12 Days of Christmas - Day 12 - Deck the Halls

Deck the Halls House is complete here at Erin's humble abode!! :)

Some say it's silly for me to decorate like I do considering that we are never home for Christmas.  But the truth is...I cannot imagine NOT decorating!!

I mean, we are home from Thanksgiving until almost Christmas!

One thing you will notice is....I'm still a traditionalist people!  I'm sorry...but I like my reds and greens around here!  Just like I like my orange and black at Halloween.

I kind of like a 'homespun' Christmas look, so I changed out the curtains and pillows to reds, and took my usual oranges out.  I put down the more traditional rug and sprinkled Christmas cheer, mostly in the living room, but touches are in each room.

So, without further ado, my final day of the 12 Days of Christmas (on the 21st of December, LOL)...my home all decked out!! :)

Um, I don't intentionally collect Snowmen...but I apparently have quite an affection for them that I didn't realize.

An older lady I worked with at Burger King, when I was high school, gave this reindeer to me!  She did crafts and sold at craft shows...that might have been when my true love of crafts took off!

The sign was from a blog with free printable...but I can't remember WHOSE!  If you do, let me know and I'll give credit!

This one was just scrapbook papers.

This little guy lights up (with a nightlight style light bulb)...LOVE him...not sure why I didn't take a picture with his light on.

Well, I hope enjoyed this little tour or our snowmen home!! :)

Since we will be driving Wednesday evening and Thursday and spending time with our family in Dallas, this will be my last post until after Christmas.  So, I hope each and everyone of you and your families have a VERY Merry Christmas!!! 


  1. I love all your decorations-- especially your snowmen! My mama collects snowmen too.

  2. You did just a super-duper job with all the decorations. I love the way you even changed out your curtains...what attention to detail. Have a good and safe trip and enjoy you holiday with your family. Merry Christmas!

  3. LUUUUVLY! Well done my friend!

    Many Christmas Blessings,

  4. Looks lovely - all traditional and all. I think it really does show the Christmas spirit. Even though I like neutrals and white I can not imagine not putting the kids COLORFUL tree up. It just wouldn't be Christmas without all that color.
    Have a safe trip to the motherland- TEXAS.
    And thanks for your kind words on my blog post. They mean so much to me.

  5. You have some really lovely decorations. Your tree is beautiful!

  6. Erin,

    I just wanted to give you a heads-up that I sent you an email. Will you please let me know if you haven't received it? Thank you!

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

  7. Wow you really pulled out all the stops for the fab Christmas decor. Wishing you a Happy New Year !
