Christmas Tour of Homes

Thank you Boo Mama for hosting Christmas Tour of Homes. Stop by so you can see all the beautiful Christmas decorations. So welcome to my humble home. Let me share some of my favorites.

This is our front door.
The stairs.
The tree.
These picture frames with us and the kids. (Check out my “fro”. This is why my hair is long.)
Front hall.
My daughter made this wreath in fifth grade. She's now 24.
The fireplace with my Christmas village on top. Close up of part of the village.
Nativity globe
I always loved this kneeling Santa.
I made this Christmas angel.
The wooden nativity was handmade by a friend.

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my home.

What a beautiful wreath & tree and I love your village! As soon as the TV leaves the mantle I plan on putting up a village during Christmas. I've always loved them!

Thanks for stopping in and visiting my home!

I noticed on your profile that we share the same love of 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. That has to be one of my all time favorites!

What a cool idea to do a "tour." The decorations are beautiful. I am particularly fond of the staircase.

Kelly @ Love Well said...

The frame ornaments are precious.

And personally, I love the fro. Hair is supposed to be big. I'm sure it says that somewhere.

Jendi said...

Thank you, I did enjoy the tour.
I've always thought that garland on stairways is nice. I think my favorite is the wooden nativity. It looks like it could survive in a house with 3 kids. :)

The stairs are amazing. I love your kneeling Santa too!

Tamara said...

Very pretty! I love the wooden nativity. The Santa kneeling at the manger reminds me of the children's musical "Santa Bowed at Christmas", which our children's choir performed a few years ago. So sweet!

SAHMmy Says said...

Great collection! I love your daughter's wreath and the handmade Nativity!

Elle*Bee said...

I have the kneeling Santa ornament on my tree. I did something similar last year, although I only photographed my tree. If I get organized (and new batteries for the camera), perhaps I'll try mine. Thanks for sharing!

Very pretty! I especially like your handmade angel and the staircase decoration.

AuburnGalAlways said...

The handmade wooden Nativity is gorgeous. I love it all, though! I'm late visiting the Christmas tour of homes. I was a little busy with the usual Christmas rush of replacing broken appliances. Wait? You mean not everyone has 2 appliances to break during Christmas? I must be special!
