    Your whole home is amazing! I love all the reminders of our Savior that you've woven in to help keep the reason for the celebration in focus. All your details are perfect but my most favorite is the decorations over your stove…Pinned!

    Amen! I love your "home for the holidays" sign! And seriously, where did you find the wrapping paper? Hubby loves that tartan color scheme and I have not found that type of wrapping paper here in Germany. Your home is lovely and I believe my kids would love a cocoa station πŸ˜‰

    Absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! In particular, all of your chalkboard writings and especially the strip of writing on your mantle. Is that black craft paper? Also adored the deer cutouts on your plates hanging on the wall. How did you do those? The Christmas balls in the gumball machine and the cocoa station are so cute! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I also noticed the sign over the cocoa station. Could you tell me how you made that?
    Thanks for all the inspiration!! (visiting from Dixie Delights).

    What variety of Christmas tree do you get? They are so beautiful and I've never seen them at our Christmas tree farms in Oregon. (Because I couldn't track one down like yours, we ended up going on an adventure to the forest to cut down our first "wild" Christmas tree (: Merry Christmas!)

      Ours are Frasier Firs from North Carolina! We just buy ours at a store, but going on an adventure sounds fun! πŸ™‚

      Thank you, Mandy! The greenery & the wood slices came straight from nature πŸ™‚ but the glitter ball garland was from a local home store! So glad you stopped by πŸ™‚

    Shut. UP! Your home is beautiful to begin with, but you outdid yourself – it's absolutely stunning!! I love all of it! Your plaid elements, your wreaths throughout, your words draped throughout, and your tree! Your tree is so gorgeous! Thanks for sharing and for linking up to the 12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes.

    I hope this doesn't post twice. I think I lost my original post when I signed in to Google…sorry if it does!

    These ideas are gorgeous, and I will definitely be putting some to use this Christmas. My husband and I will be moving into our brand new home in about 4 weeks, so it's time to start getting some Christmas decorating projects ready!

    About how long does the artificial garland and greenery last in doors. I typically like to start decorating right after Thanksgiving.

    Thank you for sharing your love of Christ to so many through your blog! What an awesome thing to see!

      Hi, Mandy! Congrats on the new house! The artificial greenery should last from the end of November to Christmas, but it does kinda depend on how fresh it is when you get it, and the temperature in your house. Keep trees watered well and you can mist the garlands if you feel like they're drying out too fast. Have fun decorating this year!
