Good Friday morning to you!  This week has been insanely busy…am sure you are all feeling the holiday crunch too. I am so happy I put this post together in advance otherwise it would never have happened. I want to announce the winner of the soap dish and monogrammed guest towels……congratulations goes to-
Good morning, Tina. It is a delight to see all of your Christmas decor. Yup, the tree does belong right where it is. That is not to say you can’t have more than one tree!!!!:):) I love your nutcracker collection! Everything looks beautiful nd I love the secretary in the dining room. Speaking of which, I had made a list of DEFINITES I wanted for a new house. The first one was a BIGGER dining room as we entertain alot. Well, our new dining room is actually smaller:( Oh well, we make it work. As far as what I would like from your shop: ANY of the blue and white porcelain jars!!!!!!!!!!!! I adore them. Wishing you GOOD SHOPPING and a blessed Christmas. XO, Pinky

Time for round 2! Given the number of pictures I received, there should really be a round 3, 4 AND 5! When you are done with this post in a few hours you will totally agree! I had to post this all together as we are simply running out of days till Christmas. The good thing is it’s not going anywhere, so you will be able to come back here and refer to this post however many times you like. I think I could have had a best seller in the making……..Think you can handle even more beauty from my readers?
 I was astounded to see how many pictures I got and thrilled about it. This is so inspirational and you know I will be referring back to these posts next year too! Just love it all….and cannot thank you enough for taking the time to send me these beautiful glimpses into your spectacular homes. So much fun to see all the beauty, humor and over the top cuteness (thanks to the pooches)!

Such creativity!!!!

Are you dizzy yet from all the Christmas fabulousness? Love when I see the pooches getting in on the holiday spirit, and these are soo cute! If this post won’t get you into the holiday swing of things..can’t imagine what will! I mean this is some serious Christmas inspiration! I did receive some pictures after this post was completed on Tuesday, and since I scheduled this post to post at a certain time I was unable to add/change anything and apologize if your picture was not able to be included (though I do think I managed to get nearly all), but I assure you I got great joy from looking over each and every one of them! If you missed my holiday wrap up on my own home, click here.

Thank you so much everyone for contributing to yet another spectacular round of readers homes! I loved this and will absolutely make it a tradition. I hope all who stopped by enjoyed seeing all the different takes on holiday decorating. Wishing everyone a wonderful day and good luck getting through these last few days until Christmas…..officially in my book known as “The Christmas crunch”…….ho ho ho!

So many lovely decorations, Tina, and lovely homes too. My favorites are the pooches, especially the Boston Terrier on the staircase with a red bow around his/her neck, Kathysue and her husband kissing in Paris and — of course — my own. My children arrive next week from far and wide, so that is all I need to be in the Christmas spirit. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family as well.

Hi Tina. I am truly astounded by the beauty and creativity in these pictures. I so hope you do this again next year.

Love you and your always positive blog.

What a lot of goodness all in one place! This was a visual feast, it is beyond delightful to look at how so many people decorate for the season. I felt so bad about the broken gingerbread house, and wondered if the darling pooch was involved….? It might have looked so good he had to have a taste, it looked that way to me.

Thank you for compiling such a grand album of Christmas decor! I hope your Christmas is relaxing and filled with fun Tina!

Lots of Christmas fabulousness going on here Tina! My favorites were the tree with the vintage ornaments, the apothecary jars filled with marsh mellows, the elegant gold table arrangement, and the burlap/linen/natural stockings adorned with a beautiful white snowflake. Thanks for sharing!

I was so disappointed my mad hatter and red queen trees didn’t make the cut. It was the popcorn ceiling in the background–wasn’t it!!

zanetastyle on

Wow! How beautiful and inviting all these are! It is so special to peek into so many people’s homes and feels like I have just been to many parties with eggnog((:

Loving you own house decor Tina in your previous post, so stylish and magically enchanting like you! Your Xmas tree occupies the perfect spot in the hallway next to dining room and living room, well thought through, hats down. The Chair in your powder room is great … I am looking for a nice stool for our powder room as it feels like it should have some seating, well yours even more so… It is practicaly a small sitting room with that wallpaper and georgeous chandellier …(:

Thank you for your note, I would agree with you and give up anything to be able to keep my little boy “little” just a bit longer as it seems to go by way too fast…

I wish you and your family the most amazing and peaceful christmas and prosperous healthy 2013!

I’ll be offline until the first of the year but the hopefully life will return to normal and blogging (and commenting) will be back too! πŸ™‚

Thanks to members, who contributes to these amazing blog posts. Guys! from where you get these amazingly simple yet creative ideas. I become fan of yours.

Kim on

Enjoyed looking at these posts again and am quickly getting geared up for Christmas decor again! I hope you do another post like this and am wondering if it would be possible to link to blogs of those who have them. I would love to see more traditional blogs since so many decorating blogs, while fun and lovely to look at, are the newer, minimalist decor styles. Keep up the good work!
