Christmas Tour of Homes

Welcome to my home! Merry Christmas! And thanks for caring enough about my decorations to check out my photos. If nothing else, these are proof that decorating can be done without a lot of cash-ola, fake fruit can work for ALL seasons, and red & green are NOT the only holiday colors.
I hope you enjoy my first ever Christmas Tour of Homes.

That's Addy's stocking down front. Yes, it is a lot bigger than ours. Yes, I bought my dog a stocking. Yes, Jeff thinks it is ridiculous.One of my favorite parts of our decorations: the tree topper. Jeff does this by hand very meticulously with my guiding from below; he is the best. Not to rag on the classic Star or Angel, but isn't this fun?!?!
If you are like my mom, you are thinking "Oranges? At Christmas?" Let me remind you of cloved oranges & the traditional "oranges in the stocking." See. I think about these things.
Haha. Remember this little guy?

That's all for now! Come back again!
(If you haven't already, be sure to check out the other great decorating ideas at The Nesting Place today! Guaranteed to help you waste MANY hours at work.)

  12. Loved your story of the first fight you broke up, also enjoyed visiting your house tour. I am a retired teacher after 37 years in the classroom.
    Stop by and visit my home and see how life is after retirement.
