It Begins, Part II~

Hi all!
I got the Christmas tubs from the garage today, or should I say hubby did, and I started on some holiday decorating.
I did the kids room first and I have to say that I'm loving it. I used a lot of red in their room and used all of their ornaments that they've had since they were just babies. 

The boys helped decorate their tree, and I think it looks fantastic!

The awesome name banners in the background were a gift from my sweet friend Amy last year. Thanks so much Amy, I still adore them!

This is a collection of my vintage and new bottle brush trees that I am slowly adding to the living room.

This is one of my favorite vintage Christmas cards that I have framed.

This little vignette is inside my new old cabinet that I got a couple of weeks ago at the flea market. I am still loving it!

Well, that's all for now.
Hopefully I can pick up the tree this weekend if it doesn't rain.
Have a lovely night.


  1. I always LOVE seeing pics of your gorgeous home!!! :) Thank you for sharing! Loved the way you decorated the boys' room! :) And yes, that tree does look fantastic!


  2. oh Melinda you so inspire me to get decorating, but alas I wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start.
    I want a tree so bad in B's room but I don't quite trust him yet, lol.
    Your boys room looks so amazing and thanks for the mention. Its all from the heart, you give me ideas and inspiration all the time and giving you those banners was just a small part of what you have given to me. :)
    Happy Holidays.

  3. Hi Melinda! The boys room is so sweet! I love your collection of christmas decorations.
    I might pull some christmas stuff out this weekend and start decorating!
    I hope you have a great weekend!
    hugs, Cheryl

  5. I absolutely LOVE it all! We have to get the store done before I can start on my house!! But hey, at least we have Christmas lights on the building at Country Roads with a little garland!!

    Take care, Sue

  7. I love your idea of framing the Christmas card! I have a couple that I have saved and they are sitting in a cupboard. I'm going to frame them-thanks for the idea!
