Christmas Home Tour 2013

Let me start by saying Good morning, all! I am just smitten to have you here today. There is truly nothing better than this time of year!! If you're visiting from Gracie's blog, Kitchen Table Art, i'm so glad to have you! Her Holiday home was just gorgeous. If you haven't been by yet, make sure you go visit!

I was SO thrilled to be asked by the lovely Rachel of Like a Saturday to participate in this group of amaze-balls total gorgeous, mouth dropping Christmas inspiration!

Last week,  I shared most of my Christmas home, but for you newbies, i'm so excited to be able to recap it.

We'll start outside. No one told me what a giant pain-in-the-rear putting up Christmas light is! It took us so long, and it didn't turn out anything like my vision! But i'm still happy to have a home to have lights on, and I just love our festive entry.

I kept things pretty darn simple in the entry. A little tinsel here, and a printable there, and I called it a day.

I just love the living room lit up for Christmas! I could honestly keep a tree in here year round. Is  it just me, or does the magic TOTALLY happen when the gifts are wrapped and under the tree?

I just love a full mantle, and this year was no exception! Lots of fun accessories and some battery operated LED's made for a festive display.

Our last stop is the kitchen, where I keep my family nativity scene, and an updated chalkboard. It's definitely the most simple d├ęcor in the house!

And that wraps it up! I'm so happy you stopped by, and I wish I could invite you all in for cookies and cider! (with booze of course). Don't forget to stop by and see Andrea over at Life.Love.Larson to check out more incredible inspiration! (You don't want to miss this lovely ladies gorgeous home!!)

Wait, that wasn't enough?! You want more??! Well don't fret, folks! Friday we'll be wrapping up the goodness with a LINK PARTY for all the Christmas Inspiration you can handle!

These auctions provide a marketplace for farmers to acquire necessary machinery and tools at competitive prices. Held frequently across the state, these events attract a diverse crowd, from local farmers to international buyers.

    Major auction houses and local auctioneers often manage these events, ensuring a fair and transparent process.
