Twilight Christmas Home Tour

Welcome to our home!  I sure wish we could have a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and chat!  Visiting with friends is one of my favorite things to do ~ especially during this most wonderful time of the year!

 In keeping with the "tiny house movement", welcome to our cozy little foyer! The Santa music box plays such sweet Christmas tunes. 

Of course, the tree is the main attraction during the Christmas season.  We went completely "old-school" this year.  We had our very first live tree in thirteen years, which we decorated with the large, colored lights - C9 to be exact.  I love that they are so "retro"! 

The large lights are so festive!  The gingerbread ornament is
 the newest addition to my Radko collection.  

Little touches of Christmas are throughout the house!  I love pulling out special Christmas pieces such as the Etta B Santa plate.  Of course, the Nativity scene is one our most treasured Christmas items!  

This vintage ceramic tree is from my childhood!  Does that mean I am vintage, too?  

 These pillows from Target added a cheerful pop of color to our sofa!  The beautiful Christmas quilt is so special to me.  It was made by my mother; however, she didn't quite finish it before she passed away.  My precious neighbor, Ms. Martha, completed the quilt by adding the beautiful binding to it this year.  I love it so much!! 

This simple, burlap table runner was made extra festive by a cheerful green monogram! 

A quilted runner from my grandmother is perfect on the dishwasher.  The Christmas "Joy" picture from Ashley Anthony is another new piece this year.  

 Simple and festive!

This little tree is a bit "Charlie Brownish", but it makes me smile.  I love the tiny copper colanders and tea pots.  

 The Hot Cocoa Bar has been a huge hit!!!
The McCarty bunnies throughout the house got "gussied up" for Christmas with bows! 

Lots of silver and blue add a bit of sparkle in the guest bedroom. 

I purchased this quilted stocking my first year of teaching 
to hang in my very first apartment.  

Seth has his own special tree as well!  A Santa Nutcracker 
counts down the days until Christmas!! It is almost time! 

Thank you so much for visiting our Christmas home!! 
 I wish you Christmas blessings from Buttercup Bliss!
