Christmas Home Tour 2013

Better late than never y’all.  I am bringing you my Christmas home tour 2013 today.  First of all if you love Christmas home tours you can see my home from 2012, 2011, and 2010 as well.  Every year I change things up a bit but some things you will see remain the same year after year.  Also I am joining in with an everything Christmas tour this week.  You can check out Denise Designed for the full line up of home tours this week and to follow along.  Now come on in to my country home.

I will start with my barnwood mantel which hubby made me around this time last year.  I still love filling it with seasonal goodies and of course hanging our stockings this time of year.

I started on the right with my snow and cranberries centerpiece.  I then layered in more red, gold, and white.

I have lots of dear on the mantel including my glitter dipped deer silhouettes.

I love throwing ornaments and vintage bulbs in a container for quick and easy vintage decor.  I put my gold silhouette and mini snow globe ornaments on the mantel as well.

A galvanized bucket piled high with ornaments also adorns the mantel.

I had to add some trees of course.  This tree trio includes my gold leaf trees, painted milk glass trees, and faux nailhead trees.

Next stop on the tour is our tree.  If you have not been around here long let me tell you about our tree tradition.  Every year we load up in the truck and go hunt a cedar tree on our farm.  We cut it down, load it up, and that is our Christmas tree.  It is a fun tradition that we all cherish.

This year we added blue and silver ornaments to our rustic cedar tree.  Under the tree is a train, vintage car, and of course presents.  The tree skirt (which actually is not even visible anymore) is a collection of vintage grain sacks.

I also have a few surfaces in my home where I create Christmas vignettes.  I love to add in my son’s toys to the decor.  On the left is a little advent calendar I made for the kids last minute.

Also on this table there is a little mini tree and this year it is full of handmade ornaments.  You can find instructions for my string art, gold frame, or embroidery hoop ornaments here.

Under that little tree is a something very special.  We found that little bird nest in the Christmas tree once we had it in the house.  I love that extra treasure that comes with our tree tradition.

This is another surface that I dress up a bit for Christmas.  I started with my sheet music tree here.

I added in my candy cane button tree and glitter mason jar luminary.  You have yet to see that snow globe project but y’all stay tuned.
