A Touch of Christmas

The Holiday Season is in full swing!  After putting up the 20 foot tree, I decided to scale back everywhere else.  I did not put up the Buckeye Tree this year, I did not cover every inch of free space with baubles and pine.  Instead, we took the simple approach and put “touches” of Christmas throughout the house.

Welcome.  My daughter’s ice skates hang from a fresh wreath on the front door.

An oversized urn mixed with fresh and faux greenery greets you.

The dining room has just enough greenery to smell divine.

Simple touches were made to the mantel.

Simple vignettes pop up all around the house.

Shelving in the kitchen…just a touch of red.

Then there is the beast of a tree that graces the living room.  Nothing simple here!

I am doing everything I can to stay ahead, I will even settle for “not behind” this season.  So, I am calling the house decorated and moving on to the next task.

There are many Holiday Linky Parties happening in Blogland.  If you need inspiration, check out a few that I am linking up with.

Don’t Forget, there is still time to enter the $50 GIVEAWAY here.

Thanks for stopping!  Have a great day,

XO-
