12 Days of Christmas – Day 9

We are going to try something new here at Primitive Gatherings today! We will be having our first ever Home Decor Flash Sale during our live broadcast! We don’t have quite enough inventory to warrant adding it all to the website…SO…..we are going to give selling it live a try!

How the Flash Sale Works: The Flash Sale will be on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis – there are limited quantities on all Home Decor! When Lisa talks about an item, and you decide that you would like to purchase that item, you can either message Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop on Facebook – OR – text (920) 810-7203 with your name and phone number. If the inventory is available we will then respond back to you, requesting your payment and shipping information at that time. If the item is no longer available, you will be notified. When purchasing multiple items we can combine them into one shipment. Just make sure to mention your multiple items before the Flash Sale is over!!!

Here’s a fun fact… I only offer things to sell that I want in my own house (the only exception is if something is a good price point and I let the salesperson talk me into it)! Don’t wait on these super cute items as quantities are limited. Shipping is only $5.00 unless the item is oversized. For oversized items we will split the shipping costs with you. We’ll even ship it out today!

We are really excited about all the adorable home decor items that we have to offer this year. They are sure to add an extra special touch to your home this holiday season.

Decorating my house is defiantly one of my most favorite things about the holidays. I love making my home festive and welcoming, especially when I know I will be hosting guests.

For these occasions, one of my go-to must-haves is my personalized potluck pans. They make serving guests and keeping food warm a snap, and the stylish personalization is always a conversation starter. In addition to home decor, now through January 2nd, 2022 take 20% Off all potluck and deviled egg pans as well! 

Do you love to decorate your home for the holidays? Leave me a comment and tell me about it!  What’s your favorite part? The tree? The Lights? Your entry way….the whole whole house??? How many trees do you put up? Let me know in the comments for a chance to win a Home Decor prize!

    Love to decorate the house. I put up three trees. Lights outside, star on the shed. My wreath is hung. I love snowmen and Santa’s.

    I don’t have much storage so my Christmas decorating is mainly a fresh tree and ornaments. Every one has a story though, and reminiscing about them is all I need to feel warm and festive.

    Our tree is consistently the most special item of all our Christmas decorating.

    I have three trees, my favorite Christmas set up is my Christmas Story houses that I set up on my mantle. I also love to do groupings, such as red trucks, Santa’s, pincushions and nutcrackers.

    I live in New Jersey and I decorate every room , I have 4 tree’s and do the entire staircase. It’s such a happy time of the year. Saddest day Jan 2nd when I start taking it down.

    Would you believe that I don’t have any decorations out?? Just one snowman wall hanging that I made years ago.

    The tree is the number one special item, only ornaments that have significance to us go in the tree. Ornaments from traveling or from our boys, or gifted from dear friends. The outside we keep simple, once there’s several feet of snow on the ground, lighting gets buried so I’ve given up on that. Our indoors bannister looks pretty special, once that’s done I’m pretty happy.

    It has been a tradition for all the grandkids to decorate the large tree. It has been fun watching how the decorations keep getting distributed up the tree as they age one year older each year, ornaments “stacked” on top of each other (some even four, five on top of each other), or only at the edge of the branches and turned inside out. The grandkids love the tradition and there are no tears, no fights.

    We have one tree. It was purchased the year my daughter, my oldest, had her 2nd Christmas. So it’s now 27 years old. My kids love this tree so much that neither one of them wants us to replace it. With a newer version that’s slimmer and prelit. Sooo each year we dig out the old girl and the kids set it up for us.

    I love decorating for Christmas. My favorite activity is the Christmas tree. There are so many memories tied to each one of the decorations -some bring smiles and some bring tears of loved ones lost -so meaningful each year.

    I don’t have time due to work constraints to decorate the house….I’m hoping this is my last year of working before retirement, and I’ve been collecting holiday items to decorate in the future!. The last time I put a tree up, my cats decided that it looked better on the floor on its side!

