Christmas Home Tour 2009



The Nester is having a Christmas Tour of Homes!

Welcome and come on in...

If I have said it once, I have said it a million times.
I LOVE Christmas.
It is just such a magical time of year. I start looking forward to it on December 26th.



I LOVE my Santa too. He was a gift from my sister-in-law several years ago. He sings and dances like a man half his age.


This poinsettia was a gift from our neighbors. I am trying to keep it alive until Christmas!









Not much Christmas here, but did you notice Sulley, our Elf on a Shelf?



Christmas in the kitchen:



I used the vintage colored Christmas lights on top of the cabinets this year. My kitchen just didn't have enough color!


Snowmen in the red room:



I got the snowman angel at Golightly's several years ago before I worked there. Sometimes his carrot nose falls off, but I still love him.




Christmas in the bathroom:



The Pink room:












A Christmassy Master Bedroom:





Our Fireman tree for my fireman:



I have these wreaths up all year, but I just added a Christmas ball to make them more festive.


And a little bit of Christmas in the master bathroom:


And even though I love my Santa's and Snowmen, this is what Christmas is really all about:

Happy Birthday Jesus!

I loved your tour....so very festive. But I especially loved the fireman tree. LOL...I have a big time fisherman in my family and have a fishing tree too. But I didn't put it up this year. Now...I am thinking twice about it. :) Come for a visit.

rachel said...

came from the nester. i LOVE your home and all the decor!!!! i am absolutely in love with the first tree you showed. WOW!!!!! your ceiling is amazing too. what a cool house!!

Kayren, Pink Daisy Girl said...

Came by from the Nester's...you have a really unique house...cool! You also have some really unique ornaments and decorations. I loved looking at them. I've never known anyone who has rooms named by a color, and I'm so boring they are named by a kid or else everything is pretty much blue, my favorite color. And I don't have decorations all over my house...yet...someday.

Merry Christmas!
