Holiday {Friday Finds}

Happy Friday Everybody!

I am not sure about you, but my day has been a doozy. Probably just the least cooperative. We got some freezing rain over night, which led to icy roads and a 2 hour late start for Mr. Pants this morning. I know that sounds like a good thing, and sleeping in an extra 45 minutes, sure was grand. But let me tell you, even though we had extra time, plenty, since I didn't sleep an extra two hours, as one would expect, we were still running behind this morning. It just put me off the whole day! AND it was gloomy out, which made everything feel much earlier in the day than it really was. So I was sitting at my desk and it hit me, that I hadn't done the {Friday} Finds today!

Obviously Christmas is next week, so this seems like a good time, if not a little late, to do a Holiday {Friday Finds}.

The accessories in this week's post are from The Attic here in Ankeny and that gorgeous red chair is from my usual hunting grounds, Stuff Etc.

1. This tree could be suited to fit either a more transitional "country" style with some cute ornaments in that style. You could also paint it a bright modern color and hang some cleaner ornaments on there. It would also make a really cute stocking hanger for homes without mantles.

2. I LOVED this Pottery Barn serving tray. It is so sweet, and conveys a sense of the holiday without being your traditional color palette.

3. This "Merry Christmas" sign would look great on a mantle, table centerpiece, anwyhere really. I love it, and again, it is pretty versatile, and can be easily styled to suite your decor.

4. You could obviously have this great red chair in your house any time, not just the holidays. It would be such a fun pop of color year round, but what a fun pop of red it would be surrounded by your holiday decorations.

5. I love this nontradtitional table top tree. You see the conical ones all the time and I love those too, so very much. But the little bit of added detail with the cut outs, and the simplicity in the single color is really great in this piece.

6. These. Pillows. I love them, so so much. I contemplated buying them, but in standard "Dessie fashion," I spent time looking them over, thinking how I could come up with a way to DIY them. Thus providing myself endless possiblities. When I have time....right...

7. This set is everything I love personally in christmas decor. I adore the traditional red, white and green with the added pop of the bright green. That lighter green, simple lines and polka dots reall makes this a great mod/modern style that I can't resist. In fact, those larger mugs, all the way on the right there? That set of 4, they came home with me. They are mine and I love them. I have already had hot toddy's and coffe in them, with plans for many many more.

Well that's what I have for now ladies and gents. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have lovely holidays with friens and family.

Take Care!
