It's the night before Christmas Eve, friends!
On Saturday we made the looong drive from Colorado to southern California. "Tiring" would be an understatement, but here we are, safe and sound!
I never got a chance to share the last snippets of Christmas at home before we left, so I'll share them with you this evening.
Don't forget, simple and handmade were the goals this year as we knew we'd be away.
On the piano, just our Advent candles, our Handmade Nativity Set and some pine cones.
To the left of the piano, our simple Christmas dining room.
To the right of the piano, our small living room space.
On our farmhouse cabinet, two little evergreen wreaths hang on wide strips of torn white cotton fabric
The curtain panels in the doors of the farmhouse cabinet are really pretty kitchen towels I got from the Frugal Ain't Cheap Etsy shop.
An antique sled and some cheerful red and white details adorn the top of the cabinet.
It's always fun to incorporate the kids' wooden doll house into the holiday decor.
This year, I just cut some little images from a catalog and taped them into the windows and added a simple twist of faux boxwood for a wreath.
On the mantel was a mix of little Christmas trees handmade dolls, gnomes and sock snowmen.
My kids had fun making these cute little gnomes during a "crafty streak" before Thanksgiving.

We left Colorado in snow and temps around 20 degrees. Today in southern California it was almost 80 degrees!
To be honest, somewhere in the middle of those two would be just right for me : )
I've missed sharing and being able to visit around to other blogs this week, but we are right where we're meant to be with our family all together.
I pray you are having a blessed and not too frantic Christmas week.
See you soon!
