My Home Dressed of the Holidays.


This is part of a Decorating for the holiday Blog hop hosted by The Frugal Housewife. Today you can travel from blog to blog to check out their decorating and get some ideas. Getting our home ready for the holiday season is sometimes hard. However, it is a joy when it's done. This is how the Blog hop works. At the End of my post will be a link to the Next one to visit. Each blog you visit will have a different one to visit. There are 23 different blog participating. come along with us and have a wonderful Holiday Viewing Day.

I got into the home decorating while in Germany. A friend of mine did her home up and I really liked it. She would wrap her pictures in Christmas paper and put big bows on them, scatter a few Christmas books around and her tree would be decked out. It has now been over 25 years. I have collected a lot of things since then, winter pictures, houses, and other items. Each of my rooms has a theme, which makes it very easy to decorate. Also it makes it nice to shop because I know which room the item goes in.
Here are a little peek at some rooms.

Dinning room is Reindeer.

My Kitchen is snowmen.

This year My new item is a Refrigerator Snowman. It's A hoot, when You open the frig door he talks and sings!


Santa is in the Solarium .

On the Coffee table I have books all about The Santa Man.

In the Laundry room is my Village.
I love the villages and I tend to scatter them all around the home. They stay up all winter. This is so I can see the snow.... even if we don't get enough. I Love To be snowed IN!!!

The Living room is.....
Victorian Christmas and Poinsettias.

In this room I put out my Southern Living Christmas book Collection. As well as the angels and Angel tree.
Our Family room is...
An All American Christmas.

Each year we collect ornaments from all our travels. This year we had a lot because of our "GoWestMyFriend Trip". Saturday we decorated the tree and watch the The Santa Claus movie with Tim Allen. I just love that movie. We have a fireplace in the Family room so of course the Mantel get done. I also have a ski village in the room. I'll post More village pictures later.
I wanted to show you the whole house but there is so much and not enough space on this blog. You would probably have to spend all day with me, that would be fine.... but I want you to see twenty three other blogger friends Holiday decoration. So you can leave you comment and then hop over to Laane on theWorld to see what she has done.

  1. Wow that is gorgeous!! I am not a very good decorator. I was proud of myself for putting up the tree and getting the nativity scene up on top of the piano :)

    I love your village - those are beautiful.
    I hope you have a Merry Christmas soon!

  4. Wow, I'm so impressed. I love the idea of covering your pictures with wrapping paper. I will have to try that for a frugal yet fun way to decorate. I love that you have themes in all of your rooms. I'm sure your house would be fun to visit during the holidays.

  17. I thought the blog decorating thing looked and sounded like fun; but I've not even begun to decorate. I tend to not like things up very long; though we did just buy our tree this evening and it's now in the garage. We'll put it up this wkend. I'm thinking about bringing up a few boxes and maybe if I get off work early enough tomorrow (which I was suppose to and didn't again today), I'll start decorating a bit tomorrow.
