Good Tidings We Bring

We’re less than two weeks away from Christmas and I still haven’t seen a flake of snow in this town… but at least our home is festive. We had an ugly sweater party last year but this year we’re not hosting any Christmas shindigs. Since no one will be witnessing our decorations I decided I will just share some pictures here!

Photo quality is lacking, but the house looks best at night so I tried to capture my pictures in the evening. Now we just need to stock the house with hot cocoa and hope for some snow. (I was just told about the Holiday Home Tour– linking up now!)

We’re getting so close to Christmas (yay!) and the new year, and I’m so grateful to share my home with those I love ❤️

    Love it! I failed on decorations this year… My tree still isn’t done! Love your nutcracker collection!

      There are some bare spots around the house that I had high hopes for… but I’ll just tackle them next year 🙂 The nutcracker collection was/is unintentional- I just have so many! Haha!

    I love the sled by the front door. That brings back memories for this old gal 🙂

      Thanks Rebecca! I found it after the holidays last year for super cheap! It was just what the front porch needed. It drives me crazy how bare our porch is… hopefully we can get some chairs out there this summer!

      Thank you!! (I found it at a Cracker Barrel) That’s Enzo’s stocking! He didn’t get one his first year since he was adopted so close to Xmas, but when I saw it I knew I had to have it and he was the last one to need a stocking!

      Yes yes! I don’t know why but I just love foxes! Our wedding cake toppers were actually two little foxes 😀 I try not to overrun the house with them, but above the kitchen cabinets is decorated with foxes and we have a TON of fox ornaments. And of course Enzo’s stocking 🙂

    I’m kind of obsessed with your wood stove. I want a wood stove. I love how festive your house is!

      Thanks! I love the stove! When we were house hunting I had my heart set on a large kitchen, a specific room for laundry, a good front porch, and a fireplace. I think I actually love our little stove MORE than a fireplace 🙂

      We might have a fox problem in our home… 😀 I actually have THREE of those wine sweaters (all gifted to me). I only have one on a bottle, but one is on the tree and one is in storage. I love looking at other homes, too! My mom and I actually did a Christmas heritage home tour last Sunday and visited 10 homes! Haha!

    So cute! Love all the stuff on your mantel. I guess you call that a mantel around your furnace?

      I definitely call it a mantel! It’s a little awkward when trying to hang stockings but this year I got creative with the unused curtain rod! My winter wonderland scape on the ledge is my favorite thing to put up! And thank you!

      Thanks, Emily! I think she was hungry and I caught her sitting nicely JUST before the howling at me started 😉 The fox stocking is my favorite, but I’m too commit to matching K’s snowman stocking to switch the ownership around 🙂

      Thank you! My husband is #TeamWhiteLights so it’s the only kind I can put on the house or tree… I told him if our future children want color light someday he’s out of luck, but for now I can handle the white 😉
