Holiday House walk 2013 ~Christmas Home Tour~
I absolutely love this season and am so honored to be included in Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk 2013! To be in the company of such creative bloggers is truly a blessing!
If you were at my front door I would invite you in for a cup of tea or a glass of vino, so hurry, grab a cup of your favorite beverage and get cozy!
If you are visiting from the very talented My Sweet Savannah, welcome, I am so glad you are here!
As you first walk into our home you will most likely be greeted by 2 little dogs, three handsome boys, lots of noise and laughter mixed in with a whole lot of love…oh and our stair banister which leads you directly into our dinning room.
I found these cute bins at Ikea a few months back and embellished them with some silver letters that spell out “JOY”. Other then a few stockings and the containers, everything was pulled out of the attic. Many of the items were handmade by me like the cute little snow puffs on the table.
See that little door under the stairs? My hubby has been working hard on using up our leftover stone from 8 years ago in the wine closet.
Just a little peak for now, promise to give you a tour sometime soon.
The dinning room flows right into the family room where we spend most of our time.
Yes, the dogs follow me everywhere I go
This was the first time I have ever decorated a fake Christmas tree and let me tell you a little secret, I loved it! Balsam Hill has some of the most amazing tree’s ever that look incredibly real! I kept with the white and silver theme to give it a touch of elegance.
The boys still want a real one so I promised them a mini tree upstairs and they can decorate it however their sweet hearts desire!
I hope you will come back for a tour of the upstairs next week. For now I”ll leave you with a peak into our master bedroom and the front of the house.
Next stop in the tour is the very talented and sweet Ella Claire who just welcomed the most beautiful baby boy to their family!
Thank you so much for taking a little time out of your day and stopping in, I greatly appreciate it!
You can find more of my crafts and decor for Christmas here and part II of our Christmas home your here.

I’ve been following you for a long time and you never disappoint with your decorating, just beautiful love the tree, mine is silver and a little bit white with a little black.
Your little sweetie is exactly like my daughter’s, Chloe is her name, what is hers? I’m thinking of getting one or a Yorkie when warmer weather is here.
Have a wonderful Christmas with your family.
I love your home at Christmas and especially all the white decorations on your tree!
Now I don’t know if it’s too late, but as I was researching kitchens for my own very small remodelling, I found pictures of corner cabinets that opened with two doors opening in the middle of the cabinet and I thought maybe it would be an idea for you. Personally, I thought it changed the look of the cabinet tremendously with a simple easy idea.
I love your holiday table! One of my favorites that I’ve seen this season for sure! Thanks for sharing a peek into your home.
You are so sweet Corey, thank yo so much
Beautiful tour Kristin! I always enjoy seeing your home! Happy Holidays to you & your family:).
Now I know what you have been using your Excel lessons for, to do your budget for Christmas! Very beautiful, Kristin. Though, I wonder how long it will last with three kids and a dog!
Your home is so warm and cozy Kristin! Love your table setting – what time shall I be there – I’ll bring the Pinot!
What a gorgeous holiday home tour!!
