Holiday Decor Week: Nancy

Dec 14, 2013

Greetings! My name is Nancy and I am a transplant from Canada married to a Montanian who I love and adore with all my heart and soul. My husband and I live with our labradoodle Milly in California while our three married children and four grandchildren live in various parts of Montana.  We have lived in California for 20 months and are loving every single day of it!

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year.  Thanksgiving in Canada is celebrated in October and my family has always put up Christmas decorations the day after Remembrance (aka: Veterans) Day.  Since moving to California the inside of my house has been decorated for Christmas on November 12th, while the outside has been decorated for Thanksgiving/Harvest until American Thanksgiving has ended.  My parents live in Victoria, BC and even now (my Dad is 90, my Mum is 82) when spending Christmas with my parents, I wake at around 5 am, go screaming into their bedroom and say “Santa’s been here, Santa’s been here … GET UP!!!”, to which my Dad always rolls his eyes, but deep down, we all know its the start to a great family day together.

Throughout the year my husband and I are always working on projects together. We designed the “Rustic American Flag” shown in my photos, we restyled the foyer table (which started out as a 1970′s oak dresser) and we are in the process of making a decorative art piece using collected keys, wire & reclaimed redwood!

My American life is a wonderful treasure that I cherish, our life in California is an adventure around every corner and our first official Christmas is being approached with awe & amazement (our house was in a flux of renovations for the first 12 months – so I don’t count is as our first Christmas!). Merry Christmas from our house to yours and may 2014 bring you all of the best that life has to offer.

The smell of a freshly cut tree, colorful shining lights, nostalgic ornaments and pretty wrapped presents, there is so much that is truly magical about Christmas. It makes me so happy to see how everyone who celebrates Christmas does so in their own special way and I am thankful for our guest contributors who have allowed us to take a peak into their home, family traditions and even shared some of their best holiday tips. As we reach the 3/4 mark of Holiday Decor Week I am very pleased to welcome guest contributor, Trish Hunt.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  I hope you are enjoying Holiday Decor Week!  I love seeing all of your decorations, it really gets me into the spirit and inspires me to add new decorations each year.

Our house is all decorated for Christmas and I love snuggling up on the couch with Harper after work to enjoy the lights.  My mercury glass tree collection takes the lead in my dining room and my living room is filled with red, white, and silver.  I am loving the red and white striped rug under the coffee table in the living room, it’s from one a Kuzak’s Closet Estate Sale!   The rest of the rooms feature vintage signs and a little sparkle and shine.  Enjoy a peek into my home!

Holiday Decor Week: Karen

I confess. I’ve been wracking my brain trying to come up with something interesting to share for my bio. Something along the lines of “after a brief career with the Radio City Rockettes, I spent two years in Paris working on my indie film ‘Bread and Water’ which later won …” but, darn it all, my life is tragically (and blissfully) mundane! I am married with two beautiful daughters. I work as a freelance writer and seller of everything vintage. In my spare time I garden and read books by PD James, Anne Lamott and Henri Nouwen. Between it all I try to keep both of my blogs Hunting for Vintage and Lion & Lamb Vintage current! I love Christmas though my decorating style is understated. Well, really understated. I like to create little vignettes. I tuck ornaments in unexpected places. And, try for a bit of whimsy.
