Random Holiday Cheer

Hi, everyone!  As Christmas draws near, I thought I'd just share some random Christmas pics of my home.

I changed out this little shelf in my living room to reflect the season.  (This post shows how the shelf has looked in the past.) My friend Melissa made the little pictures- she stamped old Christmas book pages and put them in tiny frames...aren't they adorable?

My mom and I were at a tag sale a few months ago when I spotted this tall display rack, and my heart started beating like crazy-you know the feeling when you first see an incredible find?  It was standing outside, all dirty and neglected, but I went running over and I almost broke into a happy dance right there, it was so cheap!  I knew that it had to come home with me, and that it would make a perfect Christmas card display stand!

It fits perfectly right behind our front door!

 This pic was taken of Keith and I a few years ago when we stayed at a B&B, and met Santa! (Yea, I've lightened my hair a bit since then :)

These were my dad's skates when he was young-I'm so glad that he kept them!

First floor 'powder room'...




Well, thanks so much for visiting me!  I hope you're all having a blessed holiday season!

Festive Dining Room

Hi, everyone!  As I shared in this post, my dining room is featured in the latest issue of Creating Vintage Charm (insert wild happy dance!)  Since I had to decorate it for the magazine a few months ago, I was ready to change it out and do something different by the time December rolled around!

 I kept the same idea as before-simple and lots of natural elements.  I showed a few pics of my dining room in my last post, but here are more of the entire room...

I added this 'JOY' to the door of my barn wood cabinet that my dad made...

I changed my chalkboard from 'Tis the Season' to a tiny 'Peace' for something different...

Hope you enjoyed the tour of my dining room!  Have a wonderful day!

Our Holiday Spirit

Hi, everyone!  First I want to thank you for your overwhelming support and sweet comments regarding my last post.  You are the BEST!
Next, I'm in awe of all the stunning holiday decor out there--you peeps are talented!  I'm just going to jump on in and share some spaces here and there around my home that I've decorated.  This isn't a 'house tour', per se, just a taste of our household holiday spirit...enjoy!

  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you're enjoying this season :)
