We built our home in 2013 and had our first Christmas there in 2013. This year we were asked to be on the New Town Christmas Home Tour. What a delight! The proceeds from this event go to support our local food banks. I was happy to be a part of such an event.
|My grandfather built this barrister cabinet. It holds our David Winter cottage collection.|
The dining room table is decorated with a plaid wool reindeer and a plaid bowl filled with apples and pomegranates. The place setting is a rattan charger, white plate, Christmas mug and a red napkin, all ready for Christmas brunch. The chandelier has a wreath of greens, burlap bow and ornaments hanging from it. The Be Merry banner has plaid paper backing!
We have three bedrooms in this house, one which is used for my office. Our daughter has claimed the guest room as her very own. The tree in her room reflects our love of the beach. The tree in our bedroom is full of ornaments collected on our travels. The tree in the office is filled with handmade ornaments given to me by friends from all over the world. We do an ornament exchange each year!
|The quilt was made by friends and me. Each contributed a square and we had them put together for a quilt!|
The last room in our house is our loft. It is upstairs with two bedrooms. This is where we will eventually watch sports. It is decorated with memorabilia from different sporting events we've been to or support. Go Tigers! Go Cardinals!
|Wedding photo of our daughter. The words above are a decal from the Dollar Store!|
|My piano stool plus a stocking from a very special friend!|
|The peacock was stitched by my mother-in-law and the ceramic tree painted by my mom.|
|The nativity set was painted by my mother-in-law and the shed made by my father-in-law|
|The pink stockings were a gift from a friend in Australia. The box holds a collection of Christmas mice.|
|The chair was my great grandmothers, the desk belong to an aunt of my husband's||and the pillow was made by a dear friend.|
|I made this wreath using items from the various schools I have been associated with over the years.|
