Be Inspired #169 Home for Christmas and A Winner

Yikes, it's Friday already. We have less than a week until Christmas, but I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. I'm not ready, there are still gifts that haven't arrived, let alone get them all wrapped! Did I say "Yikes" already? ... at least the snow has melted and we have a good forecast for Christmas Week.

There have been so many wonderful Christmas Home Tours, I feel like I've just seen a few of them. I started a new Pinterest Board to save and keep track of them, but then I'm way behind on that too! Here are a few great links of your Christmas Home Tours from last week. If you haven't seen these links, believe me there is a ton of wonderful inspiration.

 and for everyone that parties here each week!

    8. Hello Debra... all of these homes are so pretty... I've been a bit intimidated to show more of mine this year... mine doesn't really change much year to year... but I am all about traditions, so I guess that is okay... we are in the midst of yet another blizzard... nice for Christmas Day... but we need a break from the snow and cold for a while!... thank goodness for internet shopping!... and UPS guys!... off to visit today's links... xoxo Julie Marie

    11. Such gorgeous home tours and Christmas scenes! I think Gold and White were the official colors of this Holiday season. One more Christmas Tour shared here. I shared my "Keeping It Real Holiday Home Tour". My home lovingly decorated, but with some "this is how we live" touches :) Have a beautiful and wonderful Christmas with your family. Thank you for hosting such a beautiful party. -Karen

    33. Thank you for featuring my new kitchen, Debra. I hope you get your gifts all wrapped. It seems like I'm always nervously waiting for a few last minute gifts to arrive in the mail, worried they won't come in time. But they always do, and then I'm up till the wee hours on Christmas Eve helping Santa wrap them! Merry Christmas!
