Welcome and thank you so much for stopping by to take a little peek at my Christmas in the Blue Mountains Home Tour! To be able to spread some Christmas cheer is something I love to do each year. Not only with my family but also with my friends and now with you!
I have been so lucky to team up with some of my blogging pals for the Christmas Sparkles Home Tour. You can find all of their beautiful Christmas homes below.
Christmas in the Blue Mountains Home Tour
Alrighty, let’s get on with spreading some Christmas Cheer!
This is a very different Christmas for us this year. Both of our kids are no longer living with us 🙁 They are both so busy paving their ways in this world and we couldn’t be prouder of them both. But for me, it feels weird and kinda empty. So rather than get all sad I have decided to look at this as another chapter in our lives and enjoy it!
Ever since I was little and while the kids were growing up, as soon as November arrived I’d be busting out the Christmas Decorations. Making gifts, crafting away and decorating would surely keep me nice and busy. Learning to sew all came about by dragging out my mum’s sewing machine to make my brothers and sisters Christmas stockings.
Christmas Sprinkles from our Dining Room
My passion for all things Vintage and Farmhouse totally inspired me this Christmas. I didn’t want to go out and spend a whole lot of money. Instead, try and use things that I already had.
If you have been following me for a while you know that I have a bit of a crush on music sheets and old books. Without a doubt, this sets the scene for our Christmas table. I didn’t just go to town ripping pages all willy-nilly out of any book. I picked up a book in the worse condition at my local thrift store for free and gave it a new lease on life!
Our hutch also had some Christmas sprinkles added to it.
One thing I did have trouble finding was white bottle brush trees to sit in our teacups. Bed Bath and Table came to the rescue!
Christmas Sparkles from our Lounge Room
Our house is generally dark due to our wooden floors and dark furniture. So to lighten up the room I covered the couch in a drop cloth and I cannot begin to tell you how much of a difference it has made.
These little paper snowflake trees were such a delight to find in Adairs this year. Of course, they had to come home with me!! 😉
Christmas Sparkles from our Kitchen
Being in the kitchen is one of my favourite places to be! Be rest assured that it doesn’t always look like this. There is always some sort of cooking going on. With pots and pans everywhere and sprinkled bits of whatever I’m cooking all over the floor! My hubby laughs so hard at me while he stands in the kitchen chit chatting to me while I cook. He says I remind him of the chef out of the muppets!! Let’s just say I’ll take that as a compliment……..
The kitchen is surely the heart of our home, especially when the kids are home. Hubby and the kids line the benches and we babble on with where ever the conversation will take us. Definitely one of my most favourite times!
That my friends is a wrap on this Christmas in the Blue Mountains Home Tour! I hope you have enjoyed our home as much as we do. Be sure to take a peek at all of the Open Houses from my blogging buddies.
From my family to yours wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
