Christmas Home Tour

christmas home tour
Happy Thanksgiving!!! Smile
I hope that you all have a great day today!
I just wanted to post my Christmas Home Tour.  These pics are from last year but I never actually showed it as a tour so I thought I would this year.
I showed you How I Decorate my Mirrors for Christmas
2010 12 09_1277
I decided to do something a little different.
I wanted to decorate some of my mirrors.
I found some beaded and mirrored garland and snowflakes and decided to hang them over my mirrors.
2010 12 08_1387
I really like how it turned out.
2010 12 08_1388
I think that it was a great final touch for my white and sparkly theme.
2010 12 08_1391
I also liked to see the reflections on the mirror.
2010 12 08_1393
The mirror on mirror looked great!
2010 12 08_1394
You can do this with just about anything…garland, beads, popcorn, Christmas cards, handmade snowflakes, ribbon, etc.  Just look for what you already have.  Remember, you don’t NEED to buy anything.
2010 12 08_1397
For my other mirror, I just hung a really huge ornament.
2010 12 09_1269
It’s white and sparkly…perfect!
2010 12 09_1271
  I think it fills the mirror nicely.
2010 12 09_1281
I have two mirrors over my couch and I had two matching smaller snowflakes to use.
2010 12 09_1273
I am really liking snowflakes this year.
2010 12 09_1274
Plus, it matches my tree!
2010 12 09_1275
I think it adds just a little something to the room!
2010 12 09_1276
Again, you can use anything you have or  your kids can make homemade snowflakes and glue sparkles on.  (We usually do that for the windows and they LOVE it.)
2010 12 09_1277
I LOVED my tree last year! Smile
2010 11 30_1265
We decorated our tree with white, silver and sparkly ornaments!
2010 11 30_1224
I am really happy how it turned out! :)
2010 11 30_1254
We did get a real tree  year but I saved a lot of money on our ornaments.
2010 11 30_1231
I bought MOST of them from garage sales like this Pottery Barn star.
2010 11 30_1232
I also bought a lot of them on clearance from Wal-Mart last year for 50 cents each like this one.
2010 11 30_1233
Others I bought as souvenirs from a family vacation a couple of years ago.
2010 11 30_1234
I am really loving the sparkly ones!!!
2010 11 30_1235
I tried to squeeze ornaments inside the tree so there are ornaments EVERYWHERE!
2010 11 30_1237
I seriously tried to put an ornament on almost every branch.
2010 11 30_1238
The more, the better!  (for me anyway)
2010 11 30_1239
I took some pictures of some of my favorites.
2010 11 30_1240
I know… I take a lot, heehee!
2010 11 30_1241
I love the words!
2010 11 30_1242
Gracie really likes this one.
2010 11 30_1243
The kids seriously had a BLAST helping me decorate it!!!
2010 11 30_1244
They each have there own special ones too!
2010 11 30_1245 2010 11 30_12602010 11 30_1259
Here are some pictures at night.

I also made A Simple Christmas Vignette.
2010 12 20_1567
2010 12 20_1574
I wrapped this cute Merry Christmas sign around a candle holder.
2010 12 20_1568
I decorated with picture frames and already had and pinecones.
2010 12 20_1569
I just filled the frames with wintery pictures of the kids!  I love doing that!!! :)
2010 12 20_1570
I LOVE the nature look.  I just took a candle holder that I had and filled it with acorns that the kids picked and added a couple branches from our tree.
2010 12 20_1571
This tree is from a garage sale.
2010 12 20_1572
The greenery is not real but it looks real, doesn’t it?  I also bought that from a garage sale.
2010 12 20_1578
That’s it….simple, festive and free…except for the pictures but those were cheap and they don’t count because I need them.
2010 12 20_1575
2010 12 20_1567
I LOVED my Wintery Christmas Tablescape!
2010 12 08_1354
I am excited to show you my Christmas tablescape!
2010 12 08_1348
I am really happy with how it turned out.
2010 12 08_1351
I only used what I had.
2010 12 08_1353
I placed cute ornaments in the bowls.
2010 12 08_1355
These would make great little gifts for your guests to take home.
2010 12 08_1356
I LOVE the silver accents.
2010 12 08_1358
2010 12 08_1360
2010 12 08_1362
I wanted a simple one.
2010 12 08_1363
It might look like a lot but it is just a grouping of bigger items.
2010 12 08_1364
I LOVE big!  I love this big star!
2010 12 08_1365
Of course, I love the sparkle!
2010 12 08_1367
I seriously love this tree!
2010 12 08_1368
I did place little ornaments around to add bling!
2010 12 08_1369
Ornaments in a glass….easy!2010 12 08_1370
Here is another view.
2010 12 08_1377

2010 12 08_1378
I am really happy with this room! :)

I have told you all about my obsession with white, silver and glitter this year but I also love good, old fashioned nature!
I love using natural materials mixed with silver, glass, etc.
Here I used different kinds of sticks in a silver vase (that I spray painted silver a while ago) and I threw in a turkey feather that my husband found in the woods.  Next to that, I just placed some pinecones in a glass vase.  That’s all FREE and great all winter long.  I was able to use silver, glass and nature altogether and I love it.  I really like mixing!  You can group together all of your favorites things…you cannot go wrong with items you LOVE!
2010 12 08_1339
Here I used pinecones in a glass vase again.  I just love doing that!
2010 12 08_1362
I also LOVE acorns in glass.  (These are the same acorns from my fall tablescape.)
2010 12 08_1371
I also used cinnamon sticks (from my fall tablescape) and placed them in another glass vase.
2010 12 08_1372
Here is a cinnamon broom that my husband surprised my with from Trader Joes.  This thing smells AWESOME!
2010 12 08_1383
Here I added some acorns and a couple branches from our tree to a candle holder.
2010 12 09_1285
I like the nature look!
2010 12 09_1287
More pinecones!
2010 12 09_1288
Can you guess what is next…pinecones in a glass vase, lol!
2010 12 09_1291
I added that to the bathroom.  It is simple and nice looking!  And…EASY and FREE!!!!
2010 12 09_1292
LOL, here are some more!  This is seriously the easiest thing EVER!
2010 12 09_1295
Last thing,  I added a real wreath to our front door.  I did not buy this, again, my husband surprised my with it from Trader Joes.
2010 12 10_1425
You can’t forget about the most important thing…
