I decorated our front porch; our normal U's with burlap as our door-hangers, two trees (I'm not sure why you can't see the lights on the one on the right, I swear they're there!), and two poinsettias that I scored from Home Depot.
Bullet is just extra-cute decor.
Bullet says that all of this decorating stuff & modeling stuff is hard work.

I wish all of my followers the merriest of Christmases tomorrow, may you have a peaceful, happy day with your family & friends.

Love you all dearly!

Until next time. . .
