Need Decorating Inspiration?

Need Christmas decorating inspiration? Fast? Take a few hours, more if you can spare it, and go blog hopping. Leap right off from here as I have some of the finest blogs listed ever!

I'm going to show you what a morning of copying did for me. If you click on the photos, you'll see just whom I am copying, but I'll also link to each of my inspirations at the bottom of this post. Perhaps this could be a little quiz. I LOVE quizzes. See if you can figure out where I found each idea. Okay, I digress.

This is one I copied from a Christmas Home Tour I took a few years ago. Finally remembered it! I love the aroma of the evergreen as the tree is a big old fake. These are on each window throughout the house.

I'm off on Nonni duty today. This time I have the little one and he's coming here to play with me and keep me company while I bake cookies.

Hope you have a fun day, too!

**Thanks to the following bloggers: Melissa, Suzanne, Mary, and Catherine!


  1. You've done a great job dressing up that chandelier. In fact, you've actually used Macy's idea of using bunches of poinsettias. I've got a pic of Macy's chandelier on my blog today. Everything looks really great. Now I've got to get busy decorating.

  2. Hi Vee,

    I wanted to invite you to Hospitality Lane for a quick contest/giveaway...


  3. I'm with you Vee, I love to see what others are doing and get inspiration from them...I love the "Believe" signs, too!

  4. Vee, I love the tea cups hanging from your light, it is so cute.
    Do enjoy your nonni day. . .and good luck with those cookies.

  5. It all looks so nice especially the snow out your window. Have a great day baking cookies and being Nonni.


  6. I think I might try using poinsettias on my light too. Actually, I'll have to ask my husband to do it as the table will need to be moved and a stepladder employed. The look is so pretty that the effort will be worth it.

  7. That pretty snow makes it look even more like Christmas. I love the way you even incorporated the decorations into your lighting. Gorgeous!

  8. Everything is beautiful...can I jump through my computer and come there to be with you and Noni for the day? Have a wonderful day Vee!

    Christmas Hugs,
    Kathi :)

  9. You have a gorgeous blog. I love those teacups used in the Christmas decor. xoxo

  10. Ooooo thank you so much! I love the idea of bringing a little fresh pine into the house. The little gingham ribbon is perfect.

  11. Vee, Thanks for the link again! I love the teacups and all the other Christmas ideas!

  12. All looks wonderful - I've no idea where you poached your ideas, but I might poach a few from you...
    ; )

  13. On second thought (and look), that is Melissa's idea for decorating with cookie cutters. Isn't she clever?!

  14. Hi Vee!
    Oh, I just love your trimmings! :) they are so much fun this time of year. Bloglandia is amazing it? Where else could women from around the globe come and share on a daily basis? ARe you floating away today? We are getting rain, rain, rain. School was even delayed this morning from ice. Yuck!

  15. There's a lot of inspiration out there. Love the chandelier!


  16. Decorations all look so nice.
    Have fun baking. I baked today too.

  17. Everything looks so pretty! I especially like the idea of putting the evergreen in the windows. I hope you have a wonderful day.

  18. I love the little greenery in the windows, what a great idea!

  19. Everything looks so pretty, and cozy too! Bloggers have the best ideas.

    You have lots of snow already -- none here as yet.

    Enjoy cookie making Nonni! :-)

  20. I'm a copy cat too...LOL.

    LOVE the greenery on the windows with the red and white ribbon...

  21. Looks wonderful and festive here!

  22. Posts like these are exactly why I have given you an award...come to my place and pick it up

  23. How did I miss this post yesterday...I thought you were off sick! But no...you were busy decorating. Copying is good...it is my M.O.

  24. Surprised there are so few outside lights your way. Masses here and the trend was difinitely copied from the States with Home Alone.
