Lockhart Holiday Home Decor

I hope all of you in the US had a safe, restful Thanksgiving! (And if you're somewhere else, I have a favor to ask! I know when Canada's Thanksgiving is, but no others. My kids and I were having a conversation on Thursday about how wonderful Thanksgiving was because it transcends cultural and religious boundaries, but we all realized that we know very little about it in other countries. If you wouldn't mind, could you leave a comment & let me know a little about your version of Thanksgiving? I will share them with Wally and the Beav as a learning tool! THANKS BUNCHES!)

I spent Friday decking the halls at our house. It ended up being a pretty nice day, so the outside decorations were easy to tackle. We went and got our Christmas tree (if you were a reader here last year, you may recall that we have a tree farmer who sets up each year basically across the street; we literally carry home our tree in a Rockwell-esque moment that you couldn't possibly make up). It's been fun because I didn't really go all out last year - I think I was wiped out from all our house problems and the move. This year, though, complete opposite! :)

So I wanted to share one way that you can incorporate your holiday stamps into your holiday home decor. This is a paper mache tissue box available in most craft stores. I used the Lockhart Snow Tree with Birds on all four sides for a great view from whichever way you see it. Pair it up with some festive paper & fun trim and you have great holiday accent!

Of course, this is just a hopping-off point - you could use this for tons of fun accents around your home! I would love to hear your thoughts! (And don't forget, to my international readers, I would love to hear if your culture has an equivilant to Thanksgiving!)

In the uk we dont have a thanksgiving day.
We do have the 26th of December as a public holiday 'boxing day' so we get a 2 day holiday what with christmas day.
We do have a harvest festival usually in september(which is not a public holiday) to celebrate the bringing in of the harvest, which is possibly as close to an american thanksgiving as we get.
