It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas :-)

Welcome to our home, where Christmas has definitely arrived! :-)

This is the best pic I could get of our tree, for some reason. Ha

I love these vintage style Christmas houses, and I looked online everywhere trying to find a good price. Then, I went to TJMaxx, and happened to see these ones for $12.99 each! And they are much bigger than the ones that cost way more. I think that store is one of my new favorites. I found some cute vintage looking ornaments there, too. :-)They are glass, however, so one has already been broken by a certain little 2 year old....

I couldn't get a great shot of this wreath, on the inside of our back door, but it is actually one of my favorite Christmas decorations this year. So Wintery!

Some little Christmas touches in the Kitchen. :-)

I love my little, white "shabby chic" tree. :-)Heading downstairs, this is the view from the lower level. We have a split entry, so you can see all the way up to the big tree from down in the family room.

"Silver bells, silver bells..."

I found this little tree at a thrift store. It is pre-lit, and I put most of our red ornaments, and a lot of the boys' cute little toy type ornaments on it. :-)

Our Christmas village. The new addition this year was a fire station, Nathananael's choice. ;-)

This is the front porch entry at night. I tried to take a picture with the flash off first, but the picture was too dark. ha

Hope you are enjoying the beginning of the Christmas season this year! We sure are. :-)


And The Nester

Can't believe those little houses were only $12.99. What a deal!

Thanks for showing us around. Everything looks beautiful. :)

The best part of these Tours is getting to know new friends. I don't have a link up this year as we're in the process of building a new home, but I am so enjoying looking at all the beautiful homes (and getting some good decorating ideas!). Your home is just lovely - warm, cozy and welcoming. Thank you for sharing such hospitality.

I'm visiting from the Inspired Room blog tour. Oh how I love your cottage in the heartland! I have a cottage in the northwest so I was drawn to your site. Love the back porch especially.
Have a blessed Christmas,

Such beautiful decor. My favorite is the little white tree. It's so pretty. (I bought a white tree with the after Christmas sales yesterday and am looking forward to decorating it next year.)
