Merry Christmas From Our Home to Yours

Merry Christmas from our family to yours! May it be a blessed Christmas filled with peace and joy! I know it's kind of late in the game, but I thought I'd join in BooMama's Christmas tour of homes. Just think of it as a Christmas Eve candlelight tour.

Welcome to our home! Won't you please come in?

First, as you come in the front door, we have a few different views of the foyer. Here is part of my teapot and tea cup collection
and then there are a few shots of the lights and garlands going up the staircase as well as on the rail upstairs overlooking the foyer.

Here we have a view of the dining room trees and garland.

Now we'll head into the living room

a view of the tree and fireplace.

the top of our mantel

a little tree on the top of a roll top desk

a vignette on top of a china cabinet.

Here is a centerpiece I made for the dining room table. I filled a dish with vintage ornaments. These belonged to my grandfather when he was a little boy.

Another view of the ornaments and the dining room Christmas tree.

Here is a display on a table in the foyer

This is a hall table in the hallway going into the kitchen.

My mother's sled that she played with as a little girl.

And now we're headed into the formal living room. Here are two trees on an old buffet server that I found at a flea market.

Another view of the dining room. Did I already post this picture? Hmmm.....I think I did.

The Nativity scene in the basement family room.

Also in the basement, a vintage glass tree

and last but not least, our basement family room tree!
