Christmas Living Room
Thank you for your comments on my Christmasy front porch! This is the third year I've hung the skates on the front door and so far no broken glass (fingers crossed!).
Today, I am showing you around our livingroom.
Our village nativity set is on top of our entertainment center.
Along with a lamp, cinnamon stick candles, a small cottage...
and woodland deer.
I bought a roll of live greenery at Walmart for under $9.00 and used it on the mantle, fireplace, entryway, kitchen hutch and front porch.
A cozy corner and a basket of our favorite Christmas books.
We had fun decorating our tree with gold ribbon, red bows, favorite ornaments and lots of candy canes.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit!

Your livingroom decorations are gorgeous. I think my favorite, though, is the dog lounging on the house. It just says "home" to me. :)
How beautiful! That live greenery says Christmas through and through! Love your decor!
How lovely is that Kelli? We are still redecorating our sitting room, and no decorations will go up before the weekend I fear. The tree will go up very last moment as we are waiting till Tam comes home so they can dress the tree together as they always have. I see you have my FAVOURITE quilt on display too. I intend to make one for our bed (in my "spare" time!)
Everything's so pretty, Kelli. And the puppy resting her little head on the couch is so cute. Thanks for sharing it all! :)
That dog has it made!...lol I love your Christmas decorations Kelli! Everything looks warm and homey as always. =o)
It all looks beautiful, and the dog is the perfect touch!
It's just beautiful! I love your decorations.
Love the stockings hung by the chimney with care!
Congratulations for those so
beautiful Christmas decorations!
Kind regards from Heidi's Land.
oh so beautiful - cosy for a cold day/night to just sit in and relax!
Thank you for showing us. Very nice indeed.
Kelli, obviously we don't celebrate Christmas, but I love your living room - so cozy and inviting.
Everything looks wonderful....I love you iceskates on the door....I want some old ones! You don't see them much here. Beth
Love your pictures. My question is that with little ones how long does it stay so neat? I am no way near as neat as you. When I take my pictures to share it has to exclude the messy scenes. When I was a stay at home mom I used to tell my kids "Make your room look like the front on a magazine cover" Ha Ha. They remember those days when I used to the play the game of how many things can you pick up. They would count every little fork and washcloth they folded to win a prize.
Your living room looks beautiful. Love the tree...and the puppy. Your blog is always inspirational.
Love your pictures...I know how hard it is to get good ones as I have been trying. Happy Holidays.
It looks great Kelli! Perfect for Christmas! :)
Beautiful and peaceful Kelli!
I enjoyed your front door as well.
I used to hang a pair of old skates alongside a old wooden sled...
thank you for sharing each day!
Your tree is lovely as so the village. The stockings are hung and love the PEACE.
Hi Kelli! Everything looks sooooo lovely. Really!
I am glad to see that Daisy is resting. We had a hard time keeping our dog down after she got spayed. She was a wild little puppy and we ended up taking her back to the vet because her little tummy got all swollen. It was nothing serious. He just said to keep her quiet. HE! HE!
Thanks for sharing you lovely, homey living room. Debbi
Your decorations are beautiful. I wish we could hang our stocking by the wood stove but we don't have a mantle. Sadie would love to go in our livingroom but with her shedding so much that is one room that's off limits to her.
It looks so cozy. :) I love the puppy dog on the couch. Looks strangely like my house.
It all looks beautiful and so festive. I love red ribbons and candy canes. So do my kids!!
Everything looks simply lovely Kelli! Your living room is so warm and cozy. I think your puppy is enjoying your Christmas decor very much! Not much of a puppy anymore though!
Very pretty, I think I like the scene under the lamp best. You've reminded me to get out my children's Christmas books to display. I do have an old board game called Santa's Special Delivery that I've brought down from the attic.
What a warm and lovely home you have all decked out for Christmas. Thanks for inviting us in.
Sorry I havent been commenting as much..I am trying to catch up on blog reading this morning. Your decorations are beautiful as usual..so Inspiring. I love the sleighs and the Ice Skates on the door are adorable..
Many Blessings and Happy Holidays
It is lovely Kelli and looks so cozy!
Oh I just love it here!! Do you have a spare room for me, he he!!
I adore your living room, the wood work makes it so comfy cozy and the decorating always give me great ideas! I need to doctor up a basket with some Xmas colors to put all our holiday reading in.
Thanks for sharing!
Very pretty. I love your tree!
You living rooms looks so warm and inviting! I love the fresh greenery it always smells so much like Christmas.
How festive it all looks!
Good morning, Kelli -
Your living room looks so peaceful. It's easy to see what you and your family value most at this time of year. A roll of live greens at WalMart? I didn't know - I'll have to check that out. Maybe not for this year but now I've got an idea for next year. ~Adrienne~
Wow, looks like something out of a magazine such as Better Homes & Gardens. Beautiful, and so tranquil!
Looks like our dog (Marley)lounging on your sofa. What breed is yours? We think ours is a Golden Retreiver mix (drop off)tht found us.
BEAUTIFUL!!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful house!!!
Very lovely, Kelli! I especially love your little woodland deer!
Everything is so sweet!! It feels like Christmas in your livingroom!!
Have a great day!!
Your living room looks so beautiful! I especially love the PEACE stocking holders.
Your Golden Retriever just needs a Christmas bow! I will say yours looks quite content on your couch. I love retrievers; they are so loving; just hard to keep dry. We had a Golden Retriever and now we have a yellow Lab Retreiver.
Love the pictures,
Just beautiful Kelli.
Your house looks lovely all decorated up for Christmas.
I'm having a bad case of house envy. Your home is gorgeous.
There's an award for you over at my blog - http://ofbooksandwriting.wordpress.com

