Today wraps up my Holiday Home Tour with a peek into my sitting room right off of the master bedroom. This is a small space with soaring ceiling. Even with the tall ceilings, it’s cozy and warm and I am usually the only one that uses it which is perfectly fine with me. Chick flicks, HGTV, Bravo and Hallmark on repeat all day every day. This is definitely a no news zone!
Holiday Home Tour
I’m still loving the shiplap on the fireplace wall. It really helps break up the deep, dark navy walls. The mantel is dressed with a Christmas swag that is made of metal and I adore it not only because it is fabulous but it was a gift from my sweet friend who knows me so well! I think of her every time I walk into this space!
Switching up the look of the glass jars for each season is a quick and easy decor change. The frosted pine cone branches that I used are from Michaels. It’s a simple change but makes the space look new each time I change it out. The wooden NOEL letters were moved up to mantle last year. They are placed in a vintage chicken feeder. I’m keeping them in my space so I don’t have to walk into the kitchen and see LEON spelled out from an unknown prankster.
My flocked Christmas Tree was purchased from Walmart a few years back and I have to say it is one of my favorites. It is really flocked nicely and it’s a breeze to put together. It is so lightweight and easy to handle. I picked up another tree from Walmart last year for our sunroom and it is also a great tree. For about $120, the quality is topnotch!

Sitting Room Home Tour
I’ve shared my vintage Bell Atlantic ladder before and I bought it specifically with Christmas in mind. I knew that I wanted to hang vintage stocking from it. She was a bit rough when I bought her and some doubted my purchase but she cleaned up nicely! Love, love, love it!
I ordered the vintage stockings from ebay because they remind me of the ones my mom, dad and brothers had growing up. They even have a glitter mom and dad glued on them just like my mom did with all of ours. I am thinking of stringing some Christmas lights on the ladder, I still have 5 days to do it, right? Hmmm, maybe I should hang some lights tomorrow!
I wish that time would slow down so we could just sit back and enjoy the season. I do like the hustle and bustle of the Holidays but I am ready to slow down for a bit! I am officially done wrapping and will do some more baking over the weekend which I enjoy doing. Fingers crossed that my ebay package arrives tomorrow. It’s been delayed twice. I cannot wait for it to come! I have become completely obsessed with tracking it! I will post a picture of it on Instagram if it ever shows up on my doorstep! It was a total impulse buy and I cannot wait to share it with you in all its vintage glory!
I hope you all are enjoying the season with family and friends and have some time to take it all in this weekend before the chubby man in red flies through the sky on Monday night!
Until Next Time,
