My Home

Christmas Home Tour 2011

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Hey all, as promised here are a few shots I took over the last couple of days of our home this holiday season.  I’m keeping it simple, my decor this year is mostly garland for scent, poinsettias scattered here and there, ornaments in various vessels, and always branches ~ simple touches since I want to spend most of the next week enjoying the twinkle lights, the baked goodies, the traditions, and our family.

I’m officially done with all the decorating, welcome to our home this Christmas season!

Crimson & White Christmas Tree

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

Today is the last of the Holiday Home parties, and Sarah is hosting Christmas trees, so it’s the perfect occasion to show you ours.  Just like last year (and because it reminds me of my grandmother who always had the same) I picked up another flocked tree at a local lot.  Instead of a tree skirt, we placed it in a wine barrel for a rustic look.  I’m using up all of my red decor this year, so the tree is covered in various favorite ornaments and also bulbs and flourishes in crimson shades.

Wedged in the tree are several branches of red berries for color and contrast.
