We have been in our new house for nearly 6 months and we love it! We got some new items like a dining table, a new bed, a new sofa set, and some chairs too. Decorating a house takes time and we spent a lot of our budget on the floors, the ceiling and painting so we are taking our time in getting decorations!
A really easy to way to bring some ‘life’ into a room is with art, and with Christmas coming up – if you don’t want to put up a tree and all that, you can actually do that spending less than $50! Christmas backdrops are all the craze now. These are photographs that are high quality and brings a cool decorative element into any living space. I think it will be awesome to have this set up for a baby or pet photoshoot if you are into making family Christmas cards! They have various sizes available too.
Photography backdrops are going to be something I will definitely be investing in since we have baby on the way in the next 9 short weeks! What a cool way to make your home Insta-ready and have some fun backgrounds for month-by-month pic of baby and Cami. Isn’t this one so pretty?
Also we are waiting to redo/retile our fireplace next year so maybe in the meantime, we can fill the space with Brick Backdrops? Which one do you like? I do miss the exposed brick look that is so New York City but these pretty options really stand out to me.

Check out the new Invisible Glass EZ Grip soap-free glass cleaner and our Invisible Glass Reach & Clean Tool.
The American Cleaning Institute reported 80% of people spring cleaning will be tackling windows. Even at Invisible Glass we know that’s a painful chore so we’ve worked hard to make this easier! Invisible Glass was recently tested as the only glass cleaner tested to show zero tendency to streak. The ClearDry formula is free of soaps, scents, and dyes that cause streaks and attract more dust and grime to glass surfaces so Invisible Glass actually allows you to clean better and less often.
