Christmas at our House

I did almost all my decorating the day after Thanksgiving, which I never do. And with a short stay in the hospital and not feeling so well, I'm so glad I decorated early. It's been nice to be able to sit back and enjoy it all. {even if it's a forced "sit back". LOL}

Welcome to our Home !



Our live family room tree. Our cute little artificial Gingerbread tree in the dining room.
Above the kitchen sink. My little Santa mugs scattered throughout the kitchen and dining room. I made these cute wooden candy canes, in my bazaar days. The cupboard in the guest powder bath, right off the kitchen.
And our cute little artificial white tree in our Master bedroom. {notice the blue walls! I finally got our bedroom painted! Just before Thanksgiving. I LOVE it and plan on sharing the Before and Afters someday.}

And the last little artificial tree in our Living Room. All decked out in a Western theme to match the decor in that room. Hope you enjoyed my little tour. Merry Christmas!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your home looks so warm and inviting! I have to tell you that we have similar tastes, I have the same bunny weather vane, the retro dancing santa in the 4th pic (I think the 4th pic) and the Jolly Snowman plate on the shelf below santa! Love it all!

Best wishes,
Tammy

I loved this post. As a matter of fact, I became a little bit obsessed with it. I had to have my own white tree and I made it happen. Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh Jodi who are you...your decorating style is just delightful...What have you done your whole life...you better tell me interior design or something along those lines...wow! your home is a home...ps. we have similar taste...although instead of yellow walls I chose butter cream yellow for all of our furniture...
blessings madame samm

Elly D said...

You have such a beautiful home! Thank you so much for sharing with us all I've thoroughly enjoyed the 'tour'.
We have the same taste in wall colours. I too have yellow in my living room, hall and kitchen and blue in my bedroom but it doesn't look as stylish as yours.
I also have bunnies... but real house bunnies.. which may account for some of the odd styling of some of the walls and furniture. LOL... LOVE ALL your trees. Maybe next year I'll be better organized.

Bayside Gal said...

Absolutely beautiful. I love old sleds and when I find them, I keep them out in the weather to get weathered even more. So all year long, I have a line of sleds standing on my back fence LOL. I just adore the white rabbit!!!
