Holiday Home Tour

This was the "first" version of the white tree.....
(not sure if you will notice the changes)
AND the second (not to say final as we still have 12 days before christmas so I proceed with my disclaimer: christmas decor subject to change at any moment!!)

I added more ornaments.....I started this holiday season with "simple" decorating BUT I really am a more is more girl at heart! Last weekend at the library I checked out every December Home Decor issue they had (ya know, in case I missed something) and I did! While browsing through BHG, there was one home that was featured and her theme was simple also (although that's every year for her) and she had what I have found to be the most brilliant idea ever!

Tying together groups of smaller ornaments with ribbon (that would other wise get lost in the tree) and uses them as 'fillers'. L O V E! My tree looks a lil fuller now!!!

Here's a cutie lil ornament that I picked up this year.......
And another grouping ( I ♥ the chocolate brown polka dot ribbon)
The book shelf beside the tree....
A shot of the newly painted mantle wall (WITH the flash)
And WithOUT the flash....much more romantic this way! I just hung the mirror over the weekend (prior to the mirror there was a vintage white washed window frame resting on the mantle which prohibited all the extras that are on there now!!). As I look at this picture I am realizing this looks more formal - I like the casual better.....hmmm, we'll see what to do after the holidays!
The SIMPLEST, most elegant item all season! (I won't tell you that it's taken me 3 weeks to put the pinecones and lights in there - pitiful isn't it?!?! Sometimes the simplest tasks take us the longest).
A lil grouping on the kitchen table....(I thought about covering the picture up on the candle with some burlap -which would make the shade coordinate better BUT I LOVED the black and white picture on the candle).
Ok, I'm linking up to the Nester's Christmas Tour Of Homes here and I CAN'T WAIT to see all of your homes!

Your decorations look so pretty. I love the wreath on your mantel.
