Gettin’ My Holiday Groove On
Can I just say something before sharing the latest round of holiday shots? I’m worn out! I’ve never been exposed to so much talent and inspiration until I discovered blogland … and while I want to try all the latest projects I see … I just can’t keep up! I had plans for embroidered ornaments, burlap stockings, moss Christmas trees and more. But it’s just not gonna happen, seeing that Christmas is less than a week away. But you know what? I’m okay with that because I still get to enjoy seeing everyone else’s handiwork while hopping from one blog to another. So here’s a little bit of my holiday groove, sans all those projects I had on the to-do list.
Just wish it had one of those impressive railings. Sigh.

There was a lot of rose-colored carpet in this room, too.

I love love your house! Love the stairway with the window, the painted steps and floors and the wall colour is gorgeous! You have done a beautiful job in decorating your home. Your tree is beautiful too. I know what you mean by all the ideas in blogland for decorating. I didn’t do anything either, just stuck with what I have and know. LOL Merry Christmas Jennifer! Blessings, Pamela
What a lovely house! I especially like your dining room…the light fixture is fantastic!!
Your home is gorgeous – I love your painted stairs and flooring! And I’m a bit worn out from blogging as well – time to party (at real live parties)!
Your beautiful home looks so cozy and loved. Trixie is a cutie pie too.
Hi Jennifer… Don’t worry about not getting it all done. At least YOU have a tree up! A very PRETTY tree!
I just barely got the front courtyard decorated and don’t know if I will get the pictures up in time… AND the candies are still waiting to get made and mailed?! Who am I kidding!
I am like you as far as enjoying everyone else’s Christmas decorations. At least there will me no having to pack it all back up. HA!

What a beautifully decorated home you have!! Simply lovely.
Your house looks gorgeous! Love the floors and the staircase. And, of course, your decorations!
What beautiful Christmas decor! You have such a cute house… I love it!

Just stumbled upon your blog. Your house is beautiful. Enjoyed myself! Kathy
That silly Trixie! When I am going through pictures for a blog post, I will often be surprised to see one or more of the cats in a picture! It’s a good thing….
Your home is lovely. Your floors are gorgeous – great patina. I, too, ripped up all my rose colored carpet in a previous house – hallway, steps, living room. I’d start on it after my daughter was in bed, and would just keep going….
Great wall color – the lacecap and others, and your swags, tubs, trees are all terrific.
Nice house! I just followed you w/GFC from the MAde in a Day Tuesday hop. Hope you follow back 🙂
Very pretty house and beautifully decorated for the holidays! I love that window and staircase, too – Not to mention your adorable furbaby! 🙂 And the job you did on your floors is fabulous!
Your home is so lovely; the window is the sweetest by your stairs. Pretty garlands–I didn’t do that this year and wished I had. Thank you for the tour; I loved it.
Cute blog! I’m now a follower from the Made in a Day Hop! I hope you will stop by Swanky Baby and follow us too!
I love the touches of Christmas all through the house. Your home provided the perfect backdrop for your festive Christmas decor. I love the colors in your home and that wood floor is amazing! Sharon
I love your style!!! And the staircase!!! It is exactly like my grandma’s old farmhouse….I remember being scared to go up and down as a child because it was open on the one side!!! And I prefer the painted wood steps and floors….the newel post is just perfect….love the wall color…..Merry Christmas…cleo
Your home is so beautiful. i especially love your floors. Doylene
Hi Jennifer, thanks for your lovely comment! I’m following you now too 🙂 xo Kirsty
Yes, I too feel over whelmed from so much beautiful Christmas decor from blogger friends and now you’re another one because your home looks gorgeous, you do not need to admire much. I love your tree with the galvanized bucket filled with presents, it looks great! You have a terrific space if you ever wnat to add a pretty railing, but in the meantime, it is so cozy like this. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year. Just dropped from Open House.
Your home is so lovely, Jennifer! I love all the architectural detail and the beautiful paint colors you have chosen! Thanks so much for stopping by and following…I am a new follower, too!
Your home is LOVELY! I’ve run up and down the pictures a few times now! It’s all just gorgeous!!! Thanks for sharing!
XO, Aimee from ItsOverflowing.com
The blue walls are so pretty – especially with the gold frames. So many pretty details. And yes, blog reading can be exhausting…in a good way 🙂 Thank you for joining the party!
Yep! You got your groove on and it looks great. love the candles going up the stairs. Have a great Christmas.
Your home is so pretty and festive!
Thank you for sharing at Potpourri Friday! Have a very Merry Christmas and wonderful Holiday Season!
Beautiful decor. I love the mason jar candles on the stairs. How old is your house? I can tell it’s very old by the floor boards and the steep stairs. My house was built in 1850. I love century plus homes.
Your tree and dining room look very appealing. I know what you mean about wanting to try every decoration that you have seen on a blog.
I was visiting Nester when I saw the Christmas Tour of Homes 2011.
Your home looks like it’s straight from a magazine! I love it!
I really miss living in a home with beautiful crown molding.
You just don’t see that detail in Las Vegas.
Your comments about your stairway made me laugh. Only somebody who has lived with a narrow winding stairway can truly relate. I refinished my 4th and LAST stairway in our current house and have never had a pretty railing either. Regardless, your house looks beautiful and is filled with vintage charm. Visiting from Common Ground. Merry Christmas!
Your home looks so welcoming. Love the decor, and those wood floors really caught my eye. Merry Christmas.
Beautiful! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!
Your home is beautifully decorated for Christmas. I am visiting from Down to Earth Style.
