Holiday Home Tour 2012



Christmas Holiday Home Tour 2012



OK, so I *think* I’m done with the Christmas decorating.  When it comes to seasonal decorating, I have a slight problem, in case you haven’t noticed by now.   I have to make a full stop; otherwise, I could keep going until the 25th! But then I’d have way too much to take down later.  Plus, I have to move on to a million other things on my Christmas to-do list. … Keep on reading —>

Dr. Seuss Christmas Tree

Our Dr. Seuss Christmas Tree! (2012)

If you read my blog last Christmas, you might remember that I created a full-on Dr. Seuss-themed Christmas tree for our basement family room!  Well, it’s up again (yay!), and we’re still just as excited about it.

Decorate a Dr. Seuss Christmas Tree

The best thing is that this year, our 3-year old boys really ‘get it’.  Last year, they were kind of oblivious.  But now that they love “Cat in da Hat”, looking at the tree brings them endless enjoyment.… Keep on reading —>

Free Printable for Christmas

Free Christmas Printable: “I will honor / honour Christmas in my heart” (Scrooge)

Today, I wanted to share a free Christmas printable with you!

Our 8-year old daughter recently performed in a local, main stage production of Scrooge. As a tribute to that wonderful experience, I wanted to somehow incorporate a little bit of Scrooge in our Christmas decorating this year.



Miss G Scrooge



That sounds a bit bizarre, I realize, since Scrooge usually gets a bad rap this time of year: “Don’t be such a Scrooge”, “Bah Humbug”, etc.. … Keep on reading —>

Christmas vignette

Cabinet-Top Christmas Display (Vignette): Floating Bulbs in Foliage

Hello again!  I just remembered that Rhoda (from Southern Hospitality) is having a ‘Christmas vignette’ link-up today, so I thought I’d pop back and show you how I styled up a little cabinet in our living room for Christmas.  I just realized, that sentence sounds a bit like gobbly-gook. If you have no idea what a ‘vignette’ is, or a ‘link up’ for that matter, not to worry! … Keep on reading —>

blue Christmas tree decor

Our Newly, ‘Bleu-tral’ Christmas Tree (Neutral + Blue)

The other day, I showed you our Newly, Neutral Christmas Tree, decorated mostly with champagne, white and chocolate brown decorations.

Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas 2012

If you caught that post, you might remember that this is the first year I’ve decorated a completely neutral tree. I wasn’t sure how I felt about it, and I was toying with adding a little pop of blue.  (When it comes to blue, I have no self-control.)   So, after living with the neutral tree for a few days …drumroll… I decided to add a few muted blue ornaments. … Keep on reading —>

How to put ribbon on a tree

Christmas Decorating Tip: How to Add Ribbon to Your Tree

One question that we got a lot of when we decorated that Winter Wonderland Christmas tree at my daughter’s school, was how to add ribbon to a Christmas tree. So today, I thought I’d show you how I added the ribbon to my own Christmas tree this year.  I love getting new tips for Christmas decorating, so I figured that you might too!… Keep on reading —>

Winter Wonderland themed Christmas Tree Decor

Winter Wonderland Themed Christmas Tree (School Fundraiser)

I thought I’d share a few pics of the “Winter Wonderland”-themed tree that my sister and I decorated earlier this week as part of a fundraiser for my daughter’s school.  It was really hard to get crisp, bright pictures in the school’s lighting, so if you can forgive the grainy shots, I think these will give you a feel for the kinds of ornaments we used to for a sparkly, icy effect.… Keep on reading —>

Christmas mantel decor with branches

Simple Christmas Mantel Decor (Branches & Bulbs)

Yesterday, I mentioned that our neutral Christmas tree this year is a really big departure for me.  Well, the same can be said for our Christmas mantel decor.  Last year, I had a very traditional Christmas mantel, with lots of layers of full greenery, and pops of saturated color.  (That Christmas mantel decorating tutorial is found here).  I’m a really big fan of that look, but this year I was ready for a change.… Keep on reading —>

Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas

Our Newly, Neutral Christmas Tree

Any of you who read my blog regularly (and thank you if you do!) probably know that I like a good pop of color! I also like to vary the colors in my Christmas decorating each year. (Yes, I’m an alien, lol). Last year’s Christmas tree was decorated in turquoise and red, and the year before, it was turquoise and white. … Keep on reading —>
