  1. Each area is so festive and creative!! Thank you for sharing your home with us! My favorite parts would probably be the tree stands as candle holders and the dried citrus in the window 🤩

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad you enjoyed it, Stef! I’ve got a vintage tree stand post coming up on Saturday!

  2. My gosh girl, I’m dying over here. The window decor by the table, the door trees, the little trim trees, the old Christmas tree stands?! What the cuss?! You are the luckiest junk finder I know. Love every nook and cranny in your home. Your details are magical. I would sit and gaze all dang day and get nothing accomplished. Nothing! Always love hopping with you. BTW, can you tell Santa to be extra good to me too this year? 🙂

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for your sweet words, friend:) Yes, I will put a good word in to Santa for you…or you could just make a trip up north and we could junk together sometime!

  17. Lora you do vintage Christmas SO well! Wow so many goodies to and beautiful items to look at in your tour. But your Shiny Brite collection is my favorite! Merry Christmas my friend and thank you for joining me this week.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Kelly, for organizing this fun week! Yes, I love the Shiny Brites, too, and was so happy to a dear aunt’s gorgeous, detailed collection. I usually break one a year and almost cry:(

  18. I don’t even know where to start!! Like…the creativity that you have is unlike anything I’ve seen. The vintage books used to make Christmas trees…the wheels in the tin trough…the layers upon layers of vintage goodness that you’ve used is just incredible. You truly scored HUGE at that estate sale you went to with all those red and white dishes!! They are just fantastic and look so pretty in your hutch!
    I’m truly just in awe of your decorating, Lora. You are the best of the best, my friend!! Happy Christmas!

    Eye candy in every photo! Thank you for sharing your beautiful eclectic home once again.

  22. Lora,
    So many great creative ideas in your home. I loved the book trees and the wooden trees. Such a creative tour. Great job.

  23. Your decor is perfect as always. I especially like the citrus banner over the kitchen sink. Wow 🙂

  24. Your entire home decor is beautiful but those “old door” rustic trees are the best I’ve seen!!!
