"Holiday House Tour: Part 1"


Is it just me or has the week flown by?  Jeez!  I'm just dropping in to share a little of my holiday decor with you.  This year, with so much going on, I decided to scale things back.  It seems that as time goes by, I'm preferring less and less cluttering up my space and my mind. I literally only took out about half of my Christmas decor this year and I really like how things have shaped up.  I should probably let go of ALL of those holiday items that I'm storing all year long that I'm less than enthusiastic about.  Apparently I'm not the only one.  Check out Emily's blog post on the same subject.

In the living room, besides the tree, I only included my favorite decorations. 

One of my favorite new purchases was this 12 Days of Christmas pillow I picked up at a Salvage Center (originally from Target) while I was at home for Thanksgiving.  I was so determined to get it home that I actually destuffed it so that it would fit in my carry-on bag.  I then replaced the stuffing with a down insert.  I really love it.  It's subtle, but festive at the same time. 

I felt that the new black door also needed a little something so I added a thrifted french horn that I picked up last year.  A simple red ribbon strikes just the right chord.  Like my new entry runner?  I scored that baby for less than $20 during a Rugs USA clearance sale.  

I picked up a great linen and felt leaf wreath at the ReStore on the day we filmed the news segment.  It makes the perfect natural holiday addition to my china cabinet.

The ReStore also had these yarn balls.  I wasn't sure what they were, but I liked the look of them.
Apparently I have a slight obsession with brass these days.  I couldn't resist these vintage brass candlestick holders. 
A few Christmas trees and only my favorite holiday décor seem to be just enough this year.
More to come....

I love your festive touches! I'm going with the less is more approach this year too. Because the more you put up the more you have to take down and taking it all down isn't nearly as fun :)
