The Harris Home Holiday Tour 2013

Welcome to the 3rd annual holiday housewalk!

This is my 3rd year participating and the fun just keeps growing.

I am so excited that you dropped by.

If you are visiting from the Craftberry Bush...Welcome!!

I'm stop #31 on the tour

Come on in!

Welcome to our home.

For those of you new here...

My husband and I have 

 3 kids, one very spoiled dog "Heidi" and one cat "Big Momma" that adopted us.

We built our  house on family land next door to my Dad. My sister's new home is almost complete so we will have a new neighbor soon. YAY

She will be just a few steps away and I can't wait.

Because our dining room and kitchen is kind of snugly small, I like to find ways to incorporate decorations without taking up too much space.
Adding a bow here or there works great.

And I do believe Molly is feeling kinda sassy..

I'm a lover of every holiday known to man but Christmas is by far my favorite.

My birthday is in December along with my anniversary so there is not a dull moment in this month.

I'm thankful for everyday.

With everything going on, I'm one of those that decorates early.

That's my excuse anyway...I just love it!!!

This is my hallway and the backdoor that welcomes friends and family.

It's also the dropping point for every ones treasures and shoes.

One of my favorite and most loved DIYs is this large chalkboard.

It was super easy to make and allows me to change things up for the holidays or leave fun memos

One of my favorite things about this chalkboard is the written notes after a party.

I tend to leave them up for weeks and giggle when I read them.

If you love lavender... you will love this soap!

I found it at World Market and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite things.

Because we have an artificial tree, I like to add a bit of live greenery here and there.

I find mine at our local tree lots.
They are always happy to share their unused scraps.

I say this every year and every year I just can't seem to part with it...

Our Christmas Tree.

Bless its heart.

It is 14 years old and has been good to us

It has become a part of our family ;)

I guess you could say we like hanging on to things..

Like these stockings.

I have had them for years and every year, I change them up just a bit.

This year I removed the flower and added a bow.

Just off of our family room is my new studio.

Because my studio space is limited, I didn't have room for a tree.

That didn't stop me from adding Christmas cheer ...

Burning yummy candles...

And a little sprig of holly here makes this space of work festive and fun.

At the end of a long day, it's so nice to soak in a hot tub.

For my back door guest... 

And just a reminder to myself..
When I start feeling frazzled and rushed about the season..
I stop and remember.. 
It's not about the decorations nor gifts.
It's about that sweet baby Jesus. Our Savior.

I hope you enjoyed your visit and if this is your first time here, it was so nice to meet you!

Sad news is my tour is almost over but the good news is...

We have one great stop left.

Please join me and head on over to Flea Market Trixie.
