House Tour

Here are some wonderful examples of Christmas decorating that I saw yesterday on a house tour in our local community.  There were 6 stops and each was so unique and very beautiful.  It was an awesome way to spend the first Saturday in December - and to be completely inspired!  My home will continue to be decorated with the items I love best but it was a great treat to see these homes, which were all worthy of magazine publication!

#1 - Ponderosa Poinsettia House

#2 - Icy Beauty of Winter

#3 - United Church - which had a lovely collection of creches (Nativity scenes).  There were wooden ones, a knitted one, a stained glass set, several ceramic ones, a carved wooden one from Germany and a lovely quilted wall hanging.  (I didn't get any pictures here.)

#4 - Bringing the Outdoors In (I think this was my favourite)

#5 - Victorian Christmas

(of course the orange in the duvet and pillows grabbed me!)


white and pink little girls room

The last home had themed decor and I have so many pictures that I'm going to save it for tomorrow.  I hope you've been a little inspired.  I'm so grateful that the homeowners welcomed us into their beautiful spaces!
