Home Style Saturdays


Howdy howdy, and welcome to Home Style Saturdays. I hope y'all are in full on Christmas mode Well, actually most of y'all are probably through decorating and shopping. It's been a very busy week after returning home late Tuesday night. I'm finally decorating for Christmas and the tree is up! I will be in two tours over the next two days so be sure to come back for those. One is a  guest room and the other is the tree. Today I'm sharing my Christmas Table that I shared a couple of days ago, just in case you missed it, plus it was part of a tour, too and you don't want to miss all that inspiration. December is the month for festive tours, for sure.

bHome for the Holidays Tour


December is in full swing with lots of wonderful tours. I love getting all this fabulous holiday inspiration. It's definitely the most wonderful time of the year! As I was part of another tour yesterday, sharing my holiday table, the bhome for the holidays tour started. My tour is on Sunday so I hope you'll drop back by to see a super cute guest room, if I do say so myself. So sit back, get comfy and enjoy all the inspiraton.

Traditional Christmas Table....Styled and Set Tour


Hi everyone, it is so good to finally be home! I am so glad that I had the foresight to decorate this table very early. I knew the kitchen reno was going to happen and make lots of dust and mess so I set this early and took the pictures. Then I put it all away before the mess began. Of course as the kitchen reno was being done we got called away unexpectedly for a week and I feel so very behind on everything. I'm patting myself on the back for at least having this holiday table to ready to share today as part of the Styled and Set tour hosted by Lory at Designthusiasm. If you just came from Randi's of Randi Garrett Design, welcome. She always sets stunning tables. If you are new here I hope you will come back and visit again.

Wow Us Wednesdays #302


Welcome to Wow! Hope y'all are having a good week so far. I wrote this post early while out of town and hopefully we returned home today after a very long week. Thank you again for all your prayers and condolences. 

Now let's look at some features from last week and get this party started!

I love this cute DIY storybook art by Blesser House along with a tutorial.

Seven Christmas Mantels


Today I'm sharing the seven Christmas mantels from my last seven years of blogging since I'm still away and can't decorate yet for this year. These will be new to my new readers and may inspire some ideas for your mantel and for my long time followers, too. For those who have been following a long time you will notice changes of the mantel color over the years. I hope to be going home tomorrow so I can start this year's decorating. You can click on the date under each photo to visit the old posts.

Thank You and A Christmas Tour


Did everyone have a good Thanksgiving? Our plans were quite drastically changed after getting the phone call about my dad on Monday. Thank you all so much for all the prayers posted on facebook, instagram, my blog and a few personal emails. They all mean the world to me. As many of you know he did pass away after the family decided to take him off of life support. He went very quickly and peacefully. We were hoping to be back home by now, but there are some legalities to take care of on Monday, since the law firms are closed for the holiday, so we are having to stay longer. My house is a total wreck from the kitchen reno and I have not begun Christmas decorating, but these things will have to wait. I'm sure everything will come together after we get home.

 Today I dug into my archives to share my home tour decked for Christmas in 2013. Be sure to click on my link below and check out what my friends are sharing, too this week.
