For the past several years, at Christmas, I have tried to decorate with what I already have. I’ve got several bins of stuff in my basement…and I bet you do too! Those bins have been around for a long time so I decided to go through all of them and donate what I didn’t want. Honestly some of it was thrown in the trash because it had really seen better days. I kept only what I absolutely loved and knew I would use. So…about the same time I was purging my Christmas decorations, Target started running commercials featuring the most amazing red and black buffalo plaid stuff. I mean all of it was so incredibly fun. That’s when my new obsession was born. I fell in love with everything. My first purchase was the Adam Lippes for Target throw. From there, everything else just fell together perfectly.
I am so excited to show you and I promise it will be easy and budget-friendly. Nothing I have planned will break the bank. I’ll be sharing a no sew table runner from flannel fabric, gift wrapping ideas, handmade ornaments, table setting ideas, printables and a few other things I will surprise you with. Here is a preview with some shopping links below.
