Home for The Holidays Tour

Please join me in Southern Hospitality's Home for the Holiday Home Tours. I'll be sharing my country primitive side of Christmas for the tour................



HO! HO! HO! Welcome Everyone!



I thought we'd start in the laundry room, since this is where we enter the house--through the back door. A small tree decked out in homespun bows on old clothespins and rusty jingle bells....


....a little old fashioned looking doll.....


...a prim santa on a candlestick.....


....a bit of Christmas cheer for the dryer. I borrowed the candy cane in the mason jar lamp idea from Aunt Amelia's Attic....and the snowman cookie jar I searched and searched for and feared had gotten lost---he was hiding in the box marked--Snowmen. Imagine that! LOL!


....My Prim tree filled with handmade ornies that I've swapped with friends over the years. This is by and far my very favorite tree! I usually put up 3 full sized trees, but this year I only put up 2, because this house just isn't configured to my way of decorating....



.....a few close ups to follow of some of the wonderful ornies made by friends on the prim tree......

























....my new little vintage Dancing Santas on the fireplace....and no it's not dusty, it's just the way it looks no matter what I do to it......


...The big ol' nutcracker in front of the "regular tree"......(the family is not fond of my prim tree--I just don't get it!)...


....little miss annie and Ted E Bear (handmade by my dear friend Donna Balfanz)...enjoying the season all snuggled in their little red sled enjoying the glow of the candlelight.

Don't forget to see all of the other wonderful homes over at Southern Hospitality

Oh and don't forget there's still time to enter my Giveaway!

Ohhhhhhh what a glorious job of decorating for Christmas!

And you have a bigger mason jar lamp so your candy canes really show up, in it. Mine is so short that I had to break them off. :-)

Sweet, sweet old fashioned Christmas decorations!!!
