2014 Christmas Home Tour

Welcome! I finally got around to photographing my home so I could get a Christmas home tour up. I've been so busy since school started that I haven't been able to blog as much as I would like. Anyway, I finally had a spare moment to take pics, and I did want to document what I did this year, so let's start the tour!



Do you see that cute pillow??? Yep, that's the one I've been waiting on! I ordered it way back on November 30th, and after waiting over a week, I contacted them and apparently it was "lost in the mail." So, they sent another one and it DID arrive this morning (as I mentioned in my last post)...but it was the WRONG one!!! Then, my mailman delivered a second round of mail to my house just a few minutes ago and it must be a Christmas miracle, because this time it was the right one! Not sure what was going on with it, but I'm just glad to finally receive it. :) 

And just because I love it so much, here are a couple more pics...



I adore it! Cutest pillow ever!!! And well worth the wait. ;) 




Okay, here are a ton of pics and I hope you enjoy it. :) First up is the foyer.




This is the dining room tree. I had to remove the tree skirt because a certain feline would NOT leave it alone. Lol! She was captivated by it and would drag it all over the house. :) If you look closely in the pic below, you can see her.


Little wreaths (they're actually candle rings) on the backs of the chairs. 




A wider view of the dining room.

Now we're in the living room. Love that snowman and his skinny legs. :)
















Still loving my cable knit pillows. 






Now on to the kitchen...








I love my gingerbread/peppermint tree in here.


I think I mentioned this last year too, but I felt so lucky to find ribbon that had gingerbread men AND peppermints on it!

Even the pantry door got a little Christmas cheer.

Did you notice the Norman Rockwell ornament on the lamp above? Do any of you remember those? I got it at JC Penney in 1996 on black Friday. They were giving them away and it's always been one of my favorite ornaments. 

Here's a closer look at the front...


And the back...



Now for the master bedroom.





I did a blue, white, and silver tree to match the decor in there. 



The rest are just some random pics from around the house...













Love the red car cookie jar below!



These birds look like they're planning their annual holiday party. :)









Below is the top of the armoire in the living room.







And of course the hot cocoa station... 






So, you may have noticed a certain theme I had going on this year...


And that's it! Hope you enjoyed the tour! Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season!

  2. Lisa, I LOVE that pillow!!! Is that from Lucy? She does fantastic work! Wish I had ordered one of them earlier.
    Glad you decided to record Christmas this year because everything looks just lovely. You have done a great job with everything. Love that the cat drags the tree skirt around. How funny is that! Scolding just doesn't seem to work with cats, does it?

    Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

  5. Everything looks so festive...you have a lot of cute touches everywhere. I LOVE all the trees! And the pillow is darling. I know Pottery Barn has one like that as well as Craftberry Bush way up in Canada. I have a little ornament something like that. I'm so glad it came today! Good for you! :)
