Welcome to Tara Lowery’s Holiday Home Tour

Today we’re touring the home of a lovely lady who shares my love of fantels, big wooden signs and dough bowls. Please welcome to the stage Miss Tara Lowery and her gorgeous Georgia home as the next stop of our Holiday Home Tours week!

Hi!  I’m Tara from between you & me, and since most of us are just meeting,
 I thought I’d tell you at least a couple things about me before we tour my home together.
How awkward would it be to walk through my house together as strangers?
We live in Athens, Georgia located in the beautiful North Georgia mountains,
and it’s the home of our Alma Mater, the University of Georgia
Over the course of our nearly 17 years of marriage, we’ve lived all over the southeast,
so we were beyond thrilled when we moved back to Athens, the classic city, a year and a half ago.
I’ve been blogging for almost 3 years, and 2 years ago our Etsy shop was born.
My husband and I {and our three kiddos} work together to help create custom signs, and we love it!
I hope you enjoy the bits and pieces of Christmas cheer that we’ve spread throughout our home.
Grab that second cup of coffee, hot chocolate or hot tea and come on in!
This DIY burlap wreath was worth every last penny of that twelve bucks I spent making it.
It’s seen us through football season, halloween, thanksgiving and now Christmas.
Who knew adding a five dollar evergreen to my grandfather’s old milking can could add such joy?
The pillows are from Dear Lillie, and the only thing that would make me happier is having ten more of them.
We are surrounded by cotton fields, 
and my favorite surprise this fall involved my husband coming home with my first ever bundle of it.
As if it’s beauty wasn’t enough, it went and gave us a history lesson.
My kids now have a very real appreciation for Eli Whitney and his cotton gin after we spent too many minutes to count trying to take the seeds out of the cotton bundles.
Who doesn’t love a hot chocolate bar? I scored major cool points with my kids for putting it on the countertops.
Someone came over recently and asked if we really drink it.  My reply?  “Every chance we get!”
The jingle bells have been just about the easiest little happy spot I’ve created this year.
They sit right in front of my kitchen sink and overlook that gorgeous cityscape that my friend created.
We’re so grateful that love came down and dwelt among us.
There has never been nor will there ever be a more Holy Night than the night of His birth.
We pray that his presence brings you unspeakable peace this next year.
I’ve loved visiting with you all today…thanks for taking the tour with me.
Merriest Christmas from our family to you & yours!!

Sigh… doesn’t Tara’s home make you want to put your feet up and stay a while? I’m in love with her wooden signs in her etsy store. And the cotton bolls in the pitcher and the evergreen in the milk pail? OK, all of it! Thanks so much, Tara, for sharing it with us!
