FPFG "All Things Christmas" Link-Up of Cheer

Our tree. It's so sorry and wonky and weird.
I'll show you more pictures of it soon. Promise.

For now, I've gathered up a bunch of my Christmas Greatest Hits and organized them in one tidy place. Whilst gathering up old links, I kept getting caught up in the archives, when I had three tiny little babies at home with me all day. How do we survive this? Also, I want it back. For like a day or two.

But seriously, those archives with the off-point photography and fast-and-loose narration? That's why I started blogging, and why I'm still here chugging along.

Nostalgia Break over!

Let's get down to it.

I'm linking up to the highlights of my Christmases past. I know many of you lovelies are newer around here, so if you and I go way back, feel free to scroll past the repeats.


(OMW, how was I ever so neutral?! I don't even recognize myself.)

Since I don't have a mantel, I decorate the bathroom.

There's also:
The post in which I experience the exact confusion I wrote about yesterday, circa 2013.
And another one, circa 2012.

The first year Christmas really jacked with me.

Our Baby Bruce Jenner nativity. (Uncanny.)

Oh, and The Creeps.

Never forget The Creeps.

So, what've you got to show us?

Hit me.

Share your Etsy shop,  your adoption fundraiser, the book your wrote, the album you produced. Show us your favorite gift idea, your signature party dish. Show us your holiday hair. Your Christmas tree. Your celebrity-dopplegangar nativity. SHOW IT ALL. 

(To enter a link just click below and it'll walk you through. I just entered my Craft Party link to try it out. All you need is a URL to a specific post, then give it a name (mine defaulted to my post title, but I switched it to something more basic). It will let you select a photo from the post you're linking up to and ask for your email address. Badaboom! So easy.)


  1. Thanks for the opportunity to share my shop, Shannan!! Love your decorations! We are slacking, ours go up next week (hopefully!)

  2. You're so sweet to have a share day! I don't have too much to share yet because I'm just now ALMOST done with the decorating and I'm too pooped to photograph! Trying to keep it simple and slow over here!! Merry Christmas Shannon!

    1. Same here. I tree is barefly up...everything else is just in boxes, making me crazy.
      Maybe I'll have to throw caution to the wind and do another one next week??? It's a thought!
      I'll share more of our home at some point, humble as the decor may be. :)

  3. Thanks for letting us share our shops!! Thanks, too, for taking the time to write every day :) Your blog is always one of my favorite reads. Also -- those tissue paper trees in the window are awesome.

  4. Thank you for letting us share our blogs with you. :)

  5. Gah. I just blogged today, but it doesn't have to do with much of anything. All of my new shop news and Dressember drive info are in the newsletter I published today. Maybe I can use that link????? I'm feeling so unMerry, just like you. There is no tree whatsoever--decorated or not, pumpkins are rotting on the front stoop, and the stupid elf on the shelf just moved last night for the first time in three days.

  6. Thanks much for hosting this Christmas linky party...happy to be here today.

  7. Thanks for hosting this share day!! I'm looking forward to visiting all the links! I'm loving those red buffalo checked curtains!!

  9. Love the battery rack and that Korean mug. I love mugs!! Such a good idea to give them away!!

  10. Thanks for hosting this Christmas share party! My share is just my current goings on with a few of my photos, but it's fun to share anyway! Love your words and your fun to see all your styles from years past.

  11. I LOVE the orange garland!! Merry CHRISTmas!!

  12. Well Shannan, I 'm back! I mustered up enough energy to get some pictures of the porch yesterday, and I just had to come back and share! Thanks so much for stopping by my little blog yesterday! You have been such an inspiration in MANY ways over the years to me! So grateful for you!

  13. Thanks so much for hosting the link up! It's fun to sit at the Internet table with you and all these other lovely people.

  14. Leo calls our baby creeps Baby Chovers (his name). And I forgot about baby Bruce. That was fantastic!!!

  15. Lovely party. I'm a little more than fashionably late but I look forward to mingling.

  16. hi Shannon, first time here, nice to meet you.

  17. Okay, I'm feeling like the little girl who goes back to the dessert buffet three times! I promise, I'm done linking! Finally posted our Christmas house "tour" {really have a hard time saying "tour" and "our house" in the same sentence!}. Merry Christmas Shannan!

  18. Hello, Shannon! Thank you for hosting the party. This is my first visit to you blog. Can't wait to check out some of your previous posts.

  19. I'm a little bit behind on my reading here but I am so glad that the creep babies are making their annual appearance! And I am literally laughing out loud here in the Chick Fil A as I type "creep babies." Your Christmas house is totally awesome. : )
