A Christmas House Tour

Merry Christmas to all of you!  I hope that you have a very
special time celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior
with your families.  Today I'm going to take you on a
little Christmas house tour- this is the home I grew up in
and it's where my dear Mom and Dad still live.  There
are lots of pictures, hope you don't mind!
Come on in!  My Mom is very good decorating with details
as you will soon see.  She made this cute Christmas door decoration
with a silver platter and creamer and some pine branches.  First
we will tour the living room.  Mom calls it her "parlour".

This was my Great-Grandparent's nativity.  I love it!  In the back
there is a place for candles, and the heat would make the angels
go around and around.  You can tell it did catch fire one time!

Another family nativity on the organ.

I love this rose tea set!

Mom made the trees out of cereal boxes and spray painted them.

Wouldn't it be fun to eat at this table?  She clipped little candles
to each plate charger- a little detail that would be so fun.

This doll belonged to my Great-Aunt.  Isn't she cute?

I love how my Mom packed this box with family treasures.
The photo is my Great-Grandma.

Mom has little fun things to look at throughout their house.
She made these trees out of scrapbooking paper, cut in
little rectangles and glued to styrofoam cones.

In the kitchen my Mom grouped these trees together next
to her miniature village on the antique kitchen cupboard.
It used to belong to another Great-Aunt.

Moving on to the family room- she decorates
this room in a more natural, rustic style.
There are lots of birds in this room, especially at Christmas!

Mom made the little twig tree and candle holder- I love
this grouping together with the vintage elk and antler!

And at last Santa's coming on his sleigh!
I hope you enjoyed the tour-
Merry Christmas to all!


  1. I loved seeing your mom's house. Did she do a Christmas tree in every room again? I wish I was there to make Christmas decorations with her. I liked seeing all of the things she made - especially the Christmas trees.

  2. Now I now where you get your lovely decorating talents from,lol!
    Carmen, your parents home is very beautiful and your mum has a wonderful gift for creating pretty vignettes and lovely crafty things!
    Thanks for showing us these great photos - I really enjoyed seeing them :-)
    I hope you and your precious family have a very happy and blessed Christmas filled with the joy of the Lord!
    love and blessings..Trish xx
