MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Praying for you and yours to have the Merriest Christmas and a joyous holiday season!   "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.  We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." -John 1:14 "For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders.  And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." -Isaiah 9:6 This Christmas, I am confident that our ONLY true hope, comfort, and peace in the midst of any circumstances is found in Jesus.  I am so grateful for the Father's indescribable gift to us- His only son- and that through a personal relationship with Him we can have eternal salvation and the joy that only He can bring in this life!  My love to you all this season, and as always thank you for being here! 💖...

2023 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR || CHRISTMAS TREE AND LIVING ROOM

Hello friends, welcome to Part 3 of this year's Christmas home tour- my Christmas Tree and Living Room! (Click here for Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed them.)  I continued to concentrate on red, pink and green accents where I could, but I can't help but have lots of other colors in the mix as well.  I know I'm coming in under the wire sharing these tours with you so late this year but I've had personal commitments that have put this on the back burner.  So, I hope you'll enjoy just soaking it in this year even though it's too late to give you any ideas for your decorations this year, but considering pinning and saving what you might want to remember for next year!  I'm not going to comment much, there are a lot of photos so just enjoy scrolling!   I brought the green mirror back in that I haven't used in the past few years-  It actually paired with an old dresser that we bought years ago at a yard sale but after painting it green I've always liked ...

2023 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR || DINING ROOM

Hello friends, welcome in to my Christmas Dining Room today!  I'm excited to share Part 2 of my Christmas home with you, click here for  Part 1  and  Part 3  if you missed them.  I still have quite a variety of colors, but this year I'm highlighting pink and green in a few spaces more prominently, but red is still strong in the mix as an accent color too.  We'll get to the table in a moment, but if you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that a little white back I snagged a pair of the elusive giant nutcrackers that flew off the shelves (after searching availability in neighboring towns where I could do a pick up then a morning road trip to round them up!). I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them at the time but knew they would find a home. And they did!  I love them in this spot flanking the china cabinet.  I didn't worry about any of the artwork behind them, just set them in front of what was there.  I've seen several shared that have been pain...

2023 CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR || PORCH AND ENTRY

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  I'm excited to share the first of this year's Christmas home tours with you today, we'll start with the Porch and Entry.  (C lick here for  Part 2  and  Part 3 .)     Last year I took a little turn and used more traditional plaids with red, green, and light pink, but this year I'm back to a bright and cheery color palette and pink gingham ribbon!  I generally keep a similar look from year to year but always try to switch things around and use them in different places, or change little details here and there.   Last year I used several colors of satin table runners to make big, fluffy bows.  This year I used the green ones mixed in with red and pink gingham ribbon.  My porch bows get bigger and bigger every year, ha! I got a new flocked wreath and garland this year, the ones that I've used for the past 5-6 years had turned brown and were looking pretty sad.  I bunched groups of 3 ornaments up with a pipe cleaner and ...
