Christmas Open House 2011

One of my favorite things to do is
visit the inside of other people's homes...

on their BLOG!

(without even getting out of my jammies)

I especially love to see how other people 
decorate their homes for the holidays.

I'll never forget the second Christmas we lived in this house.
I opened up the boxes of decorations...
& did not even recognize the stuff that I found in there,
much less remember where I put it the year before!

A couple of years ago,
I started taking pictures of my house after I finished decorating.

Now, what used to take me a couple of weeks to accomplish
I can have pretty much done in 1-2 days.

I pretty much stuck with the same format this year,
& added a little thing here & there...

Here's my house decorated for Christmas, 2011:

These are the kind of pictures I'm getting!

I would LOVE to see your house...
please share a link in the comments so I can visit.

Wishing you a fabulous Thursday!

  1. Hi,
    I love your tree Mandy! It's gorgeous. I need some of that burlap ribbon for next year. Do you remember where you found it?

    Your home looks so warm and inviting!

    I have not posted my decorations just yet. Hoping to finish up this weekend.

  2. Your house looks so pretty! Love it!

    Here's a link to mine.

  3. Your house looks beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thank you Mandy! I really appreciate it! I got my plain paper from Lowes. It is contractor's paper by the paint section. It is really thick, but they also make packing paper that is a little thinner. You can purchase that from Walmart or Target. I plan on using it all year long as well, but with yarn instead of jute!

  5. LOVE your house!!!! I have been looking everywhere for you wall color...Burnt Copper by Porter Paints and can't find it online.. Would you be able to help me? My e-mail is

  6. Gorgeous! What are the two wall colors you have? They are both beautiful and exactly what I am looking for.

  7. Is the wall color in the dining room the same as in the room with the tall Christmas tree?


Thank You for Your Lovely Comments. I enjoy every single one of them! <3
