My holiday house tour----living room addition! & Crafty Scrappy Happy Me. Thursday {16}

Welcome WELCOME!
I am SO thrilled to have you HERE at my little blog and here for my little home "tour".
Starting with my living room.
{come back tomorrow by my kitchen}



Here is my living room as seen from the entry way.
Complete with my baby.... my 10 year old baby Quincy my golden retriever. 
You see she just happened to be taking a nap during my photo session and I just felt toooooo bad to make her move.

And then there is my most favorite piece.


 My 25 drawer beauty!


Ohhhh aren't those vintage ice skates just amazing?!
{I am telling you----scout those out at thrift stores and garage sales.... 
they are the best winter decor EVER!}


ahhhh yes but back to the room.


And I must point out my fake mantle {fantle} in its black form vs its old white version.
But really the decor from the first post where I shared that I had painted my mantle hasn't changed all that much....
butttt just the same I love LOVE it!



Anddd I adore all things that remind me of the holiday season.
Including decor..... that is NOT matching but more focused on meaningful memories and all things special to the holiday.
Case and point---my Christmas tree..... it is FULL of special ornaments.
NONE of which match any type of theme or anything..... just many many wonderful memories!
And I LOVE it!



I am all about comfy.
About blankets and pillows and cuddling up.
And as a personal sidenote I am also all about dog hairs on the couch and for messed up pillows and just everything that represents a family of 2 humans and 2 dogs just enjoying time spent together!



but my living room could just NOT get away with only ONE tree.... soooo a mini tree in a vintage pitcher seemed like just the right fit!


And then there is the mantle that hasn't changed ALL that much since it had its dark makeover....
buttt still it has dressed up a bit for the season!




I like the mix of simple and shimmer that balances and makes the space seem calm and seasonal.


Anddd the best news is, I hardly bought anything NEW for the decor..... 
I just mixed and matched until I felt like it looked justtttt right!

_____AND NOW_____
Lets get this party started!!

I posted our Christmas decor and linked it up here. I hope you have a moment to stop by. Your living room looks fabulous. I love the little details. Your cute dog adds to the loveliness of your home. We have four humans and two dogs in a pretty small home. I know all about messiness and just being comfy. It's what makes a house a home.
Thanks for hosting!

Ahhhh Jaime you just inspire me. You inspire me to love my family more. You inspire me to be true to myself. You inspire me to do what I love-versus what's popular. :) You inspire me to be better and I love that. Oh I just wish I could give you a big hug and say THANK you! Your home is beautiful!! I let my kids decorate our Christmas tree this year (which means ALL the ornaments at the bottom of the tree-5 on the same branch- and completely uncoordinated) fully intending to "fix" it sometime this month, but I've just decided to leave it because every time I look at it I smile and remember their beautiful faces laughing and singing and dancing as they decorated it and to me...that is Christmas.

Your living room is AMAZING! Seriously... I can't even believe how cute it is! And that you have a fur-baby and it still looks all gorgeous... I think that's a Christmas miracle! : )

Love the new blog design too (even though I realize I'm way late in noticing... but I'm getting back to the blogs after a little break and I just had to tell you how cute it is)! : )
