My Christmas Tour..

I am a little slow at getting my house all decorated for Christmas.....  We took a family vacation to Disneyland the first week of December and I can't seem to catch all the way up!  
But I am happy to say my house is finally all decorated for Christmas. 

Welcome to my Christmas tour lets start in my entry way.
We don't have a mantle and we have never had matching stockings.  Until now!  
 I decided it was time to retire the mis matched Disney character stocking and find a place to hang some new ones.  

This shelf has been hanging out in my garage for the last few years it was black and broken, I painted it, added some beadboard and hooks and now it is the perfect spot for stockings.

I made these stockings out of linen.  I added some lace and ribbon to them for bit of elegance.  

I love to add vintage elements to my decor whenever I can.  This girl was my husbands grandmothers and I just love her.  She always finds a spot every year.  

In my kitchen I added some fresh cedar with red ornaments to my shelves.

 I created this fun centerpiece for our table.

I am in love with nutcrackers and pom poms this year!

Notice anything wrong with the above picture?
  Oh that is right, my star is falling off my tree...oops! 

I made this box for my tres to sit in this year.  A tree skirt has need on my list for years now and I just can't talk myself into making one, I am feeling good I made stockings.  So I decided to make a box instead.  I love how it turned out!  

I added a book page garland and tucked a few strands of burlap in for a more rustic look.  I bet you wouldn't guess almost all my ornaments are from the dollar store.  With the exception of the big red ornaments and the stars, but I bought those on clearance!  

I saved the best for last.  My Nativity is my favorite decoration of all.  My husband surprised me one year with the full set and I always get excited when we start pulling them out of the box.  It is a reminder that Christ is the reason for the season!

Thank you for visiting!!  I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!!

  1. Brooke, your home is just beautiful!! All of it! And of course the Nativity Scene. I'm still looking for one and I really like yours. I got a late start to decorating too. Life got very busy so I'm keeping it very simple this year. Merry Christmas to you and your family! God Bless You! Diane

  2. It's all very beautiful Brooke - I love the Joy sign and stockings in your entry! I like how you've strung a banner around your Christmas Tree too.

  3. Beautiful decorations! I love your stockings you made from linen, very pretty. The tree is gorgeous - makes me want to decorate mine more. I know what you mean about catching up when you go out of town between Thanksgiving and Christmas - we did that last year and I felt the same way - kind of glad we stayed home this year.
