Christmas House Tour 2015


Welcome to my Christmas House Tour.  It’s been a while but I’m back blogging about getting ready for the Christmas Holiday Season at our house.  It is so hard to believe that when we haul out all the boxes we can turn this:

Probably my favorite Christmas project was cleaning out my corner cabinets, removing the doors, and decorating them for the Holidays.  Handy made the corner cabinets and he had beautiful handmade leaded glass doors so he wasn’t too keen on taking them off but he did it for me. I love it because I get to see my decorated shelves.  He’s still not too happy but I’m hoping it will grow on him.  I’m already thinking about what spring will bring in these new display cabinets.

Since every entrance needs to welcome and reflect the holiday season, I added a few holidays touches to the front porch.


I had a grand idea of switching everything up to a “White Christmas” theme but when I unpacked everything it became evident that an enormous investment would have to be made to update everything  – so baby steps.  I started with the tree, inside fireplace mantel, and a few items here and there.  By the time I finish – I’m sure I will want something different.

Thanks for stopping by my 2015 Christmas House Tour!
