Wow, what a busy week! It was filled with lots of Christmas Decorating Inspiration and some thrilling mailbox surprises!
Although I shared many great ideas for the 10 Days of Christmas Decorating series, I also found some great inspiration around the web. I can’t wait for you to see it all.
Two Magazine Features – An Exciting Week
Opening my mailbox has never been so fun because I received two advance copies of upcoming holiday magazines.
I was so honored to receive not one, but two magazine features this week.
Both magazines featured previous DIY projects I’ve shared with you.
The first feature was the Real Cedar and Orange Topiaries I made for my dining room table. Country Sampler Farmhouse Style Christmas is also the magazine that photographed and featured our entire home decorated for Christmas in 2019.
I have shared the Shiplap Christmas Tree Tutorial several times, including last week on the 10 Days of Christmas Decorating Ideas. Still, seeing the three-page article in American Farmhouse Style Magazine this week was an honor.
Actually, my husband gets credit for this DIY project. He made the tree from reclaimed shiplap boards for our first Christmas in the farmhouse. I love decorating it for all seasons.
Look for both magazines on newsstands!

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
I began the week with some ideas for getting ready for Christmas Decorating. Then I joined some of my favorite bloggers to share our best ideas for Christmas Decorating in our series – 10 Days Of Christmas Decorating Ideas.
