Holiday Home Tour: Part II

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

Hi! Happy Holidays!!! Today I'm psyched to be joining in on the Nester's Christmas Tour of Homes 2009. This is going to be big, people (last year when Boo Mama hosted there were over 900 participants!!)...head over and check it out, then settle in for some great holiday cheer, you could spend all day looking at these wonderful links.

On Friday I posted the first part of our Christmas decorating...spots like the foyer and kitchen. Today I'll show you around the rest of the place...and I'll try not to talk too much:)

Thanks so much for stopping by! (And for having me over.) Lots of thanks to the Nester for hosting us, its been a lot of fun. Hope everyone has a great holiday:)

Ps. Urgghhh...what is up with my centering? I have everything set to centered and its all off - text, photos - its been like this for awhile. Anyone know what could be going on?


  1. Gorgeous photos!!! I love your silver stars on saddle stitch ribbon! And the REAL pine garland and wreaths must smell divine! Jealous. What a stunning tour! Great job!

  2. Your house is so beautiful decorated for the holdays. I love you simple and real decorating style.

  3. Very beautiful! I love all of the mercury glass and the ornaments on the show rod...such a cute idea:) Thanks for sharing!

  4. Just love it all! I really love your understated approach to decorating. I think I always want to do that, but then the "cluttered crazy person" in me just starts putting stuff everywhere! I get totally out of control sometimes . . . well, according to Hubby!

    Thanks so much for sharing. Can't wait to see more!

  5. Just so beautiful! You have some fantastic ideas that I would like to copy...sorry :)! I love the look and smell of fresh greenery! The outdoor branch is such a great touch (and the added ornaments are a bonus). I love the framed Christmas verse and the stars on the shower curtain...a wonderful touch for year-round!

  6. Beautiful - thanks so much for sharing!

  7. Your home is so beautiful and it's stunning at Christmas. I love your style. You did a fantastic job - as usual! :)

    Have a great week!

  8. Gorgeous! I love the fresh greenery and your nativity! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  9. especially LOVE your garland and fresh wreaths! Merry Christmas!

  10. Beautiful! Makes me want to start my decorations all over again!

  11. Love it all! Especially your decorated twig in the vase (I wanted to do that and forgot. Drat!) and all of the gorgeous wreaths! So pretty.

  12. Can I tell you how much I love what you did? The simple wreath hanging on the french door is my favorite. Oh, but then there is the square wreath on the four mirrors. And the metallic touches everywhere...yum! It is just gorgeous!!!

  13. Sarah - Oh me oh my....I am lovin that square wreath - it creates such geometric yumminess...must have! And I am such a sucker for mercury glass ornaments. I love your beauties...just in case you ever get sick of them and want to send em to a fellow blogger,keep me in mind, they would be part of a loving family in a disease free home that has experience :)

  20. Your home should definatly be in a magazine. Seriously, you should submit some of these photos somewhere. I'm particularly loving the stars hanging from the shower curtain. I also copied down the idea of gift wrapping small boxes for my next years decorating. Thanks for the idea!
