    Loved browsing your blog; I just came across it today. I was wondering if you had a source for the Wonderful counselor, mighty God, Prince of Peace framed art shown in one of the above pictures? I would love to purchase one. Thank you! BJ

    Wow, I can appreciate all the love and attention you put into decorating your home. Gorgeous! I especially love the little “snow globe” you made.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful home decked out for the season. I love the various jars and I still admire that lovely suspended window pane. Thanks for sharing your printable gift tags too.

    How do you do it?! Beautiful! you are so inspiring!

  6. Michelle December 15, 2011 at 8:16 pm #

    I love every little detail! I think my favorite part is your little glass jar with the snow and chair!
    Happy Christmas!

    I have a question for some of you! Where do you find your old book pages or sheet music? I’d love to do the wreath, some of the ornaments in the tutorial…where do you get the pages for free or cheap?? Thank you!

  8. Jeannie-JB December 14, 2011 at 9:50 am #

    Your home is sooo lovely, and you are such a talented graphic artist. Thank you so much for the downloadable art print. You have given us another way to keep “Christ” in Christmas and that’s always a good thing. Thanks again.

  9. Holly December 14, 2011 at 7:50 am #

    Lovely, great use of that great room space! :) Blessings!

  10. Shaunna December 14, 2011 at 7:27 am #

    It looks wonderful, Emily!!!! Love all the subtle and elegant touches…beautiful.

  11. Jennifer Rizzo December 13, 2011 at 11:50 pm #

    If I haven’t said it already, I completely adore,and admire you home! You have such a fantastic eye and I want to steal a thousand ideas form you! Thank you so much for joining in on the holiday tour!

  13. Pam December 13, 2011 at 8:48 pm #

    Oh, Emily! I simply LOVE your home!

  14. linda December 13, 2011 at 7:57 pm #

    To all those who have commented about the “Holy Night” print, I just discovered that yes!!! this is a print that Emily has in her shop! Just click on her shop above to purchase the pdf file.

  15. sara December 13, 2011 at 6:10 pm #

    absolutely gorgeous! I especially love the “O Holy Night” print and the hot cocoa station! I would love to know what’s in the bowls on the coffee table…looks like a story there! :)

  16. Rebecca December 13, 2011 at 6:02 pm #

    simply beautiful! I would love your “oh holy night” print {that’s my all time fav christmas song} are you selling those?

  17. Vicki December 13, 2011 at 2:38 pm #

    Everything is wonderful. Why am I not surprised! You have the perfect eye for the right touch in all the right places, always knowing where to edit and add. I am always touch by the simplicity yet attention to detail. If that even makes sense to you. I wish you many blessings at this time of celebration of our Saviour’s birth. I imagine at your home many warm fires, much hot chocolate and much laughter. My silly adult girls tease me unmercifully now and all their growing up years about an ornament I stitched from a kit when I was in my early twenties that still hangs on our tree today that says “The music of Christmas is Laughter”. They think it so dorky. But you know, now as a grandmother I think it is true more than ever. Most Merry Christmas to you! You are a precious gift from God to all of us!

  18. Collette Douglas December 13, 2011 at 2:14 pm #

    NEEEEED that holy night print! Tell me where I can order?!?!?!? Love your sweet home and the way you share your holiday warmth!

  19. Jen December 13, 2011 at 12:54 pm #

    it looks beautiful and elegant as always! :)

  20. Stacey December 13, 2011 at 11:28 am #

    I found your blog from a link on Pinterest, and I have to agree with everyone else- I absolutely love your home and your decorating style. Amazing! And I also would love to get the “Holy Night” print. Can you let me know where you got it or if it is yours? Thanks!

  21. Rachael December 13, 2011 at 11:20 am #

    I love the “Holy Night” print, Emily! Your home is beautiful, and especially lovely at Christmas! Where can we find the print? I’ve already put up the Isaiah print, and I love it! :)

  22. Nicole December 13, 2011 at 9:31 am #

    LOVE your home… Would you mind sharing where you got your 4 tiered etagere that is in your bathroom? Thanks!

  23. Kate S. December 13, 2011 at 8:37 am #

    Stunning! I love it all – especially your wall color – it makes for the perfect backdrop. You have a lovely flair!

    Amazing. Unique. Beautiful!

  26. KK December 12, 2011 at 5:12 pm #

    I love the “Holy Night” print. Is it an original of yours? If not, I’d love to know where to find it.

  27. Kacey December 12, 2011 at 3:46 pm #

    Stunning. Love, love, LOVE it all!

  28. Madaline Meatte December 12, 2011 at 3:39 pm #

    i have to say that there isn’t any other blog that i study and dote over more than yours. i’ve probably read every single post, and patiently wait for the email in my box from you. i love EVERYTHING about your blog and the things that you post.

    you are an inspiration to me and my shop, and I thank you for all the amazing ideas!

