    I love it all! I especially love that your home is decorated beautifully but not over done. Your fireplace mantel is so pretty and I love the view through the passageway. :)

  6. Tara what beautiful decorating this is. Your home is warm and inviting without being over done. You are a tasteful decorator. And the whole house is so kid friendly full of special little touches placed throughout. I know you’ll enjoy the holiday season in your beautiful home. (And don’t get me started on those gorgous floors which are so full of warmth!!)

    Tara, I know that I’ve said this before, but your house is so beautiful!
    Y’all have done such amaking work and I LOVE how your home is decorated like a real house for Christmas! It’s the kind that you want to go spend the holidays in with your family, so lovely and cozy. Seriously, if you put it on the market, I would buy it! Beautiful job!
    BTW, your greeting picture is adorable and was a great idea 😉

      Wow Karen, thank you! I appreciate your comments so much. That is my hope for our house, that it would be cozy and welcoming and that our family and friends will want to come and visit:). Thanks for the comment about my greeting picture. I was definitely on the fence about putting it in:). Can’t wait to see your holiday tour on Friday!

    Hi — I agree with everyone – all your decorating is beautiful; more so because it’s filled with love and handed-down items or things you’ve made. However, what I noticed from the get-go is how clean and fresh your home looks when you’ve got 4 children and a huge dog! How in the world do you do it? Even if you cleaned it up just for the photos, it’s much more than that. This is a well-taken-care-of home and I’m amazed – none of my friends with children have homes this put-together. Kudos for that alone and tons of appreciation for a Christmas tour filled with your spirit!!!!

    Happy Holidays – MMR

      Hi Margaret, your comments about my home are incredibly sweet and I appreciate them so very much. I will share a secret with you, my sink was full of dirty dishes when I took pictures of the kitchen:). I have been de-cluttering here like crazy the last few months which has been a huge help to keep my house in order. Less stuff, less to pick up! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful Holiday Season and take care, Tara

    Tara, I’ve always thought your home was lovely, but it’s especially so at Christmas. You’ve done a wonderful job on the decorating and it’s so nice to hear someone else say that they keep decorating simple. Me, too! This was a wonderful tour, and I’m sure you and your family are now enjoying your efforts!

      Thank you so much for your sweet comments Sharon! Decorating for me isn’t fun if it’s too complicated or takes too much time:). I finished my decorating much earlier this year than ever before and it feels great to be mostly done! I can’t wait to check out your holiday tour! Take care, Tara

    Gorgeous! Love all the wreaths, especially the book ages one. I have been looking for one to hang in front of a huge mirror and so far that has been my favorite. I love also the sign above the mantel. Merry Christmas!

    Hi Tara, first time to your blog. Your home is stunning! Love old homes. So much character. And absolutely love anyone who has a dog that not only needs the sofa but a pillow as well! :) Verse at the end is perfection. Merry Christmas!

    Wow Tara….those fireplaces! And the floors in the living room…are those original? I think my favorite parts of the decor are your tree and the wreaths on the windows. I love that look! So fitting for a farmhouse too!

    Tara,
    Your home is beautiful and so welcoming. It could be used as a movie set for one of Meryl Streep’s movies.
    Have you ever thought of a butler’s pantry between the kitchen and the dining room? I can just see your beautiful collections displayed behind glass front cabinets.
    Thanks for such great posts!

      Thank you for your incredibly sweet comments about my home Mechelle! It’s so funny that you would mention a butler’s pantry because I have been trying to talk my husband into opening up the former doorway in our dining room which leads into our laundry room to make one:). So, I love that idea:). Thanks for stopping by and take care, Tara
