Pinterest Inspiration

Christmas is nudging its way into my mind these past few days. 
There just might be a jingle or two playing on my Pandora and I might be spending more time than
usual on Pinterest. Are you doing that too?

I thought I'd share a few Christmas Pinterest boards that are making my eyes sparkle.
Pictures of homes that are decked out in realistic ways are what I like to see.
As my friend Kim at Exquisitely Unremarkable talked about, I want to decorate using the things we already have and love  but with a little Christmas twist.

Grab a cup of coffee or a big Diet Coke and enjoy a few of these Pinterest boards.


 Let's look at this picture for a minute...
Andrea put her cute Christmas dishes on the shelves that she changes for the seasons...tied a few ribbons...and just look at how adorable it is!


Love this picture posted on my Pinterest board. How easy and cute is this?
We all have newspapers or maybe an old book we could wrap a gift with
and then add the perfect embellishment.


BJ at Sweet Nothings has a fun Christmas board and had this
one pinned from  Around R House. Adorable!


And of course sweet Carol at Art and Sand inspires everyone with her creative cottage blog.
Most of us can't compete with her creativity but check out her Pinterest boards to be
inspired for Christmas. :)

I love it when people use their creativity instead of their wallet to decorate. What wonderful, doable ideas! Thanks for all the great inspiration! :-)

Stacey,
Just adding red changes a room from the everyday to HOLIDAY. Amazing how just the use of one color sparks the imagination to see Christmas.

Pinterest is a real time killer isn't it? LOL I get on there and three hours layer I come to. So many creative ideas.

JoAnne said...

Oh I love that little stocking hanging on the chair! I'm trying to keep my decorating more simple too and just embellish the things I already have around.

Cozy Little House said...

I just got an email from Carol about their Christmas plans! I love all of this inspiration.

I just discovered that the holiday channels are back on my satellite radio. That's all it takes to start thinking about Christmas. After seeing these pretty pictures, I'm now inspired even more. I've only recently started to "pin" and try to limit my time with it as I know I could easily waste hours drooling over all of the inspiration to be found there.

That stocking on the back of the chair is adorable! I love to decorate the kitchen and dining room the most. So many fun ideas here!

Mountain Mama said...

I am beyond excited to decorate my house for Christmas!! Thanks for these easy and lovely ideas!

Kelly said...

Those are all such great pics for Christmas inspiration. I can't believe it will be time to decorate in just 2 weeks!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

We just came from Christmas shopping! It's already crazy fun out there :) This photo reminded me of things I have that I forgot about, lol. Thank you for sharing it! Merry merry!! xo

Kim said...

Well, what a surprise, to see my name here today, Stacey! :) Thank you for the sweet shout out. I too have listened to a random carol or two lately. I don't know why, but I'm feeling a little teeny tiny bit nostalgic and Nat King Cole is hitting the spot. Of course, it doesn't hurt that my kids have put lights up in their rooms already!

So many pretty pictures!

My Kentucky Living said...

lots of cute ideas...but the simple white stocking with greenery appeals to me! Simple. Cute.

Great inspiration! I've been listening to Christmas music all weekend, and putting my decorations up! I love the picture you featured with the Gingerbread House, tabletop tree, and Santa... too cute! :) ~Rhonda

Katie Mansfield said...

I sent you a couple of emails.
Yes, I'd love to be a part. Let me know the details.
I love Pinterest for inspiration. The red is gorgeous.

Those are so really sweet ideas and vignettes, Stacey! Since I'm hosting Thanksgiving for 21 or so, I'm trying not to put too much thought into Christmas yet! Although, I know it will be here quickly! Enjoy your Pinterest Time :) Blessings, Cindy

Shelia said...

Yep, I'm doing the same thing - looking at Christmas and getting ideas! I could spend all day long on Pinterest! That site is addicting to me!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia

My eye went to that pretty gingerbread house. We use to make houses like that every year, but like everything, times change.

Pinterest is dangerous this time of year (or any time I suppose!).

Very pretty inspiration Stacey!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Stacey, lots of great inspiration here. Love Carol's boards and all Pinterest has to offer. Getting ready for decorating here. All the tubs are down from the attic.
Have a great week. xo

Mar C @mypaintbucketlist.com said...

So pretty! I am full on Christmas right now and loving every bit of it! I love using red at Christmas and all of these inspiration photos are beautiful!
Love the idea of using what you have.
Have a wonderful Monday!

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh yes, Christmas is taking a lot of my attention right now. I plan to start decorating this week. Of course that means that I have been spending more time on Pinterest too. I love these ideas, and you just gave me more boards to check out :)

mary scott said...

What catches my eye on each of these photos is all the red & white. Makes me happy! thanks

Blondie's Journal said...

Thanks so much, Stacey...I love the gift wrapping idea!!

Great inspiration. Thanks!

Gypsy Heart said...

Great ideas ~ thanks for sharing! I love it when decorations are "using what you have" rather than spending a ton of money. Although there are stunning homes decorated to the max, all of that lives in the attic, basement or closet most of the year.

Always loving the red!
