Christmas Home Tour 2011

~ ~ ~and singing I have been doing my friends. I do love this time of year and decorating my home for the holidays. I have Christmas Caroles playing all day. I just love using Pandora.
I covered these letters from Michael's with Mod Podge, hymnal pages and hung them over the archway between the dining room and living room. How do you like them?

This is my small china cabniet in the entranceway landing.

I just love a cozy home when it's cold outside.

The top of the tree.
Gotta love glitter and stars!

~ ~ ~and more stars.

It is just a tiny 4 foot tree but I love the sparkle and shine.

Do you remember Department 56? These angels are about 30 years old and I still love them and put them out every year. They were a gift from my Mother.

The tree sits on a tiny antique table in a corner of the living room.

The picture beside the china is one of my favorites. A boy and girl sitting on a swing. She has her hands in a fur muff. Wouldn't that be fun instead of gloves?

I think I used 6 garlands for the archway doubling them up for a lush look. Then I poked extra stems of greens in here and there too.
Behind the curtins are the French doors to the sunroom.

I have linked up to these Christmas Parties:

Between Naps On The Porch

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I wish that all your Dreams come true this holiday season.

May you have Peace, Joy and Abundance of Happiness.

Love to all of you,

Hello my dear Ahrisha! I have missed visiting. I am happy to have a Christmas tour. Everything looks beautiful. Did you make Mom's fruitcake? I wanted to but things are getting too hectic. But I will try it someday. ((Hugs)) xo
