Blogger Stylin Christmas Home Tour 2013

I'm so excited to share our Christmas Home Tour today for Lindsay's Blogger Stylin Home Tours holiday edition. You might be coming over from Amanda at Our Humble Abode. If so welcome to our house.
I won't even write a lot and just show you the photos. I can get into some details next time.
Some were taken in better lighting than others.

Get ready for a ton of photos.

(Our sofa is the Claudia sofa from Macy's by the way. Click HERE)

I stole my daughter's cuckoo clock and painted it gold glitter. She loves it and I promised her that she could have it back in her room after Christmas. This so goes with my blog design ;)

I made the Ikea Christmas tree canvas last year but added some gold to it this year. I still love it so much. (click HERE so see instructions) The chandelier is similar to last years decor as well.

There are a few things in our house that will always stay throughout the years and that is our German Christmas items like this handmade authentic ($$$) candle pyramid. Our collection of smoke men and the angel and her matching soldier.
The poor pyramid is slightly burnt :(

This is my dishtowel canvas that I made. Click HERE to see the details.

This is yesterday's Kate Spade inspired box makeover made with vinyl strips.
Click HERE if you missed it.

Make sure to check out Bethany from Dwellings by Devore who is coming up after me on the list.

And of course all the other fabulous tours as well. So much fun seeing all the different styles in this series. Don't you agree?

Have a great weekend! Yes, you read right! I won't post tomorrow ;) on Friday. This is it instead. No biggy, right? I'm trying to get some Christmas shopping and wrapping done and I also have a neighborhood cookie exchange at my house on Saturday. I need to get some things prepared for that.

  64. So classy and so fun all at the same time! Merry Christmas!

  65. Definitely stealing some ideas for Christmas and I esp love the warm light. The Claudia sofas that you have- what color are those? Online I see dove gray and slate gray, but yours look much whiter.

    1. Thanks so much! I think my color was called ivory. Didn't even realize that they don't have that option anymore.

  66. I love your home and your decorations! Would you mind sharing where you bought your gray and white striped curtains in the dining room and living room? I love them!

    1. I painted them myself:

      But they do sell similar ones at Crate and Barrel and different colored ones at Pottery Barn kids.

    2. You did a great job! Thanks so much!
