I am so thankful to Home Decorator’s Collection for sponsoring this house tour. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

I am so excited to bring you part 2 of our Christmas home tour!  I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite blogging buddies along with Home Decorators Collection to share lots of fun holiday home tours.  At the end of the post, 2 lucky readers will get the chance to win a $250 Home Decorators Collection gift card, so make sure you enter.  A HUGE thanks to Erin from DIY on the Cheap for putting this incredible tour together and having me join in on the fun!

For part 2 of the tour the kids and I decorated the upstairs.  If you missed part 1 of the tour you can find it right here.  You see how I worked that out, no way could I ever decorate the whole house at one time that would mean the whole house would have to be clean, not happening.
