HOLIDAY HOME TOUR - 2013

Welcome to my Holiday Home!  I have enjoyed joining Jen's tour for the past several years - this year my daughter Maggie was home from Philadelphia and helped me decorate,  Her aesthetic is more toward the simple and natural than mine. ( I tend to go crazy with color.)  We think we blended our styles pretty well!



This is our entry, I placed some of my Christmas collection with some candles next to my card tree - not a single card yet!!



This is our newly reconfigured great room - Maggie and I found this lovely wreath with eucalyptus at a crafts fair as our starting inspiration then added some sparkle.
.

 We took the usual stuff off the shelves and placed some shiny gold and silver things in their place.






We kept my favorite ceramic piece "The Cheeseburger Lovers" in place.




The dining room is festive in red, silver and gold.



These reindeer candle holders have been around for nearly 30 years - one broke last year and now they are too fragile to hold candles... still pretty though!


The tree!  Room for more presents...


My chubby new Santa joins the collection.



Our stockings are hung and ready to be filled with goodies.

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a healthy, happy 2014!

I really love all the white, gold and silver of your great room display - so elegant and festive! I don't know what the story is behind the "cheeseburger lovers" but they look awfully familiar - kind of like looking in the mirror on the , ahem, tail end of baking season.

Your house is so sparkly and bright! I LOVE all the gold in the dining room, especially the tinsel garland.

Susan, I love the shape of your tree and your beautiful decorations but for me, it's all about the Cheeseburger Lovers. I LOVE IT!

I love Eucalyptus wreaths too. They usually have them at my Trader Joes, but not this year.

Your home is so pretty!
This is the first time I've seen the Cheeseburger Lovers... I'm in love.

Beautiful...silver and gold, silver and gold...that's what I thought of Rudolph and the songs of my childhood. What a great gift to bring back memories with your decorations! Merry Christmas :D
