Holiday Tour of Homes

Here are some photos of the Christmas decorations in our home, as part of the Magical Holiday Home Christmas Tour of Homes


This is our living room tree, complete with ds's Lionel train. The quilted tree skirt was purchased our first year or marriage. Most of the ornaments are keepsakes that we've received over the years.


This is our most important display of all...the nativity.



Above is our kitchen table decorated for the holiday. We recently renovated the kitchen and the table is a new addition. We're really enjoying it.


This shelf is also in the kitchen. Can you tell I'm a Santa collector? These are from Home Interiors and I've had them for at leat 10 years.


These are two more of my Santas that my dear husband bought for me early in our marriage on top of an inherited china closet. The china is also inherited from a great aunt, who was also a first grade teacher.



This is the centerpiece on the dining room table. For some reason the candles look orange to me, but they are red.


This is my dining room chandelier. It's covered in toile ribbon, gold beads and greens.



This is our living room fireplace. The print above the fireplace was a gift to dh a few years ago. It is by wildlife artist Dan Christ. He does wonderful work.

Thank you for checking out my photos. I'm planning on adding room shots and hopefully some pictures of our outside decorations later this week.

Have a Christmas season full of blessings,

Lisa
