I thought I would share a couple pictures of my Holiday Decor again this year.

I love a retro Christmas tree:

It get's a little fuller every year. This year I added those huge glittery balls from Target ($4.99) and I have my eye on some super glittery nutcrackers from
Pier One. I hope they have some left the day after Christmas!

Jim Shore carved Santa's and Snowmen are my favorite. My mom got me hooked on these and now I like to try and get a new one every year. I couldn't afford one this year, so I'll just show my Snowman again. Don't you love the handmade look? The details on these things are amazing!

For the contest below, the winners are.....I'm not telling! That way your wife will only know if she won on Christmas day. I love, love, love all of the comments. I know that was hard for the men to write their feelings about their wives on a strangers blog, but the 25 wives that were noted here must be the luckiest ladies on the planet. I'm not even sure if my husband would have done that! The comments were all so sweet and heartfelt, even the one who said his wife was HOT! That was funny :) I wish I had time to do something for all of you lovely ladies, but I can only pick 3 winners. So I'll have my husband draw your names out of a hat and you will be notified shortly if you won. There were a couple of you who didn't leave your email address. Can you check the comments and if yours isn't there can you leave it for me? Thanks for participating in my holiday contest. Merry Christmas!

P.S. I'll post pictures of the aprons and the winners after Christmas :)

LOVE IT!!! You are so kind to share the pattern. I just had to let you know that I love your HUSBANDS giveaway. I'm hoping I win but if I don't I'm still happy to know that my husband loves me and took time to say so with a compliment. Great idea!

Your tree looks awesome! I LOVE the present pillows. I should try them. I only decorate downstairs. I think it is fun to bring decorations upstairs. The kids would be thrilled.
Merry Christmas Chelsea!

I love those handmade Christmas gift pillows. Those are definitely going on my bed or couch next year. Maybe I'll make some for the playroom in some cute fabric.
