Show & Tell Tuesday – Christmas Decor

Happy Tuesday!  I’m so excited to share some of my Christmas decorations with you today for Show & Tell Tuesday with Andrea and Erika!

I’ve always been someone who loves to see inside people’s homes all year round but especially around Christmas.. I realize that sounds creepy and maybe it is but this past weekend in Chicago, I was all about wanting to see inside those neighborhood homes!  I mean, I won’t stay… just want to come in for a quick lookaroo 🙂

  Since clearly that’s not really possible (or welcome), this is the next best thing!  I’m sharing more pieces of our home tomorrow but without further adieu…  come on in and take a look!

Welcome to our home!


Don’t mind the lights on the house.. the hubs thought all of that was a good idea.. ha!

I really love a front porch that is inviting to everyone!  Unfortunately not everyone feels that way.. a few weeks ago, I noticed someone cut a few of our net lights so that they would no longer work!  Who does that?!


I finally got around to buying another net light and still need a few more but this works for now..

I’ll be showing you the entry way, dining room and kitchen tomorrow but for today..

A little Christmas touch to our bedroom!



And a little Christmas book on my nightstand of course 🙂


And across from our bed – a little gallery… of course now that I’m looking at this picture, I’m realizing how uneven a few of those pictures are.. arg! Guess I know what I’ll be doing after work today 🙂

My cookie exchange party is Friday (can’t wait to share all those details with you!) so I wanted to make sure the whole house put us in the holiday spirit.. therefore a few Christmas touches in the guest bathroom as well!


One day I’ll figure out how to photograph our bathroom better.. and house.. one day..


And lastly for today’s tour… our living room and Christmas tree!


And a cute little puppy as well 🙂


I bought the Christmas tree topper this past weekend in Chicago at an antique store but I’m not sure I’m sold on it for the tree.. might need a little more pizzazz!


I also need to find a better tree skirt.. I can’t believe I haven’t found one I love yet!  The ones I have don’t really match so in the meantime.. the presents will do 🙂


I’ve always wanted a fireplace mantel to decorate for the holidays so until I get one.. the entertainment will have to work!


Christmas Vacation on the tv 🙂



I don’t love the tissue garland here but it’s part of the photo booth that will be at the Cookie Exchange party on Friday so there they will stay until then!

Thanks for stopping by!  I’m sharing the other rooms of our home tomorrow so make sure to check back – or subscribe to the blog if you’d like to get the emails directly to your email!

Also, if you missed it, I shared my trip to Chicago yesterday on the blog.

What does your Christmas tree look like?! I’d love to see 🙂

    Your front porch is GORGEOUS! I love everything you have there. I cannot believe someone messed with your lights – that’s so nuts! Your tree is gorgeous. I had the worst time finding a skirt I liked, too, and I actually ended up getting a galvanized collar from Michael’s – I just love it!

    I love a cozy front porch like yours! Can’t believe they would cut your lights! 😞 I had a hard time finding a tree skirt but ended up finding one at Marshalls.

    Girl all your decorations look so good! I have always wanted a fireplace mantel to decorate too, but your entertainment area looks super festive! We have our stockings hanging on ours as well. 🙂
