Christmas Home Tour 2014

Hello, hello! I’m so excited to be a part of the Holiday Home Tour hosted by Chris at Just A Girl! I love getting a peek into how others decorate their homes for Christmas, don’t you? A special welcome to you if you are visiting from Stacy’s lovely place. I’m excited to show you how I’ve decorated our little home in the country. This is my absolute, hands down favorite time of year.

My style is eclectic, layered, cozy and what I like to call rustic glam. I don’t know if that’s an official style, but it’s me. My dad says my decorating is like “I Spy” — You always see something different. Haha!

We are so blessed and grateful to be living in my Memaw and Granddaddy’s house. It’s a treasure. There are so many memories here. C’mon in and look around the living room, dining room, den, kitchen and bathroom. :)

The tree is my favorite. It includes a few handmade ornaments that always decorated Memaw’s tree. I also decided to add the tartan plaid pennant banner that I made last year.

I bought live garland for the first time this year. It was the best decision ever according to my momma. :) I agree.

Mixing plaids is so much fun! My favorite things on the table are Memaw’s milk glass glasses.

Galvanized minnow bucket + gold spray painted sticks + ornaments + fun ribbon = perfection

We actually got curtains hung last week. I feel like such a legit adult now. Haha! Now we just need blinds. What can I say? It’s a benefit of living in the boonies?

This year I was drawn to decorating with stars for some reason. They are cheerful and full of light…makes me happy!

More live garland. The best!

I added a few pops of Christmas in the front bathroom that we completely gutted almost a year ago. It’s such a bright and happy space. And it has the most awesome floor.

The den.

This is what you call “kid friendly” decor.

We recently completed the backsplash makeover. It’s all done with paint.

I saw this teapot at Pier 1 a few weeks ago when I was out shopping with my mom. I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so I went back and got the very last one they had. I love it!Christmas Home Tour 2014 | MyBlessedLife.net

Memaw always had a gum drop tree. She spray painted a branch for many years, so I revived that tradition this year. This is probably the world’s most epic gum drop tree. Haha!

We very recently added this kitchen island. It’s a “make do” until we can build an island to include a dishwasher. Oh my word, that will be a happy day.

    Myra,
    OH MY……I love everything about your Holiday Home Tour! If I had to pick favorites – and that’s hard to do because there’s so many wonderful things – I would have to pick the tree (love those sentimental ornaments!), your Christmas table and the holiday vignettes you’ve created on the gray buffet and the apple green desk!! Another favorite is the “O Holy Night” burlap print…..love! Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing….I think I agree with your Dad about “I Spy”, but I love it! Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas!!
    Blessings,
    Lanita

    Myra, your home is absolutely lovely. And I love the “O, Holy Night” on burlap. Is this your design or is a printable that I could find somewhere? I would love to make a few for my family.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Lovely. The joy we bring into our homes by making it lovely for family is yet another layer of the gratitude we show for our blessings. Now lovely is often defined as “well played in” at our home, for one can definitely see that we’re not just decorating but living there as I know you do too! xo
    Merry Christmas!

    Myra–
    This is SO beautiful! It looks so put-together but at the same time so comfortable and homey. I love your style! And I love those new curtains–I am hoping to do that in the new year too!
    Merry Christmas!

    Oh my goodness, there are so many things I love but the stocking bunting on the mantel has to be my favorite, it’s SO adorable! I also love the gum drop tree, I might have to start that tradition with my daughter. :)

    So pretty! I love all the plaid on the table setting! I’m mad for plaid 😉 My grandmother always had gum drop tree too! Her tree was plastic but I love your spray painted version. Potential dumb question: Would it be safe to eat the gum drops off the spray painted branches? There’s no way I could have a gum drop tree around and expect my little ones to not nibble!

    Hi there! Beautiful photos of all of your decorations! I have to ask–can you tell me where the cute rug is from? The gray one with the white dot hexagons?? I love it!

  1. […] I don’t know if it’s because I grew up on the country side of Houston, Texas, but I love rustic design.  Burlap, wood, and plaid just reminds me of good ole southern hospitality.  I love it.  It really makes me feel happy and I think Myra did a great job incorporating holiday touches with a rustic design approach.  You can check out her full blog post here.
