Christmas Home Tour 2012

Last year I shared my home via Christmas tour.

I thought it would be fun to look back.

I am finishing up some photos and hoping to share my home via tour next week with you all.

Here was my home December 2012.

Welcome to my home so glad you could stop by.Before we start the tour would you like some hot chocolate?

That little vintage honey jar is filled with homemade hot chocolate mix.
It will only take a minute to warm it up.Would you like some marshmallows or candy canes in your hot chocolate?

Since we are already in the kitchen why not start the tour here.

In keeping things simple I used lots of fresh tree greens.
In my cups and small pitchers on my French bottle rack I added some fresh roses and greens too.Love that pop of red and white looks so festive.A bowl of fruit add a bit of color too.

As you can see I hung some aprons on the wall from a hook.Love the pop of color.These are a gift from my sweet niece.She made these!One for me and one for my daughter.


Our Christmas tree in a trunk.This takes up so little room and really brightens our kitchen at night.

Let’s step into the family room.

As you can see we are keeping things simple just pine cones scattered on the mantle.With silver and some fresh greens.

My little tree in my sap bucket.And an old wood tote with lavender pillows,pine cones and an old milk bottle with some petite flowers.

Lets take a peek at the dining room.

I am not hosting Christmas dinner this year.But I thought I would share with you my table setting if I were to host.
My favorite china to use is my French limoges.

I placed it on a white ironstone dish.Lace napkins placed with a silver Angel napkin ring.I added a bit of those petite flowers for a bit of color too.

Bits of color here and there with a bit of sparkle from these silver ornaments.

Another view of my dining room.

Oh no you have to leave already? Time goes by way to fast! Thank you so much for stopping by.Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year!

      Thank you Doris! I bought the stools at Menards many years ago.But I painted them with milk paint to give them an aged look and recovered the seats with painters tarp.

    Just lovely, Anne. Did you use a linen White on the walls? I want to repainting a white, and want a little warmth to I always go crazy picking the right white. You seem to have gotten it perfect!
