It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

I haven’t had a spare moment up until today to snap a few pictures of our home decorated for Christmas.  The lighting isn’t the best today but this is the only time I will have to take a few shots before Christmas!

Although my tour is brief, I am so thankful that my Aunt Mary met me in Louisville a couple weekends ago to give me Christmas décor! I literally had a tree and a few strands of garland, so most of the stuff you’ll see was provided by her!

Without any further ado, Lucy is waiting for a kiss under the mistletoe!


Moving into the dining room.

We also finally got our gallery wall up!  We both enjoy seeing pictures from our favorite trips together displayed on the wall!

And finally, the piano room.  We display all the Christmas cards we receive on the piano.  I love, love, love looking at everyone’s Christmas card (and I can’t wait until our cards arrive so I can get them in the mail)!

Well that about wraps it up! Have a Merry, Merry Christmas!

  • It’s All About The Little Thing... So our house is old, like really old, and has had plenty of facelifts over the years (and let’s face it, updates still need to be done).

  • Craigslist Brass Console Table “... I had been searching for the prefect console table for the piano/front room.  The piano room is a difficult space because it doubles as an entryway/piano room which is strange for a Victorian not to have a grand entryway.  Our neighbors informed us that one of the previous owners of the house still lives in [...]
