Christmas Decor – Guest Post from Simple Dwellings

I know, I know, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet.  However, we also know it’s time to start getting prepared for Christmas.  So, today, though you may be traveling or cooking in preparation for tomorrow, I hope you can take a breath and begin to wrap your mind around Christmas.  I’ve invited Amber to share with us today. 


Hi, I’m Amber from Simple Dwellings.  I was so excited when Kristy asked me to guest post while she got ready for her move!  I have loved her blog ever since I saw her amazing painted wing chair project!  For me, this fall has flown by- I cannot believe the holidays are around the corner. So today, I thought I would share some of my favorite holiday decor images to help get me motivated with my own Christmas decorations!

Now I am in the spirit! I had to include the last chevron image, since it reminds me so much of Kristy’s blog!

And now for the current exterior of our home:

I am still in fall mode, and I need to switch gears ASAP! I guess I am feeling more inspired to begin now- are you?? (To see my DIY tutorial on the painted topiary pumpkins, go here.)


Thanks so much for sharing, Amber!  I’m not going to decorate for either holiday this year, believe it or not. My move is right in the middle of it all.  So, between people viewing my house, closing on the house, packing and moving, there is no time left in there for decorating.  Next year for me! 



  1. Love all this inspiration! Christmas decorating always comes together last minute for me, so I need a lot of inspiration!

  2. Thanks so much for having me here today, Kristy! The post was so much fun to put together. :)

  3. Great Christmas decor inspirations, Amber!

    I know you must be busy in the middle of a move but I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family tomorrow. :)

    By the way, I am having a fabulous giveaway that ends today! So come by and enter for a chance to win a $65 store credit to get a designer pillow or two!


  4. Those are the cutest pumpkin topiaries. Great look.
