Open House

OK, so Nester and several others have been doing a holiday open house post. I thought I'd post a few pics of my Holiday decor... Because I'm lazy and I have strep (along with both of the girls) I'm not going to link up to their posts, but click on my link-y bar thingy and go poke around... You'll find loads of amazing pictures...

I wasn't "feelin" it this year... so my Christmas decor is WAY scaled back. I guess it's the whole "New House needs real decor not just Christmas decor" thing... I'm just pretty overwhelmed... But come the new year, when some of my new curtains get here, WATCH OUT... I've got a breakfast room make-over, stair decor, library/office, and dining room postings coming soon!

This year I did different shades of green/gold/ivory on the tree and front. It's really quite pretty... Everything from evergreen to lime.

This is my favorite Christmas decoration of all. It's a Mark Roberts Nativity set that I bought one year for 1/2 price (and still caused a small stroke in my husband...) I love it. From the silk fabrics to the beading. Love. It.

Hopefully the "Boring Beige" colored walls in the Dining room didn't make you gasp with disgust... Trust me, CHANGE is coming. What's the saying... Come Hell or High Water... yep, change is coming...
