A Spotted Pony Christmas – A Mixture Of Vintage, Fun, and Equestian Christmas Decor

In our house we have a great mixture of unique vintage finds mixed with inexpensive Christmas decor and a little fun for the kids as well as some equestrian touches. When we decorate for the holidays it’s all about what makes us each happy. It doesn’t have to cost a lot to be beautiful and full of meaning. I like to leave a little of our normal decor out and just mix in a few simple holiday decorations here and there. On top of a large bookcase I have some of my favorite equestrian pieces of decor. I have an old...

Have you heard of the Elf on the Shelf Christmas tradition? If you haven’t and you have little ones in the house you have got to check it out.

We were so excited to open our elf the following Christmas and start a new family tradition. This is something that I had never...

Appliqued Candy Cane Shirts and Pajama Pants – Making One Of A Kind Christmas Jammies

So, this year I was feeling brave and decided to try my hand at creating Christmas Pajama sets for my kids. My Rudolph and Clarice shirts and Pajama bottoms turned out great, and so did these. They are made with super soft and comfy flannel fabric covered in a cute candy cane...
