Our home at Christmas {Blogger stylin' home tour}

Are you here to see some Christmas decorations?  Well I'm glad because the halls here are decked, and whew is all I have to say.  Something about decorating for holidays makes me feel like every surface has to be festive, and then I think I end up with waaaay too much going on and a nearly blown out back.  But I guess that is part of the fun, and when it's finally complete I can always look around and feel jolly.  Nothing like twinkling lights and garlands everywhere that aren't logical the rest of the year. 

So this year I have to pat myself on the back because I have managed not to buy a single new christmas decor item!  How? Here's how: I collected TONS of foliage from my yard and my mother in laws {where the good loot is} and made garlands, wreaths and filled vases.  I painted and framed some new art. I made some paper chains with old hymnals I already had and for the biggest change I only used a selection of my ornaments so the tree could look different than in years past. 

I wanted to share my entire home for the Stylin' Home Tour, but there is just way too much ground to cover {even in under 1300 square feet!}.  So I hope you enjoy the living room in its festive state.  Check back tomorrow for some other areas of the house!  As always, thanks for visiting.


If you are here from Emmeline's blog, welcome and thank you for continuing to ride this Christmas train.  Be sure to head over to see Carmel's post at Our Fifth House after you leave here!

They're typically employed when you ought to continually look at materials in depth or when you have to do the fragile job that requires a person to have a close up view on a product.lamps

    There is no cost. The problem is, there are not enough tickets to go around. Contact your representative's local office well before you want to go bus new york to atlanta. They will try to get you tickets

  17. Hi Sarah,

    Your decoration is great and so loving. I have never seen this type of great work that has a natural impact on it. All the things you have placed for the decoration are really pretty and provide a great and decent look livable for all the people. Most of the times when we decorate our home for the Christmas we always have a dark red color prominent in our decoration but here with the white color you have gone an awesome work, Home decoration is a great thing that helps to improve the appearance of the home for a specific event or a season and when we upgrades the interior with the passage of time it provide a great impression on our relatives and friends when they come to us and enjoy their lovely time in our home.

  22. I think it is so cool that you can pick up an instrument and create something that didn't exist 5 minutes ago. You can write something that no ones ever heard before. You have music at your fingertips.
