I’ve had a great time, once again this year, decorating the house for Christmas. I wish there could be a way to have you all over for some coffee & cookies, but I guess the next best thing is a virtual tour. So, come on in!We’ve got the nativity set front & center in the entryway this year, which I hope reflects the way we celebrate Christmas…by keeping Christ in the forefront of it all.It seems like I always have to incorporate candy & sweets into my decorating somewhere, & this year, they’re in the dining room.Don’t you love those big red & white twisty pops? (Found them at the Dollar Tree!)My girls did a great job on the gingerbread house this year, and we decided our big lantern was a great place to display it.I think the piano room is my favorite room for this Christmas season because of my tree & the story behind it. (Click here to read that if you missed it.)I added just a few more sparkly things to my mantle to go with my mercury glass collection. My favorite part is the bud vase garland my sister made me. (Find it for sale in her shop.) I filled each little bottle with one of the names of Christ.In the family room, I have our traditional stockings we’ve used every year.In the kitchen, I went with simple & classic. Click here to see more of it.Our “Jesus is the Reason” wreath hangs next to the breakfast room where I have my Joy to the World cafe shelves.One last tree in the library has only white lights & my map garland I made last year.And for the less-than-perfect part of my bliss, here’s a sneak peak at the chaos that is my closet about this time every year. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has a mess like this somewhere.Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait to see the other tours all around blogland. I’ll be linking up with a few of these friends!
