Christmas Tour, Part I

Today, I'm taking you on a partial tour of the house all decorated for Christmas.

On the front door, I have a spray rather than a wreath.

Just inside, in the foyer, is this piece that was given to the men at church for Father's Day.  I kept the 3 crosses on the inside, and draped, garland, poinsetias, and lights on the hooks on the front.

Next to the foyer is the dining room, where the tree is located.

The tree is new, and was the display tree at Lowe's, so I bought it already put together, fluffed,etc.  I came home and all I had to do was decorate it.

Touches of red brighten the china cabinet.  I inserted red ornaments and berries into various dishes. 

 Accross from the front door is the hall tree.  I have an angel tree topper on it this year and love the way it looks there.

Next up is the mantel and other areas in the living room.

I've changed the mantel some since I took this photo.  Just a little change or two.

The hearth has already been changed, too.  The arrangement is now on the dining room table as the center piece.

The coffee table and old square table beside the chair, both hold tray vignettes of Christmas items with fairy lights.

This tray holds an old black truck with a tree in the back.

Two pieces of milk glass flank the vignette here.

This arrangement is a hodge podge of items, but I like it.

This is the focal point in the room.

My brother brought me his entire collection of old vehicles, and I love them as Christmas decor!

Again, I've moved these aqua items to the library for a touch of Christmas in there.

Some of these areas have been tweaked a little and places changed.  Of course I'm known to do that up til Christmas Day, then the day after, I'll yank it all down and store it away!! 

Come back in a couple of days for Part II.
