Christmas at my house

15 Dec

Thanks to everyone who came by to visit and those who linked up for the Homemade Gift Ideas party. There are so many wonderful ideas! The party is open until Friday, so come over and join in! 

I just love this time of year! And this week there are so many fun home tour parties going on. I just have to join in the fun!
Come on in! 
This is my silver and blue tree. I also have my little carolers and glittery ornaments in this room.
I keep my little carolers on the fireplace mantle.
Our nativity sits right by the front door.
Next down the hall, past the Christmas card holder. I made it out of a tomato cage. If you want to make one, the tutorial is HERE.
And our little bench under our family picture and Family definition vinyl. It’s a good place to take off winter boots and shoes when the kids come in from the garage.
And into the kitchen. I love my little eating nook with a little striped cake plate. I hung a wreath over the nook — it lights up at night for a little Christmas sparkle.
My kids love the Christmas Countdown advent and the countdown blocks I made.
I hung some ornaments from the ceiling for a little holiday glitz.
The family room is our colorful tree. I decided to hang my advent cones on this tree.

We love looking in the cones each day for a family activity. I bought some bubble lights because they remind me of my childhood trees.

I stole this idea for covering candles in wrapping paper from Amanda at Imprefectly Beautiful – thanks Amanda!

 and I hung a fresh wreath above the couch. I love the smell of fresh pine!
The mantle holds our stockings. I love sitting by the cozy fireplace on cold Winter nights.
 And our little family cabinet has pictures and a big snowman and burlap tree I made last week.
 And I have a little table in between my family room and kitchen where I display holiday things. Right now it looks like this:
I put a small tree in the basement, along with my snowmen collection.
Thanks for coming by!
