There is this store here in Kansas City called Nell Hill's, its a home decor mecca . The owner, Mary Carol Garrity does this awesome open house every Christmas season where she decorates her own gorgeous historic home and opens it up to the public to come in and marvel at the splendor. It was my first time, but for sure not to be the last. My friend Tara asked me to go, and Lindsay and I being the newbies thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Here are some photos to inspire you as you deck your halls. I love the holidays!
