Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester!!

Christmas Tour of Homes with The Nester

The Nester is one of my favorite craft/home decor bloggers.  I've followed her blog for about a year now.  She is the type of person I want to be best friends with, shop with, give her full reign of my house to do as she sees fit with.  I religiously follow her blog, and can't wait for the next edition to end up in my inbox.  I love her outlook on decorating; functional, lived in, not-to-stuffy but classy, and most importantly, "It Doesn't Have To Be Perfect, To Be Beautiful!!"  So, when The Nester announced on her blog that she was taking over The Christmas Tour of Homes from Boo Mama (another great blogger), I decided I was going to link in this year.  Last year, I followed the tour from The Nester's post and enjoyed seeing everyone's decorations in blogger world, but this year, I decided to do a link of my own, especially since The Nester was the new host.  The tour was supposed to start tomorrow morning but it seems the Nester posted early tonight and when I checked the site there were already 165 links to the tour.  I am going to go ahead and post and link up to this year's Christmas Tour of Homes with the Nester.  So, without further ado, here is our home all dolled up for the season.  I hope you enjoy the tour.  Thanks for doing this again Nester, I hope one day our paths cross, especially since you are a fellow North Carolinian and only live 2 hours away!!

  1. You've done such a beautiful job! Obviously you take inspiration well and run with it! =) I really like how you grouped the pictures together for us by room. It gave a very nice feel to your whole home.

    I'm sure Santa will enjoy it. =)

    Merry Christmas to you all!

  2. Your home is beautiful. I especially love the outside decorations - Santa is sure to be impressed. My daughters best friends name is Emerson and you don't hear it very often - at least not here in Australia.
