Christmas Tour Of Homes

Christmas Tour of Homes



This my little humble Christmas Tour. I don't really go extravagant just the basic tree and stockings. I like it that way as I don't like to drift to far off the reason for the season. There's not a lot to see but Welcome nonetheless!

This is obviously the fireplace with the stockings hung with care. It would pretty much be the first thing you would probably see besides sashaing around the tree. I put the angel here on the mantle as she is a bit top heavy on the tree and doesn't stay on very well.

O Christmas Tree...how lovely are your branches. It's nothing fancy at all. I'm a very simple person. Yet it does look a bit bare.

...he sees you when your sleeping, he knows when you're awake.

Our humble little Jesse tree. I put all the decorations on it for this shot. Other wise ther'd only be a few.

"Away in a manger..." This miniature nativity set was given to me by the sweetest little old Lady that worked with me right around the time I was dating C. I think of her often when I get it out each Christmas. I hope she's still around, and doing well.
Here are the gingerbread men I made for Christmas gift toppers. I think they turned out pretty cute. The one on the left I made to look like someone had taken a bite out of it. Meh. I figured a headless one would be a bit too morbid.
That's pretty much it. I havn't put lights out on the front of the house and probably won't. Our neighborhood isn't that big on the lights and we just need to conserve the electric bill. Hope you enjoyed. Sorry it wasn't much.

Everything looks lovely! I forgot to participate in this tour!

My favorite is that santa that is hiding in your tree! LOL! He really does look like he's watching someone!
