Christmas Tour of Homes

It’s Friday!!!

Today I’m participating in the Christmas Tour of Homes over at Kelly’s Korner.  
I love decorating for Christmas!  I don’t have a ton of decorations, mainly because I’m slowly buying things each year, but also because I am currently renting a furnished house and I am waiting to invest in some things until I live in my own space.  Still, I am pleased with how it’s all turned out.  
This is the view from the kitchen into the living room.  I bought this tree five years ago for $25.  It still looks good when decorated, but I plan to get a new one with the after-Christmas sales.  I love that my dog decided to put all his toys under the tree this year.  

 My landlord has a thing for corner cabinets so I tried to jazz them up a bit.

 I bought this candle nativity from Dayspring a couple years ago.  I plan to get a Willow Tree one in the future, but for now, this is enough.  I did the canvas myself.

This is a printable I downloaded from Pinterest several years ago,  I actually leave it up all year.
This is the view from the front door.  This house is so cozy.

 And a bad iPhone pic of the tree.

 Moving into the kitchen, I just have a few touches here and there.  Christmas mugs and She Reads Truth Advent prints….

 Some Christmasy hand towels I got for a dollar at Kohl’s.

 Another canvas I did last winter above the kitchen sink.

 My Christmas cookie tins.  I cut back on my Christmas baking this year for a couple reasons.  First, I just don’t have the time.  Work is crazy.  Second, I’m trying to be on a diet.  Not easy during this season, but I’m trying to muddle through.  I only made shortbread and snowballs, so a couple of these are empty.

 The kitchen table, which I rarely actually use for eating.  I should probably have used my Christmas tablecloth.  Oops.  The poinsettia in the background was a gift from my boss.

And there you have it.  How I wish I could decorate like this all year!
