Show us your Christmas home!

Isn’t it wonderful to be invited into people’s homes and be witness to their wonderful spirit of Christmas?

Xmas 10 welcome

Also wonderful is that we don’t have to take an aeroplane or a long car journey to do so because we share this wonderful blogosphere!

The lovely Kerryanne, over at Shabby Art Boutique, is hosting Show us your Christmas home’, and after visiting a couple I am enthused to share mine with you, too!

First up is DD’s little white tree, decorated all by her little self…

Xmas Rosie tree collageYou may spot (excuse the pun!!) a couple of kitties on her tree – a Fimo one from last year – and this year a glass kitty containing a glass fish in a snow dome. Am I stupid brave or what? Glass? Yes I did have my tummy in my throat when she placed that one on the tree!

Xmas 10 on top of tv display

My collection of Jim Shore ornaments placed above the entertainment unit, and a gorgeous snow-globe train gifted to my family by this lovely lady, a few years ago. (Hmm.. just realised I need to make a festive wall-hanging for the back wall!)

Xmas 10 Santa hanging doll

My favourite Santa – hung on the wall leading to the stairs…

Xmas 10 hallway mirror

How did it manage to SNOW in our hallway?! Oh that’s right – I think it came from here!

Xmas 10 main tree

We have two ‘big’ trees up this year. I’ll share the other one at a later date when I’ve completed it’s prettying!!

So that’s my seasonal decorating – to date! How about you? Have you finished ‘decking the halls’ yet? Why not head over to Shabby Art Boutique and play along - or visit lots of beautiful homes?!!


On the subject of sharing…

Plum Pudding Christmas Fairy by Monica 1

Monica over at Il Contafili stitched this gorgeous festive linen cloth using the Plum Pudding Christmas Fairy design I offered on Among the Gum Trees last year. Isn’t it sweet? Monica’s blog is gorgeous – I love the way she skilfully stages her photographs, and her projects are exquisite!

Thank you Monica, for sharing with us! :-)

If you would like to stitch this project I have added it to my sidebar for easy downloading. I hope you enjoy it!

Until next time! Hugs! Vikki xo :-)

Dolores said...

Wonderful. I have yet to decorate - this weekend I hope. That's a great idea - to let Rosie have her very own tree. I have one too in the kitchen.

Hi Vikki,

Your home looks lovely and Christmassy. I love that Rosie has her own special tree :)
Must do something about ours...have no idea where the tree is going to fit though.
Hugs, Sharon

Your home looks gorgeous Vikki. Love your santa with the chenille. Very sweet :)

Allie said...

You are a very brave woman, Vikki, lol - I made felt ornaments for years for my boys to hang! Of course, they're BOYS. Your home looks absolutely delicious, very festive and cozy - love your decorations! I've yet to put any up. I'm in denial. I want summer back.

Joy McD said...

You home looks so lovley and Christmassy! Mine is looking rather bare in comparison! Hopefully next year we won't be moving countries and I'll get them all up! For now, I'll enjoy looking at other people's houses :)
