Hey everyone! As we wind down to the big day, I hope you have all found time to decompress and just enjoy this wonderful time of year. Today I thought I would give a little "Christmas Home Tour." You've seen most of the rooms and decor already, but I just thought I would highlight some of my favorites. Would you care for some Russian Tea or maybe a cup of cocoa? Later I could serve you some fresh-from-the-oven Banana Bread......yum! Shall we begin?
To see the rest of our outside decor, you can go HERE.
Inside the front door:
I made this wreath last year, but changed the ribbons this year to freshen it up!
I love our entry table! To see how I created this table, go HERE.
The Sitting Room-Dining Room:
Our main tree. To see how I decorated this tree, go HERE. You can see how I made the
tree skirt HERE.
This space is so cozy and wonderful for quiet conversations and sipping a little wine!
I adore my GW Santa from several years ago!
I love decorating my old dark pine china cabinet, no matter what season.
A small string of battery-powered lights tucked under the greenery and balls, give a
lovely glow to my tables cape.
Anything under glass looks so pretty!
Just a bit of Christmas cheer!
Best place to kick off your shoes, relax and just enjoy life. Just ask Abby!
Fresh flowers from The Man!
I've had so much fun with these little apothecary jars! To see how I used the same jars in my
Fall decor, you can go HERE.
The Kitchen and Breakfast Room:
I've truly enjoyed this fresh green wreath from Trader Joe's -- smells so wonderful! Thanks to
Dawn at Creative Cain Cabin for the perfect vinyl "JOY" letters to decorate my candle jar!
Now, tell me that this trio doesn't make you smile? I dare ya!
Simple $Store ornaments and ribbon to dress up these fleur de lis lampshades.
Coffee or tea, anyone?
Just where is Miss Betty Crocker, anyway?
This is "Me" in snowwoman style -- well, definitely not that round & fluffy!
I just shared how I created this little centerpiece HERE.
Gotta love apothecary jars!
My fun Kitchen tree!
My Craft-Sewing Room:
A decorated grapevine cone tree keeps it cheerful for me as I work on projects, like......
The little ornies I made for the "Grands!"
Guest Room and Bath:
To see more details of our guest room and bath, you can go HERE.
End of the Tour:

Be Happy and Joyous!
