‘Cause we need a little Christmas right this very minute. Or not. But I mean, candles in the windows, hearts full of expectant wonder…and 23 Frugally Festive Holiday Decorating Finds + Funny Quotes. Also. Clearly we need a little humor and a few funny quotes to get through this thing called life.
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.
Lovely Festive Holiday Decorating Finds Under $20
Because no matter how you celebrate or decorate, the season of Mariah Carey carols at the spinet (wait…what?) and folding dollar bills to slip into slits of red kettles will be upon us.
How will we keep the holidays peaceful, rich in love, and echoing with the magic sound of sleigh bells like the genius ornament above?

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.
For under 20 bucks, this one’s not quite as tall…

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.
