Twas The Tour Before Christmas
I've seen so many lovely things, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites with you. There are so many beautiful things, it was hard to decide which items to feature, but I managed to narrow it down to about a dozen.
Thanks to everyone for inviting us into your homes. I hope that everyone else will enjoy and be as inspired by these decorations as I was.
This wreath at Our Life As We Wait for Lilly Rae. Actually the entire front of this house was just beautiful. It's my favorite architectural style, and the decorations make it look just stunning.
This banister from Take 90 West...and Set this Circus Down. I love this garland! My mom has some little red pajamas hanging on her tree, but I would have never thought to use them like this. This page had a lot of other cute decor as well, but this was my favorite.
This tree at Fiddle Dee Dee - Our Sweet Southern Life. I love--LOVE this tree. One thing I've discovered from looking at these tours is that I love peppermint stuff! I like this tree because it looks very elegant, but it's also fun. And look at the topper! Great colors too, and a beautiful home!
This doorway at Southern Fried Dreams. I just love this doorway. I like the material used, and the way the light green and dark red blend together. Very festive.
This topper at Tiaras & Tantrums. Now that is a topper! I loved the whole tree, but the topper was just the best! I love the gold butterflies, and the red balls give it a really good base. The little "chutes" that go up are cute too. I'm thinking this must be the latest style in toppers, because I've seen several with the chutes at the top. I wish I could find one for my tree.
This scrappy tree at Marleyblog. What a fun craft! Again, I love the colors of this, particularly all the different designs in the scrap pieces and how they all blend & contrast with each other. I simply had to feature this, not only because it's so cute, but because it's unique. I haven't seen anything else like it.
This tree from A Picture is Worth A 1000 Words. You would have to see the post to fully appreciate this tree. This tree had very few ornaments on it, but she livened it up with some ribbon and some embellishments. I could hardly believe it was the same tree. The best part is the little white feathery things, and the little red bead-looking things. Again, not sure what these are exactly, but I wish I had some for my tree.
