Day Three: Christmas 2016 Home Tour

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Today is the third day of mine and Victoria's link up and each day keeps getting better and better!  Yesterday's topic on traditions was so sweet to read with each and every blogger who linked up.  Victoria and I really appreciate those of you who are linking up--we love reading each post and chatting about it with each other!
 So don't forget to grab our graphic and link back to both of us with your home tour!

This is the second Christmas we've lived in our home, so I had an idea of where I was putting some decorations.  I'm also still acquiring decorations :)

Come on in and let me show you around!!
We have candles in all of the windows, and pictured is the entry to our house.

 This is the entryway.  Last year I had our nativity on this chest, but this year I decided to do something a little different!

 The view from the front door

 A vintage bride and groom ornament gifted to us for our first Christmas

 My secret pal at school last year gifted me this ornament--so perfect for the tree

 The little snowman was Dustin's must-have purchase last year for our home, and while I wasn't thrilled about it in the store, I think he did a great job picking it out because I love it now!  

 I didn't put our stockings up yet because I have to take them down each time we turn the fire on (thanks Hobby Lobby for the flammable stockings).  I'll get them out for us to fill for each other before Christmas morning and invest in better stockings next year!

 I love the gold, white, silver, brown, and mercury glass ornaments on our tree!

 Nothing special on our breakfast table this year.  I may hit up after Christmas sales to buy something for the table for next year.

 My view while doing dishes--I have a Woodwick candle burning next to my Christmas soap; a gorgeous bouquet of flowers a sweet friend gave me Friday, and a themed plate from Target to look at while looking at the tree...or listening to Christmas music :)

 Isn't this beautiful?!

 An extra house from my MIL's Christmas Village fit perfectly on the kitchen counter

 And now my dining room!  Next year I hope to have curtains bought and hung and art on the least I have a table this year ha!

 My table isn't complete but it's perfect for this year!  I grabbed these pewter chargers from Walmart and my friend Emily has the dishes I should have bought before they sold out (next year I'm buying them!).  I bought tartan fabric to use under my dough bowl that holds and assortment of ornaments and two trees from Hobby Lobby.  Since we don't host a Christmas meal, I'm not too concerned with finishing this table just yet.

 These trees are hanging out in the corner this year since they match the color scheme of the table decorations.

And one more of my table and chairs because they are my favorite most-recent purchase!  Fun Fact:  Victoria and I are actually table twins--just in different washes!

I also have a Christmas tree up in our master bedroom, but at the time of these pictures, I was sick and had been laying in our bed all day.  #reallife
