Rusty Hinge Christmas message board


I love this Balsam Hill Countdown To Christmas calendar complete with metal number tags.  Hanging on the message board fashioned from a vintage crib base, it sits right at home with all our friends and family Christmas cards!

Rusty Hinge clip pant hanger Christmas card display


An old trouser hanger, complete with red clips, displays our Christmas cards perfectly while a vintage dust pan corrals keys and other mementos.






Balsam Hill Christmas tree decorated with sentimental ornaments


Balsam Hill takes great pride in the lifelike foliage of the Christmas tree products they provide.  What better way to demonstrate this to you than with a photograph of our decorated
Balsam Hill 9' Sugarland's Spruce Tree!  Isn't it incredibly realistic?


Balsam Hill Christmas tree decorated with sentimental ornaments


I do love all those themed, magazine-worthy Christmas trees pinned on my Pinterest boards, and I know our's probably looks a little hodgepodge compared to those beauties, but here's why: each Christmas, Mom and Dad gifted an ornament with the handwritten year to hang on the tree.  Now in our own home, each one of those special ornaments adorns our Christmas tree.  Although out of the nest, this favorite tradition continues on, my parents still gift us with an ornament each Christmas!




This completes my Countdown to Christmas blog post, but Balsam Hill would love nothing more than to include you in on all this fun so now it's your turn to share your favorite Christmas traditions and what Christmas means to you!  I would so love to hear!  AND as an added treat, Balsam Hill is giving away twenty-five $100 gift cards!  Simply *Click Here* to enter.




Don't forget to head over to Sharon at Mrs. Hines' Class tomorrow for the continuation of our Countdown to Christmas blog hop!  



Merry Christmas, my friends!  


"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.  We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
