Ho Ho Ho, Holiday Style Challenge 2013 Reveal!!

Ho Ho Ho, Holiday Style Challenge 2013 Reveal!!


Happy day!  I have waited a good, long while to share the space I made Christmas beautiful for the Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge!  I hope it makes you warm and fuzzy and make sure you stay tuned to the blog for the nitty gritty sparkly details, behind the scenes, and DIY’s from the space.

If you are new here and would like to subscribe, please do so by entering your email where it says “Subscribe” in the sidebar.  Or if you are a Bloglovin’ kind of gal, you can follow me by clicking here.

As always, I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments (one of my favorite things about blogging is the “conversation” – reading something, feeling inspired or feeling ___, and talking about it) so please take a moment to introduce yourself or tell me your favorite thing about the space.  I read every single comment, and I respond to every one, have you ever noticed that?

Grab your hot chocolate and marshmallows and enjoy!  (and share with your Christmas-loving friends)

    Grace, oh my to be a kid in your home this season!
    I love, Love, LOVE the back to back wreath pendant over your dining table, the little light up Christmas tree, and the two dwarf spruces–suburb! You have such great style and vision.

      Emily, thanks girl! We have had Christmas up for awhile now, and I have to say, I’ve actually really enjoyed being “forced” to have it up early. Usually, I feel like I am through with Christmas decorating so late, and then there is just a few weeks until January 1. We have been drinking hot chocolate, enjoying twinkling lights outside, and listening to Christmas music well over a month now. 🙂 It has been great!

    yay! I was so happy when this page opened up this morning. Long time follower, first time commenting. The room turned out gorg, and your Christmas styling is beautiful. Can’t wait to read all about it on your blog. I’m going to copy those two prints you have…as soon as you let us know where they came from 😉 Thanks for making me smile this morning.

    really love the art hanging on the window…such a great way to add art if you don’t have a wall. and, i’m super intrigued by that hanging wreath (not sure what to call it!)…whatever it is, it’s awesome. and i hope you tell us all how to make it, but I have no idea where to even start with something like that!

    I just can’t get over how gorgeous the addition looks – so beautiful! Can we get more photos of the ceiling at some point? It looks amazing!! So happy that all of your work and patience paid off.

    And the decorations are lovely, too. What fun!

      Erin, thank you! Yes, it is coming together for sure! I will definitely have more photos of the ceiling up once we get the fixture! It has been backordered a bajillion years, and I’m hoping it will be worth the wait in the end!

      Thanks Molly! It was fun to be so dedicated to Christmas decorating for a bit instead of putting it up “just to have it up before Christmas”, ya know what I mean? We have really enjoyed it! Thank you so much for your comment.
