CHRISTMAS IN OUR FAMILY ROOM


Hello, everyone!
Are you ready for Christmas week?
I think I am. :) 
Our home is ready to receive our guest and enjoy the holidays. I just have a few final touches to make 
to our Christmas table and lots, lots of cooking and baking. :)

Today, I am sharing our family room, where we will be spending most of our family holiday time.

CHRISTMAS CHEER ON THE PORCH



Yes, finally! LOL
I know you all probably were thinking I just forgot all about the porch this year.
Actually, it was the first area that I decorated, but it is taking me a while to go through all the pictures.


It is nothing out of this world, just a few decorations to welcome our guest this holiday season, 
specially our little nephew. I know he is going to love it. :)

ENTRYWAY, STAIRWELL AND "DOLLAR TREE" GARLAND



How is that for a tittle? LOL
I have been trying not to overwhelm you with all my Christmas decor pictures, so I decided to do 
an "all in one" post of our entryway holiday decor.

2014 CHRISTMAS TREE


Am I the only one feeling like I am really, really behind this year? 
This month is going by so fast!
 
I have to confess that this year it is really taking me a while to get into the Christmas mood. 
I am very homesick. 
I miss my beautiful Spain and my parents and brothers like crazy. Another Christmas we have to spent apart.

And our son won't be home this year for the holidays, that is another reason for my heavy heart.
And the fact that just today we reached almost 80 degrees in San Antonio, it doesn't help any. 
It just doesn't feel like Christmas to me.

But I continue decorating and being cheerful for my husband and children, the house is finished, the gifts have been bought and wrapped, the Christmas cards have been mailed and even the menu has been planned.
Now, I am just going to share with you all what our home looks like this time of the year 
and then enjoy the holidays as much as I can.



TUESDAYS AT OUT HOME #91


Welcome to Tuesdays at Our Home!



Hope everyone had a marvelous weekend! 
Ours was not so great since the whole family came down with a terrible cold on Friday, which brought us flu like symptoms, so we have pretty much spent our weekend vegetating on the sofa, watching movies and eating soup. :)
At least this didn't happened to us during Christmas. 

 Last week we had another great party.
I was so happy to see some new blogs joining us.
Thank you all for your support!
Here are some of the highlights.

Vel at Life & Home at 2102  shared with us a tour of her gorgeous home decorated for Christmas. 
Just beautiful! 


 Carol at An Oasis in the Desert created a beautiful and warm entryway and living area for the holidays.
Love her entryway table!


Robin at Decorating Tennis Girl took us for a tour of her beautiful home decorated for Christmas.
Every room looks amazing!

 Shelia at Note Songs shared her gorgeous Christmas mantle.
Love the wreath!


 If you want your home smelling beautiful Christmas, all you have to do is pay a visit to Poppy at  
With a Dash of Color, where she shared a wonderful recipe for Christmas potpourri.


 Shenita at Embellishments by SLR created a gorgeous holiday vignette on her coffee table.
So beautiful and elegant!


 Gail at Purple Hues & Me amazed us again with her creativity. You just have to go see the beautiful dioramas she created using boxes from the Dollar Store.


 And last but not least, a great recipe and video for Snowball Cookies was shared by Jodie at Jodie Fitz.
Got to make some! :)

OUR CHRISTMAS KITCHEN


Hello, everyone!
I normally don't do a post on Monday mornings, since Tuesdays at Our Home link party will be live 
later on this afternoon, but with only ten days left before Christmas (can you believe it?) I figured I better 
get my pictures organized and up on the blog.

Today I am sharing with you our kitchen all decorated for the upcoming holidays.

CHRISTMAS MANTLE 2014


Hello, dear friends!
I hope everyone's week is going well.

I have been busy trying to finish all my Christmas decorations. Almost there!
Since I am still adding the final touches to the other rooms and it is raining so I can't take pictures of our front porch, today I am sharing with you our mantle for this holiday season, which is finally finished.



I warn you, lots of pictures! :)
It is taking me so long this year, because I literally made everything to decorate our family room. 





 On the left side of the mantle you will find my old homemade trees which have been dressed up 
for this year new theme.



 In the center I used two glass vases from Homegoods filled with ornaments and the "Joy" letters I made.
After we decided on going "green", I had to give them a new look.




 On the right side, I just used my old lantern from Kirklands 
and created a little Christmas scene inside.






 On each end of the mantle you will find my old metal vases which got spruced up with some new burlap ribbon.
The branches came from one of our trees and I used Epson salt to give them a winter look.
On each branch I added one of this little owls.
They were sooo cute I just couldn't help myself. :)



I used my old lighted garland we had for years and just gave it a new look.
This is my first time using mesh ribbon, so I was a little worry about the outcome. :)





 For the hearth, I made some new pillow covers, filled up a basket with white and green poinsettias 
and made another sign, which I decorated with sparkly snowflakes from Dollar Tree.
My husband made me the little frame to finish it off.







 And that is our Christmas mantle for this year.





 Thank you all for stopping by!
I am off to visit your blogs, which is dangerous because I always find more beautiful Christmas inspiration. LOL
I will never be finished this year!

See you all soon!
