Next up on the holiday party circuit is Heather and her Pretty Little Christmas soiree. Love this theme!
Welcome to our dining room. Please sit down and make yourself at home. This table was my grandparents. I am so happy that I am able to now have it in our home and enjoy entertaining family and friends.
I found some great vintage ornaments at the local antique mall. I especially love the bell ornaments.
I found this garland at Target several years ago. It is the perfect size for our short banister.
I really have a love/hate relationship with the color of our living room. I would like to paint it again (this would be for the third time - Jeff is not too thrilled by this prospect) but I'm waiting until we buy new living room furniture. That may be a while with a new baby on the way!
The fireplace display was inspired by this though our village pieces are a lot larger so we don't have quite the same effect. We have so many more village pieces up in the attic. I'm hoping to bring a few more down for other areas in the house. Must - get - motivated. If I don't do it right after Thanksgiving its hard for me to do. Mostly because there is so much involved with the Christmas decor (as you all know!). It takes such a long time and there are so many boxes. I hate to pull things out closer to Christmas because then they are out for only a short while before having to get packed back up again.
All of the boxes and storage containers are sitting up in our guest room with all of the other year round decor items that came down to make room for the holidays. Usually we put it up in the attic but since we aren't having overnight guests, I think it will all just stay in the guest room so life is a bit easier when it comes to packing it back up. Maybe I'll be brave enough to post a photo of that mess in the future!
Oh, what do we have here? A chocolate factory? My favorite! We must make a stop.
Well look at that! They must have known we were coming - free samples!
From our home to yours...
