 Merry Christmas! Does it not feel like you just took down your Christmas decor like 2 months ago? I seriously remember last year's Christmas like it was yesterday. It is just crazy how time flies! I remember when I was young, the days and years lasted forever! I swear time has sped up ;) Well, it's almost December so that means it's that time again for my home tour! I joined up with some wonderful ladies and Carrie from Lovely, Etc to bring you today's tour! This is my first of three! Three! So, be sure to come back later this week for another tour.
The best thing about this tour group, we are giving away a HUGE prize! You can enter to win $600 Paypal cash! Yep! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post to enter :) ...My husband keeps asking me if he can enter. haha. I wish we could! That is some serious cash!

Today I'll be sharing my front room and entry way with you all. I probably say this every year, but I love decorating for Christmas so much! This room has been done for like a month now :) My husband tells me I can't put up any Christmas until Thanksgiving...well, over the years, I keep getting more and more up before then :) One of these years, it will all be up!

 First up, is my front room. I couldn't wait to hang some wreaths on these barn doors when I made them this Spring! They are the best project I have done in years :)

Through these barn doors is my front room which also serves as a guest room and a toy room!

This couch is also a bed that I got from Ikea earlier this year. It was the only way I could get my much wanted white slipcover sofa :) I needed a bed and a couch, so voila!  I went a little minimal on the side table this year, just added a Christmas tree into my basket.

 As for the other side of the room...I have my little Christmas tree.

 This is the one that my kids decorate each year. I don't move any of the balls. It's all theirs! Luckily, it's extremely flocked so you can't tell where the missed spots are :) You can only imagine how good a 1 year old and a 3 years old can do. Actually, I take that back, I think they did awesome!

 I decided to put this tree in a basket I got from Home Goods earlier this year. I tried so many baskets, and none of them worked with this tree except this one! So, this one it was :)

 This faux fireplace is another one of my favorite projects, especially during Christmas! For the mantel, I like to think I kept it simple since it was so easy to put together. Just some trees, wood bells, garland and stockings!

 Oh, and of course, my wood advent calendar! I made this new this year for the space and can't wait to start using it in a few days! Behind the numbers are activities for each day :)

I usually don't do color, at all, but I've slowly started adding more and more into my house, especially during the holidays. And this blanket adds the perfect punch of color and warmth to the space!

 Remember when I said this was a toy room too? Well, that cute little bench hides all sorts of craziness in the form of toys! It's the best purchase I made for this room. It seriously holds so much :)

For the tray, I just went simple with a potted tree and some pine cones.

 That 'welcome' chalkboard sign has been a long standing staple of this room. One of these days I'm sure I'll write something new on it! :)

 The pillows ended up being a mix of Fall and Christmas for me. I really loved the greys I used in my Fall home tour, so I kept with it and added the red and burlap.

 I just love how warm and cozy this room feels with all the Christmas decor in it!

 Now, let's go on to the entryway. I think I'll still be tweaking this space for the weeks to come, but here's how it stands now. I'm a big fan of having the garland on the bottom of the stairs. It's just a fun new take on the whole concept. You can barely see them, but I also have white snowflakes hanging on the stair rail.

 I did have a wreath hanging here, but felt like there were just too many wreaths in this little hall with the two on the barn doors, so I swapped it out for some small snowflakes instead.
