    Victoria you are BRILLIANT! Really I do believe so 🙂 I am such a garland snob and the local stuff has been terrible. This year I went to the local school drive christmas tree sale and purchased boatloads of garland at a discount price. They only had Pine but it was the best pine around and I looped it up AND down my long steps leading to my home. I stepped back and thought…” More is much more delightful! I STILL need to find out where Victoria gets hers” ….and today I found this article. YAY. I will certainly be checking out that place next year. LOVE garland and theirs looks divine. Please keep us posted on how it holds up indoors.

    I have no words. Well, ok. I do. I am actually rarely speechless but I have just finished laughing so hard at this post that I am still catching my breath. I may have snorted {yes, out loud} several times. I realized I was reading and laughing so hard that I forgot to look at half the pictures and had to go back. What kind of home tour compadre am I, anyway??
    Your home is beautiful and your post is hilarious. Pinning now and then I am off to stalk you on all of your social media because… how was I not following along already??
    Glad to have “met” you through the tour!!

    Fantastical as usual. I hope you snorted the German glitter…it is much smoother on the nose. Those mirrors you love certainly hold up the garland nicely! Well done. A joy to be on tour with you…alas, I am the last day. Are people tired of Christmas? I hope not! Swing on by & let me know if your garland has dried out? If not I will be an Alpine girl next year or maybe still this year!! My sincerest hope is that yours is fresh & fragrant throughout the holiday season!!

    Loved this blog! So amusing … so I made a few bows, checked out your lovely home & pinned you on my board & group boards … THANKS for the giggles, the sympathetic sighs, the affirmation that I am not alone in never having enough craft supplies & know that I will be back. I’m a sucker for being entertained & crafting at the same time. P.S. You do your mother proud!

    Going back through and caught this video – I love that Elvis is nonchalantly grooming behind you. You’d think she’d want to help show off the couch or something!

    You’re ideas are brilliant.
    I am wondering how to attach the fake mantel to my existing mantel without damaging it?? My existing mantle is not very deep, only 6-8″. Once I attach my stockings to the fake mantel, I am worried it will flip forward and fall. Please help. 🙂

      I don’t hang stockings, but I can see how that’s going to pull a narrow board right off. Could you hold the board down with something heavy to offset the stockings? Or secure it with a nail into the wall? (If you can avoid molding and just hit plaster?)

    “Christmas is to bloggers, what tax season is to accountants”……one of the greatest lines I have ever read thus far in blogland!!!

    I found you thanks to Karianne @ Thistlewood Farms and I cannot thank her enough!!! You are both so talented and fabulous, you are teaching a baby blogger like me how it is done!!! I just signed up and cannot wait to see what is next in the renovation chapter.

    Also, I share your obsession with Mr. Draper…..what a man, what a man, what a mighty fine man!!!

    I want you to know that this ribbon has ruined me for all other ribbon for the rest of my days on earth. I will not be happy until I find this exact ribbon or at least some identical replica! boo hoo!
