Nnenna’s Nest #2: Deck the Halls!

Let the countdown to Christmas begin!  Right after Thanksgiving, I picked up a couple of things from the store to add a little Christmas cheer to my apartment- the snowman dishtowel and that cute Santa mug.  Yesterday, I was in a crafty mood, so I made a mini advent calendar with some supplies I had lying around.  I was so excited to flip over the first little ornament- I can’t believe it’s December already!

Tell me: Have you put up any holiday decor in your home?

  15. Ummmm … don’t mind me, just catching up round here :) LOVE your festive decorations. I just can’t get enough of Christmas lights, they add such warmth to a room (in fact, I have been thinking about leaving mine up all year!). Adore your advent calendar, the glittery numbers are just beautiful!
