Christmas Tour of Homes 2007

Boomama is hosting the Christmas Tour of Homes.
I'm a little late! Real life took precedent yesterday.

I hope you haven't toured so much
that you can't make it through one more Christmas laden home! :-)

Merry Christmas!
I'm so glad you came today!
Come right in!


The first stop on my Christmas tour is my living room and dining room.

Here is the Nativity Tree that I shared with you in this post.


Near the tree is this curio cabinet that usually houses my husband's lighthouse collection. During this season it is home to most of our nativity collection.
(Someday I'm going to take a class to learn how to keep the glare/reflection
out of pictures when there are mirrors/glass in the shot)! :-)
You can click on the picture to get a better view)



The latest addition to the nativity collection is on the dining room table.
It was a gift from a son and dil last year.



Santa and friends hang out in the kitchen and family room.

The family tree is full of the ornament we have collected
Do you see that lovely little table runner on the table
with family pictures and mementos?
Remember when I won that
here! Yay!
Thank you, Becky!
The manger scene under the table is the one I shared here.


The grands have stockings hung by the chimney.


Another nativity set--Ella has been at work on it.
Don''t you love how young children like
to gather all the figures around the Baby Jesus?
It's like they want to protect Him--the one who came to protect us!


The New England village is above the windows.
I showed you the latest addition to here.

This part of the village has the doctor and lawyer offices,
the printing office, church, post office, and the school.
Here are the lighthouse, the glass works, general store, and a flag shop.


The last part of the village--the farm with the deer moving in the woods nearby. One more Santa greets us at the kitchen table.

One last stop today.
This cute little tree was a recent gift to Lee from a new friend.
The little snow family came to live with us today--
a gift from friends we have known for several years.
Both gifts are cheerful additions to our Christmas decorations this year.
They are displayed in our bedroom.

Thank you so much for coming to visit me today.
I enjoy having visitors and I LOVE Christmas!
You can find more homes to tour at Boomama's.

I hope you are having a joyous time preparing for Christmas!

I'm so glad you made the tour! Your home is just lovely. I especially love the village above the windows - that is a great idea!
And Becky's table runner is so pretty!
I have gotten so many wonderful ideas from this tour - I'm trying to tuck them away for next year!

Thanks for sharing all your beautiful decorations and collections. Don't you love unpacking them and remembering the story that is behind each and every one?
Hope everything is better today?

Everything is beautiful, Myrna. Sorry you had a bad day on Monday.

I've had that tummy bug so I've been out of the blogging loop since Sunday. Now I'm trying to catch up as I can. ;o)

Have a joyous and blessed Christmas season, dear Myrna.

Love and hugs,

Diane

Beautiful and stunning, Myrna. I love the nativity tree. I don't believe I have ever seen one before:o)

Thanks for your comment. We certainly need strength and God's wisdom, not man's wisdom!!! I treasure your prayers.

I love those little camels inside the curio. How small and delicate they look! I also admire the village on top of the huge windows. You are very creative in positioning your decorations. Good Job, Myrna! Also, love the nativity tree with the huge Mary and Joseph. I love it all! No one would have to guess what Christmas is about after visiting your house! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

I'm glad you joined in, even if a bit late. I recycled mine from last year, because we got home on Sunday and I didn't have time or energy!

It has been a difficult week - seems as though coming down from a mountain is traumatic.

Love all the nativities - I am acquiring quite a collection, too. Three of them are grandchild-designed! I loved listening to Feisty play with Jesus today.

I LOVE your decorations. My favorites are the ones on the shelves above the curtains. It is so neat to see everybody's houses and their individual ways of decorating. Merry Chrismtas to you and yours!
