Christmas Home Tour Part 2


Of course, we are mindful of those who are suffering unbearably this Christmas after the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on Dec. 14, 2012 and our prayers continue to be that God would comfort and strengthen them as they mourn the loss of their loved ones and the life that they knew.


Though our hearts are heavy and sadness prevails, we try to carry on with our Christmas preparations and with that in mind, I am posting Part 2 of my Christmas Home Tour.  Perhaps, we can focus on a brighter tomorrow with a few glances at some sparkle and shine.






 Kitchen Island Christmas Display 

 Apothecary jars and vase filled with faux snow with pine cone/berry/pine picks

 Kitchen shelf over large clock decorated for Christmas



 
 Bathroom gets some silver "frostiness" for Christmas

Silver "disco" type ornaments, faux greenery and brown shredded paper in apothecary jar .
 
Black metal "basket" on counter holds hand towels, silver birdie, silver pick and pine cone shaped soap.


Downstairs, in our TV Room, I've decorated using white and teal as the main colours which compliment the teal coloured accent wall.
 
 It is a small room but that makes it especially cozy  for watching all our favourite Christmas movies this time of year.
 
 The end table gets a festive touch with some sparkly gold centered faux white florals with teal coloured glittered berry sprigs.
 
 Coffee table display is created using large glass hurricane filled with faux snow, teal ornaments, and white snowflakes around a stemmed candle holder.  This is set inside a faux green/white wreath.
 
 Vintage skis, ski pictures of local skiers from bygone days and a large snowflake adorn the wall over the TV.
 
 I hope you have enjoyed this year's Christmas Home Tour (if you missed Part 1, click here).
 Best wishes for a blessed and meaningful Christmas season filled with joy and peace.

Such fun to catch a glimpse of your home decorated for Christmas! I especially love the apothecary jars and pinned a couple of your photos to my Christmas Pinterest board. Love the shredded paper and the faux snow!

What a beautiful home you've created. I especially like the metal basket in the bathroom. Have a Merry Christmas, Dani
