as i said in my last post, today was the day of the holiday homes tour & boutique! i absolutely love touring other people's/modeled homes that are wonderfully decorated for the holiday season. all of the profits from the ticket admission went to a non-profit organization called rediscover, that helps families and children who are affected by mental illness or substance abuse. although before thanksgiving is a tad early for so much christmas decor (yes, i did it myself! but, i didn't think everyone else did too!), walking through these beautiful homes made me want to go past the limit of "too-much" this year. my cats will not allow that though!
all of the homes, themselves, could have just been walked through without the christmas decoration the home that i loved the decoration was the first one we toured, which i have no pictures of because i was unsure if we could photograph inside! almost every decoration was a "do-it-yourself" from a vintage or scarp piece. this house gave me so much inspiration, not just for the holiday season, but to decorate when i move into my next living space. i am hoping to go on another holiday home tour before this christmas season is over!
