I am excited to take you all on a little tour of our house today. I am so happy with how all of my Moms Christmas decor blended into what I already had! Come on in and take a peak!
This hangs right as you come into our home over the arch into our great room. I feel like it really welcomes people into our Christmas wonderland.
Here is our tree. We do a very traditional tree with ornaments from all of the years growing up.
I love the little wooden train that was found in a Thrift Store and the rustic red wagon was found on the curb near my Dads house for the trash man – SCORE! We wrapped up 24 Christmas books and are unwrapping 1 each night. The wagon is the perfect place to keep them all while they are waiting to be opened.
Some of my favorite things on the bookshelf:
-The NOEL is from my Mom, she has a whole set of decor that matches, including the nativity on our mantle.
-The train was my Grandfathers
I loved these little scenes while I was growing up. I use to play with them when I was a little girl and I love seeing my boys sitting and playing with them now.
The kids nativities.
My favorite things:
-Ornament Salt and pepper shakers
-The vintage Christmas tin and Gingerbread Men pillows
-Bowling Pin Santa and Mrs. Clause that my Mom made
-Vintage Hazel Atlas punch bowl and cups
-Baking Santa and the For Santa plate and cup. Its the same cup and plate I left cookies for Santa on
-Gingerbread man chalkboard
Our pool table was the perfect place to put up the Victorian town that my Mom and I collected together. I love the details of these little towns. I was so excited when I found a little figure this year of a woman selling hot cocoa and Chocolate Chips cookies (its the bottom right picture). My Mom was famous for her cookies – especially at Christmas time so it was like I found her to add to our little town!
Yep even our bathroom is decked out 🙂
My favorite things:
-Santa towels and cross stitch made by my Grandma Audrey
-Our surfer needed to get into the holiday spirit!
-Even our wallflowers have gone Christmas!
