    Ahhh, My House Feels Sooooo Empty – After Holiday Home

    Some of us dread it. Some of us love it. It’s the after Holiday emptiness of our home. We’ve had orange decor and pumpkins, turkeys and acorns, and Christmas trees and garland. For the past few months our homes have felt festive and full. Suddenly it feels empty. I’m somewhere between love and dread when it comes to this after holiday emptiness.

    Fresh Pine Wreath

    A simple timeless way to add holiday cheer to your home is with a fresh pine wreath! You can use it inside or out – either way it’ll have that little space smelling and looking like Christmas time! That’s why when Artist Wreaths  reached out about sending us a wreath for the Holiday season – I said , “SURE”!!  There’s nothing like fresh pine during the Holidays. The wreath we chose was the Cedar Roses & Red Princess Pine Holiday Wreath. I was attracted to this wreath because of the sweet cedar pine roses. I though those were a creative combo on a Christmas wreath. It has just enough neutral with…
