Welcome to our Christmas Home Tour. We live in southern Ontario, Canada and with the recent arrival of snow and cold cold weather, Christmas is definitely in the air, both inside and out. If you've stopped by from some of my favourite bloggy linky parties, I hope you enjoy the tour! There are lots of pictures.
Quoting one of my favourite bloggers, Melissa from The Inspired Room,
"And no perfection allowed, as you will see. Real life. At my house, we are decorating for ourselves, not to show the world how perfect our home is (because it isn’t) or how magazine cover worthy every corner is (because CLEARLY it isn’t)." Melissa, The Inspired Room
Warning: Photo Heavy!
We went with a simpler theme outdoors this year, white lights, white muslin bows and greenery.
Santa's on the t.v. cabinet in the family room too.
Also in the family room is our main family tree, with all our collected, school made, and handcrafted ornaments. This is the tree we use for presents.
On the back of each stocking:
Lots of cross-stitched ornaments and home made bows.
I tied some extra strands of red wood beads on the chairs.
On our sideboard/buffet some red wood beads and candycanes.
