~Holiday Home Tour 2012 & A Linky Party~

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season so far and with only 4 more days until Christmas it has flown by as usual.  I love decorating for this time of year and would like to give you a tour of our home.  I'm also adding a Linky Party so any of you who would like to share your home all decked may do so as well.  Please feel free to link up any previous Christmas related posts from this year as I'm a little late getting mine up:-)

I've already shown a few smaller vignettes in my house, so in these photos I've tried to show larger areas of each room....there are quite a few photos, so you might want to grab a cup of coffee before you sit down.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.  

I mentioned in a previous post that we usually get our trees from our own property and this year we had a harder time finding one to fit the space.  It needed to be really skinny and that's what we got!  A tall and skinny charlie brown tree....not perfect, but we like it:-)  

                                                                                                                                                                       
I made all the burlap stockings last year and you can see a couple more little charlie brown trees planted in my urns.

I recently found this wonderful old sled and it fit nicely next to the tree.

My kitchen area is simple with just some added greens, a rosemary tree and a wreath hanging from the chalkboard.

As you head into the dining room from the kitchen you will see my mannequin decked out in her angel wings and I also placed another tree in an old wooden basket with a handle and wheels.

And last, but not least, my bedroom with all of it's festive touches. 

I hope you enjoyed the tour and I will be linking up with Donna at Funky Junk and Common Ground

  16. Your home is lovely, Kathleen. I'm crazy over your Charlie Brown tree...it's exactly what I want. I think next year I'll buy a Frazier Fir as usual, and just cut out some branches. Hopefully, I'll get my act together t'morrow and take a few pics of my home.

    Blessings for a very Merry Christmas with much joy and happiness,
