Christmas Living Room

Welcome!
Come on in.
I love this rug from Ballard Designs that Brittnay sent me a couple of years ago. We became friends through Rate My Space back before we had blogs. Cody calls her my "internet friend". :)

My little Believe corner.

You know I love these little characters.
The sofa table decorated with some greenery, a glittery Santa and candle.
This picture was fun to pull out this year since I got it for Christmas last year.
I still love this beading that you can wrap around anything. I got it a few years ago at a local craft fair and love to put it around candles. Thanks for touring our living room. :) I'll post some pictures of our dining room and kitchen later this week.

Beautiful! Shannon, I wanted to tell you that we have a little "side project" maybe in the making and I have a little blog (separate one) about where this journey may or may not bring us!

Hey Shannon!
Okay I swear sometimes I think you are my design/knick knack clone in Arkansas! The little candle/votive cup that is on your sofa table...I saw the same one this weekend at the Blacklion & fell in love w/it. It just caught my eye & looked beautiful! I think your home looks great as usual. I love the mesh netting. Is that an Arkansas thing? I haven't seen too much of it in SC but I love it & want to use it on my tree next year.

Merry Christmas!
Suzanne

Hi Shannon,
Everything looks great! Love your tree and mantel. The rug by the front door is adorable. I would love to visit Ballards some day.
I just posted a nativity scene with grandchildren that would be a great idea for the children in your family, too. Come take a look if you get a chance.
Merry Christmas to you!

West Hill Heritage said...

Love your blog - it is great.
I have the same beth moore book and it is just a blessing. It is on my nightstand. Love your decor

Girly Stuff said...

It all looks great! I love the wreaths on the back of the dining room chairs! And the Santa pics were a steal! I always take the number of years I expect to keep something and divide it into the price. So you spent...20years into 12 dollars = 60 cents on those babies this year!

I can justify anything! Anything I tell 'ya!

Kristyn Knits said...

Your home looks beautiful Shannon! I trust you are feeling well. Have a great Christmas season!

Kay said...

Love the welcome mat! And everything else is darling too. such great ideas!
