Christmas Home Tour

Welcome to our home…well our Christmas decorated parts…please don’t pay attention to the dirty dishes in the sink, the clean laundry ready to be put away, the Guinea Pigs sitting in the front room who have come for a weekend visit or the dirty socks left by the door.
If you were really walking into our home you would see the repurposed Grateful Tree that has been transformed to hold ‘Christmas Cards’!

I’ve kept things simple this year. Just 1 tree with all the sentimental ornaments and just a few Christmas doodads set around.

The stockings were hung with care, the garland was thrown up on the mantle…I think I created my garland mix after reading The Nester’s long ago blog post on creating Garland.

I let the kids decorate the tree and relinquished some control…

This is why it looks like this under our tree where ornaments have bit the dust falling…

I did make a change at the front door and used after Christmas Clearance plastic ball ornaments to decorate our door and added some sparkle to the wreath and garland.

My husband has informed me we are breaking the rules with our Outdoor Christmas lights by mixing white with color lights…it bothers him because he is a little OCD over the lights…the kids LOVE it and have begged for some colored lights so that’s all that matters right?

And let’s not forget our Elf ‘Nickolyn Joe’ who has been getting into trouble lately…and my favorite Caroler’s whom came from a garage sale about 5 years ago.

It has been in the 60’s here in Georgia and doesn’t much feel like Christmas outside…kids are out running the streets in short sleeves and I’m grateful because last year we were experiencing a freeze.  Funny how things change from year to year and this year I’m just enjoying my family and keeping things simple!  It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful! Merry Christmas!
