My Home at Christmas

For some reason it took me longer than usual to get my home decorated for the holidays this year. While I usually get it done over a weekend, this year it seemed to evolve over several weeks following Thanksgiving. I’ve shared my holiday toy truck, shirt pillow and snow globe projects with you in previous posts. In this post, I thought I’d show you a few other things I’ve done around the house to decorate for the holidays.

I featured these window screens in my very first blog post last year. I decided to repaint them charcoal gray which I think gives a little more weight to the fireplace than the previous blue color. I flanked them with rustic lanterns and intertwined fairy lights through magnolia leaves, pine cones and a “noel” sign.

The family room got some red plaid flannel pillows, a cable knit throw, and a small tree.
The round mirror in the dining room has been encircled with faux greenery and red berries.
I placed a few pinecones in my antique ironstone egg cup collection inside my dining room hutch. A few sprigs of cedar add life and draw attention to this area behind glass.

Rolled up red and white hand towels are displayed on the bamboo shelf. A cinnamon spiced candle surrounded by pine cones and cedar adds festive color and fragrance to the bathroom.

Over the toilet is a festive holiday sign that I topped with a red bow and some greenery. I changed out the towels on the hooks over the tub with pretty red ones that I bring out only at this time of year.

 A red velour pillow, a scented candle and a faux fur throw cozy up the master bedroom.

The crewel work “Holly Jolly” pillow was made from a placemat from Target, while the larger pillow in back was crafted from an old sweater.
A bunch of faux mistletoe on a beautiful crystal hanging from the door knob at our entry door is a lovely reminder to kiss the ones we love often.

I’d like to sincerely thank all my dear readers for your support and encouragment during my first year as a blogger. Every comment, like, share, pin, or repost means the world to me. I wish you all a safe and happy holiday season. Merry Christmas!

  1. Ah, but your tree doesn’t sport the “We own a cat” look the way mine does. You should know it’s the latest fashion among dog and cat owners to have the star tilt waaaay to the left, have the lights half-pulled off the bottom branches, ornaments and needles all over the floor, and the tree skirt wrapped around the bundle of wires you don’t want the cat to chew. 😉

    1. Surprisingly, he hasn’t been interested in the tree. He prefers chewing shoes these days! Your tree sounds like it has been very much enjoyed. 😊
