My Christmas House Tour!
Welcome to my Christmas house tour!
The next stop after the fabulous Beth of Home Stories A to Z.
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.
An eclectic mix of kissing balls and antlers in an old wooden rice bucket.
I love our snow village jars because I am a firm believer that everything is better with a bit of bling.
Can you believe I was about to donate these metal stocking to the thrift shop!
A coat of copper spray paint gave them a new lease on life.
I have collecting-itis and there’s no cure.
One of my globes ran away from it’s family and is now the tree topper on my trunk tree.
Best part – this vintage globe is a lamp.
Down came my coloring book art to make room for my found windows.
Demijohns are another favorite collection – they light up my life with string lights.
What’s better than a glam tree in the dining room for a festive Christmas dinner.
My girls get their own little snowball tree in the sunroom.
It’s near our mason jar Advent calendar.
This is where the magic happens – I mean pomegranate martini mixing of course.
See more of my Christmas kitchen here.
See how easy it is to etch glass and make your own Let Them Eat Cake cake dome.
Eight shiny, glittery dollar store reindeer strung with some bakers twine.
More bling in an unexpected place.
My Brimfield find stocking stretchers are hung by the front door with care.
My hubby’s dad raced down the snow covered hills on this sled …
now it holds a row of snowy mason jar candles.
Just paint the glass of an old window for an instant chalkboard.
Favorite feather tress are perfect for showing off special vintage Shiny Brites.
He’s making a list and checking it twice so you better be nice.
Every year, I give my girls a special ornament that hang on our main family 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)?
Peace on earth and a joyous holiday season my friends.
I’ve even decked out my front porch with some of my favorite vintage finds – see more of my Winter Porch here.
Stop by in the coming weeks to see my kitchen and it’s white tree, porch with vintage soda crates, and who knows what else all blinged out for Christmas.
In the meantime, let’s reminisce with my last year’s Christmas House!
While I wait for Santa to bring me even more bling …
make sure to stop by Four Generations One Roof – Stop #9 on the house walk!
Shhhh, it’s a surprise house all gussied up for the holidays.
To see the full roster of holiday homes from the beginning, stop by Jennifer Rizzo.

So pretty Kelly! The fireplace is my favorite and your comment about you husband made me bust out laughing 🙂 ha. I’m sure he loves it now though! Nicely done!

And all the eclectically vintage-ness of it all. Kudos on a Christmas Tour well done!!! You know I’ve been waiting for this and you didn’t disappoint!!! xoxo jules
I always love being invited into your beautiful home. I, too, have been infected with collectivitis and there is no know cure! Love the copper stocking…so glad you rescued them.
You are a woman after my own heart! Chalkboards, old windows, vintage ornaments- love it all! And speaking of chalkboards, I have admired the one on the stand that you have featured in several of your posts. Wherever did you find that gem?
Thanks so much and that chalkboard is a find from the nun’s yard sale Rhonda – you can read about it here: http://eclecticallyvintage.com/2012/06/fab-friday-finds-sister-act/
Love it all Kelly! I’m coveting the copper stockings, great choice to keep and paint them…they look perfect! And that globe is to die for. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home all decked out for the holidays!
Beautiful! And so perfectly you!!
SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL…SO MANY WONDERFUL IDEAS TO STEAL…THANKS !!!!
Gorgeous Christmas Home tour!! Love it all!
Your Christmas decor is beautiful. I love all the bling.
The sock stretchers made me smile!
Love your house Kelley! I agree everything is better with bling! My favorite thing though is the Scrabble letters “Peace on Earth” and the globe. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Well done!
everything is so pretty! i especially love your evening shots!
It all looks so festive again, Kelly. Love it all.
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. My hubby will FLIP, when I tell him what I’m going to do with a section of it!! : ) Your post this morning was just what I needed for a boost of some much needed holiday spirit.
WOW Kelly, truly beautiful. I love the fireplace it came out so great with the lighted sign and all the other touches. Love the snowflakes hanging in the windows on the wall. Great vintage ornaments on the trees too!!!
Very fun Christmas decor, Kelly! Love the standing chalkboard!
Beautiful Kelly! You are so creative! I love it.
Too good Kelly. You’ve outdone your self once again. Every nook and corner just oozes the holiday spirit.
Only YOU would think to create a suitcase christmas tree with a globe topper … love! The rest of your Christmas home is amazing … glad your stocking stretchers returned this year, and I want your shiny bright trees! Happy Holidays, friend … I’m off to take your tour again!
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!
Kelly, I took your tour like 10 times. Seriously. I can’t get enough. I love it all!!! Sarah
I am crushing on that JOY sign! So incredibly cute! The hand mirrors on the Christmas tree are such a creative Eclectically Vintage touch. Love!
Everything is beautiful, but oh my goodness that sign is AMAZING!!! You did a fabulous job. Merry Christmas!
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
Wow love everything. I especially loved the globe with peace on earth. So sweet.
This has to be one of the most creatively decorated homes that I have seen. I really enjoyed my visit !
Ho Ho Ho…I am in the spirit now. LOVE the lights in the large jars! Everything is wonderful!
Everything is beautiful and very creative, I especially love your vintage items.
the trees are gorgeous and so is that sign!!!
Awesome and beautiful, and beautiful and awesome…. all of it. Warm, inviting, drink wine, and you said kissing balls to make me laugh. I’m on my way over.
Everything is beautiful Kelly!
So much creativity! Your home looks festive and warm and full of personality! Lovely!
It’s all so festive and fun Kelly!! Love the Birch Stenciled sign over the mantel, such a fantastic look!!
Your home looks so wonderful and festive! Makes to want to start decorating my home.
Oh dear, how I love all of your wonderful finds! So much to adore!!! Chalkboards are all super fun, stocking stretchers are to die for, and the globe lamp is fabulous…and your “peace on earth” is so fun! I’m gonna have to revisit your home for sure! Thank you for sharing!
Beauty everywhere Kelly. Love it all. Hanging the vintage wooden stocking stretchers is so interesting. I have some that I should figure out a place to hang. Thanks for sharing you beautiful home.

