Our New Christmas Tree: {Sponsored by King of Christmas}

Happy Monday to you!  I know it sounds so cliché, but I cannot believe it is Thanksgiving week! I was going to hold off on decorating but we decided to re-organize the attic (after some attic visitors were taken care of) so instead of putting everything back in it after we cleaned it out, I started bringing things downstairs.

This year I ended up getting a new tree.  Long story short, we've had a little pest problem (gross, barf, gag)  in our attic for the past few weeks and I wasn't sure if my old tree that was in the attic had been messed with.  Gotta love living in front of a huge open field full of critters!  About the time the pest guy told me the critters could have gotten into anything that was in a cardboard box, which is where my tree was, King of Christmas contacted me asking if I would like to review one of their products!  Perfect timing!  Good news, we checked yesterday and everything in the attic was untouched so we may just have 3 trees up this year!

I was very  impressed with the selection King of Christmas offers and ended up going with this tree: 8 foot Prince Flocked Pre-Lit Tree

It arrived very quickly and was really easy to get set up.  Honestly, the flocking does cause a little mess as you are putting it up, but it is so much easier to vacuum up then pine needles!  I find that the flocking keeps the needles from coming off. 

The first thing I noticed is how full the tree is.  In the past, I have used burlap and ribbon to create a full look but that isn't necessary with this tree.

A lot of times the photos online look better than the real deal, but that was not the case with this tree.  It exceeded all my expectations! Last night, I started "fluffing" the branches and couldn't help but to add few ornaments.  I also started decorating the top so here is the "during" photo...can't wait to share the "after" photo!

If you are in the market for a new tree, I highly recommend King of Christmas!  You can check out all their trees HERE and take advantage of the great sale they have going on right now!  If you order one, I would love to know which one you go with!  I know you will love it!

Friday Finds: {Lidded Storage Baskets}

Happy weekend!  We will categorize this post as a Friday Finds post since I found these last night even though the post had to wait for this morning!  Pass the coffee! ;)

I get asked all the time about the side "table" / basket in our living room and unfortunately, it is no longer available.


 After being asked about it so much,  I decided to do a little searching for you and came up with some great alternatives!  Now, to be honest, mine was around $80 so these are a bit more expensive but I still find them to be priced fairly!  I love how these add texture and interest to any space and are a great alternative to a traditional side table or ottoman!

Our Home: {Fall Snapshots}

Happy November 1st!  I am still trying to figure out what happened to October.  Seriously, it went by so fast!  I am a little behind on posting our fall décor so I thought it would be a good time to share a few fall snapshots with you before it is time to bring out the Christmas décor!
This year I stuck with subtle and simple decor.  I love the look of natural elements in soft hues.  This lantern from HomeGoods is one of my favorite pieces because it can stay out all year long and switched up easily by what is inside.  For fall, I actually kept the fern I had in it from spring...and I think it added a nice pop of green.  The driftwood pumpkins from Tuesday Morning added a simple fall touch and brought in some texture to this space.  Of course, my vintage card catalog adds a ton of character to the space so I didn't want to over do the decor.  Less is more, sometimes!
Our reading nook got a cozy touch with this faux fur rug.  I love using layers to create interest in a neutral space.  

This vignette was easy to create using a wood bowl and antlers I purchased at Homegoods awhile ago.  By simply adding the little white pumpkins, also from Homegoods, it quickly became a fall vignette!
Keeping with the simple and subtle theme, our living room was adorned with a crate of pumpkins on the coffee table and a few cotton stems on the mantle. Nothing over the top, but just enough to add a fall ambiance!


I cannot wait until it gets cool enough to light the fire! Until then, these candles will get a lot of use!

In our dining room, I kept with the same theme and used natural elements to bring a little fall inside.  A few real, white pumpkins and mercury glass votive holders completed the look!

I hope you enjoyed my mini-fall home tour!  Have a great week!
