2010 Christmas Home Tours

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? The countdown is on isn’t it? It came so fast!
I thought I’d show you some areas around my home that I haven’t showed before. This is my kitchen window, I found the holy wreath at GW last year and the snowmen towel hanging there is a Martha Stewart one from Macy’s…love going in there and looking at all of her neat things!

I put two trees here in front of the keepingroom window…

and leaned a PB starfish up against the milkglass vase!

My Entryway

I found this basket of greens for 70% off a few years back, just haven’t got around to changing to a silver ribbon!

The skate at Altmyer’s, my first glittery piece.

I finally found a centerpiece for my diningroom table, I think I at least had tried two before but just wasn’t satisfied…glass container GW, silver ornaments Dollar Tree, snowy, evergreen wreath Rite Aid and the ironstone plate I already had!

I added a real feather tree to my china cabinet and

added some Santa’s too!

I’ve had this wreath for years but adding the silver bow and ornaments brought out it’s beauty even more!

I saw this idea on someone’s blog but can’t remember whose but I just loved it, of course I cut off the top part but you can see it in the above picture.

After seeing these acorn ornaments all over blogland I had to run to Walmart to get three to hang on the garland on my mantel. I picked up some silver picks at JoAnn’s too, made the garland a little fuller looking.

My new shaggy rug, Buster looooves  it

Your Christmas decor looks wonderful! I love the way your entryway looks with the holly garland & skate. I also like how you added Santa to your china cabinet...why didn't I like of that? :)

Your house is full of Christmas charm! The ice skate and the centerpiece are my favorite. Of course, I like "Buster" too. He looks very comfortable...lol! We had a yellow Lab years ago. Great dogs!

~Merry Christmas, R!

It looks very pretty, Rondell! I am enjoying your new look. Have a very Merry Christmas!

Your Christmas decorating is equally beautiful as all the other decorating talents you have shown us! Just beautiful!
Thanks for stopping to see me earlier. I always enjoy your visits! Oh, between us, I'm not so organized. I just scaled way back this year because of being so tired and too, grown children having their own Christmas this year, means a lot less work for me ;)
Merry Christmas,
oxox,

Buster looks like such a darling! Thanks for joining the party and just to let you know, the throw came from the Martha Stewart line at Macy's last year.

Merry Christmas!
