The Junk Parlor

Oh my goodness! We’ve been in the new house for a year and a half now! And boy, a lot has changed! Checkout my Christmas Home Tour for 2023!

I share my home in a couple videos this year! First I let you help me decorate. That might sound a little weird, but because we’ve only been in the home a short while, I don’t really know how I decorate for Christmas here! None of my Christmas decor has it’s “usual” spot. That can make decorating a little interesting!

Now I did decorate last year. You can watch that little tour HERE. But since last Christmas we have had built-ins installed, added wood floors, and stained them a new color. Those are some big changes to last year!!

After decorating this year, I now have a better idea of what I have and where it fits in this new house. I also now have a good idea of the kinds of things I want to look our for this coming year so that I can use them when I decorate in 2024!!

I’m not writing much in the blog post because I talk all about it in the videos! Be sure to watch the Decorate with Me and then come back to see what I actually ended up with in my Simple Christmas Home Tour 2023!!

Next year I will have to share my mom’s house! I shared a lot of it on Instagram when we were home for Thanksgiving! Here is one cool repurpose from her house! She used a cracker holder to hold her remotes!! I even found one thrifting!


Of course I went thrifting for a lot of my decor AND my gifts this year. Read all about that HERE.
