Take it on Tuesday Blog Hop: House Tour

posted in: Simply Home | 11

House Tour!

In addition to what I showed you last week (the kitchen and my comfort and joy banner), here are pictures of the rest of my house. It’s not grand by any means – we are newlyweds and working on a budget. I’m so thankful for what we have though – a warm, inviting home! (**I apologize for the lightening on these pictures – I’m doing the best I can with a camera phone. Anyone have tips for using a camera phone?)

This is what you see on arriving. Besides our wine bottle tree, we also have icicle lights around our outside window. It’s rather festive!

The stockings my mother-in-law gave us last year!

We have our Christmas tree right in front out our window. I like to have the shades open so I can see our Christmas tree as I am leaving or arriving. Here is also the wooden nativity set I bought while in the Philippines.

Our wall clock – now winter themed!! Here’s what it looked like before.


Finally, the little bit of Christmas on top of our piano.

    • Yes, Christmas is such a fun time to get new ideas for crafts and to have such a fun time decorating with CHRISTMAS LIGHTS – I love them! I’m glad you found my blog too!! I’ve loved stopping by your blog, for sure! Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  3. I’m impressed with the wonderful decorations! Unfortunately I was born minus the craft gene, so I got nothing! Just stopped by from SITS to say hi, and hope you’ll visit me anyway!

  7. I’ve been really into papercraft this year for holiday decorations. I did a blog post about my favorites here: http://frugaltownie.blogspot.com/2011/12/diy-holiday-decor-papercraft.html
