There are a couple of holiday house tours going on out there in Bloggyland, so I thought I'd put out there what I've put out here. I won't be linking to any of the tours, though; after seeing my humble decorating attempts, there would probably be some snickering and someone would put a complimentary eggnog in my hand, call me 'dear', and politely show me the door... ;-) Have you seen some of these rooms?! There are some incredibly talented people out there!
With our December bend in the road, this Christmas isn't exactly how I pictured it happening. But a saying, that is quickly becoming my favorite, comes to mind:
It is what it is.
No, I'm not ready for HGTV (snort! never will be...) but...the house is toasty warm, the Christmas lights are twinkling, the Christmas music is playing, and something is smelling good in the kitchen. I have my DH here and the Sweet Girl will be home soon from school. It's home. It's simple. It's sweet. It is what it is, and it's a blessing.
Here's a few things we put out this year... roll your mouse over the photos for more details... click on the photos to enlarge.
I like having a gingerbread theme in the kitchen. How do you like my improvised table centerpiece?
