It's The Shabby Holiday Dining Room And Thank Yous

Hi Everyone~ I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Mine was filled with family, friends, two basketball games, trying to finish Christmas cards and the Rose Bowl Flea Market. There was ALOT going on,but I can't complain, I loved it all. 
And, I am so.... thrilled (and will blog more about it later) my blog was featured in the January issue of ROMANTIC HOMES MAGAZINE!!!!!! 
Here are a few more Holiday Home pics. These are of my dining room. It is the only room not filled with red and green etc. My daughter lovingly calls it  "The Boring Room". Personally, it is my favorite:)
I love the reflection of the white tree in the mirror.
This room has a peaceful feeling. I love my grain sack table runner. It has a light blue stripe down the center which blends so nicely.

I kept my iron urn filled with  shells in the room. I added some icicle picks to make it feel like a winter wonderland. This is on my buffet which also has snow houses that I love.
This is on the buffet. Notice the sunlight coming in the window where the church bell is. I also think you can't have too many bottle brush trees.
The sun lit white tree in the dining room. The kids love decorating this tree. It has so many fun ornaments. Here are a few favorites.
Isn't she sweet?????
Our pink nutcracker ornament. More on nutcrackers in another blog post to come:)
Jingle Bells all lit up........
