Any hoo, I am thinking about Christmas…thinking… It is a truly special time of year. I saw this holiday home tour shared on another blog and I thought I would share it too. There are some interesting ideas here. Even the non-holiday decor is interesting. But most of all these photos were a nice alternative to the over the top, shove Christmas in your face, kind of decorating that seems to be all around me.
My favorite item in the photos is the “Oh what fun” sign. I love new and different decorations like this. The cool thing about this is that you could easily DIY this yourself and freshen up your normal holiday decor. I love decorating for the holidays but I dislike how much space my Christmas decorations take up when I only enjoy them one month or really since I’m the “no rush” type only few weeks out of the year. So what I like about making a sign like this is that you could make it, display it and then totally paint over it or cover it in fabric and use it the rest of the year somewhere else. I think I mentioned before that I like for items around my home to be dual purpose so I can justify their hanging around.
I have several of these canvases hiding out right now that previously had fabric on them. So I may just have to give this a try. I love this idea. Ok. I’ll keep you posted. Hope you enjoy the rest of the tour!
So, I gotta know…are you sitting in your full decked out for the holidays living room or do you like to ease into Christmas like me?
P. S. Ha, ha…. I just realized…look what else is in the photo? A bead board entry way…. I guess it really got stuck in my brain!! My to do list just keeps getting longer!
