Did you sing it? Did you sing it? Huh. Huh. Huh. I sure hope so!! I called the hubs as soon as I wrote it and was belting it out over the phone! He must have thought I had lost my mind! Anyhow, welcome to our 2013 Holiday Home Tour!
I am stoked to be joining 23 fabulous bloggers for four evenings of Holiday Home Tours! So grab your hot cocoa and prop up your fuzzy socked feet! This is gonna be quite the show!
I’m gonna let the pictures do most of the talking! I might pipe in with a ‘lil jingle every now an then.. ha ha!! Oh, your welcome. It’s my little gift to you!
Our tree this year, was a ‘dreamy’ one! We styled the entire tree around this one ornament, DREAM. And for good reason!
As you walk from the formal living room into the house, you come to our formal dining room. I thought it’d be nice to have two dining rooms for the holidays, but for Thanksgiving we all piled around one table… bar stools and all! And this little table sat untouched! Ha ha. I LOVE my family!!
If you spotted my Wood Scrap Table Runner… it was so easy to make and FREE! It provides a beautiful foundation for the tablescape I created using several DIY Christmas Trees and lots of pinecones!
That picture is just chock full of DIY fun… my Sparkly Burlap Napkin Rings, two DIY Burlap Trees, and my Chunky Owl Centerpiece peeking over the top! He’s so cute! Okay, let’s head on to the family room!
The sparkle of our mantel really brightens the room! And is one of dozens of places where we have little white lights.
And below the mantel sit a couple of my very favorite vintage finds…
The vintage goodness continues over on the hoosier, where I have some glass vases filled with buckeyes that mom and I picked on our mountain excursion!
And mom spotted this wooden sled at the thrift store for $1.99. I was going to pass on it. It was summer time after all! But she said, “I think you”ll regret it come Christmas”… and she was right! So glad I picked this ‘lil guy up! It’s the perfect home for my ironstone tureen filled with sparkly, snow-covered fruit!
And last, but certainly not least, my rescued Christmas tree! If you haven’t heard this story, Oh my! This tree was holding on to life when I found her on the side of the interstate! I managed to rescue her and a friend! And made a snazzy Galvanized Tree Skirt for her out of an old bucket!
I have to say, this is only the beginning of our Holiday Home! There is so much more I wanted to share, but I knew your scrolling finger may be a little tired at this point, so the hubs and I created a VIDEO TOUR for you! So, go warm up your cocoa and enjoy this brief stroll through the place we call Home.
We are blessed to have you in our home today! And I am blessed to have you visit me here each and every day!
I’d love for you to stay a while, but I do have several friends who are anxiously awaiting your arrival! Do stop by again! It’s simply not the same without you here!
Until next time,
