Friday Favorites~A Home Tour Round-up!

Who else is glad it’s Friday? We’ve got our staff Christmas party tonight, and I’m looking forward to having a wonderful meal with dear friends. I got my nails painted red this morning, and I stretched myself and got a fun leopard blouse to wear.  Some of the younger gals on staff at the church even talked all of us old ladies into wearing fake eye lashes.  Lots of “firsts” for me in one night… red nails, fake lashes, or leopard print wouldn’t be a “go-to look” for me, ever.  This will either work out just fine or be an EPIC fail.  Stay tuned!

Today is the last day of Jennifer Rizzo’s “Deck the Halls” holiday house walk. She featured 32 homes from bloggers all over the United States, and I can honestly say that almost every single style ever created under the sun has been showcased. I’m sure you’re like me and found more inspiration than you knew what to do with for one Christmas season!

I thought I’d do a round-up of some of my favorite rooms or vignettes from the week. What were some of your favorites?

Melaine’s dining room is always an absolute favorite of mine!

 

Beth paired one of our Christmas signs with those DIY stars that she created.  I could look at this one picture all day long.  Check out that beautiful tree in the background trying to steal the show.

Melissa made that dreamy lamp. I’ll take two, please. And, lets just talk about how awesome it is that she didn’t put the art right over the chest. I love it.

I’m digging candles in votives this year, and Paige schooled me on how to do it beautifully. Her ENTIRE house makes me drool. And who doesn’t love Brinkley? He’s the most loved dog in blog land.

I want to curl up in Jeanne

I want to curl up in Jeanne’s big comfy chair and have coffee with her. You don’t think that’ll freak her out, do you?

 

Anybody else painting their nails red and wearing fake lashes and leopard print this weekend?
Come on…join in the conversation!

What are your weekend plans?

paige - hilarious…my nails are always grey or black or navy…and i JUST asked caroline…hmmmm, how about i have them done in red for the next two weeks?
who says WE don’t know how to have fun!

Lori H - We need some photos of you on this adventurous evening! My fingernails are so short that I am afraid of what they would look like in red. My toenails alternate between a summer red and a winter red. Tonight, we have a couple of friends coming over to test out a champagne punch recipe that I might make for our big Christmas party on the 14th. They haven’t seen Love Actually so we are going to watch that too! Hoping that Buffalo Chicken Chili goes with the punch, but I imagine we won’t care :) Tomorrow is our day to get outdoor things done before the looming ice storm on Sunday. Have fun tonight!

Karli - New reader here! Love your blog and so happy I found you through the holiday tour. We have a holiday party this weekend too. I was just thinking of painting my nails red and I may wear my leopard scarf too. I’m sure you’ll look beautiful!

Lemonade Makin' Mama - Okay missy I better see an instagram of those fake eyelashes and leopard. You cute THING!

I wanted to just comment back to you on every single picture and comment you left. I was nodding my head and going Oh my goodness, YES to these. You totally need that hey y’all sign. Get it! And the star with your sign? Total genius. Love that you share these with us… such a sweet generous blogger you are.

Juli Elgin - I loved the homes tour and was amazed at how many of your signs I saw. Almost every home had at least one.

Sharon - I’m glad I found your blog! So funny about the firsts being epic. Please post one picture of party. Too much fun!
Happy Holidays,
Sharon
