Don’t you love seeing into other people’s homes?
I LOVE it when people leave the lights on at night and I can see all their decor and furniture-not in a creepy way right?
Here is your glance into my home at the holidays-ENJOY!
My hallway(s) includes my homemade banner (tutorial via ABeautifulMess), a vintage red yard stick with my Christmas cards clothes pinned on, a $1.00 banner from Target on my bathroom door frame, adorable red mittens on my gallery wall, along with a beautiful red and white bell hanging from the secret passage way door (utility room door)-can you spot all that in this tiny space?
My tiny bathroom even got some decorations. I put up a wreath in the window (from Dollar Tree last year), and DIY‘ed a small snowflake banner (made with some gift tagged and string I picked up last year on clearance at Target).
This my living room TV/Media wall. It includes the beautiful mitten garland (I scored last year at…Marshall’s I think?) The giant ornament is felt from Dollar Tree last year and the ribbon Christmas tree art I DIY’ed last year (just 2 different green ribbons from Dollar Tree, cut to the shape of a tree-easy peasy, and both frames I had on hand).
I LOVE this holiday decoration. My wonderful friend Tiffany painted these for Jake and I a few years back (see how short my hair was) and they are my favorite things to get out every year! Doesn’t Lacey look so happy? (I miss her so much during this season).
Another living room wall. The shelves and banner are a mainstay but I switched out some art and added a few festive things.
The beautiful Christmas reindeer tray is from Hobby Lobby and was, of course, bought half off. I honestly do not know where the two snowflakes came from but I tied some ribbon through them and added them for some fun. I DIY’ed the NOEL blocks this year (bought blocks from Hobby Lobby, stained the blocks, added the outline of a letter sticker and painted inside with red craft paint-so quick and easy). The stars are cut off of my bathroom hallway Target banner-it was too long. Waste not, want not right?
My vintage thrifted lamp holds my awesome snow owl-scored last year at Meijer on clearance. The giant dove clothespin was a gift from my mother and it showcases the awesome clearance embossed holiday card from Target last year (I don’t actually use these holiday cards to send out-they are too beautiful to give away :) so I find ways to decorate with them in my home).
My lovely living room. Luckily red is in every room of my home (except the bathroom) so decorating for Christmas comes easy for me. This year I realized I don’t really like Christmas-Green as a color, so I decided NOT to include it in my decor. I know, revelation right?
I added the reindeer pillow (from Target this year) to the couch and I am so glad it matches perfectly! I also added the wreaths to the windows (from Dollar Tree last year). Can you see my Precious Moments snow globe in the bottom right of the picture?
Another vintage deer nestled in front of a thrifted Christmas tree with some rick-rac as decoration.
Yet another living room picture. My vintage thrift store chair holds another Target pillow scored this year (for $3.00) and above the chair is the Christmas poem my dad wrote and some small decorations-from Target too :)
Of course my DIY Pallet Christmas Tree.
On to the kitchen.
Again, red is a big color in my kitchen so decorating for Christmas is easy. I just added a few items.
I added the $1.00 Target banner above the refrigerator along with the Christmas cookie cutters. Believe it or not everything else is always there.
This is my vintage, great-grand mother’s, china cabinet that I am lucky enough to own now. I added the red reindeer tin inside the cabinet and the DIY’ed yarn trees, cookie jar (gift from my mom), and red tins (from Ikea) to the top for display.
My Christmas trays are also on display in the kitchen. The snowflake tin was a gift from my sister (from JoAnne’s) and the Christmas tree tray (from Meijer) is either from my mom or I bought it-cannot remember :) The XL white tray behind has beautiful details and reindeer on it-but I keep it out all year-shhhh, don’t tell anyone (it is from Target years ago).
My mom also gave me these awesome winter owl napkins (too cute to use) and I scored the adorable vintage cookie in thrifting last year. I originally thought of gifting it, but come on-too cute to give away. I added the cute Christmas fabric as a table runner-I sometimes just buy fabric I am drawn to and figure out what to do with it later-this is that kinda of fabric, works well as a table runner right?
What do you think? Do you go all out for holidays and seasons?
