What I love about my Holiday Home.

Kidsrein

Warm Holiday greetings my sweet friends! Im excited to partcipate in Miss Karla’s "What I love about my holiday home party". Christmas is such a gorgeous time of year and there is nothing more fun and festive than decorating your home with all your holiday treasures (new & old).

Grap a cup of eggnog (spike it if you wish! wink! ) and let the tour begin.

What I love about my holiday home is every room I decorate has it’s own theme. I LOVE all different types of decorated trees and colors. My tour will start in my cottage kitchen. The theme for this room is vintage red and green. I have a small but ever growing collection of santa’s and snowmen. To me this is my FUN holiday decor.  My son especially loves the kitchen.:)

My santa collection.

This is one of my favorite sweet displays in my kitchen. Grant loves the vintage Santa sleigh and elfs.

If any of you have small children you might have heard of the new book called the "Elf on the Shelf". It’s a Christmas book that comes with a elf doll. The elf is apparently Santa’s "eye’s and ear’s" and watches the children all day and reports back to Santa every night whether you’ve been naughty or nice. Everyday we move the elf to a new spot in our house. My son still doesn’t know what to think of him. For instance, if he’s not eating his dinner, we tell him that the elf is watching him, and he better eat or the elf is going to tell Santa. hee! hee! Here’s the elf  hanging out in my pot rack.

Being that I have an older home I have lots of hallways and little nooks throughout. It’s the perfect place to dress up the small cozy spaces with warm holiday glows.

I have a small tree in my bedroom with which I decorate with my son’s and daughter’s first Christmas ornaments. It’s all pink and blue.

This magical and cozy room is my living/den. This style is more darker and formal and is decorated more cottage victorian. I just love sitting on my big comfy sofa with feet piled up watching my favorite holiday movie "A Christmas Story" (Yes! The TV is behind the big mirrored armoire), and with the tree and candles lite all throughtout the room.

Hi Miss Jenn – Beautiful job for sure! I have popped you up on my own blog site with a copy of your lovely living room. Soooooo wish you were here somewhere close in Washington State. We could “hang” (wink) because you and I have very similar decorating styles. Coooooool.
Feel free to pop out to my blog: http://www.SITUSeattle.wordpress.com or visit my costuming site: http://www.CostumingInSeattle.com There’s lots to see there and perhaps you can refer friends to some of our events!

Yall, please do not trip over my jaw, as it just hit the floor. Jenn, I’ve been a fan of your blog and your creations for a while, and so I expected an amazing sight- but your holiday decorating is even beyond amazing. You rock!

Just speachless! So much beauty and your heart and soul is in every pic! Love the wreath hanging on the mirror in the dining room! Merry Christmas!

I need a napkin the size of my house to clean all this drool that is pouring from my mouth. Your dining room has me sitting here in a frozen state, not knowing what to think of that candiful feast. You have so outdone any decorating I’ve seen in a long time! You need to make those pictures into holiday cards girl!

Oh my gosh, that is all just ridiculously beautiful! I love the pink tree candle in your angel centerpiece, the pink tree on your dining room table and the cardboard? cottages- where did you get those?

Everything is amazing! I knew that when I popped over here I would be in for a real treat!! I just love it :)

Yall, please do not trip over my jaw, because it just hit the floor. Jenn, i’ve been a fan of your blog and your creations for a lil while, and so I expected to see something amazing. But this is beyond amazing!

Oh my! I LOVE your dining room! I think it is the most beautiful scene I have ever seen! Mine looks so plain compared to yours! Gorgeous! Stop by my holiday post and give me some pointers! :) Cindy Roberts

I want to tell you how much I love everything in this post – but I don’t even know where to begin! So fun!!

Your holiday decor is SO beautiful; I want to just keep coming back and gazing at it again and again!

I don’t even know where to begin – I’m out of words! Everything was so beautiful – Christmas as it SHOULD be in every home!
Thank you for the tour and Merry Christmas!

Jennifer, one can only hope that you someday turn your lovely home into a bed and breakfast, or perhaps have an “over night stay” blog give away…
Should this miracle occur, please allow me to be the first in line!
Honey, you ooze style and grace!
Ohh, and I owe you an email! I just found your lovely email in my spam file for some odd reason (dated quite some time ago).
Your blog is soooo my favorite! Thanks for sharing your beautiful life (and home) with us!!

There are a lot of comments here! How could you possibly be expected to read them all??
Well, anyhoo–not to repeat the obvious but your Holiday Home really could be in the pages of a magazine. You have a very good eye for detail & color.
Do you have a retail shop? You would be one of those shop owners that do fabulous window displays…
Merry, Merry Christmas Jenn!

Oh my! You must have a big garage to store all those decorations throughout the year – haha! Boy oh boy, your home looks magnificent! Like a real christmas wonderland. I can’t help but think that the childhood joy of christmas must touch everyone who walks through your front door. Amazing!

tammyCA

Your blog is such a delight and this home tour is especially so! I love it all, but I’m partial to the things I remember from my childhood…the little figurines, Santas, glittery houses…thank you for this Christmas treat! :)
And…Happy Holidays to you and yours!

amber

What a gorgeous home you have, and you have decorated so beautifully for christmas!
I love everything, but especially your dining room, and livingroom!
Blessings,

I’m not even sure how I got here! lol But your house is gorgeous! I’m incredibly jealous :)
I have a question, what are the markings on the back of these? http://sweeteyecandycreations.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/12/11/img_6350_edited1.jpg
I have a couple myself (packed away at the moment and I have no idea what box!) and I wanted to collect the others to match, kinda hard to find on Ebay if I don’t know what i’m searching for lol…I thought mine were limoges, but I don’t think they are.

Wow! First, what a thrill to visit your blog (I haven’t been here since Halloween!). I am amazed and absolutely tickled as I travel through your candy colored world! You are amazing and all of these beautiful things… ahhh… they just make my heart sing. Thank you for sharing and thank you for the fantastic holiday music! AND you look adorable in your prom dress! Happy holidays!!

Oh my goodness! You are just amazing! I adore your home, you are just so inspiring!

first of all…..GORGEOUS home! WOW. But I mostly wanted to comment on your schnauzer! We just got a mini schnauz pup 2 weeks ago, and we love her so much. her colors are much like your dogs’. How old is she/he, and what does he weigh?

Vienna

What an amazing way to decorate.My 6 year old daughter Sarah and I just sat with amazement going from room to room of your beautiful home..She did not under stand why we could not buy every thing in you’r home as I had to explain “thats not a Magazine sweetheart,that is this woman’s home.”
Thank you for the tour,
Vienna and Sarah
