As much as Twig & Thistle is for all of you it’s also a journal of sorts for myself. It’s a place that I can collect all the things I spot and don’t ever want to forget. This project in particular is just that. I saw this over on Design Sponge last week and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.

Inspired by Adam & Halli’s circus themed wedding (also a MUST see!) Emily and team from Once Wed created this fantastically charming circus inspired christmas decor. Truth be told, I have been putting off decorating my own tree in hopes that they’ll share the instructions for that beautiful yellow tree topper! Everything from the whimsical ornaments to the genius use of straws – it’s all just so over-the-top cute! See all the pictures here and download the ornaments and poster as well!

Stay tuned, I have an exclusive holiday card by Maddy of The Inspired Bride to share later today….

Ok, I know it’s not even Halloween yet but I can’t deny that I am looking forward to the holidays. This handcrafted stocking was sent to me by a friend and college from work. His ever so talented wife Karen, of Maggie Makes, created this beautiful stocking and I just couldn’t wait to share! A set of these would make a lovely gift to a friend or even to yourself. It’s projects like these that truly make the holidays memorable and fun. Be sure to check out Karen’s blog for the complete tutorial and other fantastic projects.
