FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY

I love these little faux sapling trees.
They are so tiny that you can tuck them anywhere for a bit of nature.

Originally this old drawer came from a local hardware store
The hardware store used it (and several others) for holding bits, screws,
washers, knobs, etc.
I thought those little trees might fit perfectly inside it...

Love it.

I feel like I am so behind on my decorations, shopping,
wrapping presents, etc. this year!
Is anyone else not finished with everything yet?
I am working in finishing up my Christmas decor in the kitchen
and as well...
I have 2 SUPER exciting giveaways coming your way!!
Oh my goodness...
I think you will love them both!
I am so excited!

(Click the photo to see the post)
So this week, I shared my bedroom dressed for Christmas
and I wanted to say Thank You for all your comments and love!
I appreciate them so much!

Last weeks edition of Feathered Nest Friday was all about Holiday Vignettes!
So many inspiring ideas!!
You guys have made me want to redecorate
EVERYTHING in my house like 50 times over!!
So much talent out there-
it was hard to pick just a few to highlight (as usual!)
and I am adding a couple extras this week!

Shabby Sweet Cottage shared this beautiful cloche
Dwellings- the heart of your home shared a vintage Christmas vignette.
Love Shabby French Cottage Christmas Cloche post!
Fishtail Cottage shared a darling little birdie in a nest.

It's Overflowing shared this gorgeous table setting

Old Time Pickers shared this barn wood table vignette

Shabby Fufu shared beautiful serene decorations

Prior shared this darling banner.

  20. I love the imitation greenery! Your bedroom is wonderful. Wish mine looked like that. Mine is dressed for the holidays too, but that means that it is a messy wrapping station with boxes, tissue, paper, etc. everywhere. One day I should do a post on it!!!
