I am a crazy, button making woman these days~
( Thanks again Vanessa for all your help!)
so I might even make a couple different ones.
The first Holiday Feathered Nest Friday is this Friday December 3rd!
Hope to see you there!!

Here's what I am working on right now...

A little vintage inspired vignette..

A very snowy wreath...

White Christmas delights...

and Joy!

Listening to the holiday music is one of my favorite things to do during the holidays.
I plug in my ipod in the car, and then again at the house.
The twinkle of the lights and classic Christmas songs playing
while I go about my day is so enjoyable!

When I found the metal 'Joy' sign, I just loved it and had to bring it home with me.
It's a perfect accent piece and reminder to just slow down when things get crazy
and find the 'joy' all around.

So, how is your holiday decorating going?
Have you started? Are you done already?
I am a bit behind this year... seems like inspiration has been eluding me...
but I am trying to catch up and hope to be sharing
my Holiday Feathered Nest with you all soon!


Happy Monday Everyone!!

    I started decorating over the weekend and will probably be "tweeking" for the next week. I listen to music when I am puttering around the house. I love the new Glee cd.

  8. Hello Courtney ~ Your post is so festive! I love the Xmas songs too, especially the old classics! Can't wait to see what you and everyone else has in store this season. Love your sign, I have a very similiar metal "PEACE" sign that I purchased last year! Have fun getting ready for the season!

  17. It all looks so it!!

  18. Hi Courtney - Your Christmas vignette is looking good! Mine this year will be a mix of my existing decorations, found organic and handmade elements. Can't wait to show and join your Holiday Feathered Nest parties!

  19. It's looking lovely!! I'm sure you will get lots of great ideas from blogging. It's amazing some of the ideas floating around! :)
