We’ve all talked about it, and we’ve definitely all felt it! As soon as I take down Christmas, I’m relishing the clean, pared down aesthetic. For awhile. And then, not so much. My house starts to feel pretty bare, and on top of that, it’s cold, it’s dreary, and it makes me long for spring.
Hi everyone! I’m joining some blogging friends today for a small blog hop sharing Christmas inspiration. I actually intended to share my Christmas entryway as part of my Front Porch Tour last week, but I hadn’t finished the garland and just couldn’t swing it that early. Then I had several cloudy days which made taking pictures impossible, so it just worked out to share it now.
Well, it’s only a little over two weeks until Christmas (how did that happen?!) and I know this is when the stress levels can really go up. Between ordering cards, hosting events with family and friends, having to bake or bring food to parties, and decorating our own houses, sometimes gift-giving can feel like a chore. However, I’m here to say it doesn’t have to be! I know there are people who don’t relish the job of hunting for gifts, but I actually love it. And filling the stockings is one of my favorite things to do! My husband and I still fill each other’s stockings and I bet we will even when the kids are gone!
If you’re a regular reader then you know that I recently made the exciting announcement that I joined the bHome App (You can read all about the app here). And now, those talented ladies invited me to do a Holiday Tour with them, and well, of course I couldn’t say no! This is my third holiday tour this season (one more – stay tuned!) and though it sounds like a lot (especially for a not-so-big house!) I figure it’s better to break it up for all of you anyway. No one wants 50 photos in one post, and this way, I can talk details and really show you each area.
Hi everyone! I’m sure many of you are busy decorating for the holidays or trying to get your shopping done. It’s such a busy season, but there is also something special and magical about the hustle and bustle of the holidays! For some of you, along with shopping, wrapping and decorating, you’ll also be hosting some kind of gathering as well. Whether it be Christmas Eve dinner, a fun dinner party for friends, or even New Year’s Eve, you may be looking for tablescape ideas. If so, this week of inspiration is the one for you! I’m joining the Styled + Set Holiday Entertaining Blog Tour, hosted by Lory of Designthusiasm.