  29. bevy December 12, 2011 at 3:24 pm #

    such a festive holiday house! my favorites are the wrapped gifts and the O Holy Night print framed!

  30. Jaelyn December 12, 2011 at 2:52 pm #

    Love the Christmas art prints! Did you design those?

  31. Bridget Larsen December 12, 2011 at 2:47 pm #

    You have such a beautiful house

  32. Jenni Phenicie December 12, 2011 at 1:55 pm #

    Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  33. pat longfield December 12, 2011 at 1:53 pm #

    Your home is so beautiful – especially all decorated for Christmas. It looks so warm, cozy and inviting…. I Love everything about it.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family

  34. kasey December 12, 2011 at 1:52 pm #

    I just got some great ideas from those pictures! Love the paper chains hanging from the window – so simple and cute. I love making holiday decorations that don’t cost a ton of money.

  35. Alecia Shannon December 12, 2011 at 1:29 pm #

    I love it ALL!!! Where do you find your cute ribbon…I love the ribbon on the door & on the glass cake stand…sooo pretty!

  36. Keely December 12, 2011 at 1:29 pm #

    So, so beautiful. Can you tell me what fabric your red dot pillow is? I love it!

  37. Jane December 12, 2011 at 1:18 pm #

    Your home is so beautiful! I espcially love the large hanging window as a partition- it really accentuates that opening, yet creates a “soft” separation! Also, love the half wall re-done with old book pages! Can you tell me, how did you affix them – wallpaper paste, or something else? I have a wall (and a stack of vintage Funk & Wagnall encyclopedias) that I am itching to make over!

  38. Heidi Biggs December 12, 2011 at 1:14 pm #

    Exquisite! When are the magazines coming for their photo shoot? Thanks for sharing–warmth just oozes from these pictures and it’s inspiring. Merry, merry Christmas!

  39. Heather December 12, 2011 at 12:39 pm #

    I think I am move’n in!!

  40. Lindsay December 12, 2011 at 12:30 pm #

    It is all so beautiful and so homey! I love every part of it. I love the “L” on the door – so creative rather than the traditional wreath. My favorite part is probably all of the awesome word art around your home that reminds of the true meaning of Christmas. Amazing job fluffing for Christmas!

  41. Nikki Tait December 12, 2011 at 12:27 pm #

    I love your house and it’s even better for the Holidays. I love everything that you do. You have such a classy way of making things pretty. You inspire me. When putting things together I often ask my self “how would JDC do it.” I came up blank on a cheap gift idea for my kids teachers for Christmas. I would love your input! Any ideas?

  42. Melissa December 12, 2011 at 12:26 pm #

    …just beautiful! what a lovely, warm and decorated home. :)

  43. Emily Jones December 12, 2011 at 12:23 pm #

    Your house is beautiful! I wish I had even just an inkling of your design eye! I love the ‘O Holy Night’ print. That is my favorite carol. Do you know if there is a place I could get it?

  44. Lisa December 12, 2011 at 12:11 pm #

    You have such a beautiful home! I love all of the wonderful touches you put together to decorate it for the holidays! Just gorgeous!!!

  45. teresa December 12, 2011 at 11:44 am #

    Your home looks stunning for Christmas- =)

  46. Molly Anderson December 12, 2011 at 11:40 am #

    LOVE your wrapping! Such a cute candy cane jar with the green ribbon. And, gorgeous tree!

  47. Jenna December 12, 2011 at 11:38 am #

    Very, very lovely!!! What a beautiful home you have.

  51. Erin December 12, 2011 at 10:38 am #

  52. Dana December 12, 2011 at 10:37 am #

    Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous! Your home could seriously be in a magazine! Love the handmade touches – especially the hot cocoa and marshmallow jars :)

  53. Kelly December 12, 2011 at 10:36 am #

    *sigh* I LOVE all your style!! I could just move right in. Also, love the “L” print on the stairs. Is that new? And the cute snow globe idea at your front entry!! Clever and easy to do. I think I will have to borrow that idea. As always, thank you for the inspiration and glimpse in your beautiful home. God gave you talent, girl!

  54. {darlene} December 12, 2011 at 10:29 am #

    just stunning, emily! {it made me start singing: “have yourself a Damask little Christmas….”} Your home looks breathtaking! you have set the stage, filled with beauty and celebration! Here are prayers to your family for many fun-filled, joyous, blessed, happy, squealing moments. Merry, merry Christmas, emily!!

