23 Frugally Festive Holiday Decorating Finds + Funny Holiday Quotes

Even if we don’t need a darn thing (in the name of mindfully simplifying or heartfully preserving the ‘holy’ in the days), maybe something unexpected within this parade of festive Christmas decor finds will find you.

The Reason We Celebrate

Because before we even gaze upon the trappings or giggle – my heart is with those who feel an ache with the mere mention of the holidays. Maybe you’ve lost someone and will be moving through November and December with a fractured heart. This is for you, and sealed with so much tenderness.

I know it’s not typical to include soulful, spiritual, and faithful content alongside ornaments and silly humor. Yet life brings the sweet AND the bitter, and I’d like to offer my hand (if a blog post can ever be a hand) to hold so you feel more joined on the journey.

17. Basic Corrugated Metal Vase

So often, it is those basic essentials which can be the foundation of season decorating (in all seasons!) that are the most difficult to find. I have been searching for a few 10″ tall sized corrugated galvanized or zinc metal farmhouse vases because they are useful all year round for a casual, neutral look for fresh flowers or candles. But they are tricky to find at any price point.

The options I see at Target and Michael’s are not quite right in texture or size. Pottery Barn (above) used to carry the perfect one (the medium was 7″, the large was 10″).

This one is the most similar to PB’s and is $22.

In Case You’re Over 40 and Have Been Humming But Forgot the Lyrics…

Haul out the holly;
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again.
Fill up the stocking,
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now.
For we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
It hasn’t snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we’re in a hurry;
So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I’ve ever seen.
Slice up the fruitcake;
It’s time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.
For I’ve grown a little leaner,
Grown a little colder, Grown a little sadder, Grown a little older.
And I need a little angel
Sitting on my shoulder,
Need a little Christmas now.

    Love the set of red and white striped kitchen towels. I use these as gift wrap for wine bottles so the hostess gets an extra bonus. Place towel vertically. Put wine bottle about halfway down on the towel. Fold sides inward. Fold bottom up to the top of the bottle. Tie with ribbon.

    Michele,
    You are so welcome for the feature at Thursday Favorite Things. I love that saying about the old bags with other old bags in them just cracked me up because I have 2 bags in the garage filled with old bags. I guess I am a Mom.I loved all of those sayings, even the pistachio one too.
    Have a lovely week.
    Hugs,
    Bev
