Recycling the Tree

by Hampton Ivy, 12/29/2014

Christmas came and went in a beautiful and magical blink of an eye. The holidays were full of family time and fun activities, and I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful holiday as well! It's time now to take our flocked tree, clean it up, and bring it to the beach to recycle. After that it's time to prepare for New Years Eve. Have a great week everyone, and bring in the New Year right! :) xo

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!!
I wanted to wish everyone a lovely holiday and a great week. We're counting down every minute until Christmas over here, officially finished wrapping presents, and binge watching holiday movies!
Have a very merry Christmas!

It's Christmas Party Season...

I love getting ready for Christmas and Holiday parties! I also love wrapping presents as much as finding and shopping for them! "It's the most wonderful time of the year" is an understatement. I hope you are all having a wonderful week doing a little of both! xo

The first week of December has passed and the holiday decorating has begun in our home. I'm a fan of natural decorations, and that means garland on almost every surface. While I love shopping, sometimes going outside and finding decorations in nature is just as fun. There's no bite in the air just yet, only a cool breeze and the need for a cozy wool sweater. It's the perfect time to grab a pair of scissors and search for garland pieces outsides. There's a beautiful path near me where I go to walk and stop at a bench for a little hot cocoa. It's a great little spot to just sit and enjoy my surroundings.


This year we tried our hand at flocking our Christmas tree. The result is absolutely beautiful. Snow is one of my favorite parts of the winter holiday season. Here on Long Island we haven't seen any snow just yet, but this tree is almost enough to make me believe we have. It is a lovely sight to see in the morning as I'm walking down the hallway, and dreamy when lit up at night as I'm lounging in our living room.

Happy Holidays xo
