FRIDAY FAVORITES...CHRISTMAS CHEER

I can’t say I have favorites this week so I’m pulling from 2 weeks ago! But I do have a baby boy turning 24 tomorrow so that is DEFINITELY a favorite.

1. Grand Rapids Highlights

I showed much of our overnight in Grand Rapids on Instagram but putting a little here too. The hotel we stayed at was new and new to us and had a European feel. We really liked it and the attached French Portico restaurant.




The day after the concert we went to a quaint shopping area in Grand Rapids called Wealthy Street. So many charming shops and at a retro dinner I had a boozy coffee drink, and we enjoyed some yummy Mexican there as well.

You all loved this sweater and I do too...so outfit deets right here:

Before heading home, we went to my first Crumbl Cookies store. Ok lots of hype here. They were good but Mr. Nine immediately said that my cookies are better, and I wholeheartedly agree. But now I know and if I were near another one again, I would try some more.

VERY MERRY WITH WOODEN SHIPS

Bringing out all the holiday cheer my dears. You know that I absolutely love Wooden Ships! I can tell you that I would be giddy to get one of these beautiful knit sweaters under the tree and I’m sure you would as well along with your loved ones! They have dozens a beautiful hand knit sweaters to choose from and I love that they often have seasonal, and holiday geared ones!
I’m one of those festive girls that two decades ago used to wear the very ornate holiday sweaters albeit very classy, but I’m not really into those types of sweaters anymore nor the whole concept of the ugly sweater, instead I want cute and stylish and that is what these two Christmas themed Sweaters from Wooden Ships has to offer!

 

 First Up, all the Holiday Cheer indeed! Based on a hunter green knit, the holiday cheer font is so darn cute! I shared this on Instagram last week and a follower said it was sone of the cutest Christmas sweaters she had seen and I completely agree.


I found the perfect setting for these photos and loved that I had a beanie hat to match!



What is also great about Wooden Ships is that many of their designs come in numerous colorways!



Eat, Drink and be MERRY on the porch with me is what I am titling these photos! Look how cute the Merry is on the olive green! I added some olive-green Short Gloss Hunter Boots and Hunter Boot Socks to add to the festiveness! 



This one is a nice chunky crew neck knit that will keep you so warm and I added a little pop of white with a button up underneath. I thought it looked great with the faux leather Spanx leggings.


They literally are the best sweaters and I love getting behind a company such as Wooden Ships that gives back so graciously to the community and the entire world! Family owned and family ran, you cannot go wrong with these hand knitted gorgeous sweaters! They literally have dozens of amazing styles and not only do they cater to the fabulous season at hand but they pretty much have a sweater for every need and occasion you could think of!


The highest quality Knits, I always feel so cozy when I wear a Wooden Ships sweater, and I like to think I’m an expert now on them as this is my eighth sweater to own from them!

AND The important news is my love of WS and a fabulous promo code so you can get one for yourself and gifts for those you love with 15% off the entire website!!

ANDREANINE01


You will have so fun shopping their website and knowing that not only are you buying the finest and cutest high-quality sweaters, but you are buying from a family owned and philanthropic company that loves to help others. You can’t go wrong, and she is going to smile when she opens her Wooden Ships Knits under the tree!

2021 CHRISTMAS HOME DECOR

Home for the holidays, soaking in the season, decking the halls, baking the treats; I’m doing it all! Last year, I included my Indoor Christmas Home Decor and outside porch in separate posts so I'll do that again this year. However, they haven’t really changed much. Just a few new additions and yes, a few new trees. There is the magnificent addition of two 7-foot cashmere skinny trees flanking the buffet hutch in the dining room and a few other touches here and there but much of it is basically the same because I love it.

I will admit sometimes I get the itch to change it up. Every year I want to add an additional tree, LOL! But it’s like at this point, where would I put it, LOL! This post really does not cover everything but it highlights my favorites. CHEERS to The Magical Season!

 

Be my guest any time in our Christmas guest bedroom! I will serve you hot cocoa and lay out some Christmas pajamas, LOL! I love this room. 

Similar Bedding HERE. Wish you could see it all in person.




The hall tree of course is always one of my favorite spots with the buffalo plaid and red. This year the new additions were the Buffalo Plaid hat (under $10) in the middle up on top and the Buffalo Checked Pillows from Target with the little red pom-pom balls (also only $10). I just love this. Except, sidenote the top foot of the tree has the lights burned out but I’m just going to leave it for this year, LOL! You know what a pain it is to fix that!!! I've actually added a few more ornaments but too tired to take another pic, lol!


 I have all the same tiered trays as last year. You can see them all in this POST.

 I love them all; the Santa one, the Buffalo black & white checked one, but the hot cocoa one here will forever remain my favorite! You can get the wood beads and Cocoa signs HERE, Marshmallow Mugs HERE and Faux Whipped Cream Mug Toppers HERE


I really do ponder changing up the big tree, but I have so much invested in the red and champagne ornaments, and it really is beautiful! Part of me wishes we would’ve done soaring ceilings so I could have like a 12-foot tree, LOL! One day I may change it up but for now she’s a beaut Clark!




Here is the dining room with the addition of the two 7-Foot Cashmere Tress. The champagne pick toppers came from Hobby Lobby, and I am so in love. I even added one to the other dining room tree. When I went back to get the third one, I couldn’t find them anywhere but spotted them in a plastic bin way way up top so I climbed the display yes, post-surgery, just to get them down.

Similar Champagne Topper Picks HERE



And the Flocked 7ft slim on the right 
is a favorite too that I added last year.

Ready to maybe change up the fireplace decor as well. Our fireplace is two-sided and a little bit more modern so it’s not your typical mantle like I used to have but I really do love the red and white!


This year I added some red and white Striped Ribbon to the barstool wreaths, and I love how it turned out, I just took the ribbon all the way down into the seam on the front and stuck a T-Pin in there to keep it in place.


One of my favorite things in the kitchen is the little wreaths up top that I got at the Dollar Spot at Target and added the striped ribbon.


Just a little corner vignette, love the red, black and white 

and striped poinsettia picks.


Sweet Little snow tree that I took a 4 ft flocked for $27 from Walmart, 

took the legs off and put it in a basket.


This is the second year for our blue, champagne and silver 7ft flocked tree in the master bedroom! I absolutely love it! No, we do not keep it lit all night long, LOL!

The little potted pre-lit (only $16) Flocked Tree on a table so sweet.
Red and White Candy Ornaments HERE

You can always follow me on he Free LikeToKnowIt shopping app where I link up not only fashion but most of my decor. Just search for livingoncloudnine9

AND A BIG THANK YOU TO MR. NINE for getting all the trees on Timers and Alexa prompted. 

All right sweet friends, I’m going to grab some Bailey’s and coffee or a hot cocoa and bask in the glow! I love you all and I hope you are already enjoying the season!
