My Christmas Home for Friday Show and Tell



  Today I am participating in Show and Tell Friday Hosted by MY Romantic Home - please click on her button in my side bar if you would like to see the other participants and see what wonderful things they have posted about today.

I didn't know if I would show pictures of my Christmas home to all of you out there - but I decided to go ahead and jump in on the Christmas bandwagon.  I know many of the beautiful homes out there are done in all white motifs, but as I have gotten older, I have found that I need more color in my surroundings.


As you can see, I pretty much like all the colors of the rainbow.   Most of the decorations you see I have had for many years.  In fact, this year is the first time I have added any new items.  I tell my husband it is my way of helping the down economy!!  I do like to decorate anything that doesn't move.


This is the first time I have decorated my hutch in my dining room.  I'm not exactly sure why I haven't done that before.  But - better late than never!

I made this little tree yesterday and used both old things I have around the house and a few new bulbs I bought at Hobby Lobby this year.


And last, but not least, is my collection of Nutcrackers.  I have been collecting them for years and it seems every year I never know where to place them.  So this year I have only incorporated a few of them in my displays.  Every time I look at them they remind me of the place and time I either purchased them or they were given to me by my wonderful husband.

Well, that is an abbreviated tour of my Christmas house.  It may not be the prettiest Christmas house on the block, but it is my house and it is much loved!

                                      BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL THIS CHRISTMAS TIME!

  6. Your home looks so cozy and festive. I love all the rich colors. The hutch looks fabulous!! And the little tree you made is cute...how talented you are.

    I started to collect nutcrackers when the kids were small, but they were afraid of them and their 'teeth'!!

    Happy holidays! :-)

  7. I think your house looks wonderful-I love color too, especially the deeper, darker, jewel tones. I would *love* to be able to decorate in pinks & whites, but everytime I try, something makes me stop. So, I completely understand where you are coming from.

    Merry Christmas!

  8. Oh Jo, I LOVE your home! The colors are so rich and beautiful! You read my post yesterday about me not having an all white home, it's just not me either! The changes people are making to all white are beautiful, but I must be true to myself too... I am so happy to see you feel the same way... your hutch looks just breathtaking! And your nutcracker is too cute! Love to you... Bisous... Julie Marie
