Christmas?! Wasn't it just Halloween??

The fact that this is my favorite time of year must make it move wicked fast because Christmas trees are up everywhere and I have yet to toss my pumpkins! (Not a sex act, like literally, throw away my pumpkins.)

We usually get our Christmas tree the Saturday after Thanksgiving but we were exhausted. Our Turkey day was fabulous as always but something about a crazy toddler, no sleep, and saying goodbye to my parents lab Dewars has me wiped out. We fly to Florida this Thursday for the Annual Swiss Christmas Party so I have no idea when I'm going to prep my house for the 6th Annual Girls Ornament Exchange.....

Speaking of ornaments...I really really want these!

Land of Nod Otomi Ornaments set of 6 $32. I am in LOVE with all things Otomi and these would be perfect on my tree!

Here are some other scene stealers....I wonder what will be the most stolen ornament this year?!

Adlers Exclusive Christmas Streetcar $60. Who wants to fly me down to Nola for NYE??!!

Woodford Reserve Christmas Ornament $12. I smell (taste) a DIY coming on. The bummer is that it's just resin inside but the description makes up for it. An authentic Woodford Reserve mini-Bottle is filled with a solid and durable resin for a true-to-life look. Sorry, no alcohol in this one. Keeping Junior out of the eggnog is enough trouble without having to worry about him drinking the christmas tree ornaments.

Anthropologie Chip & Whittle Glass Beaver $12. Because it is an all girls party. 

Anthropologie French Horn Ram $14. For all you Tar Heels or TC Roberson grads!

Department 56 Sugar Plum Fairy $25. I was in the Nutcracker as a kid (as a bonbon!) and I still love this timeless story. Does Fletcher School of Dance in Asheville still put this on?

The Department 56 Krinkles line is discontinued, but you can find them all over Ebay. My mom used to work in the BEST Christmas shop in Asheville (Fireside Antiques) and every year she would gift me a few of these works of art. Still some of my favorite!

Wisteria Dashing through the Snow Ornament Set $36. I'm a sucker for any fox characters (Fuchs = Fox) and these guys are adorable!

Did anyone have these ornaments growing up? I'm not sure what the line is called but I still have several.

The Crate and Barrel Bulb Clip Ornaments would look great set a little farther in the tree to reflect your white lights! $18

When we have an update to the family (AKA Marriage, baby..) I head to the Southern Women's Christmas Show and get one of these darling salt dough ornaments. I have mine from when I was little and I love these!

And last but not least....BALLS. Because we all love balls!

I could go on forever but these are a few of my favorites! Where do you like to buy your ornaments from? Which one would you steal?!



  1. Really loving those Otomi ornaments! So cute and unique. The year has literally FLOWN by! I can't believe it.



  2. I still need to throw out my pumpkins too! Cant wait to put up our tree. Hopefully this weekend. Love the Otomi ornaments!

  3. Obsessed with the Woodford.
    Sorry to hear about Dewars. That is so hard.

  4. That Woodford ornament is to cute
