Christmas Tour

Only 5 more days until Christmas!! Can you believe it? I sure can't...



I didn't mean to take so long to post...Goodness! Time is getting away from me lately and now I have to play catch up. I have also been working on getting out all of my custom orders. I have showed you alot of my Christmas decor, but now I thought I would show you everything put together. Trust me, I don't think I need to buy anymore Christmas stuff! (except for those Christopher Radko dishes)



You definitely know it's Christmas time when you step inside the front door!




Someone asked if I just put up the curtains for Christmas...I agree they do blend well with the Christmas decor! lol...




I was overwhelmed with the nice compliments on my mantle! Thanks again!!! It is definitely the focal point in the room...you can't miss it! =0



This pic is for L...I didn't realize you couldn't see the light up presents by the mantle.





These lanterns got alot of attention on Pintrest. Love that site! There are so many great ideas and way too many wonderful recipes.




I just bought the deer by the chair on sale for $12 the other day...couldn't pass that price up!



More deer in the niche...



Below are some of my favorite Christmas decorations....



I used the Christmas present piece on the mantle last year and decided to use it above the T.V. this year.




This Santa in the hot air balloon is so much fun!


Ha! This piece is so whimsical!



I know I just showed you the dining room last week, but thought I would take more pics for the tour.



I don't see one present under that tree! I better get busy!!









I was literally pressed against the dining room window to take this shot! lol...





On to the gingerbread and peppermint kitchen...
As you can see I decorated the tops of the lights. There is a closeup pic at the bottom of this post.



You probably remember the peppermint candle holders, gingerbread tablescape and tree from a few weeks ago.










At the last minute I decided to add a little Christmas on top of my cabinets.




I even decorated the rooster! lol



Gingerbread terrarium and trees...



My gingerbread man tassel...



I sold all of my Christmas tassels this year.



Here is a better pic of the bow and curly glitter sticks I added to the lights.


Well, I think I've shown you everything in my house! I still have my front door to show you soon.



I will show you my mom's house for my"Share Your Creations" party on Wednesday night. Great party last week! Don't forget to link up...


I have had alot of people tell me how much they enjoy looking at all of the wonderful creations!! It's a great way to find new blogs...



Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Kristen,
Your home is A M A Z I N G!! It is *seriously* one of my favorites in blogland. You are so talented. Everything you create has a beautiful Kristen spin on it. You add balance, warmth, elegance, whimsy, and fun to everything you do, simply AMAZING!! Your photos are *so* magazine worthy. I've really enjoyed seeing all the fun things you create, in addition to your gardening, and home decorating. I look forward to next year, as you always bring something unique to the table.

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hi Kristen,
Thanks for the sweet comments you left on my blog.
Your home is a gorgeous showplace!! I love all the bright "Christmas" colors you use.
Your tree, tables, & mantle are beautiful. I love the way you did the tops of your lights. Very unique and pretty.
People ask me about my furniture and if I bought it for Christmas. lol It just workded out that way and it is so nice to decorate my house for the season because of all the reds and greens.
Your curtains do blend well but I love them year round. They're so pretty!
Merry Christmas!
