Friday's Favs...My Christmas-y Home 2012...

Welcome to my Christmas-y home, 2012!
Lots of pictures and not too many words...enjoy!
In the photo above, you are in the entry hall, and in the one below, our living room.
To see the decor in my stair landing go here.
The nativity sits atop my antique wooden cubby.

You can see more about my Christmas mantel here
and about our Christmas tree here.

And now, onto the dining room...
Here are a few Christmas-y touches found on my Restoration Hardware knock-off shelves.
My daughter made these cute little Christmas-y lavender sachets for me.

For a post about my Christmas centerpiece go here.

For close ups of the vignette on the dish cabinet go here.
In the kitchen window sill are paperwhite bulbs which are starting to bloom 
and a homemade wreath hangs from the curtain rod.

On the kitchen counter is an old wooden trug filled with all of the fixin's for hot chocolate.
This has been a big hit with the grandkids!
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
Come back again!

It's almost Friday!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED weekend!

  1. so pretty! love the truck and love the garland with the cookies!

  2. Beautiful. Love the truck and the dish towel curtains.

  3. Oh my goodness this is beautiful. I love your paperwhites and garland. Oh I would love to spend an afternoon curled up on your couch with tea and conversation. Where the heck is your tv? I love that I never see it. :)

  4. Love your tour Elizabeth. So many homey touches.

  5. So lovely and peaceful! Thank you for sharing with us!

  6. I think my favorite bit is the snowmen in the glass dish on top of the dish cabinet. Love that they were a gift from your mom, but they were my favorite even before I knew.

  7. Love the decorations ~ so festive and bright. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the little toy truck with the tree ~ that brought a big wide grin to my face ;-)

  8. Your home is so festive and nicely decorated. Every nook and cranny has your special touch!

  9. I have enjoyed a peek into your house today Elizabeth! It is beautifully decorated for the season. I think I'd enjoy making a hot chocolate at your house too with those fixin's and pretty mugs!

  10. Loved the tour, Elizabeth. So wonderfully cozy and so full of charm!!

  11. Everything looks charming and lovely, Elizabeth. And uncluttered (I am anti-clutter) which makes it serene.
    As well, your home looks extraordinarily clean. Wonderful!

  12. Very pretty, Elizabeth. You have some lovely collections and I especially like the candy jars. The tags are cute.

  13. Those cubbies in your family room are fabulous - 24 openings, it would make a perfect Advent calendar! Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

  14. Everything is so cozy and beautiful!

  15. Simple and warm and cozy! Fav detail is the apple dishes in the cupboard & the old truck.

  16. I am loving your paperwhites and that vintage truck hauling the Christmas tree. :)

  17. thank you for sharing your lovely holiday hom with us!

  18. What a beautiful homey happy place to be. I, too, am loving the truck with the tree, the antique jars (I have some of those too and adore them) and the words of love and life sprinkled throughout.
