Christmas Home Tour 2014

Saturday, December 20, 2014

It's almost Christmas! Here's a quick spin around our old farm house. I'm starting in the sun room where I've added a white spray painted limb with snowflakes to the ladder shelf.

My tree is also in the sun room this year.

This paper angel has been on top of our Christmas tree for 25 years or longer. When Levi (my grandson) was 3 years old, he asked me why I had a scarecrow on top of my tree. He informed me that I was supposed to have a star and when I told him that I didn't have a star, he made me one... a pe'fect star. We've laughed over that scarecrow! It was precious and so is my star!
Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a manger, since the birth of Christ is why we celebrate.
In the dining room, I have a white painted grapevine wreath with a sprig of red berries, an old ice-cream churn filled with tree trimmings and vintage birds, and a ruler star hanging in one of the kitchen windows.
I have a little pink in my bathroom...

...and in my bedroom I have a few vintage touches... a Santa with a "Season's Greetings", a bird's nest with a red ball and a garden urn filled with gold balls.

Our stocking are hung by chimney with care... and with old soda bottles... in hopes that Saint Nick soon will be here!
While visions of sugar plums dance in our heads!
May you experience the miracle of Christmas through God's gift to you... His Son.

Here's a Heart Rock for your Pocket:
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9

Wishing you God's best and a Merry Christmas,

  1. I've loved your countdown to Christmas. Your decorations have been a fun gift of inspiration to me. So I thought I would stop by and share my own tree topper story. When our daughter was a toddler, I took a craft class and made an angel for the tree top, We used it for a number of years, somewhere she lost her wings but I put it up anyway, The tree was so tall, who would know?
    Then I bought a star and tossed the angel. And I was questioned as to what I had done with the monkey that we had used! Not everyone had a monkey and she had liked ours! Thanks for stirring the memories!

    1. Oh, you my husband and I good laugh! I think your story trumps mine! Merry Christmas!

  2. I love following your post ,and your tour and story was wonderful,it is wonderful to share Jesus birth,and what he does for us each and every day.
