Christmas Home "Tour"
I have to laugh at the thought of showing y'all our Christmas decorations and calling it a tour because I basically can stand in the same spot and spin and boom...done. But we'll pretend it's bigger than a shoe box.
Let's do a spin of the house.
Of course you guys saw this already but my friend was quite impressed with it when she saw it. I suspect when my mom sees it, she'll ask when I can make her one. (To which I will laugh heartily and wait for her to forget)
This half olive bucket was my purchase from Antique Farmhouse a few months ago. I knew when I saw it that I could have fun decorating it for fall and winter.
You remember this from the crate decoration tutorial earlier in the week. It sits beside the Tannenbaum sign.
The decorations stayed pretty much the same on the armoire from last year but there was an addition or two. The mercury effect deer on the top shelf is from Lowes for $10. I love it! On the stack of books is an antique hot cocoa tin from Holland I picked up at the Traverse Commons in Michigan. I picked it up and put it down 3 times before committing. I'm glad I did.
(Sorry the pic is blurry, it was dark) Of course Grandma's gumdrop tree is displayed on the bottom shelf. If anyone is worried about the candles in precarious places, they're Luminara Tea Lights. The best investment we ever made. So many places we can now stick candles that real ones would burn.
Then we have the mantel area. Lots of greens, a vintage ceramic tree and Christmas carol book and a coal bucket with birch logs.
The skis that I stripped hang nicely above the couch with some greenery swags from Trader Joe's. The smell is so lovely...I'm smelling them as I type. I love the Winter Wonderland lumbar pillow from Pottery Barn and am glad I got it because I don't think they sell it this year.
Have you guys decorated yet? Real tree or faux? What colors? If you don't celebrate Christmas, what decor do you use for your holiday?
