Welcome to our Holiday Home
I enjoy seeing how other people decorate at Christmas and have been visiting a lot of other house tours on-line. Here is a little peek into mine.
It's been a busy and eventful year so I decided simpilicity was the way to go and decorate with what I had on hand and my goal was to spend $0.00.
Lets start outside on the front porch........
I've been looking for an old sled and was thrilled my mom had keep this one from my childhood. She was happy to get it out of her basement and I am even happier to give it a new home. The ice-skates were from my teen-age years. Oh the memories these two items bring back.
Stars always remind me of one of my favorite Christmas songs 'Oh Beautiful Star of Bethlehem'.
Now come on inside.
I love my little birdhouse pencil tree. I just added some burlap ribbon to give it a different look from other years.
These vases and candles were left over from the wedding. I've been wanting to do an all white mantle but didn't have enough white to work with so this was the best I could come up with.
I do love the old window frame though.
Same tree as last year with the addition of hydrangeas I had left over from the wedding.
Playing around with bokeh. My first so don't judge too harshly please:)
Christmas Tree Bokeh
I love chalkboards. My niece made this one for me.
The only thing I bought was burlap and these little birds. The burlap doesn't really count as money spent because I'll use it all year.
The birds were intended for the tree but they never made it there. I might have spent 5 or 6 dollars on them so I came close to my goal. Oh, and the epsom salt for my jars so I probably spent 10.00. Still happy with that!
I dug out some old kitchen tools and used them in my decor.
Thank You for taking time to visit our home and I want to wish
everyone a Blessed Christmas!
