So my dear friend Kristy Banks made me the cutest Halloween banner–technically for my mantle downstairs–but I put it on my piano where everyone could see it because it was just so darn cute.

Christmas time came.

And look what she made!

Loooove it!

I’ve simplified my decorating the past couple years. Decided I liked it that way. It’s what I was in the mood for.

So now when I look at this spot–which also often houses my Christmas village–I just smile.

I love my jingle bell banner. It’s just a such a fun and unique element to the Christmas decor.
I also love my jingle bell tree that I got at Target a few years ago.

Thank you KB! :)


So what Christmas decoration do you have
in your home that makes you smile?
