Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 41
Hello and happy Saturday!
I am so relieved that it’s the weekend. Since the start of November, I have been running around decorating my house. So you could say I’ve been busy.
But now it’s the weekend and my daughter’s 20th birthday (time flies), and we are taking the time away from decorating and shopping to spending the day with her and celebrating a good time!
My daughter has been helping me the past ten months, setting up trees and decorating them, taking down boxes of ornaments, taking care of my Instagram, and even writing blog posts!
Speaking of Christmas chores… Whether you’ve started decorating for Christmas or don’t know where to start, begin with my seasonal and straightforward DIY Christmas Ideas Decorations. Seriously, each craft takes less than 30 minutes to make and is worth every second of your time.
A Personal Note from Janine
Last year’s pandemic was so stressful. And so, the holidays became more critical than ever. Our home was suddenly bursting with the whole family 24/7. So it was a fabulous gift to spend time with our young adult children.
All the family appreciated my decorating since any change was welcome. The trees, lights, and ornaments were a nice reprieve to all that was happening in our lives from the virus.
This year is still important, and our family is still as close as ever. But, its pandemic changed us, and our family will never be the same.
As I style our home, I’m not only decorating for you but my family. You see, my son is looking forward to coming home this winter to our fully decorated home.
He mentioned how excited he was about coming home, and this made me the happiest mom!
Hug your family, and enjoy this time of year!

I’ve always admired the antique German feather trees. But, of course, they are super expensive, so I found an excellent alternative made of wool.
So, here is my Vintage Style Feather Tree that I bought over on Etsy. It comes as a kit that, and in the end, it’s the prettiest little tabletop tree!
I have always loved decorating my little felt tree. It’s so unique and cute, and the best thing is that I built it, and it’s homemade. So try something new this season and create something pretty and cozy!

This Week’s Tip – A Cute And Washable Rug
I just bought a festive outdoor rug from Ruggable. Do you own one?
I’ve been approached by the company to collaborate, but somehow, we never connected. So, I splurged a little and bought one for our home.
This is my first rug from them, and I placed it on our front porch.
It’s a unique system which is quite ingenious! So, the top is a layer of fabric, and it adheres to a bottom mat via it’s velcro top. So, when I want to wash it, I remove it from the base and clean the top layer.
I just got this fun plaid rug and haven’t washed it yet. I’ll let you know how it holds up.
I love how fun and cute it is this winter and I’ll share how it looks and washes in a future blog post.

They are popular. I now totally understand the hype! I mean, these ornaments are adorable and so fun to place around your tree!
