A Fa La La La Holiday Home Tour

I know, I know, I can’t stop the fa la la’s.  I am done. Almost. Maybe.  Anyway, there are some upcoming parties of Holiday Home tours so I thought I would pull it all together…


The Family Room

This Santa balance toy is one of my favorites.  I still have all of the crafts my girls made in preschool, but there are too many to hang.  I decided to put them all together in an enamelware bucket.

What a gorgeous home you have! Such a sweet Lori Mitchell collection you have. Love the wooden box/tray on the kitchen table. I also used mason jars on the window seal... so pretty. And even the laundry room... you are good! :) Thanks for the great tour!

Funky Junk Interiors said...

Ya know, these home tours are just about too much goodness to take in all at once. I adore soooo many things about your place but it's too fast! KWIM? :) I'm still head over heels in love with your kitchen tree. But loving those masons in your upper window is a close 2nd... so fun! I adore your vintage touches so much!

It is all so gorgeous! First, who is this Lori Mitchell, and why have I never heard of her/him? So cute. Love the dining room chairs, love the skates, well, love it all! So preeettty!
Question: How do you collage your pictures, rather than just have them one after another?

Michelle @ Ten June said...

So pretty! Lots of gorgeous things. I've got some mason jars on my window sill too! :)

beth said...

Wow!! I love your home, and all of your decor! The red cranberries in the blue Mason jars had me thinking "why didn't I think of that?! I have a blue jar with sand and shells in it sitting in my window, and some cranberries in the fridge. I think I will take the shells and sand out and put some cranberries in. Thanks so much for the idea! I'm so glad I stopped by from the Nester's Christmas party!

Elizabeth (blue clear sky) said...

Wow, so many lovely vignettes. It is so difficult to choose my favourite part because everything looks so pretty. I'm going to have to go back to see it all again. Merry Christmas.

Your home is gorgeous. Love every little Christmas detail. So many pretties to take in! The better not pout pillow is precious! I'm your newest follower and would be delighted to have you follow me back!
Merry Christmas!

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

Your home is absolutely gorgeous! Even tho my taste is totally opposite yours, (mine is busy, bulky, bold), I am so in love with your style. I love everything you have done, but I think those simple mason jars just may be my favorite. I have been a follower for some time, stop by my place sometime and Merry Christmas!

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

I forgot to tell ya, out of all of the photos in the linky party at No Minimalist Here, I spotted the mason jars and clicked on them before even looking at another post over there. Like I said, they are my favorite. I guess I am just a plain old country girl.

Connie said...

How adorable everything is, sweetpea. I especially love your kitchen. Mine is small, but that's just fine since I'm an old lady and try to get hubby to eat out as much as possible! Squeeeeeal. He just insists on eating SOME meals at home though. What ya gonna do, huh?! Sigh...
xoxo,
Connie

V@WhimsyLamb said...

Beautiful!! You did a great job! I love your pretty home!

So fun to see the kitchen tree idea come to life!!! Now I only have to see Julie's house all decorated for Christmas since I've seen Jack's in person and yours in photos. Love it!!! Merry Christmas!!!

21st Century Housewife© said...

Your decorations look gorgeous! I especially love the 'better not pout' pillow!!
