It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas — My Blue and Silver Christmas Mantel!!

1 Dec
I finally got my Living Room Mantel Done! I don’t know why it took me so long. I get all of those Christmas boxes out and get overwhelmed – lol. I decided not to put up my living room tree this year, so I used the ornaments I usually put on the tree on my mantel! 
I didn’t buy anything new except for some darling .99 cent faux Mercury Glass Votives from Target!! Aren’t they the cutest???

I arranged the ornaments in a ball by connecting the hooks together.
 

I also took a frame I got for $1 this summer at a garage sale, spray painted it blue and put made a little ornament wreath to fit inside of it. I love it laying on my big mirror above my fireplace.


I also made a Ruffle Tree. I just adore it. I put it on a glass Dollar Store candlestick on my living room coffee table. I found some little finials at Hobby Lobby and put one on top. So cute!
 And I took that wooden platter I bought at Pier1 and put this cute Santa vinyl on it. I got the vinyl from the adorable Shelley from House of Smith’s Wonderfully Wordy shop!
And at night the candles are so festive. I just love candles at Christmas!!!

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! 

Go check out all of the fabulous home tours going on now!
