I am finally getting around to trying to show photos of my house in one post to give you an idea of the whole picture. Please take the tour and I hope it inspires your decorating ideas for Christmas. Though I am most in favor of Remembering the meaning of the Season! So enjoy yourself but do not add stress to your life and family by decorating anxieties! These are images from Christmases past at my house. ( Some of the photos are not as good as my new photos.)
So let’s start with the dining room. The dining room used to be the family room and the office until it was combined as one room with the taking down of a wall.
So yes I am a little crazy but I put wreaths on the insides of the living room windows opposite the outdoor windows. Now I used the suction cups for all of my wreaths inside and out. They hold the wreaths, even the heavy ones, in snow sleet and hail. Uses the largest ones for heavy wreaths.
Here is another view of the living room. The buffet holds my collection of vintage Italian triptychs of the holy family.
Here is the kitchen table ready for a party. Hence the chairs are in another room. This is before I painted the kitchen blue with off white trim.
These little red berry wreath candle sleeves are one of my favorite decorations. Easy on and easy off.
This is the family room tree.
This corner cabinet is in the family room. I open up the doors and put my nativities right in with the dishes. Often, I add greens as well.
I add my largest nativity village which I have had for many years and which used to be around my grand
parent’s tree. The village was started by my grandfather for his oldest son about 100 years ago!
