Tracy's Christmas House Tour

HOUSE TOURSTracy & Robin2 Comments

Welcome, come on in and Merry Christmas you you!

Christmas is one of our favorite times of the year, we love to celebrate the birth of our Savior and give presents and all the food and family and fun, it's fitting that the biggest celebration around is Jesus Birthday!

I thought I would start with our tree, I was attempting "rustic glam" haha, If that is even a thing?? My intent was to do a neutral palette and use the green from the trees and wreaths, anyway, here we go...

The tree is a 9ft slim, the ornaments are pine cones, a burlap-ish top ribbon and silver, white and crystal type ornaments. I also have white doves on it that we made as well as some peace, joy and noel cutouts in silver and the tree is sitting in an old galvanized tub, my favorite part.

The four part art wreath on the wall is the newest addition to our shop, I am constantly changing my house and as I'm changing things I always have new art in mind, I hope you like it.

Here is a nice view of the living room, Robin gave me my Christmas present early ( a new rug) I love it! It's from USA rugs and it's soft soft and plush, I highly recommend it.

I put a real mixed pine wreath in the window, since our tree is "faux" I still like to have some fresh pine in the house to make it smell good, I bought them plain and added the burlap and pine cones and the little white feather trees are super cute with the sleigh.

We made this lovely little chalk board, I thought it would be a nice addition to write all of our holiday messages and greetings on.

I have several small trees that I sprayed with fake snow and they turned out really well, it ended up being about half to whole can per little tree, depending on its size if you would like to do the same.

The adorable sweater button pillow is from ikea, so is our sectional yay!! super excited about it! It only took me a year to talk the hubs into a white sofa and even though we have it I still don't think he's convinced, I think my only saving grace is that it's slip covers that can all be taken off and washed. But seriously, I love this sofa, it completes me! hahaha

This pic is a little blurry but I wanted you to see my Michigan pillow, it was favorite purchase from a craft show we recently were in, it has a little red button heart where we live.

Here is a close-up of the feather trees, these little guys were very easy and fast to make. I just rolled a piece of cardstock into a cone shape, taped it and hot glued on white feathers (kid craft white feathers)

I love love this pic, I had to add it. This is Matt 1:21, such a beautiful verse and one of my favorites. "Jesus is the reason for the season"

Yes, even the bedrooms get trees =]

Here's another mini tree, I love these little trees,  with some birch candle stick holders from Hobby Lobby with a galvanized bucket full of pine cones, Randee and I went all over our town finding different pine cones, it was quite fun! Randee also got me this wine rack and I painted the bottom a griege color and the top white and distressed it, I love San Pelegrino water bottles, and they're green so they fit right in.

This is my beautiful picture of Jesus that my mom drew for me for my birthday and the grandkids furry stockings.

And one last pic of our tree at night, I had to add it, it was so pretty. We were all here watching "It's a wonderful life" and it made me think of you all and the part you have all played in making our lives so wonderful! God's very best blessings and peace and joy from us to you! Merry Christmas, I hope you have a great one!
