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!

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!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

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'…