    Yes, live to decorate my home. My favorite is my mantle and my three trees I decorate. One is a small tree filled with miniature ornaments, the second is an antique aluminum tree with the revolving light that holds all my glass ornaments and the third with traditional ornaments.

    I have three trees in my house – and it’s just me here! One is in the living room and decorated in red and gold to match the decor. One is in the family room that has all of the ornaments that have been given to me over the years or that I have picked up when traveling. I even have a Wisconsin ornament from when I visited PG a few years ago. The third tree is in my sewing room and has all of my sewing themed ornaments. I made a garland for the tree out of red buttons for it. I have several Christmas work projects and some itty bittie, too. Working on finishing my ornaments from the wool boxes to hang on a garland.

    I just got my one and only tree up. We’re behind because of a remodeling project. I decorate more with Christmas quilts.

    Love putting the tree up and decorating it with ornaments from over so many years of marriage (50!). But one of my favorites are our ‘smoking’ snowman and Santa from Germany purchased when we were stationed in the Air Force in England in the 70’s. Also tied for favorites are our 3 German nutcrackers.

    I started decorating before thanksgiving this year. I use quilt and pillows to bring in the color

  25. Jan Avatar

    I still need to decorate as we had Covid around Thanksgiving & still have the fatigue factor. One year when my niece was getting bored I told her to count the trees. I have ceramic, feather, small & large table top trees. I think her total was 7 or 8 & that was just the 1st floor. Since today is nice I’m headed outside to sweep the porch & put up my window wreaths.

    I usually put up two small 3 foot trees in the living room and kitchen area. My granddaughter ( 5 years old) is visiting this year, put up a 5 foot tree in the living room especially for her. Extra lights and decorations in the yard for when she arrives. My husband inherited a Santa collection from his mother, so the kitchen area is decorated with Santas, over a hundred.

    Love the potluck trays, especially the one for deviled eggs.

    I love to decorate for each season and at Christmas time my Santa collection fills every display space. I decorate all of our main living spaces. We now only do one tree, and it is decorated with a lifetime of ornament memories.
    I now love adding my finished Christmas quilts throughout the house.

    I love Christmas! The first & most important is a clay Nativity set that goes on the mantle ~ it was a wedding gift from 51 years ago.♥️ The second favorite is a sweet little Primitive tree that holds decorations from family & friends throughout the years, then there are little quilts, lights & fun items all around the house. Have a Blessed Christmas!

  31. Meredith Avatar

    I especially love putting up the beautiful decorations made by my very talented mother, who passed away eleven years ago, tiny hand stitched bears, little mice in stockings, and Santa with his bag of toys. Treasured memories.

  32. Sheila Plock Avatar

    Love decorating this time of year with all the things I have made or collected over the years. Love your welcoming house pictures. I noticed something I have to ask you about to the left of your fireplace on the bottom shelf. I have a set of old metal jello molds which look like yours but you have made baskets out of them???Can you send me a closer picture and tell me about them.

  48. Vickie Avatar

    The tree is my favorite. I get to see all the ornaments my mom gave me each year starting in 1953 and the last one 2002. She passes away in 2003. My son has taken over where my mom left off. We decorated 4 trees at his house this year. His collection started in 1976 and I have continued the tradition of a new ornament each year. Hand made of course!

  49. barb Avatar

    Love to decorate. I put up six trees and lots of santas that I’ve made but my vintage tree is my very favorite! I have the ornaments I grew up with and have collected them for years. They’re getting harder to find those vintage ornaments.

  50. Peg U. Avatar

    I usually put up 2 trees – the large tree is decorated with ornaments collected over the years (each year, a new one is added). The smaller one in the family room is decorated with all acorn ornaments – I have fun looking for new ones to collect that I don’t have.

    This Christmas queen loves to decorate – the entire house (bathrooms, too) We put up 2 trees – and for the first time in 15 years it’s a real one. A Frasier fir. This is our first Colorado Christmas. We left the artificial one behind when we moved from Florida:) The second is a smaller, table top artificial tree that’s full of Hallmark miniature ornaments that I’ve collected for years. I also have a Santa collection that grows by 1 every year, as well. I think hanging ornaments is my favorite part. I have hundreds and each truly is a memory.

