Holiday Home Tour

Welcome and come in, come in! It's chilly out there, isn't it.

Ignore the dog, she's just trying to sneak out for a romp, even though she knows better.
Well, you're in luck. I just put the kettle on... would you like a hot cup of tea?

Did you have a nice weekend? I spent the whole weekend feathering my nest for Christmas. Feel free to look around!

This is our sitting room, and where we put our tree every year.


Our dining room.

You can never have too many candles lit while dining, if you ask me.


And here is our family room.

Come stand by the fire place and get good and toasty before you have to go.

Well that's it! Thank you for stopping by to visit.

I wish you a happy and cozy Holiday Season!

I just found out that the shell ornaments that I made last year are being featured here. She has all kinds of cute, beachy ornie ideas.
Have a beautiful Monday!
