the most wonderful time

happy holiday lovelies!
can't believe it's already december 21st-- where has time gone?
I am late to jump on the christmas decorations post-- but better late than never-- right? ;)

since we live in a >800 sq ft apartment- space is limited (that's putting it mildly) which means buying christmas decorations = not happening. (I'd rather have the space to store my clothes than worrying about decorations) so I made due with what I had & spent maybe $12 at michaels.

a. handmade candy dish -- made my yours truly 
b. poinsettia flowers
c. table centerpiece

a. vase + added pretty purple bow & gold/silver balls
b. stockings hung from bookshelf 
c. vase + touch of gold and red 

remember how I mentioned we were getting a christmas tree delivered? yep. we paid $30 for this very oh-so tiny christmas tree. our version of a 'charlie brown christmas tree'. and yes-- it stands maybe 2 1/2 ft tall. seriously. 

lastly-- wanted to share our christmas card pictures! i absolutely loved how they turned out! 

the 2nd is my personal fav. we went old school and sent actual cards with our pictures-- there's just something very personal that I love about writing in our cards and signing our names! ;)

can't wait for the holiday! what are your christmas plans? 
we are spending christmas here in san francisco together with our own little family. :)

oxx & holiday cheer
