More Christmas Family Room

Posted by on Dec 13, 2012 in Uncategorized | 7 comments

I got to have lunch with one of my sweet readers today!  It is always so much fun to make new friends!

Our Christmas calendar continues to swirl. . .

But, we are enjoying great peace at home.

We always go with a traditional decorated tree.  We have an assortment of ornaments that we have collected over the years.  My husband is the one who actually decorates the tree every year.  This year, he set all of the ornaments out and our “elf” Jovie decorated it while we were asleep!  We have a very mischievous elf!

The presents will be under is soon. . . as soon as I take the time to sit down and wrap.

I showed some of my family room yesterday.  Mainly the mantle area. Today, I will show you the rest of the room.

I continue my love for brass.  I filled this pretty little container with fresh cedar, pines cones and fake berries.

No lampshade is safe at my house during the holidays.  I can’t resist adding a little something to them.

Another lampshade that needed a little something.

A collection of each of my “toothless” girls!

More yard sale brass finds.

Just little touches of Christmas here and there along the wall.

The pottery bunnies are my favorite.  They always live on top of this piece of furniture.  For the holidays, they got bows and fresh cedar.

The back corner of our family room got a few Christmas trees and cedar.

Our 2 favorite Christmas movies are represented here, It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street.

Check out this precious ornament that one of my sweet readers sent my way!  It is beautiful, Jane Ellen!

I LOVE Christmas!

  1. It was wonderful meeting you today!! I had a great time and every time I look at my poinsettia, I will think of you!!! Thanks for lunch too!!! I love your decorated wicker lampshade! And those pottery bunnies are adorable!! Everything looks wonderful, Melissa! – Karen

  2. Your rooms looks so festive, great ideas and showmanship. I love seeing how bloggers decorate their homes, it gives me ideas. I’ll be sitting here reading and perusing pics and have to get up to do what I’ve seen if I have the stuff to do it. If not I’ll make it if I loved it. Sure enjoyed everything you did to make your home look so great. You’re sure a talented lady. One of my special favorites is your wicker lamp shade.
    Glad you got to meet a reader today. Always fun to meet new people, especially go out to lunch. Makes me wish we still lived in KY so I could come down to meet you.

    So glad you liked the ornament. I’d forgotten which one I sent you. Finally getting on today. Went to get my flu shot finally. Sat here in my jammers cutting out reindeer from watercolor paper watching a Christmas movie on Hallmark earlier today. Got myself a shower and decided I’d better go get my shot. Don’t want to get caught, especially over the holidays, being sick would be a bummer. We’ll just be hanging at home but not fun to be sick.
    Hoping for snow,maybe if the storm hits us. The storms too often tend to go around us and dump on Fruita (town east of us)and Grand Junction. We have mountains around us all directions so it’ll hit the mtns. and miss us altogether. I love it when it snows, Tommy (our dog) has such a good time in it.

  3. Your home always looks amazing!! Everything looks beautiful! Have a great weekend!

  4. I love the toothless smiles and the yard sale brass!

  5. The toothless collection is a wonderful idea! :-)Beautiful tree!

  6. I just love to visit you. You are a great decorator! I agree with the others, the toothless pictures are adorable. Wish I would have thought of that when my boys were little.

  7. Loved your blog. Saw you at a friends blog.. Would love to have you over at mine too if you ever get a chance.. I love sharing ideas with such positive and inspirational people and blogging sisters like yourself. Hugs and have a blessed week
