Christmas House


I’ve added quite a few Christmas decorations around the house.  Some of them you’ve seen, like our modern Christmas tree, our stockings, our festive dining room, my JOY, deer, and MERRY pillows, and my DIY chalkboard chargers.  I’ve also shared some “Christmas corners” around the house, in the living room, on the wall, and on the desk.

In the spirit of linking up with the Nester’s Christmas Tour of Homes, I thought I’d share some more festive details from around the house.

I added some Martha Stewart Christmas ornament window clings to the slider.

Santa sent some presents via USPS this year, and the little ones have been added to the top of our glasses cabinet, along with some snowmen and angels.

These African dolls are helping to make the cable box more festive in their bright colors.  I picked these up in South Africa a few years ago.Christmas House - African Ladies

The elephant got into the Christmas spirit with some mini Christmas crackers.

We also have a pile of presents next to the TV cabinet.  I am sad to say that the wrapping creativity has significantly decreased on recent wrapping jobs.  At least all of the colors match!Christmas House - Present Pile

Since we don’t have a ton of space for ornaments on the tree, I added some might magnets to these angles and helped our fridge be a little more festive!Christmas House - Angel Magnets on the Fridge

Our cards are displayed on fun ribbon added to the horizontal mirrors in the entry way (that I still need to blog about)!Christmas House - Cards on the Mirror

I added a simple gingerbread men garland to our front door.  (Think ribbon & some foam cutouts from Target’s dollar spot).Christmas House - Gingerbread Men on the Door

Our gnome ornament (from the D.C. Spy Museum) covertly hangs out on the clock next to my desk.Christmas House - Spy Gnome I also added this gorgeous Merry Christmas banner (from Target this year) to the bulk head above our slider.Christmas House - Bulkhead Banner

You should have a look around all the other awesome homes linked on the Nester!  There is some amazing inspiration for next year (or you can still do some decorating – Christmas’s not until TUESDAY!)
