Our Home

I have only posted twice since Thanksgiving, although I have been taking pictures and thinking of things to share I have not sat down here long enough to pick out the pictures, save them and put a post together.  I started decorating our home for Christmas later than usual this year.  We decided to finally bite the bullet and get some new furniture for our living room.  I had not painted or really done anything in that room since we moved here five years ago and when the bug finally hit me the end of  November I decided I needed to get the room painted before the furniture was delivered.  Here are some pictures that I took after getting the Christmas decor up.  The rest of the post will be mostly picture heavy.

First the new furniture.
His and Hers
The color is Terracotta. 
Yes, that is it, two chairs and a couch.  There is a large ottoman, but it has not came yet.  Not sure if you can see the color of the walls very well.


Hubs built this wall unit to close off the very large gaping opening between the dining area and the living room.


I love to add bells around the house at Christmas.





We had the family all together around this tree last Sunday.



I have put this tinsel tree up in the guest bedroom for the past couple of years.  I collect the little clip on birds to attach to it along with some vintage and vintage look ornaments. It is sitting in an old granite wash pan.

Hubs has a small chunky tree that he puts up in his den that he decorates with woodland animals and red lights.  The grands like to see how many animals they can find on it.

And the last item but the  first that comes out of the Christmas boxes every year is the manger that hubs built for me the first year we were married.  I am afraid it is not a very good picture this year.


I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and I wish you all a wonderful New Year from our home in the woods!

I love all of your beautiful Christmas decor! That tree in the bucket is my favorite! New furniture is always fun and it looks so comfy!

I haven't been blogging much either...so many issues with blogger, but I'm hoping to get going again. I'd rather look at everyone else's rather than post on my own!!!

Have a wonderful New Year!!!

I love that your husband puts up a tree and its subject. :) And your tinsel tree is fabulous. I have a lot of collected birds too but didn't put them out this year. I wish you and your family a very happy New Year. xo

I love your rooster lamp. I have one that was my mom's many, many years ago when I was a kid. The shade is much too big and I needed to figure out what type to purchase so you've given me a good idea.
