A Very Merry Christmas Home Tour {Blog Hop!}


Welcome to my 2014 "A Very Merry Christmas Home Tour!" I'm so glad you're here! A big thanks to Carrie from Lovely Etc. for hosting this awesome tour this week. There are over 30 blogs participating, and I hope you'll get a chance to hop around and see all the other beautifully decorated homes. It'll be going on all this week.


For those of you who are new here, here's a bit of background about our little home before I jump into the photos. We rent a little row house in Philadelphia that was built in 1850. We love it, but as I'm sure many of you can understand, small homes certainly have their challenges - one of which is that it's only 12 feet wide! In total, the space adds up to 1000 square feet spread over three floors. My Christmas home tour today is of our first floor, which is one open space from the front of the back of the house that includes the kitchen, dining area and living room. Since space is limited (and we still live here in real life, ha!), we kept our Christmas decor simple. I also DIY'd many things, so you'll see some links to those projects along the way. :)

Let's get started!

Our living room is looking pretty cozy with its decorated mantle that includes a yarn pom pom garland (made from these yarn snowball ornaments), silver metal trees, candles and greenery.





The paint and glitter-dipped pine cone cluster wreath hanging on the left side of the fireplace is one of my favorite projects from last year, and I was excited to bring it out again this year! On a side note, we had our first fire in the fireplace a couple of weeks ago and it was so lovely. Wood-burning fires are one of my absolute favorite things in the winter.



I inherited these angels and Christmas trees from my grandparents. They're sweet, aren't they?


This silver starburst ornament from my 12 Days of Christmas lineup ended up being the perfect little "something" that our coffee table needed for Christmas. Behind it you can catch a sneak peek of my DIY'd Advent calendar - full post for that coming on Thursday this week!



When it comes to simple decorating, there's nothing easier than filling a clear bowl with a bunch of pretty ornaments. This collection of silver and clear glass ornaments look so elegant gathered together in this footed bowl (plus they're a mix of vintage and new, which I love!).


Moving into the dining area, you'll find our Charlie Brown-style Christmas tree! This little spruce came from IKEA, and I just wrapped the pot in kraft paper. It doubles as a centerpiece for our farmhouse table - gotta love decor that multitasks in a small home :).


I snagged the felted wool ball wreath that's around the base of the tree from West Elm last year for a song in their after-Christmas sale.


My husband loves the vintage roadrunner glasses in the photo below. They're the perfect vessel for an festive Christmas drink (Old Fashioned anyone?).



To wrap things up, here's a full room view of our little living and dining areas. I hope you enjoyed the tour of our little Philly row house! If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I don’t have a website yet, so I just put yours down because this is the one I’m on now. My questions is: I know Bluehost is having that $3.49 a month deal right now, until October 31st, but what about after October 31st? Because of your post I am considering starting my own blog and I want to take my time learning about it and saving money to pay for all this protection and CommentLuv and themes and whatnot. So, after Oct. 31st how much is it usually?

  14. Former Govs. Jeb Bush of Florida and adidas factory outlet Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, who until recently appeared unlikely to run, are now moving purposefully toward bids.
