A Woodland Coffee Table Vignette

A woodland coffee table vignette seemed to be the perfect choice

of a theme this year to coordinate with my new Pottery Barn Deer Crewel pillows.

I gathered woodland items from my Christmas/Holiday stash

and carefully created the vignette to coordinate with the decor in the room.

Florentine Nesting Tables

On one of my trips to Florida this month,

I had the opportunity to visit some antique shops in Ft. Myers,

while hubby was playing in a Baseball tournament.

I found something that I knew would fit in the car easily,

as they could be stacked inside of each other . . . Florentine Nesting tables.

A Southern Christmas Mantel of Magnolia Leaves

Love Magnolia leaves to decorate the house  for  Christmas, as it is so very Southern.

My Southern Christmas mantel of Magnolia leaves

was the first thing on the agenda for creating my Christmas decor this year.

It seems like styling the mantel is always the first thing that I do,

setting the tone for the room’s decor.

I really kept it very simple this year. Truly, I did. I even surprised myself!

Little Ladies Snowman Luncheon

I am sharing this tablescape and luncheon again.

I hosted a Little Ladies Luncheon for my Sweetie and her friends and it was a hit.

So for those who have Sweeties like me, here is something that everyone involved would enjoy.

There is always lots of excitement and festivities

for the little ones (and us bigger ones too), prior to and during Christmas day.

After Christmas, for them, there is a little less excitement

other than enjoying their gifts they have so happily received.

I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to have my sweetie over with a few of

her besties for a Little Ladies luncheon to celebrate the winter season?

Just a casual one, of great fun and giggles and treats.

You know how little girls can be!

The Year’s Past Christmas Tour

When I begin to decorate my home for Christmas,

I look back on the year’s past Christmas tour to see how I can use my current Christmas

decor in a different way that I had in the past.

While referencing last year’s Christmas tour, I thought that I would present it again

to you and for those who are new to my blog, a chance to see what I did last year.

Decorations once used in the kitchen has landed in my great room this year.

I am dancing to the Christmas Shuffle.

Welcome to my 2015 Christmas Home Tour.

Welcome to my home!

This Year’s Christmas Decorating Inspiration

This year’s Christmas decorating inspiration began with a pillow.

Was it the design or was it the beautiful shades of color that attracted me to it.

I would have to say, both.

When I packed away last season’s Christmas decorations I did a lot of purging . . .

giving away and donating many ornaments and decorations.

I made a decision not to buy any more decorations as I had so much

that I have collected over the years.

But when I saw this pillow, I caved!

The Christmas Porch with Rudy ~ A Magazine Feature

Remember my Rudy that was on the front porch dressed for Christmas last year?

He was there greeting friends and family with his red and black checked ribbon scarf.

Well he made the big time. He appeared this month in a magazine.

Fall Home Tour

As I start to gather ideas about how I am going to decorate my home

for Christmas, I wander about the house enjoying the Fall decor that I created this year.

For me, it is always sad to put away decor of the previous season,

however, exciting to bring out the decorations for the Season of Joy.

Before I put the Fall decor away, I decided to do a recap of my home for Fall this year.

It all started with the front porch.
