Christmas House Tour

Hello everyone!
I hope you're all enjoying this last week till Christmas. Hopefully you  have your shopping, baking and decorating done and can now kick back and enjoy the festivities! Lol.
Sorry I'm so late with this post but had some issues to contend with so....

Welcome to my house tour!.

My tree has been up for a month now and Is done in whites and neutrals.

I've hung faux garland this year as I couldn't find any real greenery that was thick enough and didn't cost an arm and a leg!

This is my mantel in the evening with the lights on.
I made the stockings  and embellished each one according to personalities along with  our initials.
You can read more about the mantel here.

These Christmas buckets flank either side of the fireplace. To see more pics you can go here.

I love pinecones!
I've used them everywhere this year, I even hung them from the curtain rods ( seen this in a couple of magazines and loved it), I also filled my baskets with them.

Had to have some touches of real cedar here and there, the scent is part of Christmas.

Here is the tree without the lights on. Love the green and white together. 

I love glass and have used this collection of glass candle holders from PB
 to dress up the breakfast nook table.

These are the little jugs/creamers I added to my garland. They go so well with my ironstone.
You can read about them here.

For the dining room mantel I used some peach pointsettias and birch lit up with little LCD lights I got from IKEA, they were only a buck a set! There are 3 sets wrapped around the birch and it looks so pretty in the evenings.

I really like the look of a lit tree shining through a front window so I bought this little guy and added some lights, a few little balls and wrapped the base in burlap.
My dining room table was a great find a couple years ago. It will be my spring project to strip off all her shine and orangey stain.

How gorgeous is birch with twinkle lights!!

Here is a little peek at the main floor powder room. I just added a little bit of red to add some Christmas colour.

I sewed up some of my 5 minute cushion covers (It can become addictive it's so easy!) out of this lovely taupe coloured toile. It goes well with the linen and burlap cushions  that are in the room.

I hope you enjoyed my little Christmas tour.
I still have a little bit of Christmas in the bedrooms to show you, hopefully I'll get that done before Christmas arrives! Lol
Blessing to you!
