{My version of this wreath (more here). I changed up the flowers though.}

It’s almost time. Things are getting frenzied. I finished all my holiday shopping a while ago but I’ve been in some stores lately on non-holiday business and things are crazy out there. It can be stressful but I kind of like the madness too – I think the key is that  I don’t have to be out shopping.

My Christmas decorations this year were pretty simple. My house is kind of a mess from impending renovations so it seemed kind of silly to go all out this year. But I still had to do something.

{Gifts count as decorations right?}

So easy it is: DIY wreath. Paperwhites in a vase. Ornaments in a few bowls. Add sparkly lights and that is it. In the end, I’m pretty pleased with it. Sometimes less is really more, especially at this crazy time of year.
