Christmas Tour of Homes, 2010

Welcome to everyone stopping by from The Nester or Kelly's Korner! I hope you enjoy my Christmas home tour, as I'm sure I'll enjoy all of yours!

This year we did two trees. One formal, pretty tree in our dining room:
I decorated the whole thing in red and gold, and I love how it turned out!

Our other tree is in our living room. It's our real tree, and our "fun" tree, filled with bright lights and sentimental and funny ornaments.

I made the tree skirt last year.

And here are our stockings, hung on the railing since we don't have a fireplace! They are both the stockings we had when we were growing up.

My favorite Christmas decorations are my nativity sets. I have two. One upstairs:

And one downstairs in the dining room.

And here are some Christmasy details found around my home:
Check out the snowmen in the picture below...this is our Ohio State nook in the living room
OH! - IO!
I'm not a huge "Santa Claus" person, but I love this one.

And this year we are lucky to have the prettiest Christmas decoration outside right now:

It's the perfect evening to curl up under a heavy blanket, watch a Christmas movie, enjoy some hot cocoa:

And maybe a Christmas cookie or two!

I think I'll do just that tonight :-)

Have a Merry, blessed Christmas, and thanks for stopping by!
