Welcome to my Christmas Home Tour … coordinated by the “All Things Home” group! I’m so excited and honored to have you visiting my humble abode during the holiday season. This past week I’ve felt like one of Santa’s Elves scurrying about in a flurry preparing for Christmas! I hope you’ll take time this week to visit all the houses on this week’s virtual Christmas Home Tour … there are 30 in all, filled with Christmas eye candy galore just for you! And at the end of this post is a chance to win a $200 gift card from One King’s Lane.
Also … I’m participating in Jennifer Rizzo’s Deck the Halls Party!
Now onto the tour of my circa 1875 farmhouse. Let’s get started in the dining room …
… but something got into me and I chose this festive color for my 2013 Christmas tablescape.
Silver chargers add a bit of glitter to the table.
Bend them into a circle and twist the ends together to form your napkin ring.
Greens and berries add color and texture while a red and white ribbon adds a bit of whimsy.
My corner hutch is always fun to decorate throughout the seasons.
We installed the open shelving earlier this year and I quickly loaded it with white ironstone.
Each one is adorned with a white ironstone dish and a blue mason jar stuffed with tulle and red berries.
On December 12th I’ll share the other half of my kitchen during the Farmhouse Christmas Tour with 8 other bloggers. Yes, that’s right … even more Christmas inspiration for you, but this time with a farmhouse theme!
Let’s head on into the living room for more of my Christmas Home Tour.
I do not like stringing the lights, however!
We cut down our tree at Lee’s Trees.
I was looking for the perfectly imperfect tree.
Even the tag said “Charlie Brown Tree” on it. The price was a mere $25! Perfect!
Last year I trimmed lots of branches off our tree … I didn’t want to have to do that again to fit the ornaments.
This beautiful rooster pillow is from The Everyday Home’s Shops.
I want to give Barb’s online shop a shout-out as a way to thank her for organizing this tour!
Here’s this week’s Christmas Home Tour schedule. Enjoy!!