    I don’t mind decorating. I start with changing out all my quilts and putting up my pillows and mantle decorations. We only put up one tree. This is first year it is artificial To old to deal with all the dead needles at the end of Dec.
    now if someone would take all the stuff down and decorate for me that would be excellent
    I really don’t have the knack to make my house look cute like others. I need a fairy or elf to do it for me every season.

    I do like to decorate for Christmas! My favorite part is usually my fireplace, with a couple old red trucks that are carrying my bottle brush trees. I put up about 4 decorated trees, 1 big, the rest smaller. Merry Christmas!

    I decorate the inside and outside of my house. I love being able to change out my quilt’s. I have a ceramic nativity set that my mother painted back in the 70’s and it goes on my front porch, she painted the angles hair the same color as my daughter’s. It brings back happy memories every time I set it up.

    I love decorating for Christmas but haven’t had enough time to do it the last few years. My favorite part is the lights, so last year I only had an artificial tree with lights. I was able to do a little more this year, and the first thing I did was put up the tree and lights.

    Even though all the decorations of Christmas are special to me, I especially enjoy putting a troll (that holds childhood memories of Christmas past ) on our tree, as well as, putting up the Nativity set my husband and daughter gave me when I was going through cancer treatments ( it gave me strength to continue to fight).

  66. Joyce Jensen Avatar

    We put up two trees. One is a pretty traditional tree with bulbs and the other tree is rustic looking with wooden ornaments my husband has made, and wool and quilted ornaments I have made. I also have lots of snowmen on display that stay out until February. Snowmen are my favorite.

  67. Kristy Avatar

    Even though we will be alone this Christmas, we decorated the whole house. Christmas needs to be special even during hard times. All my homemade stockings and ornaments are my favorites.

    My favorite Christmas dec is to put one electric lighted lighted candle in every window (33) of the house. They are on a timer and look amazing when all other lights in the house are off. That gives a contemplative mood to remember Christmases past especially with those no longer with us.

    I LOVE decorating for Christmas! My favorite part is putting up our big tree and filling it with ornaments that I have made, or our three daughters have made, over the years. Homemade ornaments from my friends are also included. Everything is homemade on the tree-never any exceptions!! (That’s my rule!) It is always a conversation piece with guests to our home! (Oh,and I have five other decorated trees.)

  76. Joan Avatar

    I love decorating for Christmas! I will admit I don’t do quite as much as I use to since I have gotten older. One tree just has ornaments which I made or the kids/grandkids made, and also ornaments my husband and I picked out from different places we have traveled to. It is fun seeing them every year!

    I love everything about decorating for Christmas! I have a full size tree in every room and each has a different theme. My favorite is my Texas tree that has ornaments from the state capital that are a fundraiser for renovations and it is covered with Texas flags instead of garland. We married December 30th 21 years ago and so I especially love this time of year! Happy Christmas to you and your amazing staff! 🎄❤️😁

    I love decorating & being in my home at Christmas. I have been collecting Christmas decorations since I was a young girl. For many years my grandma and I went shopping the big 75% off Christmas decoration sales the day after Christmas. My husband & I purchase ornaments on our vacations so sitting in my living room looking at Christmas decorations fills me with so many wonderful memories.

    My granddaughter wanted me to get a house with stairs when i moved to be closer to her. So, I wrap garland on the bannister and put some wrought iron timer candles in the windows. I also love to see the tree with the lights thru the sidelight windows. Everything looks so festive. I got everything here and there and they were not too expensive and will be adding more each year. This is my second Christmas lere.

I love homemade ornaments and have some special ones that I made with my mom and sons. The wool applique items that I’ve created in the last ten years has added warmth and festiveness to our decor.

    I like putting out Santas, snowmen, Byer’s carolers, German nutcrackerss & handmade items I’ve purchased through the years, mainly when we lived in Indiana. They had the best crafters there & items were priced amazingly low.
    Now we live in Colorado & have a 7 ft slim tree & a “Colorado tree” ….a skinny pine…decorated with outdoorsy type ornaments.

