{My Holiday Home} in green apple & shades of turquoise

I love CHRISTMAS TIME, there is no other feeling of warmth and excitement and joy then at Christmas. I assume its the memories I have as a child that I cherish. It just feels magical, and with my children I get to re-live it all again. I love their excitement when the Christmas boxes and bins get carried in. They love going through everything and helping mom. I love getting out their stacks of Christmas books and they sure enjoy going through them, especially when I make them some hot cocoa too. 
This year I went for something totally different from the Traditional Red and Green I normally decorate in. I love the traditional colors but since I added chartreuse green and turquoise this year to my home decor, I wanted to stick with those same colors. A lot of the ornies I made too, or I added big ribbon to existing ones I had to give them a fresh new look.
Here are some pictures… and WELCOME TO MY HOLIDAY HOME…..
On the Piano- The large bulbs are from Tai Pan (last year) the poinsettias are from Michael’s, the green pumpkins are from Walmart during Nov. The big white bells are from Tai Pan (last year) the mini snowman and mini santa are from Ace Hardware. The wicker glittery star is from Pier 1. The green pine tree sticks with acorns are from Roberts Crafts (last year) The small silver glittery bulbs are from Roberts Crafts, and the pine cones are from my tree in the back yard.

 

 I added this striped bow to the orn. Ribbon is from Walmart.

 This is a Canvas Corp mini canvas. I hot glued jute to the top and stamped a chevron print to the front.

I also made this snowman orn. I hot glued 3 white cotton balls to the Canvas Corp burlap canvas, added some brown waxed cotton as the scarf and hot glued the striped ribbon to the top.

 berry twigs and glittery turq. branches are from Michaels Crafts. The green wire ribbon is from Tai Pan Trading.

 I made this orn. by adding a circle cut Canvas Corp. Christmas paper, and gluing it to the back of the snowflake orn. The orn is from the $1.00 section at Target.

 here I added large satin ribbon to freshen up the older look of small thin red satin ribbon.

 another orn. I made by hot gluing ribbon to the top of some pine cones I picked off my backyard tree.

and there will be one more post of the rest of my decor later in the week. 
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY COM TODAY, AND SEEING MY HOLIDAY HOME.
