The only "fussy" decoration I invested my time in were the snowflakes and glass ornaments hanging from the hallway ceiling. I'll be honest I'm still not sure I like them.

deer head was a fun find on a day out with a blog buddy.
memories made and the gifts of time given- not the decor. There are many moments of giggles and laughter over a mug of steaming cocoa after some outside playtime. (Until they get wild and crazy from the sugar. Just keeping it real.) Ha!
