Christmas House Tour 2012

I am linking up with Jen Rizzo Christmas house tour. Here are a few pictures of my Christmas decor for this year.  Thanks Jen for hosting this on your blog.  This is a lot of fun to see everyone's decor.  Some very beautiful homes and Christmas decor.

Here are some of my pictures.  Thanks for coming by.

This is my Family Room Christmas Tree.  I put it in an old vintage wagon from my garden.

This is the tree lit up at night.
Staying in the family room this is my old vintage mantel decorated.  I used an old ladder to hang the stockings.

This is the mantel lit up at night.  I used white lights in the angels.
This is above my tv cabinet in the family room.  The beautiful Santo's angel my daughter bought for me from Jennifer Rizzo at the Holiday Market this year in Morris.   She is so beautiful.  She somehow lost her crown when I got her that night and Jen is so sweet and made me a new one.  It is so pretty.  I took a close up so you could see the detail of this beautiful angel.

I took her down so I could get a better picture of her.  I love the old vintage pieces she used on this beautiful angel.  I embellished her a little bit too (sorry Jen I can't help myself).  I had an old antique ornament I put on her and Jen sent me the old vintage necklace along with the crown.  I also added some feather wings I had to her paper wings.
Small vintage bucket with a tree.
Stuffed wicker basket with vintage ornaments, burlap and lace and bottle brush tree
Moving into the kitchen. Old farmhouse truck and tree is a must in a farmhouse kitchen.

Thanks for taking a look at some of my Christmas Cottage Decor.  Thank you Jen for hosting this fun house tour party.


  1. Love all the white decor. I really like the Santos angel, too.

  2. I love all your angels and everything else. I saw that you likes someone's firetruck. You'll have to check out mine. It was my hubby's and it's almost 60 years old. You might have to scroll down a bit to see it. I have trees on it.

  3. Amazing! I love all of your Christmas decorations! That angel door hanging on yout front door is wonderful and I love the old sled and ice skates (I have mine from my childhood still) Everything is so beautiful - I could admire the pictures for hours! Thank you so much for sharing! Hugs, Leena

  4. I really love the old 'The Waltons' farm truck with the tree in the back - so clever and cute! I bet you have people ringing your doorbell to take a house tour for real!

  5. Oh my...I so love your home all decorated for Christmas!! Everything is so pretty!!
