HOLIDAY HOME TOUR 2010


Welcome to our home, all dressed up for the holiday season.  This year I rested some of my usual decorations and bought aand made a few new things.  I decorated with red, green and silver. 





I was inspired to make this garland by a magazine photo.  I found a big container of these mixed ornaments at the hardware store back in October and started planning my theme back then!






This is a close-up of one of the ornament clusters made with the mixed ornaments.  The mix even included stars, snowflakes and bells!  It was a real find.  I purchased the red and silver garland from the same store.







I found some red snowflakes to add to the mix.







The view from my kitchen.

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care, except for Maggie's which is spending Christmas in New Jersey this year.







My little collection.








A tablescape.




So that is it for this year.  I hope you enjoyed touring my little house and all the holiday sparkle.

Enjoy the holiday season and have a Happy New Year!

For more home tours, join our hostess  Jen on the Edge here.

Beautiful decorations. The only thing we have up is our tree. It's a decidedly non-decorated Christmas around here this year.

It's so pretty. I love the garlands -- I need to do something with my stairs.

Oh my, I love how pulled together and elegant everything looks. The garlands are beautiful. I'm so impressed with your mantel -- when we had a fireplace, I was never able to get ours to look so nice.
