{My House} Christmas Decor: Part 1

We’re in the homestretch now for Christmas, and I have to keep reminding myself since I’m surrounded by palm trees and cacti here in the desert. I am anxious to be reunited with my husband and eldest son who arrive tomorrow.

What do you do when as a decor blogger, every day you immerse yourself in lovely interior design inspiration, decorating ideas, and renovation stories and feel your own humble attempts at home decor are far from blogworthy?

Well, you seriously consider just playing it safe and simply avoid posting images of your renovated, unfussy, un-fancy place which would open you up to scrutiny and criticism. And then you remember you are among friends. You decide ‘Dude. When has a little criticism ever stopped you from taking risks and entering the arena?’

So here are shots around the house in 2016 and 2015, and you’ll see I favor handmade, simple, Scandinavian-inspired decor (that’s what I grew up with), twinkly lights, and scored-from-the yard holiday greenery for my own home. Each year I change it up a little, and this year was different since I wasn’t home to decorate at Thanksgiving OR at Christmas since we are with family in Arizona. I’ll share pics when I can of holiday 2017.

Thanks for being my friend and supporting this blog in big and small ways. Part 2 is right here.

Let’s go inside my home.

Part 2 is right here.

Friends, far and near,
and those whom I have yet to meet in the flesh,
I wish you light and love this Christmas.

Though this site speaks very much to
lovely interiors, renovation, and transformation,
I desire for it to evolve and reflect the beauty of peaceful living
we all so desperately need to sustain us as we grow.

My gaze is directed outside the window where a newly planted orange tree
is taking root this very moment, and I’m sending its fresh promise and
this sunshine across the miles to your heart and soul…

I independently selected products in this post—if you buy from one of my links, I may earn a commission.

Peace to you right where you are.

    Truly lovely! I am so glad I recently found your blog! I am pinning ideas and gathering inspiration for a not-so-distant future downsizing/lightening (“Swedish death cleanse”, anyone? Look it up! It’s not as morbid as it sounds– haha), and your photos bring me such peace and light. I think I have pinned more from you than from anyone. Peace and joy and light to you, and merriest of desert Christmases!

      I will have to look up the cleanse, Lisa! I’m so glad you are discovering what your heart is drawn to, and I hope this blog continues to bring you joy. Your kind words have brightened my morning in the desert where it is overcast. Thank you for the peace and light. xox
