Christmas Tour

Welcome to our Christmas home! 
Come on in and take a peek around. 
I think I'll keep the words to a minimum and let the pictures do most of the talking.
 If you have any questions let me know and I'll be sure to answer them!

Right inside our front door you'll find our nativity. It's the first thing we put out every year, and the last thing we put away. 

The mantel in the living room is simple and natural, but the lions add a touch of whimsy.

I brought a few touches of red back to our cottage living room for the holiday season. 

The tree is decked out in red, white, and burlap. I was going for a Nordic cottage look, and I like the freshness of a simple color scheme.

A few details from around the main floor. I haven't gotten around to photographing the family room and  kids' tree yet, but hope to soon.

I revamped my burlap wreath for Christmas. 

I shared this vignette on Instagram already. The darling {and FREE} chalkboard printable is from Hoosier Homemade.

I took down the window treatment over the sink and hung up a burlap banner and little wreath. I'm so enjoying the extra light, I may leave it this way. The banner says "Noel, Noel" but it's hard to see in the picture.
Here's a better view from the evening.
Speaking of evening, that's when you can really enjoy the tree in all her glowing beauty.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Merry Christmas!
