Holiday Home Tour

I don't know about the rest of you, but I like my house more during the holidays than any other time of the year. With the trees, lights, decorations, and good smells, it is so cozy and comfortable.

As I was finishing up the major cleaning (to be ready for the messes to be made this coming week!) I was admiring the afternoon light coming in and how beautiful everything looked bathed in the glow. You know I'm not a photographer, so I can't capture what I was seeing. Just use your imagination!

Family room, part of kitchen.
Sam wanted to say hello.

Up until last year, the cabinets were dark green. I'm still deciding whether I like them:)
Counter display with Christmas cards. Love to see everyone's growing families.
Our bedroom. Lots of local artists' ornaments here.
Living room.

Favorite Christmas books.
Rick made this hutch for one of our first Christmases.
Can you believe that I got this church at an antique store for $7.00?
Now up the stairs...
The upstairs, with my craft room and guest room is done in pastels. This tree has tiny glass ornaments.
Well, that's the end of the tour. I hope you enjoyed it. We try to go on a holiday tour every year. One of my favorite houses to see is our state representative's. It is over the top for Christmas, just like the lady herself, but so fun and so much to look at. Not my style, but I enjoy it anyway, you know?

Have a great weekend!
