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! 🙂
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!
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).
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.
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!!
