my week in objects (Christmas edition):

It is my first holiday season with my own apartment, and my roommate and I decided to throw our first Christmas party with a group of our friends. Of course, we waited until the last moment to decorate, and with our limited funds due to post grad life, we decided to hit up our favorite local thrift shop to see what we could find.

Though we did not buy a Christmas tree, we ended up finding everything we needed to give a festive touch to our quaint little apartment! This includes stockings, garland, a nativity scene and so much more. The best part of our trip was knowing that all the funds spent at our local thrift shop are used to benefit programs for community members in need. What a way to celebrate the season of giving!

We also visited our local orchard market for fresh produce and apple cider. Our party featured holiday attire, a unique Christmas playlist by one of our enthusiastic friends, yankee swap, catching up, and lots of laughter. A great time was had by all!

So here are five little festive things that made my week:

 1. this decorative pine-cone.

(because we have this in our doorway instead of mistletoe, and I prefer it anyway.)

2. these Christmas mugs.

(because what is cuter than having matching roommate mugs to drink your morning latte in?)

3. this perfect nativity wall hanger.

(because it was exactly what I was looking for and I didn't even know it.)

4. this Christmas bouquet.

(for bringing a festive feel to our kitchen.)

5. these mulling spices. 

 (because they helped make the very best batch of spiced/spiked apple cider in the crockpot.)

Check out one of my favorite blogs, reading my tea leaves, which inspired me to post about my week in objects! It has been a great little weekly project for me that I really enjoy doing!
