the 12 days of Christmas love

So I love love love Christmas time. When you're newly married, it's understandable that you can't have every single decoration that you want... That the best decorated homes happen over time. It's a collection of this and that... making the whole.

Last year (our first Christmas), we didn't have stockings, we didn't have a tree skirt, and we borrowed all the ornaments for our tree. This year, I made our tree skirt and am in the process of making our stockings. We're building our tree ground up. We have our own ornaments. Some are from Latvia, others are homemade, others we've gathered since getting married. But honestly, I love it. We got our tree this week and are getting ready to get it all decorated today. I can't wait.

While searching for inspiration online, I found more than inspiration. I found a true Christmas wish. ONE DAY I will have these. They're found at Pottery Barn and they're so beautiful. They're perfect.

The Twelve Days of Christmas... in ornaments. Could they be any more perfect? They're beautiful!

Seriously... if these ornaments just so happened to show up at my house, I'd be thrilled. Eventually they will be mine. love.
