Boomama's Christmas Tour of Homes

Yesterday was Boomama's Tour and tomorrow I'll be participating on A cottage Industry's tour!


Christmas Tour of Homes
It's finally time for my favorite thing: Boomama's Tour of Homes. If you haven't ever been to this - you will need to go here and check it out. Starting tomorrow there will be hundreds of bloggers who post tours of their holiday homes for you to enjoy. I'm pretty sure while I'm home for Christmas - my mom and I will be looking at these homes for hours!
So here is my tour:

Our front door - come on in!
The first room you see to the left is our dining room
This is our living room - you can see we have football on. This is pretty much the case 24/7 from August - January.
Our TV cabinet and the wreath I made on it. I still love how it turned out.
Our tree - as of yesterday we finally have presents underneath it!
Coffee Table
Our mantle - we have five stockings - one for me, one for Scott, one for Dawson (our dog) and two in hopes that one day we can put our children's names on them - when God decides to bless us with babies. Hopefully next year at this time - there will be a name on at least one of the stockings!
Our stockings are probably one of my favorite Christmas Decorations. I just love mine!
A side table in our living room. My mom took our Christmas card a few years ago and had a neat picture made out of it.
The "Gold" tree in our kitchen
One view of our kitchen
These presents are two of my favorite holiday purchases this year
The other view of our kitchen
Our family room looking in from the kitchen
The doors to Scott's office
Our Christmas Card Picture. Thanks for visiting us! Please come again!!!

That's the end of the tour! Merry Christmas to you! I hope you remember why we celebrate - our Saviour's birth. For through Him lies all the hope and joy in the world - I hope you know Him. If you don't, there is no better time to meet Him than right now! It would be the best Christmas gift you ever received.

Thanks for the awesome tour. All the decorations look great! Let me know when you're in LA and have time, we'll just go over to Paul Michael's together. It's the best. You will love it!

Oh my word... How beautiful and festive your house looks!!! I love the arrangement on your dining room table... And the ornament wreath... And the stockings! Thank you for letting us "in"!

Fran said...

Beautiful Kelly!! I just loved it all. I like your stocking too. I bet I know where you found them. I adore that catalog. :)

I had to decide not to participate in Boomamas tour bc we are moving in 2 weeks and my brain is not creative and cute and funny to make fun of our house and Christmas decorations right now so I won't be in on the tour.....other than looking! :)

And, I'm off to pack, clean out, shop, organize, bake, pack some more and then spread the Christmas cheer! WHEW!

Love,
Fran

Merry Christmas! Your stockings are just too adorable!

Thanks for the tour.

Heather said...

Kelly,
Your home is beautiful! I love all of your decorations, especially your stockings. I'll be praying God will bless you and Scott with a little one, and maybe this time next year, you will have a new name hanging on the mantle. By the way, Dawson is adorable. I had a precious white toy poodle growing up who I adored. Now we have a Bichon Frise (which looks just like my poodle). Hope you and your family have a blessed Christmas!
Heather

You have a wonderful home. I just love your kitchen. Those cabinet's are antique looking, maybe french looking is what I'm tring to say. I just love them. I love your Bichon dog, so sweet.

boomama said...

Gorgeous. Are the stockings from Ballard's? Love them. And so sweet that you already have them for the babies-to-be. I really love your botanicals on the wall in your dining room - something tells me we would have a fun time shopping. :-) Where'd you get the little presents in your kitchen? I'll stop now. :-)

RRR said...

I love how you did the pictures on your dining room wall! I would love to do something similar to that on mine. Where did you find such cute prints? I was thinking about looking for a cute print book and then going to a craft store to find frames for the ones I liked but I'm scared they would look too home made!

Anonymous said...

I am getting ready to paint my house. I love the colors you have in your living room and dining room.
Do you know what kind of paint and what the colors are called?
I loved your decoratings and am reading your blog..
