Peace on Earth

Hello all, and welcome to the Creating Christmas Party! Jann’s Daughter, Kylee, here. I hacked into my moms blog to launch this exciting blog party. Some of you may know, my husband and I just got back from a year long trip traveling the world. We spent time vagabonding about in Europe and Africa and made some incredible memories. We have been home for only a month, but made it back just in time for the holidays!

My mom was kind enough to let me decorate the basement where we have been living. Of course I wanted to stick to the travel theme so I grabbed all my vintage globes, some vintage suitcases and gave them a Christmas glow.

Vintage books are the home to little glitter houses, Christmas postcards from travels, and of course another globe.

I hope you all enjoyed my travel inspired Christmas décor. But more importantly I hope you all can strive to create more peace on this beautiful earth. Love, Kylee

Looks awesome, Kylee! I love how you mixed in your travel theme with vintage globes & suitcases. They are both items that I love to collect and just may have to incorporate into my décor next year.

Have a great day,

It looks great. I love that the globes that reminds you of your travels, also reminds me that this is a time of celebration in many countries and in different religions.
