Christmas Eve Home Tour

Welcome to our home on Christmas Eve. I've been meaning to post some photos of our Christmas decor for some time, and today, I figured, it's now or never...

The living room is aglow with a crackling fire, which warms you as you enter the house.

The living room Christmas tree is filled with rustic ornaments, burlap ribbon and copper beaded garland..

The plaid-trimmed burlap tree skirt sports presents wrapped in coordinating colors.

Holiday-themed pillows from TJ Maxx. lend a festive touch to the sofa.

The antique nativity set my father gave me years ago is  proudly displayed on a shelf in the living room. It is one of my prized possessions and represents what Christmas is really about, the glorious birth of our savior!

The master bedroom is decked out in red and green.(I love the Cynthia Rawley reindeer sheets I found at TJ Maxx; they're so soft and comfy!)  Faux white pine wreaths attached with plaid burlap ribbon hang on each window.

The guest room bed sports lots of plaid.  A small lit tree with rustic ornaments greets visitors.

I like to recycle items from year to year.  This was the vase from a fresh floral arrangement I received a couple of years ago.  I just filled it with greenery and a large pinecone. 

I've had this rustic pine candle ring from One King's Lane for a few years.  I usually add a scented candle to it.  My favorite holiday scent is apple cinnamon, which I buy at Michael's in bulk with a coupon every year.

A copper buck's head, rustic garland and knitted stockings adorn the hearth.

With the window shades up, wreaths hung on the outside of the windows do double duty.  They are hung on a wrought iron wreath hanger; each holds an LED candle with a timer.

The dining room, which is open to the living area, continues the rustic Christmas theme.

Fresh greenery surrounds an LED candle in the centerpiece. It smells wonderful as you enter the room.


The linen table runner is embroidered with red poinsettias.

Faux greenery and pinecones adds a festive touch to the wrought iron chandelier.

The Amish hutch sports rustic greenery, pinecones and snowmen.

Spode dinnerware and rustic accents fill the wall in the dining room.

It's just starting to get dark, so let's enjoy sitting on the front porch for a spell.  I will make us some hot chocolate to take with us.  Merry Christmas!
