Alright, Thanksgiving is officially over and it’s time to talk about CHRISTMAS!
There are no words for me to possibly explain to you how obsessed with Christmas I am. I’m like a five-year old kid when it comes to Christmas – I can’t get enough!
So, it should come as no surprise to you that I’ve been drooling over Christmas decorations for months now and I’ve been anxiously awaiting this day so I can start sharing them with you.
In fact – I have so many Christmas inspired items that I can’t share them all today. Which is why from now until the end of December, Friday Finds is being hijacked by all things Christmas. Get ready, because it’s going to be amazing.
I am dying (DYING) for some Christmas pillows. Now that we have a big giant sectional and a ton of pillows to go on it, I feel like Christmas-y pillows would make such a huge impact in the room. The only problem is, most Christmas themed pillows are embarrassingly cheesy. Crate & Barrel to the rescue! They have several wintery pillows that are exactly what I want to fill our couch up with for the holiday season – and they’re sparkly to boot. Sparkly is a must at Christmastime.
I went on a Christmas printable frenzy earlier this week in order to turn our gallery wall into a tribute to all things Christmas. This one is one of my favorites. Corey and I don’t have a ton of Christmas decorations yet, since it’s our first year as a married couple and our first year spending Christmas in our own home, so we’re doing anything and everything we can to keep our home from feeling sparsely decorated. Luckily, printing our a bunch of Christmas-themed photos and prints was incredibly easy and cheap, and it made a bigger impact than I imagined it would – I promise to share soon!
Love love love love love. I’m a huge fan of advent calendars, and this one is the best I’ve seen by far. I adore the eclectic look of all of the ornaments thrown together, and I love that it’s so much more elegant than most advent calendars I’ve seen. I already have the perfect frame hanging out in our garage – I just need to collect 25 ornaments to put on it!
I’ll admit it. I’m one of those annoying people that thinks Zooey Deschanel can do no wrong – especially when it comes to her music. Her voice is absolutely perfect for Christmas music, and I’m totally lusting after this album right now. My collection of Christmas music isn’t exactly high-brow (although I will always argue that NSYNC’s Christmas album is one of the best of all times), so I could definitely use a few Christmas albums that I’m not ashamed to put on when guests come over!
Oh these plates. I debated even putting them in here because they broke my heart and I’m mad at them, but I love them too much to exclude them. You see, I fell in love with these plates a month or so ago when I saw them at West Elm just a few days after they put their Christmas stuff out. I fell in love hard. And I wanted them. I drooled over them. I begged and pleaded with Corey. But it wasn’t in the cards just yet. I figured I’d wait it out and see if they went on sale after the holidays, or if I could talk someone into buying them for me for Christmas. But guess what? I checked West Elm the other day and they’re no longer available. Not backordered or sold out – no. longer. available. That would be the sound of my heart breaking into a million pieces. Corey and I have looked around to see if we can track them down on Ebay or another website, but we haven’t had any luck yet. I’m hoping West Elm decides to bring them back, or I don’t really know what I’ll do with myself.
And on that depressing note – that wraps up the first edition of our Christmas themed Friday Finds! I’m incredibly excited about the next month of sharing all my favorite Christmas finds – any excuse I can take to talk about Christmas is a plus for me! Corey and I are spending our weekend putting up all of our Christmas decorations (finally!) and staying far (FAR) away from any Black Friday sales.
Do you love Christmas as much as me? Are you one of the crazies who is braving Black Friday today? Did you score anything amazing?