    I am more inspired to decorate when our kids come for Christmas; other times I’m not so enthusiastic.

    I used to put up 14 trees. We just love everything Christmas! Now since we moved we don’t have room for all the trees and I kinda of miss that part. Now we concentrate on trying to help others and doing for others during the holiday season. We realize how lucky we are as a family to be so blessed that we really try to pass it on to those less fortunate now especially with those hit by these bad storms and hurricanes. It’s wonderful seeing my children give to others and give their time to help others and even my grandchildren.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks of, and misses, loved ones no longer with us. Decorating our Christmas tree, reminiscing about special ornaments, most homemade by my generous mother.

Several quilts and pillows, can’t have enough of them. Merry Christmas.

    I love to decorate our wonderful 225 year old stone home and the decorations change seasonally, especially my quilts. After 50+ years of collecting, hand made ornaments and teddy bears take the favored spots along with family photos and memories of Christmases past.

    For the past 20 years I have been collecting hand carved / folk art wooden snowman. They are on my mantle in the living room. I also have wooden carved trees behind them. I adore them and so does everyone who visits. Merry Christmas Lisa, to you and your family.

    My holiday decorating always includes some of my vintage quilts (the red and white ones especially) and my collection of primitive Santas that fit on the mantle. My Christmas tree has gotten smaller over the years but the quilts and Santas always are make an appearance. I really appreciate all of your creativity throughout the year. Happy holidays to you and your family and staff.

    I love to decorate all thru the year, but Christmas is my favorite. We have a 10 foot tree in the sun room that is a “bird tree “ with lots of cardinals, as my husband is a bird watcher. The family room tree is in red and white with lots of snowmen. My living room tree is my favorite, as it has all the ornaments that our 2 daughters made when they were young and all of the ornaments that we have collected over the years. I also love to decorate our fireplace mantle in the living room. 🎄🎄

    A nativity set I’ve had for many years is my very favorite thing about Christmas decorating at my home.

    I enjoy decorating for the holidays. We have 2 small trees. One just has white lights red berries and pine cones that I like to leave out til the snows melt. I keep some other winter decor out also til the snows melt. I love snow and Christmas!

    I love decorating for Christmas, the trees, the lights, the porch, Santas and snowmen and favorite Christmas quilts, the manger scene. I love it all.

    I love to decorate the house. I have favorites that I put out every year and add new things too. I usually start the first weekend in December and do a little everyday until December 20th. Then I call it quits! I need to finish some of my quilt and wool projects and find wall space for them.

    We love to decorate for Christmas. Even though our 2 daughters are grown, we still have a tree decorating day where they come over and spend the day putting up and decorating the tree. This always takes place before Halloween…yep before Halloween. Then I have 4 smaller trees placed throughout the house. I so enjoy drinking a cup of coffee or tea while sitting in the dark by the light of the trees.

    Oh my gosh, I love to decorate for Christmas. My hubby thinks I go way overboard! I don’t care … it’s the most important birthday of the year, after all! The more the better IMHO! 🎅🏻

    I love decorating for this season. Decorating has been adjusted this year because we have a 2 year old grandson here several days a week. Only unbreakable things within his reach. Then everyone can relax and be merry.

    It seems there are a lot of Christmas decorations in our home at Christmas. My favorite is probably the lights and the Christmas music that plays from the day after Thanksgiving until New Year’s Day, all day long.

    My favorite part is a little ceramic tree that I have had for years. It’s not Christmas until the little tree is plugged in.

    I don’t have many decorative items in my house but would love to have a pretty homemade table runner or some really fun decor to brighten up the dinner table. Right now I am decorating a doorway from kitchen to living with a string of Christmas cards and a few simple Christmas ornaments. My quilters guild has a Christmas ornaments exchange every year so would like to start participating and make some handmade wool ornaments for the exchange and to give out as gifts. I am thrilled to have found you to get inspiration and ideas! ❤️❤️❤️
