Great ideas for Christmas decorating!

Well you'll never guess where I went! I know you will ... the Bachman's Christmas Ideas House! I took a little mini-vacation and drove over there the other day. Still as inspiring as ever! This year's house was very wintery ... lots of silver and white and light. Still cool!

I think the front porch will always be my favorite. It's a decompression zone before you go into the house ... especially if you've made the mistake of going to the garden center first! It's chilly on the porch but I'd still want to hang out there ... wearing a jacket and probably fingerless gloves, of course!

One of the things I loved about the Christmas house is their great use of lights. They had small spot lights hidden in unexpected places that really added drama ... and light ... to areas that normally are pretty dark.

Like inside the fireplace. It's dark and dreary without a fire there! I love this idea.

This was a glass light cover ... the kind you probably would have seen hanging in Grandma's dining room. They put it on one of those wire garbage bag holders ... from Grandma's yard ... put a glass round on top ... lit it from below. Wonder if it's too late to get the fixture from my mom and dad's house. Hmmmmm ....

Lots of mirrors all over the place helped to keep the light bouncing around ... pretty even on a sunny day. I loved the living room.

The theme from the downstairs was carried out in mom and dad's bedroom upstairs. It was dreamy ... very romantic ... if you're in to that sort of thing! :-)

It's impossibly hard not to keep looking at the prettiness!
