Christmas Home Tour 2014

We just moved into this house in June and so this is my first Christmas getting to decorate our large stone fireplace.
What a treat to decorate this mantel!
Our tree is now up next to the fireplace, but I still need to take pictures.
If you'd like to see more of any of the rooms just click on the highlighted room name and you will be taken there.

 Yay! Our Christmas tree is finally up and it makes our whole family so happy .
We put it up in our family room so we can enjoy it every evening!

When I decorated our entry way for Christmas I wanted to keep the look very simple with cottage style, so I just added some fun rustic vintage items.

My dad built the bench for me many years ago, so it is very special.

Right across from the entry way is our living room and it also has  simple cottage style.

You may have noticed I kind of have a thing for deer.
I seem to add more and more each year.

I love our dining room for Christmas, but to be honest we have never used this room!
I hope to have friends over in 2015 and break it in!

Years ago I took this picture of a deer on a snowy day and I recently had in blown up into an engineer print for the dining room.

Last year I painted these unfinished ornaments red and hung them on the the tree.
 I decided to recycle/reuse them this year, but painted them gray and used them as napkin rings.

I can't believe there are only 10 days until Christmas! Eeek!
I wanted to decorate more, bit I'm leaning toward just sitting back and enjoying the 
rest of the season. 
We'll see :)
