A Christmas House Tour...


Last Friday night, I had to miss our Sunday School class' Christmas party because our daughter wasn't feeling well. I really hated to miss it, too. However, I seem to be making up for it this week, since it seems there are Christmas parties around every corner in BlogLand!

BooMama is hosting a Christmas Tour of Homes over at her place. I'm sharing a few things from our house.
Here is the garland on our piano. We don't have a fireplace, so we dress up the piano like a mantel. I shared my garland over at The Nester's Garland Show and Tell, but I added a bit more to it since then, and I think it looks much better. Not as puny understated as before.

This is our tree. Every ornament is different. Here are a few of my favorite ornaments:

a Shepherd that was a gift from my mom

a Santa with a dreidel that my Father-in-law brought back from Denmark many years ago

a cardinal (I've developed a love of redbirds this year)

And finally, my nativity that I've had since I was a little girl:

And Ol' Saint Nick watching over it all!

I think I had the same nativity when I was little! Too bad my mom didn't keep it!

Dana and Daisy said...

Merry Christmas,
