Christmas Open House - Come On In!

Kimba at "A Soft Place To Land" is hosting an open house - I have wanted to participate in one, and I finally found time to get the photos!

As you come up to my house you would see the lights and garlands on the picket fence, lamppost and arch!

In the living room is our tree -

Here is a close up...

The top of the piano is one of my favorites...

On top of my Great Grandmother's China Hutch...

Our chandelier....

I love our Nativity...I placed it up on top of the kitchen cabinets a few years ago, and we liked it there so well, we place it there every year now.

This garland is over the door that goes out onto our deck...

This shelf is in the bathroom...

This year I hung a garland across our headboard, from post to post. It adds romance, and makes the room cozy.

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!
