Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
It's that time of year ! Everyone's busy decorating and shopping for that special someone.
We have had our home open for Charity's as part of Christmas Home Tours in the past
where you buy a pass/ticket to many decorated homes for the holidays.
Many homes have their unique styles. From Country homes to City they all rose to perfection.
Since owning and operating a Country Collectible store some years ago I have always
enjoyed Christmas decorating.
I especially enjoyed dressing the front store window for all the kiddies
to press their wee faces against the window pane and watch
with excitement the antique mechanical toys.
So sometimes I tend to go overboard in my decorating but not this year!
I'm keeping it simple and uncluttered.
When decorating be true to yourself.
Many homes that you will see will inspire you
but Love what you have, don't get discouraged.
Many of my decorations are thrift store purchases as
well as dollar store items.
The small faux trees are dollar store finds.
I've used faux branches from HomeSense (HomeGoods in the US)
for fillers as well as snow covered stems from the dollar store.
I have incorporated reds, white, grey and plaids into my decorating this
year for a Rustic Country look!
The stockings hung on the bannister are made with tree burlap and stuffed with a bell on the toe.
I made these a few years ago and are so easy to make and a bag of tree burlap is so much easier on the
pocket book than burlap by the yard at the fabric store.
Add a string of lights , some garland from HomeSense (HomeGoods in the US) and some
Many Owls, bleached pinecones, plaid ribbon, red decorations, garland and faux fillers fill our tree!
Loving my new Antlers in Silver glitter and the wire nest purchased at HomSense
(HomeGoods in US) that hang on the Living Room wall.
I hung some plaid ribbon around them to resemble a scarf!
Our Living room leads into our kitchen where I have carried red and white onto
the table and hutch.
Tomorrow I will tour you through our kitchen down the hall
and down into our Great Room where we spend time with family
Until then friends!
