be very merry

I had a completely different post in mind for today, but then yesterday I got an onslaught of holiday catalogs in the mail. The one in particular that I fell in love with was crate and barrel. I know I've been a little Christmas obsessed for the last few days, but bear with me just for today! I'll be back with more seasonally appropriate posts tomorrow when I like up with Alison for Friday Fancies in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

I love purple. It's kind of an obsession really. I love this bowl with the ornaments and in reality it doesn't have to be just for Christmas! Here.

I usually already have two Christmas trees but I can't get over how much I'd love these as a table decoration. It is the perfect way to show off some of my favorite ornaments. Here.

You can't really see it in this picture, but the tumbler says "happy" all over it. Definitely a fun way to keep people's spirits lifted during the holiday season. Here.

These towels are awesome. I definitely will be adding them to my Christmas decor this year. Not only that, but I will probably buy them for some of my Aunts and Uncles too. I love this sentiment. be very merry. Here.

So if I have the towels obviously I then need the matching plate! This says Eat, Drink and be very Merry. I really love the idea. Here.

I might have a small obsession with appetizer plates. I love the size and I love when they are all mismatched yet sort of coordinating. I love the very modern style of this kind of traditional pattern on this one. Here.

How do you not fall completely in love with this elf and his little asterisk snow flakes? He is too cute! Love him. Here


Love this one too, just simple and classic. This plate is exactly why I don't want all super matchy ones. I would never be able to find a single pattern that encompasses all of my different styles. Here.

Love this! It is just so simple and pretty, it would match any decor. Plus during the Christmas season it is almost a law that you have to have fresh homemade cookies on hand! Here.