The cinnamon sticks look great! What a pretty little scene for an end table.

Kelli, beautiful, cozy and inviting. I love the way your family member is laying on the couch looking at the fireplace. That is so nice. Thanks Kelli, had fun looking at your living room.

I love your tree and mantel! Everything looks beautiful.
I have to agree with your first commentor, Jill who said Daisy adds to the 'homey' look. She's the first thing that caught my eye. Everything looks so festive and cozy. Thanks for the inspiration.
Your living room is so lovely and looks so Christmassy.
So lovely!!! Thanks for the tour. :)
Your Living Room and Front Porch look amazing. I love absolutely everything. Your tree looks wonderful and your mantle gorgeous. You have the most beautiful home. Thanks for sharing.
Oh Kelli, I could curl up in your livingroom and stay there in a corner forever. Always something new to see. I love it!
Lovely! It's such a cozy room with all the wood. You inspired me to post pictures of our holiday rooms, have to do that in days to come.

Do you know? This is my favoriye part. When you show your room redecorated with your reativity. I really love it!
I love that you can hang candy canes on the tree, and the dog is asleep in the couch. My dog would be in the middle of the tree trying to eat that candy!! :)
I'm off tomorrow to buy Cinnamon sticks for my candle holders. Lovely livingroom!
Your home looks so lovely! your tree, mantle all says welcome.
What a beautiful home you have! Great idea on the skates-I have some just like that from my childhood.
Thank you for the Christmas tour!
It's very homey, warm and welcoming. I can just imagine me sitting there with a hot cup of coco and with the head of my dog resting on my knees. It's lovely, Kelli
Your living room looks wonderful. I love your Christmas front porch, too! I like the skates on the door. Cute idea.
Your home and porch are stunning Kelli. I see Miss Daisy is recovering nicely as well :). Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Your livingroom looks so cozy. I love the idea of the Christmas books in a basket and the greenery looks fantastic !!!
Have a great day !!
Your living room looks beautiful.
We are decorating this weekend..
Oh you have a lovely Christmas home! I am so impressed. We are in Southern Arizona so it is so hard to get in the decorating spirit here, sad but true. Like others I love your dog there laying on the couch, it brings a warth and realness to your home. Just beautiful!!
I've never noticed before your lovely, rich wood panels. Your living room is so warm and inviting. And, now I wish I had not given my skates away. What a fun decoration!
Very homey and inviting living room.

I bet at night with all the lights turned off, the tree on, candles lit and a fire going, it's like a little piece of Heaven in your haven. :-)
Many blessings to you for a safe and sound week!

Your living room is great. I always enjoy looking in your home....I love your big windows...down to the floor. We have a basket of Christmas books and magazines to thumb through as well....

It is all so gorgeous, homey and comfortable-looking. I love the lamp on the entertainment center. I always stick holly or berries or something on the lampshades! So fun.
So cozy and inviting! Where did you find the berry garland that you put around the top of your lampshade? I'd love to find some to decorate with!
Wow! Your living room is fabulous! I have that same Home Interior picture over your mantel! Great minds think alike! LOL Be blessed!
Beautiful living room!! It's so warm and inviting! Love the pup sleeping on the couch!
