  7. Here I am this year a participant…yeah! Last year I looked at every link you had for the Christmas tour, the only difference this year is I am showing off my Christmas home. Thank you for doing this every year, now I am going to grab my tea and enjoy some home tours. Diane

  8. All my What I Made Wednesday posts have been crafts this December, but I plan on posting my home decorations next WIM Wednesday so I’ll be sure to link up then. I hope it won’t be too late!

  9. Hi! Thank you for the fun party!
    I haven’t “decorated” yet and love all the ideas! Whew! I need a cup of coffee and Pinterest!
    HUGS! You home is cozy and full of love, as usual!
    Blessings to you and your family!

  10. Thank you for hosting — I am sorry to be so late to the party, but I just don’t decorate as early as some.

    I am coming back to explore your blog in detail very soon — it looks so pretty!

  11. Just linked up :) A little late but so happy to be here! Your collage is cool and I’m heading to check the linkups now :) Thanks so much for the party! Cute new profile pic to!

  12. I just linked up after coming across your party last night! I am am loving looking at everyone’s beautiful homes!

  13. Thank you for hosting. Have a very Merry Christmas!

  14. I am so excited to be included in this link party! Better late, than never, right?! ;) It’s been crazy blogging and Christmas demands included. I need to be better organized with my time. Oh well, you live and learn. Hope to see you again at Blissdom. Merry Christmas, wonderful you!

  15. Thanks for hosting this. I have been feeling so “out of touch”~secluded with no festivities happening around me and very little in the way of “Christmas Spirit”. This tour of homes really boosted my morale and gave me the kick in the rear I needed to get some corners of my house feeling a little more cozy.

  16. Your home is amazing! Love the color scheme. And wow … 500+ blog links … lots of decorating inspiration here in blogland. Thanks for hosting!

  17. Thank you so much for hosting! This is amazing; there is so much talent out there. Your home looks gorgeous and I am in love with the throw that you embellished!!

    Happy holidays!

  18. Awwww….it’s so lovely to see all the beautiful Christmas decorations that everyone has posted. I only have two advent calendars up for my daughters this year. This might be one of the strangest Christmases to date. We are getting ready for the movers to come right after the holidays (the first week in January). We are headed to China in the beginning of January! The best part about this holiday season aren’t the decorations or the cookies but the fact that we will get to spend time with family before we leave. Merry Christmas everyone!

  19. Thanks for hosting Nester…lots of great inspiration! I absolutley love your simple mantel this year…just beautiful! Happy Holidays! ~Deb~

  20. Everything is gorgeous and I’m late to the party as per usual. It’s hard to break with tradition. Thanks for hosting! Merry Christmas!
