Our holiday decor it's very different from last year. Since I only had a few readers then, I thought I would give another home tour. We love our home at Christmas and hope you do too.
Welcome to our home. It was built between 1900 and 1910.
My father-in laws childhood sled.
I got these giant bells at Tai Pan Trading Co. a few years ago. I bought them after Christmas for under $5 a piece.
Our entryway. We have a lot of garlands. I've bought them all at yard sales and thrift stores.
Last year I shared this $3 sled and how I didn't know what to put in it. I love how it looks this year. I finally decided to paint those boxes. It's difficult to spray paint outside in cold weather, but worth the results.
The front room: I collect Santa's, so both the tree and mantel are covered.
The mantel: you can print your own BELIEVE sign HERE.
I've bought most of my Santa's at the thrift store.
I love dressing up our original sconces.
We opened this Santa yesterday, as part of the 12 days of Christmas. The kids can't get enough of him, he plays music while mickey and friends spin around.
The dinning room.
Our nativity: We got this from my husbands grandma. I love the simplicity, the bits of gold to make it special and that it was hand made.
One last thing, I wanted to show this wreath because I made it 6 years ago and didn't think it would last past that first year. I don't know if a gum drop wreath would last as long, but I've been seriously impressed that this candy wreath has done so well.
Off to spend another day in front of my sewing machine. I love sewing for Christmas.
