Welcome to the 12 days of Christmas Tour. For the past three years, I have been joining the lovely ladies from Magnolia Lane and the Evolution of Style for their 12 days of Christmas Tour. If it weren’t for Jenny, Amy & and Christy, I might not have gotten my act together! Thanks ladies for including me again.
I am a working decorator so this time of year is crazy busy for me. I don’t join several other tours and show different parts of my home. What you see here is what you get (the whole shebang!). I was planning to show my entire home but had a computer glitch. Please stop by tomorrow to see the rest of my house.
Come on in!
My front door is always a challenge because of the door color. Most greens do not compliment my front door color. This year I grabbed a grapevine wreath from Michaels and added juniper, eucalyptus, eucalyptus berries, dried hydrangea pods and bay all from my yard. The bells came from Joann’s.
I try to change up my decor a little bit every year. This year I gathered osage oranges off the ground near my daughter’s home. The chartreusey green was my jumping off point for the decor in the rest of my house. Here is Beau posing in the entry. The beautiful garland was provided by our sponsor Lynch Creek Farms.
You can buy your own here. I can’t tell you how full and fragrant this beautiful garland is. I embellished it with moss, twigs, osage oranges, pine cones, eucalyptus and turkey feathers. All gathered from my yard or others. The burlap ribbon is from Papermart (a great source for wrapping and ribbon).
My vintage wicker cargo trunk is fitted with the same elements (moss balls and found objects that I have on it year round). You can see more of my entry in our Project Design How to Update Your Entry Post here.
I have done this mannequin in different settings for several years. You can see the first incarnation on one of the Berries and Branches tours here, 2015 here and last years version for Farmers Union Pourhouse here. I took this to the Pourhouse but couldn’t resist a shot in my entry.
And lastly here is my grape gathering bucket filled with juniper, more osage oranges, sugar pines and moss on the landing of the stairs. If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t please do here.
Please stop by tomorrow to see the rest of my home decorated. Don’t miss the other two bloggers who are sharing their homes today.
Annie from Most Lovely Things, and Painted by Karla Payne. Thanks again Christy, Amy and Jenny for making this all happen. I know how much work it is. A big thank you to Lynch Creek Farms for providing the lovely greenery.
If you missed any of the tours that came before us have a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine) and enjoy all of the tours.
