I've been busy doing more decorating!


Boy have I been busy, this my crazy week! Here are some pictures of a house we did yesterday. Not only am I busy with other houses, I'm in the middle of a big mess decorating my own. I can't wait to get done and get things back in order! I'll show you mine soon.


This is another big beautiful home. We started doing this house several years ago, we decided to change some of the garlands up a bit for next year, but everything has held up well.





This is in the formal livingroom. She puts candleholders on each side.


This is in the kitchen, the closeup did not turn out. This garland has fruit , berries and cranberry balls. She has the cutest dog!


Hopefully I can post on Friday, we have 2 more houses this week. Thursday we do my good friend's house. It's huge and we decorate it to the max!

Oh my my! The stunning staircase. You did just the right amount. Oh so elegant. Okay, I'm about to break down and order a Christmas swag from you. I still haven't taken the Fall one down yet because...well...I can't.
I already put my Red tree up in the LR. I'm sure it looks a little funny to the neighbors. LOL!

Stunning! You are so talented! Oh and your blog layout is awesome! Did you do that yourself?? Makes mine look pitiful!

Dawnie said...

I cant get over those staircases. Your work speaks for itself..you truly have a talent.

I am on the lookout for greenery for my front door and windows. Around here its not being sold yet.

Sarah and Brad said...

Beautiful Kristen!! I am so excited that I have your blog to learn from...I LOVE decorating for Christmas!! Hope you have a wonderful end to the week!

Lynne said...

This is yet another beautiful home.. I'm wondering what do you use to attach your garlands to the exterior of these homes? So many around here have siding and husbands are funny about things hanging on it.. Thanks for sharing..hugs ~lynne~

Melissa Miller said...

Hey Kristen, I can believe it that you are tired! I only put up one tree and a little garland and I gave up and didn't even start on the outdoors. It's my favorite part too. No hurry on the swags. I'll look at them whenever you post them all later. Get some rest as soon as you can. ~Melissa :)

I love the traditiional reds!! You did a wonderful job. I love the staircase. I have my tree up and almost everything done. I'll be posting more within the next few days.
LOL I lost everything trying to set-up a new background. I thought I was good with the computer. Just a good reminder that there always something to learn.
Hugs, Terrie

Monkeybean said...

I absolutely love that front door! And yes the dog is very cute and fluffy too! Good luck on getting your house done.

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Kristen, Thanks so much for visiting my li'ole red tree and your kindness. You know it means so much to me coming from you. You are the Christmas decor' expert! Can you answer a question for me? How do I add white lights to my garlands without a plug anywhere nearby? I'm not too crazy about the look of the battery operated lights either. Okay, now I sound silly. Those are the only two options right? Please tell me no. LOL! I hope everything went well today and you can rest ASAP! ~Melissa

squawmama said...

Wow Kristen... this was absolutely stunning... your work is just so elegant I really enjoy looking at the decorations you do...How much fun to be working at something you love to do so much....

I'm just in awe of the creativity that abounds here! I'm in love with all of the gorgeous trees you've decorated, both for others and for yourself. I wanted to comment on each individual post, but as I scrolled down in got increasingly harder to scroll back up - so I hope you see this! You really have a fantastic talent, and thank you so very much for sharing that with the world through the blogosphere. I think we may have some cross readers, but do you mind if I share your link with my readers on my blog - I think they'd love this!
