MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM SWEET SHADY LANE!!

Merry Christmas everyone!! There is nothing I love more than creating a cozy and inviting Christmas house! In fact, I couldn't wait to pull out all the Christmas boxes (I hadn't seen them in two years) and I loved going through every box and shouting with joy at all the special ornaments and mementos. I must have said, "look at this" a hundred times!!

Decorating for Christmas is always such a joy for me and being that it was our first Christmas in the house, I had to make some decisions as to what would work and what wouldn't. 980 has more open space than our last house and it was a challenge to make it feel intimate and inviting.

The end result was a cozy and warm Christmas home...In fact, I love it so much that I am disheartened to pack it all up.

Hoping you enjoy all the details!!
