Along the Journey

Happy Weekend to ya!

Is your weekend filled with all things Christmas decorating? We are still finishing up our decorating. I think the only spot left to decorate is our front porch. Stay tuned to our latest posts and YouTube videos because I will be sharing a home tour in the next couple of weeks!

This week on Instagram, I shared these beautiful rose pine cones with glass glitter. Seriously, they are so pretty and sparkly in person! I’ve made one wreath using them for our back door and I am going to make another wreath this weekend!

Our Christmas Market

With Christmas decorating going in full swing for most of us, I thought it would be helpful if I gathered some of my favorite decorating supplies from Walmart. They really have improved their Christmas decor pieces over the years! I was amazed!

  • When I am decorating for any season, I always want to have bindwire and chenille stems available. They are the best for attaching just about anything; strong yet gentle.
  • These cedar placemats are my absolute favorite. I don’t just use them on the table; I use them all over the house all winter long. If they’re out of stock, have them notify you when they’re back in.
  • If you have an artificial tree and miss that fresh, real tree fragrance, get a pack of THESE to satisfy your senses. A reader recommended them to me and I’ve added a stick to each of my small artificial trees.
  • I’m a little obsessed with THESE battery operated wax candles that look like birch. I bought enough for every window of my house. I placed them in thrifted brass candlesticks. They come with a remote and a timer so I set them to be on from 4:30 to 10:30 pm. They even look like they’re flickering!

  • I LOVE this jadeite cake stand. It’s perfect to use at Christmas time. Mine is currently filled with vintage Santa mugs.
  • I also adore these mini Keurig machines that come in the cutest colors! Yes, in pink and aqua!
  • If you have any type of coffee maker – I highly recommend this kitchen caddy coffee sliding tray. It’s fabulous because I can easily slide my coffee maker back under the kitchen cabinets when it’s not in use.
  • Finally, this set of 12 linen napkins is a great deal and they are perfect for any Christmas meal.
