Nothing beats the wonderful feeling of home at Christmastime. The smells, the sounds, and the overall cheery feeling you get when laying eyes upon a newly decorated home. You can imagine the fun we have in our house with our 6 kids. It is a treasured time that I try to savor at every moment.
Today and tomorrow is our Home for the Holidays Tour – a low-stress look at how my blogger friends and I chose to share our homes decked for the holidays. Come along as I share our family room mantel.
I don’t think anyone can deny that a mantel demands center stage in a room. They’re grand and so full of decorating potential. Last year, I offered a free printable of our bunting, and this year I was challenged to create something using vinyl plank flooring in the likeness of barn wood. That’s when I came up with this…
It’s the Christmas season and what better way to enjoy this special time than being inspired by others and getting the itch to create? I am pleased to share with you my leg of the Christmas Ideas Tour that has been going on all week. Let me introduce you to my repurposed log reindeer. But first…
If you missed the beginning of the tour, you can catch up by heading over to these wonderful blogs with oodles of Christmas spirit.

It’s almost officially summer and I’m ready to kick off the season in style with a fantastic group of ladies (a total of 24 blogs!) in the week-long Welcome Home Summer Tour with Balsam Hill. Wahoo!

You may be saying to yourself, “Balsam Hill? I thought they were all about Christmas trees?” Though their primary focus is the Christmas season, Balsam Hill also has plenty of goodies for you to choose from for all seasons.
If you missed my sneak-peak video last week, I mentioned that my home is where I want my family to feel welcome, and is inviting to anyone who comes to my door. While I normally have planters full of herbs and such, this year, I wanted to create an environment that would last all year long.
Can you see me peeking at you? 🙂
