2012 Christmas House Tour

We were supposed to be hosting a Christmas Brunch for my Bible study today, but instead the kids have a stomach bug. I thought I'd take the opportunity to take a few photos while everything was clean and set for company. 

Fun picture frame wreath thingy I found on Pinterest:


Most of our Christmas ornaments are yarn or cloth and super kid friendly. They also tend to disappear from the bottom of the tree quite frequently and we have to hunt them down throughout the house.

Great Room:

Cinnamon Potpourri:


Dining Area:

I think this is my favorite element this year. I have always loved antique silverware on wreaths. My grandmother, who passed away earlier this year, left me some and I thought this was a great way to remember her in my Christmas decorating. 

Our wonderful snowman countdown calendar from T.J. Maxx with two 9's.

A little cheer in their bathroom:

  2. I love it all! Your home is beautiful and I look forward to reading your posts een though I don't comment much. I love the silverware on the wreath!

  3. Hi Rachel, Your home is absolutely beautiful. You have a talent for decorating. It is all so eloquent and yet simple . . . does that make sense? It is all so lovely. Hope you and your family have a blessed and Merry Christmas. I'm sure your grandmother would be very proud of you!
