Scenes from my weekend…

We had the gloomiest of weekends here in NY. All fog, gray skies and rain that alternated between misting to full on down pours.

Here are some of highlights from the weekend.

Snagged some chic rugs from Homegoods:

Hudson went out and picked out a Christmas tree for my parents house. The kid went big and picked a tree that was over 8ft tall!

Here he is getting some hanging tips from his Aunt Ximena:

All finished:

I love decorating at my parents house, but when it comes to my own house I never really decorate for the holidays. These past 3 years we have never put up anything for Christmas, but this year we decided to get into the spirit a bit.

Here is our mantle all done up:

For our tree we decided to use a fake tree we had from years ago so that it would be Hudson safe and instead of ornaments I raided my fabric and craft closet and we made bows instead.

Since I was already raiding the fabric closet I dug a bit more and found some classic black and white gingham fabric and used it for a tree skirt.

The rest of the weekend was spent working on some fun, easy and budget friendly DIY gifts for the blog.

Sneak peek:

{We’ll be featuring all of the new projects this week! Fingers crossed the photos came out all day. Overcast days are not ideal for photoshoots, but the show must go on!}

Of course since we were busy working on projects Hudson decided to get adventurous and start climbing everything!

{Jon got Hudson dressed since the skull thermal shirt and camo overalls. :) P.S. Don’t worry Hudson was never in danger. I did DIY projects and Jon was on Hudson duty.}

    Such great finds at HomeGoods!! I’m not a huge holiday decorator- I try to get into the spirit but I don’t go overboard. Love the bow idea!

    It was kinda gloomy here in Michigan, too, although we got some snow along with rain. I like your new rugs but I love your last photo! What a little cutie pie!! :)
