House Tour...

I usually decorate the house for Christmas over Thanksgiving weekend...
- but -
we were not home for Thanksgiving, our little get-a-way continues for several more days,
so we decorated before Thanksgiving, when we had the time!
I only decorate the main rooms, 
nothing upstairs and I no longer decorate the railings to the upstairs.
First is the Family Room, 
this is my favorite because the green and red match so well in here.
It's a huge room, with an 18 foot high slanted ceiling.

Pretty much everything goes and is replaced with a Christmas themed item.

Next up, the Living Room
I use golds, blues and snowmen in this room because those are the natural colors in the room.
Red and green just doesn't look good!!

I have decorations in the entry way, kitchen, and even in the bathroom.
But I think you get the idea.
We will decorate outside when we get home from our trip.

The hubs helps a lot with this, I could never do it alone.
Many Thanks to the hubs!!


  1. Amazing Debbie. Your home looks so cozy and inviting. I really like it a lot. Gives me inspiration for my own home. Have a great weekend ahead!

  2. Hello Debbie. Your home is just beautiful. I love your fireplaces. I love all your Christmas decorations, beautifully done.
    Have a happy day and weekend!

  3. Wow! Debbie! Such a beautiful home! And beautiful decor!
    I wouldn't know where to start in all that space but you have just the right touch!

  4. I don't think beautiful or gorgeous are the words to describe, Debbie. I LOVE IT!!!!

    Hope your trip is going well.


  5. WOW! What a gorgeous room! I love all the pretty things you have and the books and candles. LOVE the tray with the Christmas trees...I think they are candles. You have a beautiful home and I know you enjoy it decorated for the holidays! Hugs!

  6. Your Christmas House is all dressed up and ready to welcome you home! That was smart to decorate early.
    Hope you are feeling well and enjoying your trip. So many comfy sitting areas waiting for when you get back. Just add hot chocolate and light the fire!

  7. Such a beautiful home and you have an eye for decorating, Debbie.

  8. Wow! You have a huge and gorgeous home! Just wow! Everything is gorgeous, added to, by the windows, windows, windows. And your husband built this, yes?

    I also noticed pic #5, the distressed table. Since my husband is a woodworker and loves old wood, it caught my eye. :-) I'm sure there is a story, which goes with this little table.

    No wonder you can be perfectly content at home. You have a lovely home, where anyone would be content.

    Travel safely,

  9. So pretty...I love snowmen, they always look so happy.

  10. Oh Debbie, your home looks ever so beautiful and charming! I think if my home was decorated like yours I wouldn't want to leave it for the whole month of December {{smiles}}

    Hugs to you!

  11. Gorgeous decorations. these make my three little trees seem kind of puny.Oh well, this is what I can comfortably do on my own.

  12. I love your gorgeous home Debbie so spacious!! Your decorations are beautiful.
    Enjoy your break and your weekend :)

  13. Oh my dear friend, your home is so beautiful. I always love this Christmas post of your decorations because you have such lovely, cute and fun ones. I love that you are off having an adventure. We ended up having to get a new tree this year so I hope our tree decorations go well on it. I will hope to show some photos.
    I have a daughter and her family moving in with us for a while on Dec. 8th. We are decorating before they come. However, we won't be here for Christmas. We are meeting our other daughter and family in Hawaii. I haven't ever been a way for Christmas and I can't imagine being in a warm place. I am excited to go since we don't get very many trip opportunities.
    Sending loving thoughts and hugs your way!

  14. Oh wow....what a beautiful home. I love all the decor too. Great job.

  15. Debbie, You have many pretty things to decorate your home. I love the big room too. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  16. You've got quite the eye for decorating (and quite the house to decorate)!

  17. You have such a beautiful home!!! I love the tray with the trees and those sweet felt snowman, they are my favorite of them all!! I just love your big row of windows, that's what I wish my home had was more windows :) Glad your hubby helps with the decorating, Greg helps get all the boxes out and in the house but that's where it ends for him, other than the outside he does hand the lights on the house that I can't do, don't care for heights

  18. I always think you have a most beautiful and elegant home, Debbie. Wow, all the Christmas touches look amazing. I am psyching myself up to blow away the Christmas decorations' cobwebs.

  19. So pretty! You have so many beautiful decorations - and it will be wonderful to come back to a home that is already festive for the holidays!

  20. Your home and decorating are absolutely perfection! It belongs in Better Homes and Gardens or better! You are so talented, Debbie!

  21. Oh my goodness, Debbie, everything is absolutely gorgeous!!!

  22. You have a beautiful home and have decorated it perfectly. Looks like something out of a magazine. - We have outside decorations up but nothing inside yet.

  23. It all looks so lovely.
    Well done to you and the hubs ...
    Just love the look of it all.

    All the best Jan

  24. It looks so pretty. I know it's a lot of work for you....and you weren't THRILLED to do it this year....but it's really beautiful.
