From Our Home to Yours…

For my first post in 2014, I wanted to showcase our Holiday Home Decor.  My partner in crime Niki Silverweb did most of the heavy lifting and took all the photos.  Thanks Niki!  Each room features at least one Christmas tree and most have fireplaces.  The feeling of warmth, coziness and love prevails in our Barnesworth Anubis Edwardian Salem Cottage.   I hope you enjoy!

Many of the items in our home were either hunt items from the Peace On Earth (12/1/13 -1/6/14, doubled stared in red below) or Four Walls hunt, The Collage, Marketplace finds or Arcade items.  Quick note about The Collage, it’s a monthly home event that last for two weeks starting on the 23rd each month, and I was recently selected as an official blogger, so be on the lookout for more home decor blogs. Items from the two rounds of The Collage are stared in green below.  All items can also be found at the brands main store. Taxi to The Collage……


Sweet smells waft through the air as you enter our home.  Our friendly dog Jack has a welcome gift for all and a soft lounge is a great retreat from the cold.

A holiday feast awaits you with gifts for all at each table setting.  To continue the holiday spirit in the dining room we showcased a Christmas tree in the corner.

As we make our way upstairs we reimagined the landing in the upstairs hallway by tranforming it into a library, complete with a book tree and wrapping bench.
