Welcome to the first day of the 12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes!
I’m so glad you’re here, and am excited to kick off the tour by sharing my home. It’s going to be a great twelve days of beautiful homes, so come on in, sit back and enjoy!
Mother Nature knew you were coming, and brought some Christmas snow just for the occasion. It definitely makes the wreaths in the window look even more festive. As my son put it, “wreaths are our thing.” Suffice to say,
I’m a wee bit obsessed it’s a recurring theme.
Come on in! Don’t mind the giant, curious dog.
If you’re new here, the fireplace is a newly completed DIY project – a year in the making and the longest project ever. Was it worth it? Yes. Will I do masonry again? No
Suffice to say, it’s been a lot of fun dressing it up for the holidays. Finally.
The centerpiece is simple with candles and greenery from the yard on a silver tray.
I wish I could take credit for these cute Santa napkin rings – I actually picked them up at a garage sale earlier this year. An easy DIY though. So cute.
I think this is one of my most favorite Christmas decorations. It was made after my great-grandmother died over thirty years ago, using her costume jewelry. I love it, even in its faded glory.
Our basement is where we do most of our holiday entertaining, so let’s take a peek.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you about the wreath hoarding.
I’m proud to say that I actually made the wreaths that are hanging on my barstools.
We even swapped out the Indiana Jones movie poster for Buddy the Elf. Love him.
I have been meaning to add a chalkboard to this unused niche, and I finally got to it. Now if only I could get my chalk letters more to scale…
Since this is the entertaining space, we added a second tree down here this year. You need a tree to enjoy with friends and family, right? I love that it’s small, simple and easy to decorate. There’s something to be said for simple when it comes to the holidays.
