My home is decked for Christmas and I am ready to welcome you in for my Holiday Home Tour. I hope you have had a chance to visit all of the other homes that have been part of the tour this week. I have been so lucky to be joined by such a talented group of bloggers who have been happy to open their homes for you to enjoy. If you have missed them, you will find links to all of them at the bottom of this page.

Let’s begin at the front door, come on in! I will be sharing more of my front porch decorations next week! Last year I re-purposed these trees to give them a bit of a nautical touch. You can read about that at Using Rope to Repurpose Christmas decorations. We have never had a home with such high ceilings, so this meant buying a new tree this year, and a lot of new ornaments. I have to admit I think our tree looks a little bare this year, it will be interesting to see what next year brings! This tree is in our living room, but we can see it from the family room which is nice.
The dining room is just across from the living room and I am displaying this beautiful white tree in there this year. There are more photos at Dreaming of a White Christmas Tree.
I added white garland to the chandelier in the dining room to coordinate with the white tree and nestled a few of the florals from the tree into the garlands.
Even though we added this shiplap to our fireplace, it is still big and imposing, so it deserves the royal treatment for the holidays! I bought four of these faux garlands at Hobby Lobby and hung them with Command hooks. Traditional colors of red and gold dot the garland with ornaments, bows and poinsettias.In the tavern room I have these five chalkboards that hang on the wall. They have been decked out for the holidays, too! They coordinated with the holiday tablescape that I featured last week.
Since moving in we haven’t done much to our kitchen, but I have a couple of little touches of holiday cheer in here. This jolly Santa which holds a tea light (I am using a battery operated one) sits atop my tiered baskets that hold snacks.
I re-discovered these three trees in a box I hadn’t opened since we moved here and was tickled to find them and add them above my cupboards. The reindeer were on my table last Christmas, but I like them up here. I am so proud of my sign. This was a real struggle for me, but has made me want to try more. This is the first sign I have ever made and is a combination of stencils and hand-lettering. It is a good thing this was supposed to look kind of rustic!
Our bedroom only got a little touch of holiday decor but it is so pretty I will likely leave it up for a couple of months. It says Winter more than Christmas. I just filled these baskets that set above our re-purposed armoire, one with a treasured pink and white quilt which was pieced by my grandmother and the other full of icy pink florals and some faux evergreens.