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.
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
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! 🙂
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.
Love, love the birch tree stencil! Everything is so homey and interesting to look at. Wonderful job, Kelly!
Such a lovely home! Thank you for sharing – I am in LOVE with your globe! + little wooden stockings! ;}
Beautiful!! I love your home!
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!
Your house and decorations are absolutely gorgeous!
As always your beautiful way of styling leaves me smiling and inspired! Love, Love, Love!
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!
Wow, everything is just beautiful Kelly! Every single thing! One of the best tours I’ve seen. Great job 🙂
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!
I am always blown away by your amazing creativity. I love every inch of your gorgeous home tout. Those suitcases and teh scrabble letters… so perfect. Great job, Kelly!
Your whole home is Fabulous! Love your style!
You are my favorite.
Aaahhhh, where do I start?? Love, love, love your home – beautifully set for the Holidays!!
I have 3 of those metal stockings in my “to donate” box! I’m pulling them back out! LOVE the spray painted version! Everything looks beautiful! Life to the full! Melissa
Um, Hello Kelly! You are amazing, as always!!! I love it all. That kitchen tree wants to move in with me. It told me 😉
So pretty! The lights in the demijohns is a fantastic idea. The snow village jars are another awesome look. Thans for the tour!
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.
Your home tours are always so beautiful. The perfect place to stop by and have my morning coffee!
Love it Kelly- so many amazing details, but I think my fave might be the globe and scrabble letter vignette. Awesome, wish I had thought of that!!
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!
I must confess – there hasn’t been much cooking lately – but a lot of microwaving!
The Joy sign is from Target (they also have a Noel & Peace version)!
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
I found them at Home Goods many years ago!
Such a stunning Christmas Tour! I’m sharing on my FB page tomorrow 😉

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!
Hi Lanee and thanks so much – I keep all the Christmas stuff in bins in the basement. Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas!
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.
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!
I just used bakers twine to string them together Lynne!
Thank you!! This will be my first dollar store craft!! Love you home, will be using it for inspiration!! Lynne
What dollar store did you find them at? I love this garland!
I shop at the Dollar Tree!
Thank you! I hope they still have them this year! P.S. – I also really love the “Peace on Earth” Scrabble tiles.
I just saw them at my Dollar Tree – good luck!!
Where did you find the birch tree stencil? I can stop looking at that amazing mantle piece!
It’s from Cutting Edge Stencils!
You have such a beautiful home. I love your snowflake window so much that I featured it in my post “15 Rustic Farmhouse Christmas Decorations”. http://www.diyhsh.com/2017/10/15-rustic-farmhouse-christmas.html Hope you’ll stop by and check it out.
