Home For The Holidays

There's no place like home for the holidays.

Welcome back to my little home tour. When I left you last it was at the front door. Please come in and make yourself at home.
The Dining room is to the right of the door just off the entry. Our Christmas tree stands in the window facing the front of the house.
Santa greets us in the entry.
Going into the dining room as we pass to the kitchen and living room.
Last year I found these 2 vintage arched windows for each side of my vintage hutch. Backed them with lace, and they are perfect to display Christmas stockings. The wall looks yellow in the pic, but it is a light sand.
Lastly our Christmas tree. This year I used silver, gold, white and light pink cottage roses and ornaments to decorate this tree. It is filled with snowflakes and crystal collectibles. The star at the top is a cherished gift from Randi, my dear friend from Norway.
Thank you for taking a moment to visit. Next time, I'll share a few more decorations throughout my cottage.
I am so enjoying visiting many of you and seeing all the pretties for the holiday.
Have a Merry Day~

Wow, your dining room is stunning! I am amazed at all the beautiful details, the dining set is gorgeous, the wrought iron headers (not sure what you call them) above your windows are so elegant! Of course your tree and decorations are magnificent also. The table runner and the beautiful arched frames are awesome too! Truly a warm and inviting home, thanks for sharing it with us. ~Diane

Wow! The tree!!! I can't believe we have so much in common. I choose almost the same colourscheme this year! I took gold, white, creme, green and soft pink this year. So amazing. We so much love the same things. Anyway........ everything looks just perfect, so YOU and so inviting. I love it when someone has its own style and it's so obvious when it's from your hand. I love it all! It is all so cozy and warm looking! I hope you will have the most wonderful Christmas this year!
Blessings and hugs,
Ingeborg

That's it...I'm moving in with you! lol Oh my, what a gorgeous home you have and I absolutely love the way you've decorated it! Everything looks so warm and welcoming and of course your Christmas tree is stunning. Those 2 vintage arched windows are certainly wonderful finds and such a great idea to back them with lace. Perfect indeed to hang stockings from them:-) xoxo

Celestina,
I am in love with you home. The white stone in the dining room is beautiful, and I bet the Santa at the entry greets you with his jolliness every day. I love the black hutch which displays so many pretties. Your tree with the pink and gold is perfect for this special season. I was noticing the outside of your house below, and it is just gorgeous. It looks so magical all lit up. Thank you for sharing with us a bit of your home. I love viewing homes - it's such a treat.
