West Elm Plaid Ruffle Pillow Knockoff

Dressing Up A Real Pine Wreath

So every year I put a fresh pine wreath on my front door. It’s kind of become a tradition. I am always tempted every year by all the wreath cuteness – yarn wreaths, ornament wreaths, burlap wreaths – they’re all so fun. But I just love the way the fresh…

So Excited for New Christmas Decorations!
