Welcoming Christmas in Our New Home

On Friday I shared a preview of our new home for the holidays!  I am finished with all my concerts and school is out tomorrow, so I hope to share a full Christmas home tour next week! Even though we didn’t get all of the renovations finsihed in time for the holidays, we are still loving it so much!  The yellow brick home sold to a wonderful new owner who already is making it look beautiful and festive for Christmas. I am so happy!



Now here are some beautiful features from last week’s party!

    Congratulations getting the house prepared for that holiday tour – nothing like a deadline to turn up the pressure! I’m excited to see how you use more blue and white chinoiserie. Blue and white are such best friends. I’m sharing my easy peasy DIY $6 snowflake garland at #156 which provided an inexpensive solution for a hefty expanse of staircase. Nothing like going unplugged (didn’t even add fairy lights!) and old school to pretend it’s 1923. Happy Christmas, Amber.
