Christmas Home Tour 2012

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is a week away. All the decorations are up so I thought I’d take you on a little tour of our home.

First, I’ll show you the decorations outside.

This is our outdoor tree.

This wreath looks really pretty when it’s lit at night.

Our snowman is new this year. We found him at the auction a few weeks ago.

But this snowman is really old. It belonged to my in-laws and they used it many years.

Come on. Let’s follow Juicy onto the front porch.

Come on inside!

Here’s our mantel and tree in our living room along with some other decorations, too.

The kitchen is all decorated for Christmas.

This cute chalkboard on a silver tray was made by my Secret Blogging Santa, Patty, who blogs at Always Something. I love the chalkboard, Patty, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know you through the Secret Santa gift exchange!

Even the pot stand on our deck got a little Christmas touch!

I hope you enjoyed your tour of our home.  I’m going to be very busy cooking and baking the next few days. We’re hosting my mother’s 90th birthday on Saturday and our family’s annual Christmas Eve Party next Monday. Whew! Can I get it all done before Santa arrives?

    I really enjoyed the tour and the natural theme this year. Our family home sure does shine with all the touches you and Leo have added. It does my heart good and I know Mother and Daddy are looking down with much pride. See you Christmas Eve and Happy Birthday to Miss Lou…. Jean

    So gorgeous! The front is especially charming and let’s you know you’re in for a treat when you step through the door! Now why didn’t I think to lay my glass block down and use it as a display??? Love it!

    Aunt Jane,

    Everything looks beautiful and looks like it is right out of a magazine. Love the mop angel. Would love to know the specifics of her….did you make her?

    Everything looks beautiful! I love your mop angel. She’s so charming. Your front porch is so inviting. Love all your little trees, and the snowmen, both inside and out are so festive. I do love me some snowmen!

    Sounds like you have lots to do, so take care, and have a Merry Christmas!!

    Merry Christmas, Jane & Leo! Your home looks beautiful (love the sweet comments to each other, I think you will start a trend in Blogland!!! lol). And wish your mom a very happy 90th birthday from me, please. xo Oh, the little red ornament with the sprigs arranged to look like holly is so great.

  10. says

    You have done a beautiful job decking your halls this year. It’s hard to pick my favorite…maybe it’s that darling tree on the porch. Hope you all enjoy your mom’s birthday party…my mom’s 85th party will be held on the 29th. Merry Christmas to you and Leo.


  11. says

    Whew is right! You have been a busy little elf…good job on everything. Still love those trees lined up on the dining room table. Hope you have a chance this weekend to sit down and enjoy the fruits of all your labor. Merry Christmas Jane!
