Holiday Home Tour

Here it is, after looking at these pictures I sigh. This time of year is exhausting. Not only do I decorate alot but the parties, gift giving, cooking, baking and I don't even have children yet!  But I love it, I wouldn't change it, I may change my mind when I have to put it all away again.

As a first year blogger I have to say we as Americans have some talent!  It's not easy taking things and making them beautiful or making a house into a home. And I have seen many many homes and I'm happy that others feel the same way as I do walking into their front doors...

Let the tour begin...

Front Porch:


The entryway:



Living Room: The teal and silver room with the big tree...


The Tree
 Mantle:


The dining room:



and what do orchids have to do with Christmas... nothing but that's me! I love them!


The breakfast Room/table:
Every year we have a huge breakfast Christmas morning so I threw this together last night for this post. Those are branches from my yard and the runner, plates, sleigh, and ornaments from the Christmas Tree Shop.





Family Room:

Tree #2, the Family Tree:



My style is typically elegant, however I do have some wimsy floating around...




That was ALOT of photos.. Hope you enjoyed reading... Come join me if ya did.

But it's so rewarding once it is all out ~ even if I do grumble when I'm putting it away! Your home is beautiful all decked out like that!
