CHRISTMAS IS IN DA HOUSE!

This is Christmas 2010. Just thought we could look back and enjoy a little inspiration.
 Welcome everyone!  Christmas is finely up and running at our house! 
But, first I had to deal with this..........(does anyone else' house look like this?)..
Bags and totes and boxes oh my!
Dog dishes and cat beds...........
Step stools and bird perches..........

Fred was ready to fly the coop!



I had to clear off my shelves in order to put up the garland......

I have my white Amaryllis, Paper Whites, and Orchids on this table......
My little purple Orchid...(I don't know the botanical name).
Antique silver tray with more Paper Whites.....
Dining room tree with a lace table cloth from an estate sale....
I found this nice slim, pre-lit tree in a local thrift store......

I printed out a copy of this neat Santa from the internet somewhere?
Mod Podged it to a piece of scrapbook paper...

moved my little theme tree to the counter in the kitchen.....


Shelves after garland is put on.......

The wooden Santa I cutout and painted many, many moons ago.....
my Christmas cardinal plates from Lenox.......
A Santa dog from Christmas in the Country show........


archway to living room.........
Mr. Moose on the dining room door....he sings Christmas carols.

living room tree.........

Looking up into our loft bedroom front window.....
Stairway to our bedroom........
the coffee table in living room........

Christmas village on top of my blogging area.....
and behind my blogging area.......





front windows in living room......

looking up to bedroom.......
switching to outside...this is our driveway looking towards road....
Santa and Rudolf by lamp post......


front porch......

porch watch dog......
evergreen in an urn with bowling ball painted silver.....


a Japanese maple with lights.....

back inside the front foyer......a little wash stand I painted white.....




So this is the end of the tour....ready for some eggnog with rum? brandy? How 'bout BOTH!
I AM!

Oh, your home is lovely. I think that was a really neat idea to frame that image of Santa. I love that. Happy VTT!

Anna said...

Your displays and decorations are lovely. I had a lot of cleaning to do myself before I could decorate...and lots of plastic bins.

We keep all the boxes in our sun room which is small enclosed porch that we don't much use in the winter so that they don't drive me nuts in the house. Otherwise they would probably take over. You have done a beautiful job, I love the lace cloth you are using for a tree skirt. The photo of that tree that shows your full living room is amazing. And the photo with the lighted garland and everything lighted is so dreamy. You have a beautiful style. Thanks so much for adding this post to The Christmas Party!

You have a beautiful home all decked out for Christmas! I've enjoyed the tour...thanks! ~Cheryl

Christine Jargick said...

WOW! Very festive home! And, yes, mine did look like that too - boxes around, bird stuff, dog stuff, etc.

Allison said...

It looks beautiful! Love you village and the flowers. Thanks for linking up!

Bella said...

Oh I love it, your home is beautiful, and one of my favorite parts were all those paper lilies in all those pretty cups, I love that so much.

THANK You SO much for always linking up to **Amaze me AUgust** and supporting my blog, I appreciate it and LOVE having you.

Just wondering, what happened with all your blog buttons, they are covering the comments section and everything is kind of overlapping. Do you need any help trying to get it all organized, I MIGHT be able to help, just let me know.

THANKS again,

Bella :)
