Christmas Home Tour!!



This is me (Jen) my husand and my daughter



Our daughter - Kennedy Winter



Our angel dog Macaroni. He'll be 3 next month and he weighs a little less than 4lbs



Now the house tour! This year it was all about simple beauty. Since we have a one year old, I wanted our home to feel festive, but I wanted things to be out of the way so I didnt have to say NO NO NO all day long. I did a few projects, but everything was super easy, cheap and fun.

I'm a new blogger, so any comments/feedback and follows are great appreciated. Cant wait to see all of your homes too.












1. Branch from the yard spray painted silver
2. Add fishing line to dollar store balls and dollar store snowflakes



Theres something magical about the reflection in the glass with the glitter


I used some frames I already had, added vintage paper, and some of the dollar store snowflakes.
So easy.



I dont love a crazy cluttered kitchen, but I love the pop of color and the symmetry that the pointsettas bring.


Our dining room is a hardworking room, we added some garland above the bookcases, so it feels festive, but doesnt get in the way of living


Outside we added garland all along the porch, and some wreaths



I added some glass balls, pinecones, and cinnamon sticks to containers on the deck





I hope you all enjoyed. I'm just starting out, so please follow and comment, so I can check out your blogs too!!

    {my fav is the branch above the mirror}
    I love all the "real" greenery, and I'm imagining it smells wonderfully Christmassy too.

I want to share my home but I'd love some friends to share it with : ) thank you for all the compliments on my daughter and dog and decor, I feel blessed. Someone asked about our countertops, they are actually marble tiles from home depot, grouted with black grout and the Schluter system is the silver on all the edges. Thanks everyone for your interest!
