BooMama is hosting her annual Tour of Homes today, and you better believe I’m playing along this year! I had SO much fun last year “visiting” people’s homes. I met some of my favorite bloggers through that tour! So stop on by her place:
Now, here we go. Welcome to my home! First stop, since Christ is the Center of our home, is a nativity. We have several nativities, but this is the one set up in the main part of our home this year. It was made by the pastor of the church I attended when I was young.
Here’s that candelabra from the other side. Husband is 1/4 Jewish.
I have a balustrade hung on the wall that usually gets decorated seasonally.
I found this “Hope” sign in the $2.50 bin (yeah, isn’t that a nice upgrade from the $1 bin?) at Target. I really like it, though Husband thought it was some sort of political statement (nope, Hope in Jesus, that’s it!).
My theme this year was blue and silver, but I tucked little accents of red in here and there. Here’s some holly next to a photo of my favorite (only) daughter.
And we do have a tree. I purchased all new shatterproof ornaments on clearance after Christmas last year, since Anja is a bit of a curious one. “Ball, ball, Mama!” she yells, and she’ll come running to me with one she has pulled off the tree.
A close-up of some of the ornaments:
I don’t feel like they look too plastic-y.
I love when it’s all lit up at night. So festive!
Sometimes I like to squint at the tree and it looks extra magical. 🙂
Then, still squinting, I turn and look at the icicle lights my husband has hung on the deck.
I’m a dork; I know.
I forgot to photograph the cookies I made, so I’ll pacify you with a sunset!
