Real Homes, Real Holiday Inspiration

One of the things I love about blog-reading in December is getting a glimpse into people's homes all done up for the holidays. I love the variety, creativity and tradition involved. And I love seeing the different ways people handle kids plus decorations.

So I thought I'd share some of the fresh ideas and images I gathered throughout my blog wanderings this month.

Maybe you'll bookmark this post and reference it next year as you finish your Thanksgiving dinner and start day dreaming about glitter and snow.

Amanda of Joy Ever After was dreaming of a White (and green!) Christmas.

Instead of a Christmas tree, Megan of Not Martha made a tree mobile this year.

Stephanie of Nie Nie Dialogues put angel wings on her chairs and decorated two flocked trees.

Hilary of Wee Wonderfuls made a new tree skirt with Alexander Henry fabric.

Alyson of Unruly Things hung lots of different animal ornaments.

Autumn of Design*Dump used nuts and crystals in her garland. Gorgeous!

Laura of The Queso pulled out here glue gun and made this fabulous wreath.

And Susan of Freshly Picked made me laugh with this post. Her daughter did a little tree-re-decorating.

I hope you enjoyed those links, and I hope your own home feels festive and warm. Happy Holidays!

kisses,
Gabrielle
