Holiday Home Tour 2012

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

My holiday decorating for this year is complete. So grab something warm to drink (because it is finally cold here) and take a peek inside! Imagine soft christmas music playing as you tour ;).

Kitchen breakfast area

Christmas goodies inside my Aidan Gray - Restore Domes. Richard says they look like they are in jail, but I like it! 


Custom chalk drawing from Richard and my DIY yarn wreath. Aren't we crafty!?!

The mantel. I used fresh garland this year and I love the fresh feel and smell!







I found a happy new spot for our nativity. It now sits behind the sofa and I love it here. The kids can see it well and it is taking up a surface that we need for functional stuff. The lamps cast a pretty light on it too.

Our DIY wood wreath from last year.

The tree! We are total REAL tree converts. It is not too expensive, easy to do, smells great, and looks so pretty! This is a frazier fir. 

Richard said not to flocking, so Mia sprinkled "snow" on the tree instead. Can you see it on the branch here? It adds a nice sparkle!

Table scape. I used a lot of fresh trimmings from getting our tree. They are free for the taking at Lowes!







View through the front door.
We decorated the outside too, so I will post pictures of that later this week. Our neighborhood gives out awards and we have always wanted to win! Our neighbors do a beautiful job that is hard to beat though...but maybe this year???

  1. Beautiful! So glad you are able to enjoy a fresh tree. While the practical side wants to buy a fake tree, I just can't seem to do it. Too bad your blog can't be a scratch & sniff as I bet your house smells amazing!
