Today I’m on tour with The Nester Christmas Tour of Homes and showing you a few pictures from our humble abode a la Christmas. You won’t find these splashed on the cover of Southern Living Magazine, but nevertheless it’s our “Home for the Holidays”.
Speaking of “Home”, How cute is this advent house? It’s new to us this year (a last year Target clearance find), and it’s been interesting to see what treasure we can fit 4 of in each door. It’s been something the boys look forward to doing each day, “Mama, wanna do the house!”
Stockings are my absolute favorite things to pull out of the Christmas boxes. This year the boys know who’s is who’s and can point to and name each others. Not sure what I’m going to put in them yet…any ideas that won’t cost a fortune x4?
Our new 9 ft. tree! (Yet another 75% off Target end of the year steal!) Squeeeee! I LOVE it. I couldn’t picture how it would look inside our house, but it’s perfect. Of course like any other tree it looks even better in the dark. Don’t you love how a Christmas tree lights a room at night? I think all it needs is a little package love for the tree skirt. =) Guess I should get on that, huh? Maybe I should finish my little bit of shopping first! =)
I scored these little frames a year or two ago at Michael’s for $3 a piece. Are you catching a theme here? Usually I have candles hanging from this rack, but I replaced them with these little wooden signs for the season.
The boys got one Christmas gift a tad early, once I found this Little People Christmas Story Nativity* over 1/2 off, (thanks to a tip from Keeping the Kingdom First). I really wanted a nativity scene for the boys that would remind them early on of the true meaning of Christmas. It’s so sweet to watch them play with the characters and sing “Away in the Manger” while they play. (*Affiliate Link)
These are a few of my favorite Christmas decor items in our home. I’d love to hear about your own styles and favorite trimmings. If you’d like to show the lovely interweb some of your festive Christmas decor, head over to The Nester and add your link. (And leave me a comment so I know who’s to be sure to click on…there will be hundreds of participants in this yearly tour of blogs.)
Keep on Decking Your Halls (and Trees and Mantles, and Doors, and Rooftops, And You Get the POINT)! =)
