Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and a Christmas blogger Link-up



Christmas future is far away
Christmas past is past
Christmas present is here today
Bringing joy that will last....

These precious words sung by Karen Carpenter really resonate don't they?

Today, I'd love to take you down memory lane and show you Christmas past and Christmas present at Eleven Gables.

Eleven Gables Home for Christmas




Merry Christmas 
Welcome to our Deck the Halls Christmas Home Tour hosted by my sweet friends from the blogs Decor Gold Designs and Randi Garrett Design!

Jennifer, from Decor Gold Designs is a fellow Oklahoman and I have loved getting to know her through our love for design and blogging.  If you have come to my blog via hers, WELCOME!  And if you are just now joining us, be sure and visit all six of our entryways or front porches, then come back every day this week for more inspiration!!

Since we updated our house this year, it has been extra fun decorating with an entirely new color palate.  You can see my complete Before and After Home Tour here.


Outside, I keep the decor the same from year to year.  Who am I to change a "good thing?"



Pre-lit, battery operated wreaths are a little slice of heaven.  We just set the timer and forget it.  And the best part... they are less than $20 each!


Now, Come on inside and warm up with a cup of hot chocolate!


As you step inside, you will be greeted by my Christmas tree (details HERE)

The freshly painted white woodwork makes everything pop, so this year I opted to carry my love for blue and white transferware through to my tree.


Now, I'm going to turn on the Christmas Carols and let you sing along while I show you around...

White Christmas
by Irving Berlin


I'm dreaming of a (blue and) white Christmas



Just like the ones I used to know


Where the treetops glisten and children listen



To hear sleigh bells in the snow


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

slipcovered sofa // wicker trunk // blue and linen pillows (discontinued) // sunburst mirror

With every Christmas card I write

large ginger jars  //  small jars on mantle

May your days be merry and bright



And may all your Christmases be white


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas


Just like the ones I used to know


boxwood wreaths // mercury trees

Where the treetops glisten and children listen



To hear sleigh bells in the snow


similar antique santos // similar crown verse

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas



With every Christmas card I write



May your days be merry and bright





And may all your Christmases be (blue and) white (and sparkly)!

Thank you for singing along with me today! Now, go visit my darling friend, 

Merry Merry Merry Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas,
Darlings!
