See..... I told you I've been busy!

Thank you all for your sweet comments on my christmas decorating. I really appreciate you taking time to leave your thoughts. I hope you are enjoying my pictures and not sick of christmas yet! He He. Sherry and I decorated my friend's house today. I'm going to show you some of it, but I will show you the rest in a later post. We also decorated my friend's parent's house yesterday, I have some pics of their home too. I know these homes are big, but you can incorporate these ideas on a smaller scale, that's what I do in my own home. Here I am decorating one of her trees......






This is her parent's house.

I had to run to Hobby Lobby and get candles and candle holders for the mantles.






These are some trees I decorated for another dear lady, she puts the ornaments on and I just add the ribbon, flowers and lots of ting ting, she loves ting ting!



I hope you all enjoyed the pictures. Now, time for some rest!

Kristen...It's gorgeous! I am speechless! You are so talented. I loved the mantles. I never can quite figure out what to do there. I have also been eyeing the way you decorate chandeliers. I have a new one that I want to make the focal point of my dining room. Thanks for the inspiration!...Debbie

oops...mantels

Kristen,
You never cease to amaze me! I'm exhausted decorating 1 big tree & you're decorating kazillions of them! Every picture is just beautiful. (The pictures don't open up when I click on them though.) I especially loved the dining table arrangement.

Ok, as usual, I'm waiting with bated breath for your next post!

Hi Kristen, I was just trying to fix one of my pictures & couldn't. I had cropped it, so don't know if that made it not open up. If I figure it out, I'll share it! ☺ Diane

Sherry said...

Hi Kristen, The pictures look great but the actual homes even look better. Soooo glad we are almost finished. I think you need to put the homeowners dog "Bo's" picture on your site for all the animal lovers, it's adorable!!!! Sherry

Melissa Miller said...

It's all so pretty. I really love the ting too. I'm going to try adding that to mine.
Thanks for the amazing inspiration.~Melissa

Kristen said...

You sure have been busy. What wonderful work you do.

Kristen, when I saw on my blog updates that you had posted more Christmas, I couldn't get over here fast enough. I can't get enough of your beautiful Christmas decorating, and as usual, I was not dissapointed when I got here. So much inspiration. Thank you. laurie

Kristen, another great style of decorating. These trees are decked to the max and lovely.
I bet by the time you get to yours you are just barely going! LOL
Keep the photos comming I love your work and enjoy the different twist that you give to the chirstmas decorating style. I convinced my hubby that I needed the day off today to get some decorating done. So we see how much I get done today. He has the business phone transfered to my phone. LOL now how much do you think I'll get done?
Happy Holidays
Blossom

Buffie said...

BEAUTIFUL!!!! You know what's great about you showing us all these beautifully decorated houses? We get to take some of your ideas and use them ourselves, thanks!

Buffie :)

Lynette said...

OK - I love that first house!! It is beautiful - I am so ready to get my stuff down. I love the mantels. I wish I could do something like that with ours, but we have a projector TV and the screen comes out of the ceiling and "rests" on the mantel - its a "man thing"!! Oh well!
Everything looks great!! Can't wait to see more.
Lynette

Bo said...

Oh Kristen, if only I had the money
I'd hire you you to come decorate for me...love your style! ;-) Bo

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Kristen now you got me feeling all sad that I do not have a mantle! (no need for a fireplace!lol!!)

But I just want to go crazy this year with the decor, because those houses you show us look out of this world!

Even though I have fincancial challenges this year, you are encouraging me to be creative! I love seeing the homes you do!

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

How many different ways are there to say "WOW"?? I know how much work that is. You are extremely talented. Love it all. What fun to work in that gorgeous home, I'm quite sure!
Question, did you purchase those little white stockings? Would love to know the source if you would share that. I feel like I'm ready to update ours. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

Hi Kristen, No! Don't you dare stop posting those gorgeous pictures. They are so inspiring and really getting me excited for the holidays. You do a FANTASTIC job! I feel like I am looking at the pages of the best magazines. So keep on doing what you are doing and be sure to post pictures! But I will let you take a little break over the weekend to keep your strength up.;) Be back soon! ~ Laurie

Laurie - Decorating Fanatic said...

Hi Kristen, It's me again, I came back to take another look (had to rush out for the kiddo's earlier) and I started browsing through your blog. Yours is new to me but I have to ask..were you on RMS? I was noticing your curtains in your living room area, and it dawned on me that I think I had seen them before....and if you were on RMS then I think your rooms were one of my FAVORITES! so please tell me - if I am losing my mind or not! Anyway, love your style and am so enjoying your blog. Have a good weekend! ~ Laurie

my lord! that is gor.ge.ous!!

Melissa Miller said...

Hello Kristen, I just bought the newest swag you posted. I love it! The plaid and gold together is stunning and goes with both of our trees. I'm going to keep this one inside. I'll hang it on my pantry door from a gold wreath hanger. You gave me the idea asking me about decorating my kitchen which I've never done before. This will be a great way to start. Awesome! Thanks for letting me know. Don't worry about rushing it. I know how busy you've been. ~Melissa :)
