Hello, lovelies. Today, I’m happy to be participating once again in a Christmas Home Tour with a group of talented and creative Canadian bloggers who I admire so much! One of the things I love so much about holiday home tours is all the inspiration you can get. If you haven’t started your Christmas decorating yet, you’ll get all kinds… Read More
Hello friends, and welcome to Day 1 of the Canadian Bloggers Home Tours, the Fall Edition! You might remember that we did Canadian Bloggers Home Tours twice before, a Christmas tour and a Summer tour, but for the next few days, it’s all about Fall decorating! Today, tomorrow and Wednesday, you’ll have a chance to peek into some Canadian bloggers’… Read More
Hello my pretties! Today is a fun day around here! It’s ‘Day 2’ of the Canadian Bloggers Home Tours, and that means you’re invited to our home for a little tour. If you’ve been around awhile, thanks for coming back today, and I promise you that I have some new things for you to see. If you’re new here, welcome to A… Read More
Today I’m finally giving you a glimpse at how the twins ‘big boy bedroom’ turned out. No, I haven’t fallen in a deep dark hole or been abducted by aliens. (Although you might see an alien or two in the post – just sayin’.) But it’s been forever since I’ve been on a regular blogging schedule. Let’s just say there’s… Read More
Did you catch my post about our gold and white Christmas tree the other day? I’ve also added some other gold and white Christmas decorating touches around the house. This year’s Christmas decorating is a little more glam than usual!
Gold and White Christmas Decor: The Foyer
I hesitate to call this a Holiday House Tour like some of those you’ll see on other decorating blogs this time of year. Have you seen some of those? Wowsa, soooo beautiful, and so thorough! (If you follow me on Facebook, I’ve been sharing some of my faves over there.)
The thing is, photographing a holiday house tour requires a tidy home and well, mine, just isn’t! (Yet?). (You see my 2012 holiday house tour here and my 2011 holiday house tour here). Keepin’ it real: there’s still some random Christmas decorating bins and bags hanging out in the corners, along with the regular daily stuff that 3 kids leave behind. So to spare you from all that, I’ve just photographed some of the little pops of Christmas you’ll find around our home.
In the foyer, you’ll find our new white deer head hanging in a big green wreath (more on styling this guy in another post!), with some gold polka dot ribbon. The foyer table has a little white tree decked out in gold and light blue beaded garlands. READ MORE
Judging by one of my my more popular projects here at A Pop of Pretty (a diy painted canvas I created with an inspirational quote), it appears that a whole lot of you want to know how to create your own art. So I thought I’d show you another painted canvas that I recently created for our piano room…
