Christmas Home Tour 2012



We've been busy decorating our house for Christmas and I've posted a lot of my progress for you here.  Today I am linking up to Jennifer Rizzo's House Walk. 


If you have not seen the 20 house tours she hosted last week, take some time to stop by and take a look.  All the homes are amazing!!!


If you have stopped here at my blog before, you've probably seen some of these images already.  Thanks for stopping back!  If you have not been here before, thanks for stopping by to see just a little bit of what I've been up to around my home.

First stop is our front entry, which I originally posted about here:





....moving on to a our living room, which I originally posted here:








Here is a peek at our Christmas tree.   And while it may appear otherwise, the champagne wasn't staging; I snapped this picture while we were celebrating our seven year wedding anniversary a bit early:


...and just a tiny glimpse at our fireplace (which needs a makeover, maybe by next year):


...moving onto our dining room, which I first posted about here:


...and a quick look backwards toward the living room....








...........moving toward the kitchen.....


...Paperwhites planted in thrifted milk glass containers....




...and our advent calendar, which I originally posted here:





....that's it for now...

If you liked what you see here, I'd love to hear about it, or have you follow along with me....

UPDATE:  I've added pictures of our Christmas Master Bedroom here


and Christmas Bath here.

    1. Hi Jennifer and thanks! I'd love to say the architectural details are all original to the home....but they aren't! We bought this home and totally gutted it and changed around several areas of the home...including the entry. I will likely post before and after photos around here at some point!
