    31 Amazing Christmas Trees to Inspire You

    When I walk into my friends home this time of year I am immediately drawn to their Christmas Tree.  The Christmas tree is the one thing that pretty much everyone who celebrates Christmas has and it’s such fun to see how people decorate them.  I love looking at the color scheme or the children’s ornaments.  Christmas trees really warm my heart, so I have put together 31 amazing Christmas trees to inspire you.     I think the reason I love Christmas trees and seeing how others decorate them is because anything goes!  You can do anything when decorating a tree.  You can use any color scheme, any tree topper,…

    Hello and welcome to the Merry and Bright Home Tour!  I have teamed up with some amazing women to showcase our Christmas decorations in our homes this year.  You can find them all at the end of this post.  Let’s get started!   Entryway First you will notice as you go through my home that I have a thing for Santa’s.  I have them in just about every room and our Entryway is no different.  I moved my potted palm to the floor (it’s kind of getting too big for that shelf anyway) and in it’s place put this Santa to welcome my guests.  In the Harry and David box…

  • The Best Farmhouse Christmas Decor

    The Best Farmhouse Christmas Decor

    We have a rule in my house (mostly instilled by my husband) that no Christmas decor goes up until after Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving happens to be our favorite holiday.  The day after Thanksgiving means it’s time to break out those bins and make a complete mess taking down the Fall decor and bringing in the Christmas decor.  I think my two favorite times of the year to decorate are Christmas and the Fall Season.  Whenever I decorate I find that there are some changes that need to be made, new pillows or a new centerpiece.  Farmhouse Christmas decor is so popular right now and I don’t have much.  Most of my…

    How to Build Industrial Shelves

    I recently participated in the $100 Room Challenge and I created an Industrial coffee bar in my breakfast nook.  Rustic and Industrial looks are very hot right now in home decor.  I searched high and low for a set of shelves and couldn’t find anything.  I needed something that wasn’t very deep due to spacial concerns, I didn’t want any shelves that would crown the kitchen table.  So I decided to build my own.  Here are the directions on how to build industrial shelves. *This post contains affiliate links.     Materials 1X12 foot board in 12 foot length that I had cut at the store down to 3 four foot…
