2015 Christmas Home Tour

Merry Christmas friends! I finally found the time to get the house photographed for a Christmas tour! I had so much fun decorating some of our new spaces this year! I used only what we had with the one exception of the mantel. I crafted a couple of things with supplies on hand, and just got creative with what I pulled out of storage. As usual not much is exactly the same! πŸ™‚

Welcome and come in!

First up the family room. The new lighter wall color and of course the painted brick makes this whole room lighter and brighter!

You saw the mantel last week, but here’s the big picture.

Our tree – no color scheme here, just a tree loaded down with memories. (and maybe leaning to the side just a bit)

I added in some large c-7 bulbs this year to brighten up the dark spots, because honestly I just did not have the patience to fix another strand of lights! But, I really like the look, especially at night.

I hung this mirror here a few months back and it has been a hit with the fam! All dressed up for Christmas with a simple felt snowflake garland (DIY), and my favorite nativity that my mom gifted me with years ago (hand-painted by her). 

My chalkboard door got adorned with another DIY – a star boxwood wreath. I followed this simple tutorial here.


I set-up an extra side table in the corner of the dining area to hold a small tree adorned with lights and another nativity.

A few simple accents in the kitchen.

And here and there.

Our newly updated bathroom sprinkled with some red accents and some twinkly lights.


I really love this time of year in our home. But, not because of all the decorations. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE twinkly lights, but that’s not the focus. We do our best to keep our minds and hearts focused on THE reason for the season. You can see I sprinkle reminders everywhere! 

So thankful for God’s great love sent to earth in the form of this little baby. 

I might be a little scarce between now and January, family comes first, and we all know December is jammed packed with activities of one kind or another!! Merry Christmas!!
