Holiday House Walk - Eclectically Vintage House Tour

Welcome to my Christmas house tour!

The next stop after the fabulous Beth of Home Stories A to Z.

Home stories A to Z Christmas House Tour

Thanks Jennifer Rizzo for inviting me to this week long tour of 30+ houses decked out in all their holiday finery.


I’ve been decking the halls, trimming the trees (so many trees!), sipping an eggnog or two (spiked of course!), and giving Mrs. Claus a run for her money.


My hubby wasn’t very jolly when I asked him to throw that old piece of decking – found discarded at our dump – into our car.

A birch stencil was all it needed to make it joyous.

I love our snow village jars because I am a firm believer that everything is better with a bit of bling.

One of my globes ran away from it’s family and is now the tree topper on my trunk tree.

Remember when you were a kid and you would lay under the tree and stare up into the glowing branches (or was that just me)?

  8. As always, you amaze me! I didn’t think anything could top last year, but you outdid yourself. Love everything! I have to admit, I’m a copycat and use many of your ideas. I just happen to have some old decking that was ready to be tossed.

  11. Hey! I recognize that Southern Living at Home stocking! I have one too, and I have not used it in years. I need to give it a coat of spraypaint! Like, duh. Why didn’t I think of that. So many amazing ideas here, Kelly. You rocked it OUT my friend!

  12. I so remember laying under the tree. I love Christmas time, all the memories are special and I try to recreate the feeling for my children. Your home looks wonderful, Merry Christmas. Alaina

  16. I was trying to keep track of the things I wanted to say I love about this post but there are too many. Your house looks amazing. The Santa on the banister made me laugh – so cute. Love the snowflakes on the windows.

  17. So much fantastic to see in one home, oh my, I’ll have to go back thru your photos many times so I can “borrow” some of your ideas, love what you did. Do you mind if we borrow some or all of your ideas? I’m quite envious of all you’ve done. Love looking at your home and what you’ve done. So enjoyed the tour.
    I used to have some sock stretchers in KY but think I must have sold them, darn it. When we moved to Western CO we bought a lot smaller house than we had in KY. Had to sell so many of my pretties.
    How did you manage to get 4 alike old wood windows? I had several in KY but had to leave several behind, think I have one old window left out in our shed. It’ll be used to decorate this year on my shutter shelf a.k.a. my mantel. That poor old shelf gets restyled all the time, any excuse. loved your Santa on your bannister also, so cute. I love Christmas decorations period. Happy week

  18. Kelly!! Everything looks amazing!! You have so many fun details and it’s all just beautiful but I think those metal stockings are my absolute FAV! Well done girl! 🙂

  19. As always, your house lives up to your blog name! I always love seeing your creative take on Christmas trees. That suitcase tree with the globe topper is a stroke of decorating brilliance. I’m ready for my cocktail now.

  20. Always and forevermore, your home is brimming with ideas and inspirations!!! In love with your mantle and the unique garland you used also the staircase! I can never get my staircase garland right, never, hope some of the inspiration rub off on me next year!!!!! Love it!

  21. Oh my gosh – love your home with all your thrifted finds! Love all your vintage sleds, the glam mirrors on the tree, and my favorite – the globe atop the tree trunks! Can’t wait to see the rest of your house when you share it!

  22. Everything looks so pretty… I especially love the mantel, your joy sign and the metal stockings good thing you didn’t get rid of it, it looks great! Merry Christmas!

  23. I love all of your various trees. We sold our house and are in a temporary (small) rental so no room for multiple trees, but you can imagine as soon as I have a place with multiple rooms, I’ll be following your lead.

  24. Amazing holiday decorating! I don’t know how everyone finds the time to work and blog and decorate and cook and…whew! Was wondering where the lighted JOY sign came from that is on your birch palette mantel? It is fantastic!

  25. LOVE your home! Your taste is so similar to mine (only better, LOL). Your feather trees are perfect… Do you remember where you found them?
    Merry Christmas! xo Bets

  26. Your home is amazing! When do you begin decorating? When do you find the time? Where do you keep all your items when not in use? I love the electric, vintage, modern style, I am trying to find a stye for my home and a way to keep it up with two little ones. Again, thanks for the inspiration!

  27. I’m very late to the tour this year, but I’m so glad I made it. Your Holiday-decorated home is my all-time favorite. It has captured the beauty of the season perfectly for me and will be a timeless inspiration to follow for years to come.

  28. I love the Reindeer Garland!!! I went to the Dollar Store and sure enough they had the Reindeer:) My question is how did you attach them to the twine…glue?… just string it through? Thanks!

        1. Thank you! I hope they still have them this year! P.S. – I also really love the “Peace on Earth” Scrabble tiles.
