By now, you’ve seen most of my house, all decorated for Christmas…
The bedrooms, dressing room, and bathrooms only get a few touches of Christmas, so they really don’t need their own post.
But the dining room…now the dining room is another story.
For a couple of years now, I’ve wanted to put a (faux) Christmas tree in there.
I’ve had the perfect plan.
I’d collected ornaments from Goodwill and garage sales.
I’d picked up a Christmas tree from a friend who had decided to give it away.
But last year, sadly, I was just too sick to get all my decorations up, and that tree stayed in the basement.
But this year…
This year is different.
Without further ado, take a look at my dining room Christmas. A moment of silence to appreciate the beauty…
I could stand here and look at it all day. Especially from this view…
Today brings us to my Front Porch.
Let me explain, before you see the photos, this is the area where most everything gets put when we don’t know where else to put it.
Well…and it holds all the items that I find that I want to do a project with…that’s where it really gets messy.
So today’s post is real…like really real.
Crazy messy, wildly overflowing, perfectly imperfect real. Read more
Welcome to my kitchen!
Remember when I told you my whole house changes over for Christmas?
Yes, even the kitchen.
There are a couple special pieces in my kitchen…
The “Our Father” sampler that you see is one that my Mom made when she was young. I absolutely love it and had Tim frame it with wood from an old door we found! Read more
My parents were known for their outside Christmas decorations. They’d have people come from all over and stop on the highway to take pictures. We used to laugh because they kept expanding them…I remember telling them ‘you can’t decorate their whole 40 acres!’. They’d light up every tree and they lit up the entire house. Then they started adding the big plastic Christmas decorations outside. And adding…and adding…and adding.
Northern Minnesota Weather Report:
Cloudy with a slight chance of snow.
With only a couple of inches on the ground, the locals are disappointed and starting to grumble.
There’s open water on some of the lakes, Ice Fishermen can’t fish, Skiers can’t ski, Sled Dogs can’t pull their sleds. Even some of us that aren’t outdoor sports people are missing the snow! It’s hard to believe it’s mid-December and we don’t have at least 2 feet of snow!
However, it hasn’t stopped me from indoor activities…on to the Mudroom Decorations! Read more
