Christmas Home Tour 2014

I can’t believe we’re in the last month of 2014.  I have been super busy all year getting our house under control, meaning I have been letting go of a lot of material things that needed to go.  I’ve been trying to make an effort to really think about the things I bring into the home.

Halloween Table for Grown Ups

Christmas Home Tour (2013)

Welcome to my 2013 Christmas Home Tour!  Now that the decorations are organized, donated and put out I've been enjoying them especially after I put the baby to bed.  I light the candles and sit in front of the fireplace and Christmas tree.  I think white Christmas lights should stay up all year round! Today I'm showing you my foyer and living room. (The links to the rest of the house are at the bottom.)  I'll be back later this…
