  2. Hi Yvonne,
    I always love your home at Christmas. So beautiful. It’s like a present in itself waiting to be unwrapped !

  3. I can’t find the post where you talk about the type of glue to put on the back of plates before you hang them on the wall. It was something you stuck a pop can tab in to use as a hook. Does anyone remember this post?

  4. After reading these Christmas decorating ideas, I am reminded of how much you have given over the years. “Rain or shine”, you just keep on blessing! Thank you!

  7. Cecilia from Georgia says:

    Oh Yvonne! You’re home is so warm and inviting. You have decorated beautifully and so tasteful. I need to get my decorations finished by Dec. 6th and haven’t even begun:( Seeing your tour has given me some new ideas and I am ready to get started. Sometimes all I need is a little inspiration to get my creative juices flowing. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

    1. Hi Cecilia, that is exactly why I write StoneGable! Just to help sweet women like you!

  8. I live in southern Florida, but I’m not really into the coastal christmas themes.The woodland theme is still going strong and I am so glad! We have woods in Florida,especially in northern Fl.I love the red and white and black buffalo plaids with woodland animals. Owls are my fave. One of my bathrooms does have the coastal look,so I stay with that for Christmas. Love your blog!! Kerie

  9. Debra Matcovich says:

    I love your mantle with the simple paper tree with the garland. What type of garland is it.

  10. Sharon Payne Hardy says:

    Do you have a source for the cutout village? I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find one that I like nearly as well as this one.
