Christmas Home Tour

First I would like to thank everyone who has become a follower of my blog.  I hit 100 followers yesterday.  I really appreciate all of the support.  It's been amazing getting to know so many new people.  I look forward to even more of you following me.

I've been showing you bits and pieces of our home decorated for Christmas.  Here is my official Christmas home tour.

Our tree is in our Great Room for all to see.  You can see it from the time you enter our front door.  Over 1000 white lights cover the tree.

Ornaments collected through the years adorn the tree.  Each one has it's own special meaning.

The angel watches over and protects.  The paper mache mouse is over thirty years old.  You can see more of my tree here.

Bows I have made from wired ribbon and floral wire are spread throughout my home.  You can learn how to make these bows here.

My favorite little Santa Claus.  My son reminded me that we bought this Santa last year on Christmas Eve at the Christmas Tree shop.  We were out buying last minute plates and napkins and saw him.  He was on clearance as it was Christmas Eve.  I love his colors.

My mantle is decorated with garland, flowers and more bows.  It is also strung with white lights.  The sugared topiaries on either end of the mantle are the perfect finishing touch.  You can see more of my mantle here.

  My kids created these little houses out of kits from Michaels.  The little people nativity set was brought by Santa years ago when my kids were very little.  They still love the idea of having their own nativity set.  It's nice to have one for your kids that they can play with.

This is my nativity set...the ones the kids can't play with.  My husband gave this to me when we were first married.

Of course let's not forget the train that runs around the tree.
Our staircase greets guests with Christmas spirit as soon as they enter.  See how you can see our tree in the Great Room from the front entry.

We have been collecting these snowmen from Hallmark for the past five or so years.  So fun.  Each one plays it's own song.

With only eleven days until Christmas, are you ready?  I'm getting closer...but I'm not there yet.  Let me know what you think.  I always love and appreciate your comments.  Thanks.
