Christmas Tour of Homes

Our nine foot, live tree graces the foyer and it is the first thing you would see after walking in the front door. We used to put it in the living room which has a bay window, but now with 7-8 adults opening presents on Christmas morning, there was not enough room both.

Turn around and you will see our stockings. During this past year's home remodeling, we had the chimney torn down :( We intend the replace it in Phase II of the remodeling.

Next I would invite you into the living room and offer you a seat beside this large poinsettia. Would you like a cup of tea or coffee?

In which case, I would invite you into the kitchen and we'd visit around this centerpiece.

May your Christmas be merry and your New Year be bright.

Edit: Lest you think, my decorating is so perfect, consider checking out the picture of my front door/yard posted on my xanga site.


  1. Your tree is perfection!
    Your front yard is a nightmare!
    You seem to have kept your gentle spirit intact, dear Dana.

    Thinking of you and your girls and wishing I could bring you dinner!


  2. You are the Alexandra Stoddard of the blog world, Dana, even with the front yard. Our "yard" is soon going to look the same as a bulldozer sits out front, waiting to level what is now a gently sloping hill. We will see how long it takes to get some kind of landscaping in. The deer will love it.

    Looking forward to LOTS of wedding pics. Make sure the camera is in tip-top shape.

  3. wow. good tour mom. cute house. :)- PD

  4. What a tree! I love that it greets you when you walk in the front door. A soothing sight after seeing your poor front yard torn up.
