Christmas Home Tour



 



I'm joining in the
2012 Christmas Tour of Homes at Nesting Place and Homespun Christmas Link Party featuring Doors & Wreaths going on over at On Sutton Place


No doubt, you are all busy with your Christmas preparations and have little time to sit and read a wordy blog post so let me take you on a mostly "silent" tour of our home all decked out in holiday cheer.


 
These pictures are actually from last year (which were never posted) but I have decorated much the same this year with only a few exceptions.

 
 
 
As shown below, we have an "awkward" entry with the "man-door" to the garage being right next to our front entrance door.  I never know if I should have matching decor on these doors but decided to go with identical swags for now.
 



 
The "glow" in these living room pics make the walls look yellow but IRL, they are actually a toffee cream colour.










 
Confession time - below is last year's mantel as you can tell by the old white brick (click here for our fireplace makeover) but I haven't quite finished this year's mantel yet.

 
 
 













 
 ...to be continued.  I hope you will check back later for Part 2 of this Christmas Home Tour. (click here for Part 2)

I'll also be linking this post to the following terrific blog parties:
Wow Us Wednesday at Savy Southern Style
Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper
Sunday Showcase at Under the Table and Dreaming

Your home is just lovely and all of your decorations look so festive against that backdrop of snow. I will have to admit that I miss snow in December. Can't wait to see the rest of the tour.
Merry Christmas

This is just beautiful -- I love seeing the snow outside your windows. :) I especially love your tree, your fireplace with a cozy fire burning, and your LOVELY Nativity scene. Your decorations are all so pretty, and your photos really do them justice.

Thank you for sharing and I'm looking forward to Part 2.

It all looks beautiful. It makes want to finish decorating. Sadly there is just not enough time to do it all. It is very festive.