  55. Rebekah Lynch December 12, 2011 at 10:26 am #

    What a beautiful home…. Thanks for sharing.. Could you please tell me the color of gray that you used for your living room and kitchen? It looks like the perfect color. Thanks!

  56. Sharon @ Lilikoi Joy December 12, 2011 at 10:17 am #

    Wow! Absolutely beautiful! Thank you for sharing. Love the hot cocoa and marshmallow jars, the tree, the prints – everything!

  57. Jordan G @ The Happy Homebodies December 12, 2011 at 9:57 am #

    Your house looks beautiful for the holidays! I love the stars hanging from the chandelier– we have something similar hanging from our trees in our backyard, but it’s too cold to enjoy them right now. I also love that giant window you have by your dining room– I don’t think I have ever noticed that in your other home photos before. It’s such a cool touch!

  58. amber P December 12, 2011 at 9:54 am #

    Your home looks beautiful! Where, may i ask, did you get the O Holy Night print? Did you design that?

  59. Delishhh December 12, 2011 at 9:54 am #

    Just stunning – love your home and what you have done and how you have decorated it – very nice!

  60. Pamela Bates/Mercantile Muse December 12, 2011 at 9:53 am #

    emily, your home is beautiful. love your living room. so elegant, yet it appears so comfortable at the same time.

    i am really LOVING the candy canes in the jar. I have some on my tree, but I may have to add a jar somewhere because it’s just so darn sweet.

  61. Sherri December 12, 2011 at 9:53 am #

    Oh my gosh…can I come spend Christmas with you?? LOVE your photos, love your decorations…everything just has that special magic touch. Perfect – my favorite is the Piano shot…just lovely. I wish you and your family the happiest of Holidays! xo

  62. Kacee December 12, 2011 at 9:49 am #

  63. Pam December 12, 2011 at 9:38 am #

    That was so fun to go through and see all of your touches. Love the jar of hot choc. & jar of marshmallows!

  64. Jaime @ Queen of the Creek December 12, 2011 at 9:34 am #

    Your home is lovely… and so merry!

    Please talk to me (or point me in right direction) about your wall behind the piano. I’ve been wanting to do something similar, but wasn’t sure how to go about doing it! The husband wasn’t keen on the idea of modge podge! lol…

  65. Lily & Camelia Photography December 12, 2011 at 9:33 am #

    Of all of the homes I see in blog land (holidays and throughout the year), I always find yours one of my favorites … it is so tasteful, classic and welcoming. Great inspiration!

  66. Gayla December 12, 2011 at 9:32 am #

    Absolutely stunning! Thank you for giving us a tour.

  67. Catherine December 12, 2011 at 9:25 am #

    Can you just adopt my family so we can live there with you?? What I love about your home is that not only is it really beautiful but it also has such a warm, welcoming and homey feeling to it.

  68. Emily December 12, 2011 at 9:25 am #

    This is so gorgeous, the perfect Monday inspiration I needed :)

  69. Teresa (Our Corner House) December 12, 2011 at 9:24 am #

    Oh your home looks lovely. Very beautiful and cozy. :)

  70. Diana December 12, 2011 at 9:22 am #

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! It is absolutely inspiring! I’m sure you probably posted previously about your “O Holy Night” framed display but you can you remind me as to how I can find it again. I would love to copy that for all of my in-laws for Christmas.

  71. Jo-Anna December 12, 2011 at 9:20 am #

    Gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous! I love your clean and classy style!

  72. Sarah Comley Caldwell December 12, 2011 at 9:14 am #

    I love your home decorating! I want to chime in on one of your decorating pieces of fabulousness – did you design the “O Holy Night” print? If you did, can we purchase it? If you didn’t, who did? Thanks so much!

  73. MJ of Lucky 7 Design December 12, 2011 at 9:11 am #

    You always have a beautiful home, but I especially love how you sprinkled some holiday love throughout. The touches of red are stunning.

  76. Jane December 12, 2011 at 8:56 am #

    Is the O Holy Night printable available? I love that and it looks like it would go great with our main tree in the living room!

  77. Lisa @ grey luster girl December 12, 2011 at 8:55 am #

    Beautiful as always!

  84. Lynne December 12, 2011 at 7:07 am #

    Darling Emily,
    Your Christmas home is so beautiful! Saturday, I went over to Chrislyn, Jason, and Holland’s home, your “Prince of Peace” printable was so beautifully framed in their library! You have given our homes and hearts many “Emily hugs” over the past year. I wish you and your beautiful family the best of Christmas blessings and joy!

  85. Shelley December 12, 2011 at 6:49 am #

    Oh my goodness Emily, it’s so gorgeous!!! I love how you have special touches throughout your home. That will be my goal next time – I ran out of gas this year :D

  86. Angela December 12, 2011 at 6:26 am #
