Christmas Eve Mini House Tour


Well honestly, no one was knocking on my blog's door to ask me to share my Holiday House Tour. After I got over my initial disappointment (I hope you know I am kidding), I decided to create my very own Chatelaine style house tour.

The bear is new. He came with a throw I purchased recently. I put the throw on the sofa and Oscar immediately made it his new home. Later I sat down on the throw to relax and my jeans got wet. Oscar had thrown up on it. And I wonder why I didn't get asked for a house tour?

The vintage ornaments came with the antique box the Teddy is sitting in. It came from an antique store Christmas open house, one of the few I attended this season.

 The kitties all have stockings with their names on them because of course my cats are so smart they can read. The prelit garland, after I had artfully arranged it, decided to only light on the left hand side. So I had to improvise with the little wire fairy lights for some illumination.


I love these little woodland angels. They are holding animals so that makes me love them all the more.

The decoration came with a cake stand and cloche and the trees are illuminated.


Who needs decorations on the tree when I have a beautiful poser sitting in front of the tree?


And you can see why I do not have decorations on the tree. Someone likes to knock them off.


I like to illuminate the living room with candles in lanterns and of course the fireplace.
 

This is my lamp that reminds me of a church lamp and the wrought iron item in the background is actually a piece of a gate that surrounded a church in Lynn once upon a time. I love it!


And yes my mini house tour does include a small vignette in the bathroom. A spruce scented candle, a little bling from Michael's, and a print from the artist Lisa O'Connell. A depiction of a dune shack in Provincetown.


The boys need to learn that they can not fit under such a small tree. They like to look out the front window and they will not give up tree or no tree.


Here is my tree topper. It does not have lights but it shines in my eyes. Handmade is best, don't you think?

So much for the mini house tour. I did not do too much this year. The season got away from me and I ran out of time. Maybe next year, I can start earlier and join in on a blogger's house tour.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!!!
