Merry Christmas & Welcome to our home!  I’m stop #25 on Jenn Rizzo’s holiday house walk, but I’m also linking up with Nester for her holiday house walk, too!

Between you and me house 25

It has been so fun participating in Jenn Rizzo’s holiday house walks over the last several years. Each year it has grown, and this year is the biggest it has ever been with 33 bloggers joining in on the fun!  If you haven’t seen all the other homes on the tour, you can visit Jenn’s blog and start from the beginning!

I hope you’re visiting me from Jenna over at SAS Interiors. Her home is all decked out with no detail spared!

I’m glad you’re here, and I hope your Christmas season is filled to the brim with love, joy, and peace, but most of all, I pray you are filled with Hope deep down in those places in your heart that might need it.

Now…pour yourself a nice, big cup of something you love and walk with me…

 I love to sprinkle just a little Christmas cheer in every room!  Most everything has been collected over time, but our beautiful wreaths and garland are new to us this year from Balsam Hill.  They look so real!!!  I have to tell you that not only are their products amazing, but their customer service is remarkable!  If you need some Christmas tree decorating ideas, you can visit their site. See our snowman tree from last year!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

The next stop on the holiday house tour is Sarah’s house over at The Yellow Cape Cod

Donna - Love your decorating. I always enjoy your home and blog.

Dagmar Obert - Evergreens everywhere in such a judicious way throughout your home. I also appreciated your knack for hanging wreaths of different sizes and unique places like the back of chairs. Balsam Hill foliage does look so real.

Sneak preview of Christmas with Balsam Hill

I try really hard not to think about Christmas before Thanksgiving. Okay. Backup. That’s a lie.
I try really hard not to decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving.

That being said, I ordered a few things from Balsam Hill and I couldn’t let them stay all locked up in their boxes for another six weeks. I thought I’d show you just one tiny picture of my new mini-wreath in our room.

Balsam Hill mini-wreath

Isn’t it darling?! I ordered two of them. And a huge wreath for our front door. And an extra-long garland for the mantle or the door or somewhere. See, I can’t even tell you where the garland will go because I’m trying really hard not to think about Christmas before Thanksgiving.

This was my first time ordering from Balsam Hill, and I loved working with them. If you have time, request a catalog from them for all kinds of Christmas inspiration.

I’ll be back in early December to show you where everything ends up. I’m joining Jennifer Rizzo’s Christmas tour of homes again this year!

Lynda - Such a pretty little wreath, and I really love that sign in your room! That is one that I believe I will be needing! All very pretty.

Brooke - I can’t wait for the parade of homes!!! No doubt yours will be gorgeous! :) xo- Brooke

Lisa - So lovely…. Love all your signs around your home!! Simply perfect!!

Simple Thanksgiving Tablescape

Have you met Bre from Rooms for Rent? She is a creative genius, and I can honestly say that when I find time to read blogs these days, I love popping over and getting lost in her virtual home with a good cup of coffee!

She has spent this whole week giving some fabulous thanksgiving tablescape ideas. You can see Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4.
Today is the day she invited me and several others to join her in showing our thanksgiving tables, so be sure to head over to get links to all the other blogs for more inspiration!

If you’re like me, you like less words and more pictures, so I’ll put a sock in it and get busy showing you our dining room! I kept it simple and used what I had at the house. I spent $6 on the decorative cabbage, which I’ll plant outside as soon as we finish our Thanksgiving meal.
Just kidding. I’ll wait til everyone leaves.

Here’s a quick glance at the other side of our dining room: We recently built these shelves with some reclaimed wood. I kept my fall decor simple with pumpkins and my favorite fall print and some beautiful cotton, picked fresh from the fields near our house!

{2014} CHRISTMAS signs in the shop

I can’t believe I’m advertising Christmas signs before I light my first fall candle in the house, but I am.

We’re excited again to be partnering with several other bloggers this season, who will show off their favorite Christmas signs in their homes for us, so stay tuned for those in the next few weeks. They’ll be offering coupons for you to use in the shop, and a couple of them will be offering a give away.

Visit our shop to order your favorite sign of the season…and find me on Instagram to find out about give-aways and coupons for Christmas orders in our shop!

NEW SIGNS::

The Weary World REJOICES

MaKaela - I am a huge Christmas fan to begin with, but with us expecting our third baby in December, the first sign and fourth from the bottom nearly make me cry. There will be weary hearts rejoicing in our home and we will need a night divine. I hope to purchase one of your signs very soon! Loving them!

Rebecca W - I would be happy to show off one of your signs for you if you need :) They are beautiful.

Lemonade Makin Mama - Oh girl I just cherish my sweet sign. I was just thinking about where I want to hang it up this year… Ha!!

Lisa - These are my absolute favorite signs!!! Thinking I may just need one for my new mantel!!!

Andrea - I love your signs and hope to get one this year. I also wanted to say I miss your blog. I know you are living the life God intended but I miss you none the less.

Jenni - Your signs are just beautiful! So happy to have just discovered your shop and blog via Instagram as I am in the uk and have spotted your scripture signs on other blogs and wondered where I could find them! Do you ship internationally? God bless and thank you for creating such gorgeous art which blesses others so richly!

laura@top this top that - love the new sign. are you and andy going to be at country living this year

Tara - We only ship to Canada…the shipping elsewhere is unbelievably expensive.
Thanks for your kind words!

Tara - Thank you so much for your kindness. :)

Sam - Your signs are gorgeous and I would absolutely love to buy one but I’m in the UK and the price of postage would probably be more than the sign! Have you ever sent one to the UK? Do you have a rough idea of cost? Thanks x

Colleen Wilkins - Stunning, Beautiful….
