Christmas 2012 Around Our Home

Between family, work and volunteer commitments I have been absent from blogging this month. My spare time in the evenings and on weekends has been spent finishing some home projects and making plans for Christmas this year (our Canadian Thanksgiving is over in mid October so it's fair game for us Canuck's now!)



I'm sharing a look back at Christmas décor in our home last year for inspiration and to get me in the mood for planning and prep. Some new items have already been purchased and I will be finding some new ways to use our regular decorations. You can click on the titles under the photos to link back to the original posts with more details.



I will still be using lots of neutrals and naturals and adding more red this year.










I hope to share a few items I have made and painted recently and some glimpses of Christmas décor in our home as well. But first I have a bathroom to paint and some furniture to move around.

  4. Awwh! I wonder if you will do similar decor this year. I keep wanting to do all different but I know there is no way to get around putting all the traditional ornaments on our tree. I am getting excited to decorate - be you are too.

  5. Oy, Elizabeth! You have such 'the knack!' Seriously, your home should be photographed for a magazine. Love the coziness of it all in your house too.

  7. I always like your Christmas decor Elizabeth. Your front porch looks so nice and I like your coffee table decor. I have about finished decorating here except for the tree. Have you got yours done yet?

  9. I know it's hard to fit time in for blogging if you're already working full time outside of your home and taking care of a family and planning for the holidays. It was nice to look back at your Christmas decor from last year. It seems every year Christmas comes around faster and faster! Looking forward to seeing your new decor this year.

  13. It's great to look back and see what you really liked and what you think needs a change. I've just started ... done an outside vignette using my hoe, hoe, hoe sign, some skates and my reindeer pot. Now I'm working on an inside arrangement ... branches, twigs, stars, pinecones and maybe more. It's fun to just take my time and try out different things.
