White Christmas

As with the white pumpkins, I have a hankerin' for all things white when it comes to Christmas decorating. I can't do it this year, because that'd mean all new ornaments, but perhaps one day...








Okay, so I threw in a little blue for good measure. That's pretty, too, isn't it? If you haven't seen Pat's tree (Back Porch Musings), you need to. She's incorporated blue into her Christmas decorating in such beautiful ways.

That's beautiful, but just too calm and sophisticated for me. I gotta have color and cutesy, tacky stuff! Old stuff, new stuff, red stuff, blue stuff!

Pat has some very pretty decorations! I love the blue as well. My tree is done in blue and silver every year..

Those pictures are great! I love the look of white. Clean and crisp like that. I have always stuck to the traditional Christmas colors, red and green. I need to branch out more!

I just wanna get my tree UP! :-)

I'm lovin' the Christmas pictures. Thanks. Seein' as I don't subscribe to any decorating mags these days, you are giving me my fix. :-)

I. am. drooling. I LOVE white. I can never have it because of the kids, the dog, and the messy husband, but that would be my dream! Beautiful pics.

I absolutely love it when you share inspirational photos! The stacked mirrors on the mantle. The alternative box instead of tree skirt....lots to take in! ~Mindy

I could see my sister's future home looking just like this. She loves blues and snowflakes... I'm passing on your cute post to her!

Hmmmm...6 children, 2 dogs and a white house.....I don't think any of those pictures will work for us for a while :) I am however ready to start painting our new (old) house in more neutral colors. Apparently the former owner loved the combination of blue floral wallpaper next to orange glazed walls, next to a green wall, next to a red kitchen with yellow countertops, next to.....well, you get the picture. At least our very colorful Christmas tree kind of ties it all together :0)

Thanks so much for the compliment!

Wow, photo #3 really could be your casa!

I am so seeing a Tracey Porter-esque Christmas at your place, though.

Beautiful, my favorite one is the last one. I loved the green of the tree and the black furniture...

Love the photos, a white color scheme is such a beautiful pure and serene look. I do like the photo of the room with the blue walls too.
