Christmas tour of homes 2011

Why hello there! It's that time again, time for the Christmas tour of homes 2011 with The Nester! I'm so excited this year, I know I say it every year but this one is really my favorite.

Until next year I'm sure.. ;)

But for now, I'm so in love with it! I decided yesterday that it was my absolute LAST day I was going to spend decorating anything, I could tweak and perfect forever so it was time to put a stop to it and sit back and actually ENJOY the last 12 days until Christmas.

Things like sitting around the Christmas tree with hot chocolate and watching Elf for the 200th time? Bliss.

So I worked my tail off, finished some projects, cleaned like a maniac (Because lawd knows my house is never this clean, trust.) and anything that I didn't get to do? Well, that's just okay. It's time to be present in my families life. Even if it means being present cuddling in front of the t.v ;) Just kidding.

Less talking more pictures right?

Thar she blows!





















Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night :)

SWOONING!
I love that you don't have some 2000sq+ house or any extravagant amounts of $$ poured into all this, but it's just all executed SO well, that it looks like it's worth a million bucks!
KUDOS RACHELLE! KUDOS!

Your home is lovely and with such pretty Christmas decor. Love the neutral background that makes the colours really pop. Homey and stylish too! Nothing wrong with cuddling in front of the TV either :)

Ok, so I haven't been keeping up for a long time, and I almost didn't recognize your living room! I think it was the red that threw me off, and maybe the angles of the pictures? Anyway, I LOVE it!!! Your Fantel looks GREAT!

How do you like having a sectional? We are considering getting one.

Beautiful! I absolutely love your homes color scheme. It is so soothing. I'm a total sucker for beadboard in the kitchen too! I think Nester is going to need to do a blue Mason Jar link up party. I love playing Where's Waldo, but with the mason jars instead.

So glad I wandered over from Nester's! Merry Christmas!
