Living Room Christmas Home Tour

Hi Everyone!!
I love seeing homes all decked out for the Holiday's, don't you?  
Today I'm sharing my Living Room Christmas Home Tour. 


Our front door opens to this room, so I wanted to make it warm and inviting.  
We have big oversized furniture, that I love, but makes decorating this smaller sized room a challenge.


This spot is the favorite in the entire room.  
This chair is super comfy, it's view to the tv is perfect and it's right by our Christmas tree. 
 My children race to sit in this chair every day after school.


We put another tree in our playroom for all of our kids' ornaments so I was able to decorate this one how I wanted.  I used burlap, grapevine, snowflakes and various red ornaments that we've used in Christmases past.  


The handprint tree skirt is one of my favorite things.  
We started it the year our youngest was born.  
So we have 7 years of handprints. Love it!  
I added 2014 handprints after this photo was taken.  
Every year I trace my kids hands onto white felt and cut them out.  Then I hot glue them onto the tree skirt and add the year with puff paint. 


Our stockings with the lighted garland I added evergreen to.  


I've seen little snow jars all over blog land so I had to try some myself.  
I love how they turned out!! 
The red truck in front is a toy that my husband used to play with as a child (I added the mini tree).  
The other 2 are from Target.  
You can also see our Christmas countdown blocks.  


Another little corner in our home.
I added real Christmas tree clippings to my grain sifters and a Jenni Bowlin print.
The snowflake art in the gold frame is a burlap/snowflake placemat that I loved so much I decided to frame it.  I pinned and taped it without cutting, 
just in case I decide to do something different another time.
I made the plaid pillow cover from a skirt that I got at Goodwill.  I loved the fabric so I pieced it all together and made a pillow cover.  

Over by our front door is a shelf with our nativities.  
The bear one on the box is my fave!  
I think I bought it when I graduated from high school. 
It's practically vintage now!  
We also love have the Little People Nativity that my kids still randomly play with.  
And I can't help but push the angel down to hear "Away in a Manger" each time I walk by.  


I will be back later this week with a tour of the rest of the house.

  1. Your tree is so beautiful! I love the idea of two trees. My husband has a bunch of sentimental ornaments he made as a kid that never fit in with my "theme" haha but I know as our kids get older they'll want to make ornaments too. A tree for mom and a tree for the kids sounds like a pretty sweet solution. :)

  2. I love the clock behind the Christmas tree. A creation of yours no doubt. I also liked the hand print tree skirt. My mom was a stooge so much of the time that as an adult I find it hard to muster up my own holiday cheer. Thanks for sharing yours.
