Christmas Home Tour


Welcome to our home for Christmas!  Everything is decorated and ready for Christmas day!  You can see our Doxie waiting at the screen door to greet you.


The front porch is decorated with a Christmas/Winter theme.



 We have had an unusually cold Winter so far, so the snowmen are just the right decor for the porch.

Next, is our entryway


I wanted to share a little tip with you.  I have Christmas lights all around the house, so to make them easy to turn off and on, I have these button extension cords.  I can easy turn all of my lights on and off with the touch of a button, without plugging in and unplugging all of the lights.  I have the buttons in easy to reach places, but tucked out of sight. You can see the one on my entry table below.



Both of these Santa's are waiting to greet you in our entry.


Then, you move on to our living room.  This time of year, the Hallmark Channel is on a lot!  I love the Christmas movies.  Did you spot our Doxie, Jax?  He's relaxing, enjoying the tree and staying warm.


I have quite a few Santa Elves around the house.  They add a touch of whimsy to the Christmas decor that I just love.



This sweet Nativity is actually from the Dollar Store.  I added a touch of gold spray glitter to dress the up a little.  You would never know it came from the Dollar Store.


The other side of our Living Room



This little angel sits on one of the shelves.  She is one of my favorite things, and actually stays out all year.


I love that I have a large mantel.  When we bought the house there wasn't a mantle at all.  When we decided to add one, I knew I wanted it to fill the space between both book cases, so that I could have plenty of space for decorating.


Even the mudroom gets decorated.  The snowman/winter theme is the perfect decor to go with all of our coats and scarves.


Even the coffee bar got decorated for Christmas


Our kitchen has a lot of activity during the holidays, so it has to be decorated and festive.  



I use to set up a Christmas village, but I really don't have anywhere to do that in this house.  So, I used a few of the pieces tucked in a few places with other Christmas decor.


In our Master bedroom, I added a wreath above our bed, and a white comforter for the winter.  Our Pom, Dusty is tucked in his bed fast asleep.
I decided to elevate our Master bedroom tree, by putting it in this antique trunk.  I also added a quilt for a tree skirt.  Now, you can see the tree better when you are sitting in the bed watching television.



Well, that's our Home for the Holidays!  Hope you enjoyed the tour.  I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by!
