First, I’ll show you our living room. I think I did things a little simpler this year, but I’m loving it. You’ll see first thing that I LOVE color.

If you missed my fall house tour, then you haven’t heard about the baby grand piano my husband bought me recently for a steal on Craigslist. It needs some TLC, but it’s beautiful and I love it!

I think this years’ mantel is my favorite so far…

I had to keep my “fa & la” from last year – just put it in a different place! I got so many comments about it, I brought it back. 🙂

It was tricky this year finding a place for the Christmas tree since we added the baby grand, but we managed. I love it because now you can see the whole tree through the front door when it’s open. Our windows are higher up in the front, so it could never be seen before from the outside.

Here’s a shot of my DIY card display made out of cute cork boards I found at Hobby Lobby. I used them as plate chargers for fall.

    After watching your photos, I was soaked in the spirit of Christmas and wanted to see this holiday anew.
