Holiday Home Tour - Part 2

The only other part of the house I decorate is my bedroom.

You may notice some changes from the last time I showed this room. The room is still pink, but I got rid of all the black and white and I also got some cool vintage furniture from my parents for my birthday back in August.

I painted some of my other pieces off white to go with the new look.

Vintage Snow Village

These old ornaments belonged to my Great Grandmother, Mama Pat.

I got this cute Santa for $4.00 last year after Christmas. The Angel is one of my Red headed angels that my Aunt Beth has given me. I think I've posted about those before.

Christmas Card!

This is my online Christmas Card. I made a couple of choices and decided on another design, but decided to use this one online for fun.
Merry Christmas to all!

Betsy's Holiday Home Tour 2009!

Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things. I have a ridiculous amount of Christmas decorations for such a small place, but I can't help it. Many of the decorations are sentimental family pieces which is why I love them so much.

Here is part one of my Holiday Home tour. Enjoy!

Welcome. This is my fresh Balsam Wreath. I don't have a real tree so I order a fresh wreath every year to enjoy the scent.

Come on in.

My little Christmas Tree. Stuffed with ornaments I've collected.

My new display shelf!

Even the Ficus Tree dresses up for the holiday.

My music boxes.

The dining room.

The Reason for the Season -The Nativity

The Buffet

Vintage Table Cloth

I'll post again later with part 2 of my Holiday Home Tour. I may also feature some of my favorite decorative pieces and ornaments.
Merry Christmas.

It's snowing in Dallas this morning! Ok, it doesn't really look like the picture above, but a girl can dream. If you look up at the sky you can see the snow falling, but if you look at the ground it just looks like it's raining.

Even though the snow isn't sticking its still really cold outside. My car thermometer read 33 on the way to work. Burrrrr Rabbit!

I was reminded how blessed I am as I passed the bus stop this morning. There I sat in my warm car, with heated seats no less, as I watched a group of people shiver in the cold rain while waiting on the bus. Thank you God for providing me with transportation and a warm dry home.

Count your blessings today.
