Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge Day 3

Fabulous Holiday Blog Challenge

Well I got sick and missed Day 2. It was about Traditions New and Old. Matt and I are still creating our new traditions which is fun. This will be our first Christmas as a married couple! :)

With my family though, Christmas is all about traditions. We always went to Christmas Mouse and picked out an ornament. We always go to the 7:30 service at Church. We always make my Great-Grandmother's fool proof fudge. We always wait until Christmas morning to open all the gifts. And we always separate the gifts and open them one person at a time :) I love Christmas with my family and can't wait to go home!

So on to Day 3. I probably could have spent longer on Pinterest if I didn't still feel a little less than 100% but here are some cute things, some of which I'm hoping to make. By the end you'll be able to tell I reallly like buttons :) Also green is my favorite color. I love mixing and matching different greens. I think lime and dark green just look so good next to each other!

This is just because I can't wait to spend Christmas in Virginia!

This is a wreath from Williamsburg, VA. I've always loved the colonial decorations they put up. They usually have classes on how to make a Williamsburg wreath. I've never gone to one, but one day hopefully I will!

I think this is adorable. Don't know where I'd put it, but I'd love to make it!

I need to get some good scissors so i can cut fun prints like this out. Maybe something for the Christmas list!

This tree would look so cute for the table!

I think this is a craft I might actually have the patience to make!

And these were just too cute! :)

I love all of the buttons! :) I recently ordered about 200 buttons off of Etsy...sort of a random, wasteful splurge. But they only cose a few bucks and this post is very helpful to me, as I've been looking for ways to use all of my buttons! :) P.S....I'm your newest follower & I'm for SC, too! :) Excited to see more of your Christmas decor!
