Christmas Open House


Welcome to our home for Christmas.  Wow, I want to thank all of you for linking to Table Top Tuesday, we had such a fabulous turnout.  If you missed any of the participants, you've really missed a lot.  Thank you all so much.

Come on in, we have plenty of Christmas goodies, some Sparkling Cider and we would love to sit and visit.


The tree is already for Santa to make an appearance.  The stockings are under the tree and waiting to be filled.

The coffee table is decorated to remind us of the reason for the season.

You can catch a peek at the china cabinet in the mirror.

The silver is all polished and the crystal all washed, ready to celebrate the season.

We don't have a fireplace, so the China cabinet gets the Santa, garland and a couple of hurricanes.

The dining area and buffet are all decked out for the season too.

The Buffet holds my little village.  I also hung a wreath in the window.  You'll have to wait to see the Dining table, I'm sharing that at the "Christmas Cloche Party" on Friday.  Mr. Linky will be up Thursday evening.  Don't forget to join us for all the fun.

As I unpacked the rest of the Christmas decor, I found another house and the lighted Christmas tree.  Such fun to set it up and dream of a simplier time.

A very simple wreath hangs in the dining area window.

The kitchen you've already seen, it got a little Christmas cheer too.

A sleigh and Lady Santa with a yummy vanilla candle.

The Ragmop Santa sits beside a cloche full of toys.

Plenty to eat and drink, especially the cloche full of faux sweets.

Thank you for the visit, I love it when you stop by.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and all your family.  God Bless and keep you!

I am joining :

  8. Marty it all looks so wonderful and festive!! You certainly know how to doll up that fantastic home of yours for Christmas!

    I still don't have my front and back door areas done- and I didn't do a tree in every room this year either. Just 1 tree in the whole house but it will just have to do.

    Looks like Christmas may be in NM as we have to rip out carpet and do some fixing up to get the house ready for market again.

    bee blessed

  56. Hi Marty~ Your tree is just beautiful! I love all the festive touches you added to your room as well- the wreath above your little village is darling. I am going to see about getting a cloche post together in time to join your party- Stopping by today from Linda's party.

  58. Marty - I love every single solitary inch.
    I especially love the toys in the cloche in the kitchen and REALLY love the little red angel on the plate next to the sleigh. My Mom used to have something similar . . . no idea what happened to them.
    I didn't set my village up this year - no time - so I am going to enjoy yours!
    Have a wonderful day!
    Merry Christmas! Karen
