These are a few of my favorite things... right now anyway!

December is here!  I love this time of the year.  We get everything out for Christmas, my birthday is on the 4th, shopping for presents, kid's programs at church & school, my oldest daughter's birthday is on Christmas day, spending time with family, and the list goes on & on!

I am joining in on the fun and participating in listing a few of my favorite things that Thrifty Decor Chick is hosting!  Click on the link to see what others are loving right now!

First on my list is Sugar Free Rock Star!  This is my cup of coffee in the mornings... Love it!

I absolutely love my buffet in my dining room.  Brandon & I picked it up at an antique store a couple of years ago.  It was already distress & all I had to do was paint the top black.  It used to be an old dresser, but I thought it would be perfect for my dining room to hold all of my china!

My massive Christmas tree!  We put it up this weekend & I LOVE how tall it is!  Notice the bare tree skirt at the bottom of the tree... looks like I have some serious shopping to do!

Next... I love anything with a fleur de lis on it!  I have so many of them in each room of my house.  I don't know what the fascination is with them... they just make me happy!

My new hobby... making bottlecap necklaces!  I have had the greatest time fiddling with these!  I have even opened up an etsy shop with some listed!  It is  Go & take a peek!  I wore one to church last night & received a bazillion complements!

I love all of my new yard sale finds that I have spray painted black!  I am the spray paint queen, as my husband calls me!  Ignore the popcorn ceilings... does anyone know how to remove that ugly stuff??

Have a wonderful December everyone!!!

OH Jill, your home is beautiful!! I love that you painted the top of that dresser black, what a great idea! It is perfect in your dining room! Thanks for posting!

Love your fleur de lis collection! Also, that buffet is fabulous- the black top makes it even more special.
Your tree is gorgeous too- I love all your "stuff"!
I have so many things to spray paint, but the weather has turned cold and I'm scared to do it now. I'm not very experienced. Since you're the queen :)- do you spray paint only in warm weather?

I am currently removing popcorn from a bathroom. Big mess but pretty easy. It's a very small space though. I met your sister-in-law today, Michelle. Had no idea you were related. I love the spray painted things. I may have to borrow that idea sometime.
