Have you all been following along with all the amazing Christmas Tours ~ I've already
started a collection of ideas for next year! As promised I'm back with the rest our
Christmas tour, if you missed Part 1 our Living & Dining Room tour is here.
Today I'll be sharing our Family Room and Kitchen.
Welcome if you're coming over from Vel's @ Life & Home at 2102 she always does
a beautiful job, this year her stunning tree is one of my favs!
Next up on the tour is Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick, she is a gem and crazy talented,
she was one of the very first blogs I read, I would've never dreamed I'd be on a home tour
with her and I can't wait to pop over and see what she has for us!
Thank you to the lovely ladies hosting the 12 Days of Holiday Homes!!

As I mentioned in Part 1 of my tour, I'm drawn to more simple Christmas
decor these days and foregoing all the stuff in lieu of mostly fresh greens from
our yard and a few special items. I like to keep the colors cohesive throughout
the rooms and added a few larger blush colored ornaments to our tree.
I loved the colors in this pillow from HomeGoods and gave in to my addiction.
How could I not, look how perfect it is with the floral artwork I found thrifting a
couple years ago. I'm not sure if I ever mentioned it, but my friend and I were at
an antique store and came across a pair of huge brass lamps, and we each took one.
The oversized pinecones are from a fun vacation in Lake Tahoe, I filled my suitcase.
I added eucalyptus to the garland on on our mantel this year.
I made the fur trimmed stockings a few years ago because we needed some that were
larger ~ we love our stocking tradition! Santa always spoiled us with all kinds of fun surprises
when I was growing up, and the tradition continues.
Did you guys notice my BIG mirror was missing from my living room tour?
I (not really me!) moved it to our family room and love it.

The gorgeous Blended Bay wreath on my hood is from Lynch Creek Farms, and
I couldn't be more impressed! I'd never ordered a wreath before, only purchased them
from a big box store, but I'm sold. It's full, lush and so fresh!
I've had it on my hood for two and a half weeks and it's just as fresh as the day it was
delivered. It would be a wonderful gift!
I accidentally spritzed mine with cleaning solution instead of water one day
(actually the only day I spritzed) :( So, the bay leaves on the bottom left are a tad
wilted - 100% my fault! I felt so badly that I wasn't going to represent their gorgeous
wreath well that I tried to find replacement bay leaf sprigs - no luck, so I'm
coming clean. I'm so sorry Lynch Creek Farms, it doesn't look bad to me at all but
I was afraid you'd notice! I truly love it, thank you!
This simple corner has my grandma's vintage ornaments and the framed needlepoint
florals were done by Mr. Simple's grandma.
I like keeping a few essentials corralled on this brass tray on our counter, and added
some striped wrapping and a floral pick to a candle to give it a festive touch.
My sweet girl, Rio!
That's it for our tour friends, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.
