The Smith Hotel's Shabby Parisian White Christmas!

Welcome to The Smith Hotel's Shabby Parisian White Christmas House Tour..........

Our front door will be covered with cards and pictures from friends and family. Covering our door has been a long time family tradition. As you can see we are just getting started on it.

My dental cabinet that I got a garage sale for $20 and had to shove in the front passenger set of our VW bug. I was determined to get it home!!

My $1 garage sale trees and the garland that covers the cords was also $1 at the same garage sale. Add some burlap and Presto-not bad for $4! This is in my husband's home office on my buffet that doesn't fit in my kitchen eating area-so he has a buffet in his office. Yes, we do have some interesting places for some of our furniture. (One of these days I will show you what furniture is in our master bathroom).

Our Christmas Tree!!! Now remember this isn't professional decorated but an 11 year old and an 8 year old had lots of work! My picture doesn't do it justice but we think it's Pretty!

My "5" that I got at a thrift store for take a guess.......Yes $1 that I painted silver.

My "0" that I also got at the same time for yup $1. These numbers don't have any particular meaning only that they were cheap, huge and well, numbers.

My vignette on top of my bookcase full of cookbooks. The candle holder, cake stand, bead garland were all purchased at thrift stores and I just put it all together and stuck a candle on top.

My little tree in the living room that I decorated. This was Mama's tree so hands off kiddos! You can't see it but I found an Eiffel Tower glass ornament at Target that I had to have. The urn was from a thrift store in Portland that I thought would add some elegance to the tree.

My "Present Wreath", shabby euro pillows ( I can custom make some for you on my Etsy store), and my bird bath thingy that is really huge but I fell in love with at a TJMaxx/Home Goods Store in Eugene, Oregon. Wish I had a Home Goods store closer to us. I made 2 little table cloths for my black Ikea tables to match my pillows.

My mantel with my hot sellers on Etsy-burlap stockings! I had to add a 5th one for our dog Snow White. The church was a thrift store find from our trip to Oregon.

My "Winter" banner that I made for our mirror.

Our kitchen dining room light. Decorated with kid made snowflakes, dollar tree garland, and other things.

My coffee stained tags and my thrift store finds. The scale was purchased last year at the Lewiston Peddler's Fair.

Hope you enjoyed the tour! It is a different look for us but I like that I will be able to reuse alot of my things throughout the year!

  10. Oh wow - your home is BEAUTIFUL!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything! I think a lot of that would look great year-round. It just looks so ELEGANT with the shades of white and pops of green and black.

  11. I love your Shabby Christmas. You have got some great ideas. I've been looking for some silver glitter letters. Will you share where you got yours. I can't seem to find any with font that I like. I had a banner similar to yours in mind but now it's only in my mind. The burlap stockings are a wonderful idea.
    Thanks for sharing
