Christmas Tour 2010 Front/Liv Room/Blog Hop

So glad you could join our 2nd day of our Home
Tour..The Front Porch/Living Room.
Yes we are having a Blog Hop @ the end..

Below is the pic of the Front of our house with
probably 100 candy canes/thousand of lights
& our spotlighted reindeer's/trees.

I love the front door of oval glass (a gift from
my daughters a few yrs back) So a BIG WARM

These are some of the items I have on the

I have 2 Huge Silk Poinsettias at the door
which dress it up a lot.
(Below) This is a mat that I made a lot of yrs. ago.
It's sorta like cross-stitch..& has worn pretty well.

I love this little gingerbread type house..
Welcome sign...

My front window is one of my fav things with 2
adorable snowmen & a skate "Welcome to the
Warming House" Sign..I got the sign @ Target
yrs ago..& the snowmen @ Walmart yrs ago.

This tall wooden Santa I made at one of our
Super Saturdays at church..
As we enter the house we see a wonderful 3'
Santa's Sleigh (that my sister got me for
Christmas yrs ago) It's one of my all time
Favorite things. I love the "Polar Express"
Santa" which talks about the Believe Bell &
the Magic of Christmas!

This photo shows you the Christmas Village wall.
I love it! It's so much FUN!

I always Love Carolers & the Dickens Englishness
of these particular carolers.
This photo shows one of the other walls..
Where my Nativity Collection is.

Like I said before I love carolers..especially
this wonderful girl caroler & English Lamp
post. She is still working after 15+ yrs. I got
her @ Costco..Also the beautiful Angel Wall-
hanging yrs ago.
Below is our real Christmas tree..We have
a real one in the living room & artfcial tree
in the family room (I'll show you in a couple
days) Looking to the right is part of my
Nativity Collection.

This is a small wisemen pillow I made
years ago.

One of my favorite things is the Welcome sign
from Solvang, Ca. Swedish Village & the great
manger scene quilt a friend of mine made.

Another favoite thing I love is my Willow
Tree Manger scene & the stacker (I made)
& the Vinyl tile I sell on Etsy.

This Manger scene I got while I lived in Australia
for 1 1/2 yrs. it holds special memories..
I love this wisemen photo & branch twig.

Especially this scene I love because of how
the Savior looks over the city of Jerusalum.
Also the Vinyl charger below of Wise men still
seek him. I make these to sell.
I made this a number of years ago..Supplies @ Michaels

Hope you enjoyed the Front/Liv. Room Tour.
