I’m participating in a virtual Holiday House Tour put on by Jen on the Edge. It was a natural fit since I usually share photos of our decorations. To see the other houses on the tour you can go to this page.
We’ll start with the front door area.
To the right of the door are our received Christmas cards. I know it’s a dying act, but I do so love to send and receive cards every year.
Still in the entry way, this is my display on top of the divider looking into the living room. The gingerbread house plays the Nutcracker Suite. Originally I had envisioned 3 candy dishes and searched thrift stores for what I wanted. I found the one candy dish and then liked how it looked without being a grouping. Unfortunately, I still haven’t made it to the candy store this year to fill it with ribbon candy. Definitely on the list for next year!
Off the entryway is the living room.
The paper chains were made by the girls at the beginning of the month. I really love how they add to the room. As this is a functional room, on the floor you can see our Christmas puzzle we’ve been working on. Also, there’s a tray that holds Tabitha’s bead work for bracelets she’s making for friends.
Same view of just the lights.
Close ups of the fireplace area with a basket of Christmas books and another of stuffed animals. This is where we keep a few Christmas toys like a wooden Santa’s Workshop and a bucket of indoor snowballs. Also is a close up of Tabitha’s tree.
A close up of the real tree and also the top of one of the bookcases.
At the other end of the living room we have our Little People display. Tabitha sets it all up perfectly and Daisy spends the rest of the month playing with it however she wants. It’s a good system.
Next we’ll move into the dining room. This is where Daisy has her tinsel tree and also her Playmobil set from last year’s advent calendar.
In the kitchen I have lovely gingerbread displays and a welcome mat.
Even the bathroom is not immune from my decorating.
And that completes the tour. Thanks for looking
