Christmas 2010 Tour

IMG_6291 Welcome to my 2010 Christmas Tour!!  I thought that if I was going to get these pictures up, I had better get at it and get them up before Christmas!  I know there were lots of linky parties the past couple of weeks, but I have missed out on them!!  I didn’t do much this year, but our house is just festive enough for my likes this year! 

I started by changing out my curtains.  I just put some festive green ones up - - they were the curtains from our dining room in California.  I love switching out my curtains.  It is just a few re-clips away from a new look!!

Next came the mantle - - since I have a great new sturdy mantle this year (remember last year my mantle fell off the wall - - and this summer I found a fantastic replacement) I stuffed as much mercury glass, lights, greenery, and greenery as I possibly could!!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care….

A few Christmas pillows on the couch, greenery over the mirror, lights and greenery wrapped around the pillars and….back by request of my kiddos:  the magical hanging indoor forest in the hallway!

Simple, elegant, and easily packed up in January!  I miss not doing the post tour of homes, but it sure was nice decorating in just one day and knowing that in a few simple hours it will all be taken down again!  

Have a fabulous Christmas enjoying time with your friends and family!!!

Your home was gorgeous! I love the branch from the ceiling. I have seen them done on porches but never inside and I love yours!
