to our home!
We are so happy you are here.
Step on in out of the cold, and share some
Our home is all cozy..
and decorated just right...
We hope that you will stay...
for a while tonight...
As you enter the door...the one in the middle on the porch, you step into our
|The ceramic goose I made years ago sits upon the dining room table in an old grape collection box from one of the wonderful wineries in our area.|
|To the left you will meet Santa and a gingerbread man....|
|Atop the mantel sits my Christmas village.....|
|Also in the dining room is my special tree...I call it my Blogging tree, because nearly every ornament on it I have received from a dear blogging friend during a swap or as a thoughtful gift.|
|...as we pass through the kitchen, you can see more signs of my sweet blogging friends......a lovely mat....|
|.....some sweet gingers in a box of greens, along with a wee mousie who just recently came to live with us...|
|On the windowsill above my sink, snowmen smile and brighten my day.|
If you turn around...you will see our wood stove. The hearth and chimney are still awaiting their makeover....
|Kitty Kismet is certainly enjoying the fire......she doesn't stray far from that spot most days.|
|The shelves above the hearth are reclaimed barnwood from the room. The Mister carefully planed them down to reveal the lovely chestnut wood grain, and I lightly stained and sealed them before decorating them up.|
|Santa and Elmer and Mr. Snowman...add such a festive touch to the room.|
|Scene atop my large armoire and the manger atop my pie safe...|
|Little touches of Christmas tucked here and there...and my favorite little reading nook beside the wood stove.|
|...where once there was a wall, with two ever so tiny windows...now I get to enjoy the view to the north and east...and watch the sweet sparrows huddled in the wisteria awaiting their turn at the feeder...|
As we head on back through the dining room, we are greeted by my snowgal...
before we come upon our spiral staircase...all decked out with Christmas garland and our homemade stockings...
We finish up in the parlor to the left.....
As we finish up our visit...I hate to see you go. Thank you for taking the time to visit us. You are always welcome....drive carefully and have a very blessed Christmas season!
