Home Sweet Home #45

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!   I am winding down the decorating but, I have been a little influenced by the German blogs with their natural materials and Shabby Chic/Nordic flair.  I can not get enough of the natural and rustic Christmas. 

My paperwhites started blooming today!  I can't believe I got them to bloom on my first try at growing them.
Last week's Home Sweet Home was another fantastic party!  Many beautiful homes with a lot of Christmas inspiration.   I am going to show more features than usual because I thought there was so many great decorating ideas for Christmas.  You all are so talented!

First, Elaine at Sunny Simple Life  showed off her adorable kitchen cabinet decorated for Christmas.  

Girl In Pink  gave a little holiday home tour that was gorgeous!!

The very talented Rosemary of Ozma of Odds showed off a table makeover and a Nordic church candelabra she made.

 Rene of Miss Gracie's House showed off her Christmas decorating.

Chari over at Happy To Design  showed off her Christmas decorating which was also gorgeous!

Erika over at Be Book Bound  showed off her Dickens inspired Christmas.  

Kristen over at Sophia's showed off how to make a small tree look grand perfectly.

And last, Marianne at Country Glamour Home showed off her beautiful bannister.

 Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!  It is awesome to have you here!  
I will join these ladies today: 
Inspiration Friday At The Picket Fence
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Fridays Unfolded  at Stuff and Nonsense
Potpourri Friday at 2805
Farmhouse Friday  at LaurieAnna's Vintage Home
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
