  1. Wow, I love those icicles, they really do look real on the tree What a genius idea. Your mantel is also stunning, those lights are so pretty and that wood bead garland is amazing. Beautiful tour and such a lovely home. Your fur babies and your daughter are show stealers too. Thanks so much for joining the tours, I always love seeing your home.

    1. Thanks Marty, I wish I could show how the icicles look in person.

  2. I love those icicles. My cats would have knocked them out of the tree:) Your home looks amazing. Thank you

    1. Thanks Debby, surprisingly mine leave them alone completely. They don’t make great toys ๐Ÿ˜‰ they have better ones which is why I think they leave them alone LOL

  3. Beautiful Julia, I love the icicle tree, so sparkly & the oranges with cloves centerpiece. It’s all so pretty and festive! Merry Christmas to you!

    1. Thanks Rhoda and Merry Christmas to you too

  4. Very pretty! I love the icicles. I had some little birds with balsa wood tails that I brought home from Germany…30 years ago…. sadly most of them have fallen apart, but I still have my smokey Santa.

    1. My wooden smokers have started to fall apart too which makes me sad. They are all pretty delicate and having little kids around didn’t help.

  5. Your Christmas decorations are beautiful and I especially love your icicles tree. Awww, that picture of your daughter and Willy is so very cute!

    1. Thanks Julia, my daughter is obsessed with Willy and so am I ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. The icicles are stunning! Love your wooden garland. Is that one of your DIY projects? Love everything. Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks Gina, it’s actually a vase filler I bought at Pottery Barn two years ago and that I turned into a garland and added some wooden ornaments I found at HomeGoods. But I cam up with an idea how you can make your worn with furniture legs. https://cuckoo4design.com/diy-huge-wood-bead-garland/

  7. The icicles look so real I envision them melting.
    Your house looks Faaab,as usual. (I bet you could make a little cash doing small decorating jobs..and I only say “small” so that it’s not stressful and still fun for you) .
    Your daughter is growing into a beauty (she looks like you). Did you do her braids?
    LOVE the cats!!!

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Carol, I’ve done that before but more often little decorating jobs turn into big ones ๐Ÿ˜‰ And yes I did braid my daughters hair. It’s her favorite hairdo.

  8. Julia your icicled tree is amazing!!!!! I am so in love with it! I’ve been craving a simpler and simpler Christmas every year as my kids have gotten older and this is so beautiful and natural. Love how it looks in your home!

    1. Thanks Lisa,
      If I go even simpler than I wonโ€™t have anything to write about anymore ๐Ÿ˜‰ Merry Christmas

  17. Where on earth do you find your Christmas trees? I keep looking for unshaped trees, but all that I can find around me are triangular cones of fir!

    Lovely pictures and your home looks just adorable. Your cat looks like she is ready to attack the tree ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, the icicles are a genius idea. Even in the picture, they look so stunning and real. I can’t believe that this is the first time I ever saw an idea like this. Your cats are also very cute. I love cats! I might get one this year ๐Ÿ™‚ The furs that cover your chairs and sofa look very comfy too. I have a carpet that’s similar in texture, but I should probably get more for my couches.
