Random Chanel Item

No. 101

Holy moly, the days seem to be flying by at lightning speed...here we are at the end of another week, and it's December!  Have you started doing any Holiday decorating?  Do you do the same traditions each year? We do. (I'M SO INTO THAT!) For starters, we have an annual tradition that kicks off the season.  Each year we take our children to the same local nursery to pick out a tree.  It's a lot of fun, as this place goes all out...think Santa's workshop, hot cider, a petting zoo and a really amazing selection of ornaments. The kids are allowed to pick out one ornament each of their choice, and through the years we've managed to amass the sweetest collection. For another one of our holiday traditions, I hope you'll stop by Mimi+Meg today.  Meg's put together a lovely post about my Holiday picks and celebrations.  Hope to see you there.  Happy Weekend!

xoxo,

  4. What a wonderful tradition! We are getting our tree this weekend, but no petty zoo for us, sadly! And now I just need a few Chanel ornaments for my tree -- or a little Chanel to go under it!

    Merry Weekend, Sue! Off to see your picks!

  7. What a great tradition! We've always been the ones who have had to travel to family for the holidays so we've never actually had a Christmas in our own home to make our own traditions. I do still put up a tree though and pick up an ornament whereever we travel to so that's a fun collection of memories when we trim the tree.
    Love the Chanel and eiffel towers :)

  10. We had the same tradition when my kiddos were younger. One year my son picked out a $13 glass ornament...I died. But all these years later he still has it and now it goes on the little tree in his room.

    Have fun with your family this weekend!!!

  11. I love traditions....and usually do the same things. But, this year, we're tweaking. Just not going all out as in years past. And, I'm surprisingly ok with that. Half of the house is decorated and the other half is a mud pit. But, come summer....I'll be all put back together.

    Need the name of that great nursery!!! :)
