Next, visit Dria at Dio Home Improvements who honors both of her parents with their own Christmas tree. I love the handyman’s tree. I wish I still had my grandpas tools and I’d put a few on my tree also. A lovely tribute to her parents this holiday season, don’t you think?

I had the opportunity to meet Leslie personally who came all the way to Ohio from Nashville for the Country Living Fair this year.  She blogs at House on the Way.  Her vignettes and her home are gorgeous, and I love the ice skates on display in this first picture.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kathy who blogs at Petticoat Junktion this summer at the Country Living Fair. She proves that not all “junk” is rusty and brown. Check out her bright and cheery home, and that awesome door latch art made into a Christmas tree.  Enjoy!

Day #5 Tours:

Jeanette who blogs at Country Designs Style wowed me with this little idea using an antique truck for a holiday display.  I am starting to really get into crafts and miniatures (and my kids love this too)…but even a grown up can’t resist this idea.  If you have one in storage, go dig it out….put a tree on it and enjoy it once again!

I love the creative, homemade displays I found on the blog, Mommy is Cooccoo.  Amanda used an old pallet wood and arranged ornaments in shape of a Christmas tree.   I do love a colorful display during the holidays. Don’t forget to check out her DIY wreath also made out of ornaments.

Loving the woodland theme that Kelly created in her L.A. home.  Check out her blog, My Soulful Home. I especially love the use of garden elements (white kale) as an accent, and how she dressed up an old fountain with succulents and river rock.  Very pretty.
