Holiday decor ideas

When you first step inside my home this fun entry is what you’ll see. …….. I have a confession to make. Actually, I have to make two confessions.

Today I have a special holiday treat to share with you! We are going on another holiday home tour. It’s not my home this time! I wish it was, though.

This is a real treat with over 30 homes to see this year! Last year, within a matter of days following Christmas, I had the holiday look planned for 2017 and it all began with finding the perfect set of ornaments. Not just any ornaments either… I’m talking about a beautiful set of vintage Krebs ornaments in that perfect shade of wintery blue. Dainty, shimmery scrolling floral patterns, a band of… View Post
