Blogger Stylin Home Christmas Tour - My House

Hi! I'm back today with a tour of my home for Christmas. I love Christmas, and I love decorating for it. My mom always had several trees up during the Christmas season as a kid, and so I think that inspired me. The lights are just so cozy!

Anyway, I'm participating in the Blogger Stylin' Home Christmas Tour today, along with several other ladies. Here's the list:

Jen – The Chronicles of Home
Jennifer - Tatertots and Jello
Kristin - Hunted Interior
Eileen - A Creative Day
Lakeitha - Lakeitha Duncan
Kristen - KFD Designs
Jessica - Dear Emmeline
Sarah - Royal Marigold
Carmel - Our Fifth House


Head over and check out their homes after you see mine!


Anyway, onto the "tour". 

First up, the kitchen. Yes, I even have a tree in my kitchen. hah! I have had this vintage white tree for a few years now, and the past few years I've just rotated out trees (I actually own this one, a vintage red tinsel tree and a regular faux green tree. Christmas factory in my attic), but since we have room for lots of Christmas decor now, it came out! I bought several of the colorful plastic ornaments that Target has this year, to put on it. They're all sorts of colors, and the same size, which keeps it sort of organized, and the bright colors pop against the white. I especially love the neon ones and the hot pink. And, it's nice because they're plastic and Mika cant break them.


I added some $10 faux sheepskins from Ikea to the end chairs to "winter" it up a little. I'll probably keep them there all the time though, because I like the softness it adds to the space. 




I have this skinny tree that I bought several years ago at Hobby Lobby. It was turquoise, but I spray painted it gold this year!

I found these all-white ornaments at Lowe's and put them on there.



And my 3 vintage Santa's are on top of the refrigerator. My mom is awesome, and finds me all kinds of vintage Christmas decor! She's found tons over the years, and I'm so happy to have a house that's big enough to display everything now.



I also have lots and lots of little vintage balls, so I put some in this pottery piece that I have. The pottery is cool - I got it from a store called Miss Pixie's in DC that I always visit when I'm there seeing my brother. There are always treasures to be found!



next up, living room.


I put up our skinny faux tree again, which I still love. I bought some vintage looking skinny tinsel at Target, and I got that cool sparkly star at The Paris Market in Savannah recently. Isn't it pretty? It wouldnt stay on top of the tree, so I had to wire it on, haha. It kept falling down and glitter would go everywhere. It's pretty when it stays on, though! 


I also bought white pine garland and put it over the shelves that my dad and I made. I love it! I got vintage style bulb lights and strung those up, too. 






This photo shows some of my DIY ornaments from the past. Last year, I made those cube geo ornaments with little wooden blocks (they are selling something really similar this year at Target, hah). I also drew on those white clay ornaments to make the black and white ornament you see here. 

I'm using one of my vintage Mexican blankets as a tree skirt. 







I also hung these vintage stockings that I just got. I bought them at this cute store in Griffin (my hometown), Georgia for only $10 each. And they're handmade! The store is called Birds of a Feather. They always have the cutest vintage and handmade items.



Mika's is in the middle :)



Other than that, I just have some other Christmas items around the house...


Like in our powder bathroom, I have my vintage Santa collection:






And in our hallway, I have a little red hook thingie (I have no idea what it is, i got it at a junk store. I think it's actually one of those clip things that holds chips at a restaurant or something?) to hold our Christmas cards. 



And a couple of vintage bottle brush trees on our entry way console:
