The Farm House Christmas Tour
Well I'm not going to have anymore scheduled parties at our house!
Because, the very first one I scheduled brought on our first blizzard!!!
So, to avoid anymore bad weather, I'm only inviting guests into
our home via the computer.
Of course surprise visits are still welcome and preferred!!
With that said...
Welcome to our home!
I still have boxes of decorations up in the spare bedroom
that I draw from on an on-going basis.
But, for the most part, our home is decorated enough.
Have a little look-see for yourself.....
the gathering place....
It's a little eclectic, but it's all country.
Americana on the hutch....
the ironing board Santa welcomes all who enter our door!
From this angle I caught Max peeking around the corner.
He's wondering what the heck I'm taking pictures of today??
"I'm blogging again Max"
This is my "niche" above the kitchen sink...
it's my answer to useless cupboard space that is too high to reach.
I removed 3 cupboard doors,
and now it's my niche!
It's usually filled with a seasonal display all year round.
Now, it's filled with some French country!
Now onto the living room...
We live in a small 4 square farm house so there's not a lot of space!
My village sits on top of the bookshelves, Santa's everywhere, garlands strewn about....
it all makes for a warm, sparkling, and cozy environment in the winter time!
My "Attic Baby" Santa gets a special place on the couch
until the grand-kids come,
then he goes up on a high shelf.
That's real sheep's wool on his coat and beard.
Again the space issue always makes for a challenge when shopping for Christmas trees.
I like decorating my artificial skinny tree, it fits the room!
Sall never has anything nice to say about my skinny tree,
he prefers the real thing!
There's no surprise when it comes to our decorations...
it's all about the pheasant!
Pinecones and Pheasants
Fruits and Berries
on outdoorsy theme that we both agree on!
Some close-up shots of the ornaments....
Fake, faux, artificial...I don't care, I still love my pheasant tree
and all of it's beautiful adornments!!!
All right Max, it's time for a coffee break.....
Have a pleasant day...
and if you're bored you can surprise me with a visit.
I'll leave the coffee pot on!
