Welcome! I hope you have a cup of hot cider, tea, or coffee with you!
I've festooned the front porch a bit...
And this is the view if you peek in the front door. Winston's eager to greet you when you come in!! ;-)
This is the foyer when you step in..see the red wool coat up the stairs? That belonged to my 88 year old father, who wore it when walking to school in the snow in Illinois when he was in high school. I love to bring it out and feature it at Christmas..
To the right of the front door is this cabinet. I just did a simple display..
And to the left of the door is our Christmas tree..Courtney decorated it..AND decorated the whole family room!
The view from the front room.
The secretary desk dolled up for Christmas..
I just added a few Christmasy doo-dads to what was already there..
And here is the front room..feel free to go warm yourself by the fire!
A little vignette on the coffee table...
The nativity vignette..you can see the other one here.
Another little table display..
This one all in gold.
Steve sets up his village every year. He uses baking powder (the large bag from Costco) for snow.
Views of the front room.
The dining room. If you'd like to see more, go here.
All ready for tea at a moments notice! ;-)
Back thru the foyer...
heading into the family room.
My daughter, Courtney, decorates the family room every year.
I think she does a fabulous job!
I love her attention to detail...wonder where she got that from? ;-)
A sweet little display on the kitchen counter.
My nod to a White Christmas..see more here.
And the heart of the home..the kitchen.
Since my kitchen is in pastels already, I just use all pastel colored decorations, new and vintage.
The little dining nook..
Of course, sweet Lindy is always on display..now with a few Christmas trees surrounding her!
I love my warm and homey kitchen!
And a sweet sentiment to leave you with..
and if you'd like to see the necessary room decorated for Christmas, go here.
Thank you for stopping in for a little tour. I hope it blessed you and put you in a festive mood!!
During this Christmas season, May you be blessed With the spirit of the season, which is peace, the gladness of the season which is hope, And the heart of the season, which is love.
Glory to God in the Highest
and on earth peace,
good will toward men
I am linking up with the following fun parties!
