Christmas House Tour

My computer was down so, I'm having to jam all my Christmas posts into one Giant one. I'm almost ready for the big Day!

 Presents are wrapped.

 Tree is decorated

 Mantle is finished

Stockings hung........

Living Room is finished......

I put lights on the windows of the sunroom this year.  Gives it a wonderful glow at night.

I set the little table in there using red and my blue willow.

Napkins were a wonderful "thrifty" find. So nicely starched and fresh!

This year, I added some little ornaments on the head board of the "red" bedroom.

These pillow cases were a wonderful thrifty find last year.

Here's the dining room tablescape this year.

It was inspired by this cute galvanized Yuletide bucket that my wonderful friend  gave me this year for Christmas. She has excellent taste, and knows what I love. :)

It worked so perfectly with the "thrifty" find table runner and placemats  I had already planned to use.  I got all 5 pieces for $4!
I also decided to get in on the "plaid" Christmas theme, which I love. I found these plates yesterday at Cracker Barrel for half off.

The cute Christmas tin is another gift from my friend.

Wish I knew how to do the fancy chalkboard stuff. :)

My FAVORITE gift my friend gave me. I had given her this Hallmark ornament in l989 when it first came out.
(We both love Christmas mice)

She found it on line for me this year. Love it!

This is a gift I bought for me. Love this F&F little platter!

Happy Christmas to All my Bloggy Friends!

I'm joining "The Scoop" this week, and "Met Monday" at Between Naps on the Porch,
and "Tweak It Tuesday" at Cozy Little House.

This is just PRECIOUS! What a wonderful Christmas house with all the pops of red and holiday decor. There are so many things I love, including that precious pillowcase. How darling it is! AD that Yuletide Tree Farm bucket. And the plaid dishes, and all the checks and things. You did a great job!
