This year, I have been making a lot of my own Christmas decorations. I wanted to have a good mix of neutral farmhouse decorations to go with my champaign gold theme. In particular, I wanted to find some wooden stars in a neutral finish. Well naturally, I am not likely to purchase something that I can make with things from my scrap wood bin. As a result, I am able to share with you how to make farmhouse style wooden stars!
When I see suggestions out there to hide presents in my underwear drawer, I have to laugh. People, underwear is no deterrent for a determined child! I guess I feel like that because, I was one of those kids that went on a scavenger hunt during the holidays to locate my presents. Actually, there were several of us, and not only did we search for the gifts, but if we found them, we would very carefully open them. Then, rewrap them to hide the evidence. Based on my experience, I can tell you that the first place that a kid is going to look is in your bedroom. So, if you need the best places to hide Christmas gifts that actually work, then read on.
Sometimes it is just not easy to shop for him. I know how you feel. I never know what to get for my husband. He doesn’t want anything. Which, I guess is good on one hand. On the other hand, I am always left scrambling around on the internet trying to find some suggestion that will bring me a light bulb moment. Since I totally understand that feeling, I am posting these 2017 Christmas Gift Ideas for Him.
The only thing that I dislike about the holidays is trying to shop for that one person who either has everything, or shopping for someone when I have no idea what they might want. If you are stuck in that situation with trying to shop for a female friend or perhaps your significant other, perhaps this list will help. I have made this list from items that are some of my favorites. So for what it’s worth, these 2017 Christmas Gift Ideas for Her have been female tested and approved. 🙂
Seven years ago, I purchase a beautiful 9′, Vienna Pine. You know, the kind with the pre-lit Christmas tree lights? Well, it was wonderful for the first five years. Then, a few years ago the lights began to gradually twinkle out. So, last year after putting the thing together, wouldn’t you know it! Several rows wouldn’t light up.
