I am a little slow at getting my house all decorated for Christmas..... We took a family vacation to Disneyland the first week of December and I can't seem to catch all the way up!
But I am happy to say my house is finally all decorated for Christmas.
Welcome to my Christmas tour lets start in my entry way.
We don't have a mantle and we have never had matching stockings. Until now!
I decided it was time to retire the mis matched Disney character stocking and find a place to hang some new ones.
This shelf has been hanging out in my garage for the last few years it was black and broken, I painted it, added some beadboard and hooks and now it is the perfect spot for stockings.
I made these stockings out of linen. I added some lace and ribbon to them for bit of elegance.
I love to add vintage elements to my decor whenever I can. This girl was my husbands grandmothers and I just love her. She always finds a spot every year.
In my kitchen I added some fresh cedar with red ornaments to my shelves.
I created this fun centerpiece for our table.
I am in love with nutcrackers and pom poms this year!
Notice anything wrong with the above picture?
Oh that is right, my star is falling off my tree...oops!
I made this box for my tres to sit in this year. A tree skirt has need on my list for years now and I just can't talk myself into making one, I am feeling good I made stockings. So I decided to make a box instead. I love how it turned out!
I added a book page garland and tucked a few strands of burlap in for a more rustic look. I bet you wouldn't guess almost all my ornaments are from the dollar store. With the exception of the big red ornaments and the stars, but I bought those on clearance!
I saved the best for last. My Nativity is my favorite decoration of all. My husband surprised me one year with the full set and I always get excited when we start pulling them out of the box. It is a reminder that Christ is the reason for the season!
Thank you for visiting!! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!!

Brooke, your home is just beautiful!! All of it! And of course the Nativity Scene. I'm still looking for one and I really like yours. I got a late start to decorating too. Life got very busy so I'm keeping it very simple this year. Merry Christmas to you and your family! God Bless You! Diane

It's all very beautiful Brooke - I love the Joy sign and stockings in your entry! I like how you've strung a banner around your Christmas Tree too.

Beautiful decorations! I love your stockings you made from linen, very pretty. The tree is gorgeous - makes me want to decorate mine more. I know what you mean about catching up when you go out of town between Thanksgiving and Christmas - we did that last year and I felt the same way - kind of glad we stayed home this year.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
