Happy Tuesday Jaderbugs! I could not wait to post this because lately I have been noticing everyone’s amazing tree pictures. Earlier tonight I posted on my facebook page that I was doing a post on Christmas trees and I got ton’s of pictures sent to me. If for some reason you send me a picture after I post this don’t cha worry, I will add it in!

I am very pleased to start off my Christmas tree post with this amazing tree. My friend Stephen Brown (you might remember him from craft wars on TLC) sent me this and my mouth just stayed open for about 46 seconds. You see that little gingerbread house under the tree?  Yes, this is in his fabulous home. I am just going to pretend that is my house and I live IN his house, in this little bitty house… Did I loose you yet?  It’s okay because I lost myself, haha! Make sure you visit his website to order all of his “GLITTERVILLE” items. He has ton’s of Christmas ornaments that you will go crazy over.

I am loving my girl Meg Allan Cole’s tree! Is it not the best tree ever! It’s all about DIY and that is what I love the most! Check out her awesome blog HERE where you can see the full tutorial on how she made this retro tree.

I love the simplicity of this tree from Virginia at LiveLoveDIY. It looks like it came strait out of a magazine!

This amazing tree is from Lindsay Trahan Adams with Periwinkel Pink Gifts. I feel like I just stepped into a Gingerbread home… I love how it’s all red and white. Very festive!

 This is the tree of a friend of mine Ashley Matte. She is a really famous country singer!!! I love how she brings a little Louisiana with her everywhere she goes! I love the brown, green and red ornaments! Make sure and check out her site by clicking on her picture!

This is my friend Rosa Clifford’s tree. I met her through Martha Stewart and I am SOOO thankful for this! She is the sweetest person in the world and her tree is just as sweet! Check out her website HERE, she makes the BEST cards ever.

Seriously how cute is this tree. I love how she made this out of drift wood. Check out Karah’s blog The Space Between for more great ideas!

I have always loved shades of blue on a tree. It just looks magical! This is from Barbara at Chase the Star.

Roeshel from the DIY Show Off did it again! Can you guess what my favorite thing about this tree is? How she wrapped the base of the tree~ It looks like she went in the snowy forrest  cut it and wrapped it up to put in her house! Love the red flowers in it also!

Sue made me so happy when she told me she was putting up a tree this year. It had been 4 long years since she put a tree up! Check out her site here!

The first thing that I thought of when I saw this was WOW, that is HUGE! I am really into colored lights lately so I appreciate that she has red lights tied into her white ones! Check out Cheri’s blog, It’s So Very Cheri.

This is another room that I just can stare at. I love how clean and crisp everything is. This is Cynthia Weber’s tree, who is an amazing interior decorator! Check out her blog HERE!

I always love when I see red ornaments. Maybe it brings me back to that picture in my head of what Christmas is… You know, the red and green picture. Heather from Setting for Four completely brought me back! She has a great blog so I suggest checking her out!

All I will say is WHOVILLE. I want to move there and put this tree on the top of my house!

Another one of Lauren Rippon Michael’s trees! Yep, she has two in her house. Don’t we all strive to be like her!

What I love most about this tree is the stand it is in. It’s not a traditional stand and I actually love that you don’t need a skirt around it. Very creative!

If this tree doesn’t make you want to get UP and dance then I don’t know what will. I love how bright it is!

I am really loving this silky ribbon around this tree. It’s a great way to add some depth to a tree. Good to fill spots on a real tree also.

When I saw this tree my heart melted. I love anything black and white. I especially love the checkered wrapping paper!

The one thing that caught my attention here was the feathers hanging! What a great way to dress up a tree.

WOW! I have never seen a silver tree before. I might have to put this on my list to get for next year. I love how bright and whimsical this tree is!

I love the red and green glittery ribbon on this mini tree!

I have to say I am very impresses by this tree! I love the ball garland all over it!

My favorite thing on this tree is the letter’s that spell out LOVE! I also love the red cardinal at the top!

My favorite thing on this tree is the RED BOOTS!

I have always loved white trees. They really make all of your ornaments pop.

I just love the tree in the picture and the entire setting. It looks like a picture perfect postcard!

This white garland reminds me of SNOW!

Don’t forget to make it a DIY kinda day,

There is nothing better than a fun fall mantle to dazzle up your home. I personally love taking advantage (badly) of every single holiday or special occasion. Check out what I made with things I already had laying around the house!

Happy FALL YALL! I am finally showing you my shelf that I decorated in the kitchen for the Fall holidays. I’ve been showing little tid bits of different projects on Facebook and Instagram so I am excited to be done with this shelf. Fun part will be getting in the attic and decorating the rest of our house!

Monday is almost over and guess what? That means we are are closer to the weekend! Sometimes I find myself counting down the day’s till the weekend. I mean what’s so bad about the week? I think it’s because of work. (haahaa)

I’ve been seeing a lot of Fall decor lately so I figured I would follow the trend. I mean it is FALL YALL! There is only ONE problem with Fall. I am not a huge fan of all the “traditional” Fall colors. EEEK. Did I just say that? When I was growing up our house was always decorated, especially for the holidays. For some reason I only remember my mom decorating in the “traditional” Fall colors, which was really pretty but a little boring to a bright and whimsical girl like me. I swoon over FALL colors every time I see them but I just can’t do it. I mean, look at my kitchen wall color. It’s turquoise. I also added some rustic stars, vintage jars, a vintage “yellow” can and some vintage gas station numbers to my  kitchen decor.

Let take a look at what FALL look’s like in my head…

I am loving red and orange together lately! Check out the candle holder here.

I was totally inspired by my [friend] Stephen with this. Stephen is one of the judges on TLC’S craft wars and he does ton’s of this in his new book “Glitterville’s Handmade Halloween”. Trust me you NEED this book! Buy it here.  I think the black and white make everything else in my kitchen POP. I painted on real wood so it feels warm and cozy when I look at them. (tutorial coming this week)

I love my homemade vases because you can actually add water in them! I will be posting a tutorial this week on how I made them.  I can’t even express how inexpensive this craft is. When I think of Fall I think of natural things. Paper feels natural to me and that is why I used this on my shelf.

What else SCREAM’S FALL like mini flags with mini clothespins! Again I went with natural colors here since I have ton’s of other things bursting with color. I used black and white bakers twine to go along with my black and white FALL theme. You can order mini clothespins in my ETSY shop.

I am loving this print I made the other day. Yes it’s a silk screen. Yes I made it at my house. Yes you can too. Stay tuned for this tutorial because all I will say is you will be purchasing the machine I made it with!

This is a mirror I made a while back but I thought the black and white went with my theme. See the tutorial here.  If you follow my blog then you already know my LOVE for black and white. I think I love it because it allows me to add POP’S of color all over! Remember my bedroom walls and my napkin flags?

How could a live plant not feel like FALL! The fresh green just makes me smile plus it adds good energy in the house!

The rest of the week I will show you tutorial’s on everything I made for my kitchen decor so make sure and come back!

Huge Glittery Hugs, Jade
