It’s Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas! Welcome back, everyone.
Today is sort of a special day. I’m doing Part One of my Holiday Home Tour. In an ideal world, I’d just have one home tour for Christmas, however, I’m not quite finished decorating. I know, I know. I’m probably the only blogger who didn’t have this task completed weeks ago, but whatcha gonna do? Most of it is finished, Still … my mantel needs to be tweaked, I’ve barely touched the upstairs, no gifts are wrapped, etc. So, as we get closer to Christmas (hopefully in a week or so), I’ll show you around again.
Today, in addition to the 12 Days of Christmas Series, I’m participating in The White Buffalo Styling Co.’s Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours Christmas 2014. Wow. That’s a mouthful, but it should be. Lindsay has put together a truly amazing Holiday Home Tour. It’s a week long and features over 40 bloggers. Talk about inspiration, right?
The White Buffalo Styling Co. started off the tour. (Isn’t Lindsay’s house beautifully festive?) If you’re hopping over from there, a hearty welcome to you. In case you’re new to IBC, be sure to join our mailing list, follow on social media, leave a comment, etc. I’m always excited to have new people tagging along. (Besides, this way you’ll know when I post part two of this tour.)
Now I’m going to be quiet now and show you my Christmas decorating progress. I’ll chime in here and there with links and such. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments. Oh, and you can find all my wall colors here.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I can’t thank you enough for stopping by. Please come back soon. I’ll have wine and cheese and plenty of Christmas cookies.
My front door is adorned with the DIY festive rainbow wreath I made last year.
Art print from Lindsay Letters. You should know that Elf is my absolute favorite Christmas movie.
You can get a closer look at my tree (and enter to win one) here.
As you can see I love decorating with glass ornaments during the holidays. My go-to source for new and quality ornaments is HomeGoods. They always have the best selection.
I created a little hot cocoa bar in my dining room. You can get all the details on that and three homemade hot cocoa recipes HERE.
Meet Kevin! He’s my new moose (and personal assistant).
As I mentioned above, my mantel is only halfway finished. I’m waiting for a few items to arrive in the mail. 90% of the things on it are from Target. The gold wreath is from Treetopia.
I swapped out my DIY artwork in the living room for a woven wall hanging. I love the fabulous texture.
More ornaments! (I’m telling you, hit up HomeGoods before I buy them all.)
You can DIY the colorful wood trees on this shelf with the tutorial I created lasted year. Find that here.
This is Tree #2. It’s a flocked tree that I picked up at Walmart. I tried a few different trees in this space, but none of them worked. When I put up this one, I knew I had a winner.
That’s my Holiday Photo wreath. Learn how to make one here.
These plastic deer were my Grandmas. They are one of my favorite Christmas decorations.
I also decided to put a tree in my bedroom. It’s only partially decorated. Sebastian doesn’t seem to mind.
Thank you so much for stopping by! There’s more holiday inspiration to come, so be sure to follow along.
Next up on the Blogger Stylin’ Home Tour is Bliss at Home.
Enjoy her lovely abode and tell her Michael from IBC sent you. Come again soon.
