our home for the holidays

I started decorating for Christmas the Monday after Thanksgiving, but I have been adding things here and there ever since. I have also been cruising the internet looking at how other people decorate for the holidays, and have had to fight back several urges to chuck everything I own and simply start from scratch :)
Here is a peek into our home for the holidays....hope you enjoy!!

Our new Little People nativity set that sits on the kid's craft table in the kitchen

The hutch in our kitchen that holds some of my brown and white tansferware collection...decked out for the holidays very simply

Here is a shot of the little glittery city I set up on the hutch in our living room....I told my husband the other night that I wish we could move there :)

Giant glittery snowflakes tied with tulle to the chandelier in the dining room

Our mantle.....newly decked out with "rainbow lights" to please my daughter

My mom's vintage egg nogg bowl sits on the kitchen island with fresh oranges

Our Christmas card bulletin board in the kitchen....the actual board has already filled up, so I have started placing the cards all around it....makes me happy every single day!!

So that's it for now....if you are stopping by to take a peek, please leave me a comment or become a "follower" so I can come visit your blog as well.

If you decide to chuck everything, I think you may have a line forming outside your door!

I love everything you posted- such a great combination of old treasures and new.

Merry, Merry!

I too noticed your hutch. Very nice. Great photos. A house that is a home. Best to you this Christmas season. I drop by every once in a while but this is the first time I left a comment.

Kristy, more than anything what pops out at me as I looked at your beautiful Christmas decorated home is your heart. You have a truly wonderful heart full of love for others as well as for Jesus. Merry Christmas!
