Happy Holidays, and welcome to my Homemade Christmas Tour! Things are starting to look all holly and jolly around here, so I thought I would share a few of the Christmas touches we have added in our home so far this year. There are a couple of spaces that are under renovation (what's new, right?), so no entryway and just a smidgen of the kitchen ;)
Kate and I decorated the Christmas tree with lots of aqua and silver this year. I'm sure you can spy a little pop of red in there....it seems our Elf, Jenny wanted to get in on a little bit of the home tour action. Kate is thoroughly embarrassed because Jenny is clearly kissing a penguin...oy! Since we have a dog and cat, we opt for a galvanized bucket for our tree instead of a tree skirt...trust me, it saves a ton of cleaning for me! I found the lovely wrapping paper this year at Marshall's for less than $3 a roll, and I think they work perfectly with our theme this year!
This was actually the first space I worked on this year. As you may be able to tell, it has changed a few times. It seems that every time I wanted to add something, I ended up moving everything around.
I tried to make everything by hand for this room, and had a blast doing it. One of the first things I made was this Santa's Sled...you can see the before and all kinds of fabulous Holiday goodness, HERE!
This year, we even made something for the birds...
Thank you so much for joining me for a tour of my home this Christmas, and not judging my chalkboard obsession.
