christmas home tour

Even though I used almost exactly the same Christmas decorations, this year's Christmas home tour feels totally different. If you missed it last year, check it out in this post. This year felt a bit weird. Just as we were finally getting the house clean and cleared out from the renovation, I dragged out our stuff and filled it back up again. I normally decorate everything at once, but this year I did it slowly because I felt a bit overwhelmed bringing even more stuff into the house. If you've lived in a construction zone, then you know exactly what I mean! Now that we're almost finished, you get to see a sneak peek of all the rooms I'll be sharing in the new year!

We found our Home Depot giving away all of their tree trimmings, so I scooped some up to put into vases around the house. This has been my favorite decoration this year.

I spy Tobias.

We got a fun new tree that has both white lights and big multicolored bulbs. Since I was trying to keep it simple this year, I only put on about half of our ornaments. Also, after many years of searching, I finally found a tree topper I like!

Seriously, I'm loving these tree trimmings. They also make everything smell like Christmas, something we've never had with a fake tree!
