Christmas Tour of Homes

Ever just want to peek inside people's houses to see how they decorate for Christmas? Well, your wish is granted! Just click on the button above and start your tour! I just had to join in the fun too, so here's a look at our decor.Welcome to our home for the holidays! Come on in!A beautiful lantern my mother-in-law just gave me as an early Christmas present.
Bet you thought there was a fireplace behind this mantel...Gotcha! Pretty good trick eh!
Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree!I made these stockings this year as my very first sewing endeavor. I'm just loving how they look on my mantel! Now I just need to sew our names on them.Cutting out snowflakes for the windows has been a tradition since childhood. I wouldn't consider myself an expert snowflake cutter, but it sure is fun to make them.My favorite item here is the sled. I found it at an antique store.Just some Christmasy potpourri Some figurines and a church I inherited from my GrandmaMy precious Nativity. Hoping to upgrade some day.More village scenes from GrannyHope you've enjoyed the tour! Merry Christmas!

Luke 2:8-12

That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

I haven't cut out snowflakes since I was a kid! That is motivating me, especially since the boys are now old enough to be trusted with scissors. What a great idea!

Amy said...

I love it all...especially the window panes! Loved your card too!

Amy said...

Sarah, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Your house is so warm and inviting; of course, I would expect that Christmas would be even more so. Beautiful home!

Looking forward to our coffee date!

Love the villages!!! I collect villages too...mainly the ones the Dollar Tree had a few years ago. They may be cheap but they do the job well :-)
Maybe next year if I save enough I might start buying the villages from Hallmark :-)

Your tree is gorgeous by the way!

Thank you for allowing me a peak inside your home!

Merry Christmas from Dawn in Germany!
