12 Ways to Deck the Halls

Ever since I can remember, the first weekend in December has traditionally been the time to throw on the Christmas carols, put up the tree and deck the halls. Perhaps this was a rule put in place by my parents to avoid constantly being nagged by us kids the day after Halloween, but I suspect this is the weekend most households officially kick off the holidays, get in the festive spirit, and hang the stockings with care. Later this evening I'll be doing just that myself. So I felt the need to kick off my 12 days of Christmas series with holiday decorations and ornaments all chosen from Etsy. I am seriously in love with a few of these pieces and wish I had seen them earlier in the season, particular that gorgeous advent calendar from Australia! It will be mine.

1. Arctic Express Bus Scroll from TransitDesign
2. Cross Stitched Folk Art Snowflake Ornament from CherieWheeler
3. Lasercut Holiday Ornaments from kleinlewicki
4. Teal Checkered Origami Star Ornament from Rigmarole
5. Vintage Trio of Deer from shavingkitsupplies 
6. One Sweet Linen Tree Ornament from allthingswhite
7. Ho Ho Ho Christmas Embroidery Hoop Garland from afabulousfete
8. Christmas Advent Calendar Kit from FreshFabricAustralia
9. Let it Snow Wood Coasters from OryxandCrakeDesign
10. Red and White Christmas Party Mini Bunting from BlueMoonStudios
11. White felted wool acorns from CityCrochet
12. Small Deer Trivet in blue felt from peppersprouts
