A Christmas Tea Party

I like to have a Christmas themed tea party every December with a few close friends. :-)
Tyndale, admiring the table before the guests arrive.
Teddy chose to dress like a little gentleman for the party. ;-)
 Tyndale was worn out after all the festivities and took a little snooze in a chair by the fireplace while Christmas tunes played.

Christmas Tour~ The Living Room

This is our "formal" living room. This is where we always put our Fraser Fir tree that we get from a tree farm in the nearby North Carolina mountains. :-) It's a fun family tradition.

 I made the sofa pillows last year from napkins, table runners and placemats. :-)

  I love this joyful pillow I found at Home Goods. ;-)
 Ben and the boys gave me this vintage look decoration last year. So cute!

Christmas Tour~ The Family Room

This is our "white Christmas" themed room. With plenty of pink, as well, of course. ;-) I made all the pillows except the white ruffled one on the left of the sofa and the "peace on earth" pillow on the right, both of which I found at HomeGoods- my favorite store. ;-) Both of the comfy throws are from HomeGoods, too.

 I love these pastel, sparkly Christmas house and church! :-) And the pretty bottlebrush tree....

 This electric fireplace isn't just pretty, it adds some much needed warmth to our family room. The heating/air ducts are smaller in here making it chillier than the rest of our house.

I am hoping to do tours of some more Christmassy rooms in our house soon. :-)

Yes, I am still among the living ;-)

It's been a whole year since I last posted! Guess I don't have as much time for blogging as I used to- it may have to do with 3 little boys and homeschooling-ha.
Anyway, thought I'd just drop in and share my new Fall/Winter quilt. :-)
I found it at a deep discount on the JcPenny's website.
