Norcross Tour of Homes - Christmas

Hello everyone!

How was your weekend?  Mine was rather eventful due to the snow we received!  It wasn't planned either.  We were expecting a few snow flurries and very cold temps.  Suddenly, after school was in session,  and businesses were open, the snow fall multiplied and multiplied until some people received as much as a foot of snow here in GA!  My area only received about half that but it was enough to completely disrupt businesses, traffic, schools, and emergency services.  Many people lost power too.  I'm all about some pretty snowfall (when I'm expecting it and can prepare for it), but not this way.  The news forecast, here in Atlanta, was WAY off!  I am the planning type so I was caught completely off guard by this and caught in bumper to bumper traffic trying to get home.  The plans we made for my son's birthday had to be cancelled altogether too.  He got more than we did where he lives!  He is on his way to Disney so we won't get to see him until next weekend now.  

Before all of this disastrous weather, I had a chance to go on a fun holiday tour of homes with my sister in the city we grew up in.  It was a picture perfect beautiful day (unlike this weekend).  I took some pics to share with you.  

This house is FULL of color and FULL of nick knacks.  It reminded me a lot of Tracy Porter's style.  Lots of jewel tones and layers upon layers of things.  Are you ready?  

Warning!  Picture overload ahead.  

This house was built in 1993 and is in a subdivision.  Most of the other homes on the tour were in the historic district.  This home is deceiving though.  The outside looks very traditional, but the inside is NOT! Clearly, the way the reindeer is dressed outside is an indication of what to expect behind closed doors!

A Mini Christmas Tour of my Home

Hello everyone!

I'm feeling a bit behind this year since my calendar has been full of appointments lately.  I think January won't be much better either.  We're getting some improved health benefits in 2018, so I'm putting off some of those appointments until then.  My son may need glasses, and he needs to see an orthopedic doctor about his shoulders not being symmetric.  My dog has been dealing with an eye ulcer that won't heal too. I still have yet to do much Christmas shopping and my oldest son's birthday is this Friday. has been a hectic time for us.  I'm glad that I still have some time to get things done before Christmas and I'm glad I'm not hosting it this year too.  That should help out a lot!  So, needless to say, some of my blogging has taken a back seat lately.  I do find time to post on Instagram more frequently though.  So, please follow me there if you would like!  You can find it HERE.  

For now, here are a few pics of my home interior decorated for the holidays.

In my foyer, a strand of silver tinsel garland with white lights surrounds the mirror.  A small bowl of silver ornaments and some gold bells complete the look.

A Home Tour

Hello everyone!

How was your Thanksgiving?  We had a nice one!  It was beautiful weather and we spent the day at my nieces house for dinner. She lives in a beautiful home that she recently moved in to so I thought I would share some photos with you.  She likes to decorate with neutrals and prefers pretty feminine style furnishings just like I do.  So, I was very smitten with her decor!  We are definitely a kindred spirit when it comes to decorating.  My only regret is that I forgot to get a pic of the outside of the house.  It was so charming!  

You first walk through the front door and the living room is to the right and the dining room is to the left.
