Christmas Tour of Homes







Join the tour, won't you?

Welcome to Canada! My dreams have come true and we're having a white Christmas!

Come on in. As you come up the stairs this is what you will see. Now come on over to the tree.... Oops! First you'll have to get past the "Present Protector!"


My tree is decorated primarily with red and gold ornaments. Then I add all the special gift ones and then the homemade ones. Each year my husband and I try to make an ornament for our tree. I just love putting them on the tree because each one tells a story.

Below the tree is my unique family of moose. These are some of my favorite holiday decor. Here's a close up...




Here's another one on the couch.


Now you head over to my snowman family, reminding me how much fun snow can be!




Here we have our reindeer....




In the kitchen I have put up greenery, lights & ribbon strung along the top ridge of the cabinets. It makes a wonderful lighting effect in the evenings. (Those are my new Christmas curtains I made today!)





Finally, won't you join me in the dining room?...another snowman, birdhouse with greens, and lots of candles & candy!



This is my dining table. I have a simple center piece with candles in it. I just love it! Here's a close up...


Thank you for sharing in my home tour. It's nice to be able to share in others' creativity and share ideas. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Jessica! Thanks for stopping by today! I love how you've done your home - such a great idea for above the kitchen cabinets - I think I'll try that next year! I especially love the "Present Protectore" lol!!!
So wonderful! God bless you!

I enjoyed touring your home! Cute moose collection. I have a lot of deer, but only two moose - one is a large white fluffy moose pillow!

Love your Christmas curtains!

Thanks for the tour!

Your decorations are so beautiful and I love your snowmen.

I absolutely could NOT handle all that snow! It's beautiful to look at, but I sure hate to be cold!

Merry Christmas! I enjoyed the visit!
