Christmas Tree Inspiration

I thought I'd share with you all a couple of pictures of my Christmas decorations, to give you some ideas of what you could do in your home!


Ok, so maybe this really isn't my house...maybe it's a fabulous sport shop I stopped at on the way back from the beach yesterday. It is the Nuese Sport Shop in Kinston, NC and they have the most fabulous Christmas trees - I was so in love I asked if I could take pictures!

I love the look of a Christmas tree dripping with ornaments - and these certainly were! I really had a hard time picking out my favorite, but I loved the black top hat on the snowman-themed tree! I try to theme my tree around snowmen, so I think I'm going to attempt to make my own out of black paper and ribbon! I'll show you results! I think the tree topper is always the hardest piece - but these trees may give you some great inspiration! I was certainly inspired!



  1. absolutely stunning! My husband loves the Nuese Sports Shop, but I've never been around Christmas time ... it may be worth a trip to stop on our next trip to Emerald Isle. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I was feeling good about my decorations but you just about made me feel BAD! Good one! Looks like a really cool shop.

  3. How beautiful! I just posted on some of my decor tonight too! It's so much fun!! Love it! ;)

  4. those trees are beautiful- I can see how they serve as great inspiration!

  5. Oh I LOVE these!!! I'm going to show my mother - she's already got the house looking like a snow globe exploded in it - what's a few more decorations?

  6. What neat pictures! We're getting our Christmas tree this coming weekend. I can't wait to decorate it! I will have to baby proof the bottom part of the tree because I'm sure my little boy will be exploring it. :o)

  7. Ha, the sleigh might be a little much! But those trees are beautiful! :)

  8. Those trees are amazing!!! Now those are {ornaments...lots and lots of them}.

  9. Those trees are gorgeous! I love that they're so festive!!

  10. Those trees are breathtaking! I just love a good Christmas tree. I think I got that from my mom. She said she would have a tree in every room if she could afford it! Thanks for sharing :)

  11. I love to see new ideas at Christmas and love to read your blog! Thanks for sharing...I put a "teen tree" now in my girls lounge upstairs and then we have our family tree in the living room! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

  12. Just gorgeous. I feel like with trees, more is more! I think I need to add more to mine now!

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!
