2018 chalkboard Christmas tree

Last year, beginning in December and going forward about six months, I had a lot of trouble with my blog. Many things weren’t posted last Christmas, including the chalkboard tree for 2018. After posting the start of this year’s tree, I realized I never posted last year’s tree. I’ll fix that now! The theme for […]

Christmas trees

I haven’t taken time to get pictures of all the decorating yet, but here are some that my eleven year-old grands took for me just before the open house started. More about the open house soon! As you step in the door, just to the left is the living room. Here you’ll find the Family […]

silver and blue

The Christmas tree in the guest room has a silver and blue theme, with a lean toward a vintage feel. The tree has white LED lights that have a bluish cast. The tree rotates. So much prettier in person, but you get the idea. 🙂 By the way, this is the tree I spray painted […]

thanks, hgtv!

We’ve redecorated the addition which includes the guest room, and I knew the Christmas tree had to be something other than the Victorian themed tree we’ve had in the past. The new decor is cottage / country. I found a pink tree for DD#3’s room on Ebay, so decided to use her old tree for […]

Disclaimer…I don’t advocate this many trees for everyone! LOL If you don’t know already, I *love* Christmas and everything about it. I love the decorating, the entertaining, the cooking…every detail. Here’s a little preview of what’s coming. The living room tree is a 9′ tree that sits on a 24″ box. The ceilings are 12′ […]

putting away Christmas in the downstairs bath

The downstairs bath has a garden themed tree, full of pictures from our own yard. It’s surprising how much bigger that bathroom seems after the renovation done by https://www.kitchencapital.com.au/bathroom-renovations, we were able to place our Christmas tree down here. The garland is simply silk flowers (red and white carnations and roses) cut apart and tucked […]

putting away Christmas in the living room

A few weeks ago, DH and I took down all the Christmas decorations in the dining room and living room except the living room tree and the window toppers. This week I tackled the tree. It’s a big job. The tinsel has to be removed, the ornaments sorted (ours, the kids’), the popcorn/cranberry strings taken […]

putting away Christmas in the guest room

Because we were gone to New Orleans for a week, I am behind on putting away Christmas. Yesterday I finished the guest room. The room doesn’t have a lot of Christmas decorations. Three boxes hold it all. It didn’t take long to put it away. One storage box is an ornament box, which holds most […]
