Christmas Home Tour 2013

Thanks for Sharing!

Welcome friends and newbies!  Happy Friday to you.  I’m so excited to be apart of Home for the Holidays virtual Christmas Home Tour!  I adore Christmas… yes I’m one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music in September.  Getting to share our home all dressed up for Christmas is a thrill.

I’m honored to be a part of Home for the Holidays and helping to finish off an amazing week of Christmas Home Tours.  At the end of this post you can find the links to all the gorgeous homes that participated.


So come on in and make yourself at home…

I reused one of my favorite Christmas crafts from last year… Epsom Salt Pinecones.

Our family room is the hub of our home.  It flows right into our kitchen and nook.

The armoire got decked out with some wreaths adorned with festive red bows.

Dollar Store Wreaths hanging on armoires

These wreaths were from Dollar Tree… but decked out they look like a million bucks. (I’ll be sharing more about them and the wreaths in our kitchen nook later next week)

In our desk / homework area in the corner I placed the Pottery Barn inspired Peace Love Joy burlap pillow I made.

Our Christmas mantel really showcases the feel of my Christmas décor this year… I’m calling it rustic glam.

I am loving that galvanized bucket… I found that cutie at Marshals.

I filled it with some faux berries and some evergreen clippings from the yard.
