Hi and surprise! I’m the surprise house today on the holiday housewalk and I’m so thrilled that Jennifer Rizzo included me this year! The ladies participating are so talented and the tours have totally blown me away so far. I mean, how amazing is Laura’s beautiful home over at Finding Home?
I guess it’s my turn now, so come on in!
If you’ve never stopped by before, welcome! I’m Kelly and my little sidekick down there is Buddy – he keeps me company while my munchkins are at school.
We live on a lake in wintry Michigan and my 2 kids are counting down the sleeps til Christmas.
Come on thru the entry and into the kitchen (or stop here and print off this free holiday Joy to the World printable).
Don’t mind the stray pine needles in your cereal bowl…
Swing over into the family room where our flocked tree went old school with popcorn garland, pain-stakingly hand strung by me and joyfully consumed by Buddy off the bottom of the tree.
Our mantel is wishing you a cozy Merry Christmas this year, I spill the details on how to make your own sign here.
Popcorn and hot chocolate (extra sprinkles) are a must after sledding outside. My thrift store pillows make it extra cozy.
My Advent Definition printable reminds of the real reason for the season.
Rudolf here is keeping watch over the tablescape, making sure all the munchkins eat their veggies.
I was so excited to decorate our new sunroom addition for the first time, we have been hanging out here every weekend enjoying the lake view before it freezes over.
I love these gorgeous Vermont White Spruce wreaths from Balsam Hill.
My window Christmas card display is just waiting for all our friends and families smiling faces to arrive in the mail.
One last Christmas sign keeps our water skis company until the lake thaws again in the spring.
Thanks for stopping by – I hope you have a very blessed and merry Christmas!
Be sure to head to stop 17, House of Belonging! Or take the tour from the very beginning starting over at Jennifer Rizzo, you don’t want to miss a single house!
