a super easy diy and christmas link party here, now!


The participants of the 12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes decided it would
 be great to have YOUR Christmas Tour links show up on ALL 10 of our blogs!
That means more beautiful Christmas ideas for you, my readers, and 10 times the
 exposure for the awesome tours you've put together if you're a blogging friend! 
Link up once at the end of my post and you're on all 10 of our blogs.

Today I'm thrilled to be sharing another project over at A Blissful Nest, it's super
 easy, costs less than $2 and Rio approves! I'd love you stop by and check it out here.
  
Now it's your turn...share your Christmas Tour...

a few ideas to steal from the christmas tours


Happy Friday, friends! 
I'm loving all of the inspiration in the Christmas tours, 
and thought I'd share a few fun ideas I noticed.  

Jesse @ Scout & Nimble 
This was my original color scheme for this year, I bought a couple boxes
of ornaments, but ended up returning them because I just wasn't sure 
I could pull it off, well Jesse pulled it off beautifully!   

Love this great wagon in front of the tree - wouldn't it be fun filled
with presents? I have a red wooden one that my dad made for Detail Boy's birthday,
when he was a little guy. 

This chandelier dripping with clear ornaments is such a gorgeous statement!

Created this amazing little gem from a dead tree! 

Christine @ Bijou & Boheme
DIY Merry Sign 

Elizabeth @ Little Black Door
I LOVE this tradition - each year they cut the bottom off of their Christmas tree and
make a candle holder!! Such an great idea! 

A great tutorial on how to achieve this layered ribbon look,
it seems easy enough.

Amanda @ Dixie Delights
These Naughty (Oreos) & Nice (Apples) snack jars are too fun!  


Today is Stacey @ Steward of Design is sharing her lovely home in the
12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes. I know she's
 done some updating this past year, and I can't wait to see it decked out for the holidays!


If you haven't had a chance to enter the giveaway for a 
$25 Gift Cards to a store of your choice
you still have time - go here

Have a wonderful weekend!

my past 3 years of neighbor gifts...


Hey everyone, hope you had a fabulous weekend, we're in full holiday mode
over here, parties, shopping and enjoying our decor, that is done ~ woo hoo! It's always a
tad hectic (actually total chaos) to get it done early, but so worth it to have it
 finished and be able to enjoy it. It motivates me to invite everyone over, we had my 
parents on Sunday to watch the Broncos and I made this delicious copycat soup
that's one of my dad's favorites ~ yum, you definitely need to try it!       

My friends are always asking me to post ideas early enough that they can use
 them, and I don't have my neighbor gifts ready to go for this year, but I thought
 you might like to steal an idea from a past year. Click on the title for the detailed post.   

You guys know it's all in the presentation, so the little details are a must! :)


Each family received a block of Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip cookie dough,
ready to bake now or freeze for cookies when the mood strikes or guests appear!   



I loved the jar resembling a beehive and also included a cute dish towel,
with the warm biscuits.



The Ikea Borby lanterns are a great useful container, I tucked in a simple DIY 
personalized Ikea dish towel and a box of their cookies. 


The 12 Days of Christmas Tour of Homes continues this week and up Monday is one
 of my favorite girls, Kris @ Driven by Decor, I'm betting her decor will be classic and
 sophisticated with a dose of something fun inspired by her two sweet girls!
