Details on our Christmas Living Room

First of all, I want to THANK YOU for all the fabulous comments and reactions you've given me when I share with your our HOME TOUR !

At this time of year, when we give gifts to the people who have made a difference in our lives, I truly wish I could afford to give each and everyone of you one, since your gift of appreciation has meant so much to me not just for last week, but for the past years we've been cheering on each other

Anyway, today, I want to share with you some aspects of the home tour that I wasn't able to do so  the last time because there is just too many things to talk about.

 So allow me to share the other shots and vignettes  I have,   with you!

I love how this shot just shows almost everything I love about our living room
I got the 2 red pillow covers from IKEA, the 2 plaid ones are scored from Dillard's (Their bed pillows) & the grey chalkboard like one in the middle is from RLH, a score from Homegoods years and years ago!

You saw the vignette I had above the piano before. This one is just a close up of all the things in there including the votives inside these tin houses I scored from TARGET years ago. 

Hanging the stockings here by the stairs made sense to me, because of what's on the mantel.

I also added pretty plaid bows I made for the mirrors

Another view from above
I placed some of my beaded snowflake ornaments again on our orb chandelier by the stairs. I just love the sparkle it gives the light!

Our media Center with a lot of Christmas tree vignettes up above
Photos with Santa and other photos of the kids went here too!

I shared with you the sitting area the last time...

... but I wanted to show you my Table vignette here.

Over at the mantel, it was jam-packed with my beloved Nativity...

Now you know why the socks couldn't go here. ;-

As for out tree, I mentioned that I switched to LED lights this year for safety reasons and also I wanted the gum-drop look of this particular lights.

Some of the sentimental ornaments that went on our tree
The Santa foam ornament and other clothespin foam ornaments are the most special for me since my son Aidan made most of them for me!!! I don't think I can ever throw them away at all -ever!

How are things on your end? I know your probably all decked out too since it's only a couple more days until Christmas! Please don't forget to visit the other house tours that are still going on now AND TO JOIN THE LINK PARTY ON DEC. 16!!!
