Christmas Home Tour

It’s so bittersweet to have Christmas right around the corner. A part of me wants it to be here a.s.a.p.

Another part of me wants it to hold off so I can keep enjoying the lights, trees, and just that warm Christmas feeling. 

Our last name is Palma. I have lots of ornaments with the letter P.

I’ve never documented my home during Christmas and this year I wanted to take pics so I can relive and remember this year.

I inherited this from my mom. It’s one of my favorites! I have to put it up every single year.

This year has been so rewarding, life-changing, and also very very hard. It was an emotional rollercoaster, to say the least. But Christmas always brings so much hope. 

I reused so many things in my home to decorate. I bought very few new things and even kept some stuff put away so I wouldn’t crowd my space. I took my time to decorate.

I’m most proud of how the centerpiece in my dinning room turned out. I’ve reused these lanterns over and over. Got some fake snow, little trees, and made these little scenes.
Next year I may add a little house and car. Maybe even twinkle lights.

I rearranged things every week and just enjoyed the process. I feel like decorating is an ongoing process and there really isn’t like a final, FINAL result. I kinda like that. 

Hope you enjoy all these pics. Hope you feel welcome from afar. And I hope you are inspired to make your space uniquely yours.

The sun setting makes things look kinda pink. I’m swooning!

Remember that your home is perfect because it’s yours and you get to serve and love people in it. The decor is just the cherry on top. 

I love the glowing light when the sun is setting. My heart feels so full and happy.
I dream of taking styled pics with a real truck like this one day. For now this will do 😉 

Merry Christmas! Thanks for taking time to take this tour with me 🙂

Grace-filled Reminders For The Lady Of The House (a.k.a. Home Engineer, Family Manager, Home Economist)

StyldbyGrace_LadyOfTheHouseCards__35I’m excited to share a new freebie I created for my fellow homemakers. That word, homemaker, may be a dirty word to some but to me, it means the head lady in charge. The boss lady. The home engineer. The puzzle solver. The family manager. The lady of the house. And oftentimes, the home economist. Anything to save a dollar here and there, right?!

Loving, nurturing, organizing, and up keeping our homes can seem like an antiquated thing but God has called us to our homes and families first. If we can manage businesses, schedules, outings, and everything else in between, we should make it a priority to manage our homes. To look out for our people. To make sure everything is at peace.

But let’s be real. In the modern world, where our careers, side hustles, and servant leadership, demand A LOT from us, that can be really really difficult. Sometimes we even resent “having” to take care of our homes. I know I do!

So, what the solution? First, an enormous amount of grace towards ourselves and our families. Second, reading and meditating on God’s word and truth. And finally, reminders that encourage us daily, rooted in God’s word, both practical and spiritual.
