My Holiday Home Pics!

Finally have all my decorating done. So here are a few pics I have taken. I wish my home were more prim then what it is. Some day we may get around to pulling up the carpet and redo the hardwood floors. And get some new furniture, now that the kids are grown and gone.







These pictures are of the front door area. On the back of our front door I have a quilted wall hanging that my mom made about 10 years ago. The tree is made up of individual pieces of fabric that are folded into a triangle. And each little present under the tree is made separately. It's truly a work of art. It's one of my favorite pieces from my mom.




And here are pics of my hallway and up the stairs. I just love the mirror, which we got about 20 years ago at an auction. It's beveled with a wide oak trim.

.

Here are a couple of vintage stockings! LOL Mine and my hubbies from when we were kids. My mom made mine and hubbies grandma made his. My stocking is a little ragged. A couple of years ago Bonsai, my kitty, decided to attack it. He has a thing for anything made of felt. Don't know why. He has even gotten ornaments off the tree made of felt and chews them up.

Hi Tammy!....your Christmas decorations are all quite wonderful! Everything looks cozy and festive. I love love that cardinal make-do that I spotted in your cubby shelf and your big tree is beautiful!

I too wish my home was more primitive colonial, at least you don't have mauve carpet like we do, ha!

Merry Christmas!

Everything looks just beautiful. I love all your prim touches. I'm just getting started with prim so I understand that feeling of wishing it was more prim. I've toyed with prim in the past but this time it stuck and I'm obsessed. lol
