A Few More Holiday Home Photos

Here are a few more photos of the holiday décor as my entry for Boo Mama’s Christmas Tour of Homes.

On the living room desk is the Advent Calendar, which I use every day.

The compote was a gift from my sister-in-law:

The vintage angels under the cloche are on the chest in the dining room. I have had them since about 1973. They originally belonged to the aunt of a colleague whose husband did not believe in decorating for Christmas. So the wife gave me her decorations, which included these angels and also the NOEL figures shown later below.

This garland is over the door from the dining room to the kitchen:

Here are a few more views of the kitchen:

This is the tree in the guest bath. This plastic tree I bought this at an H.E Butt grocery store in south TX in the 1970’s. This tree has a variety of different ornaments.

I bought the small clay and wood birds in Mexico about the same time I bought the tree.

The four N-O-E-L children were given to me by my friend who gave me other decorations belonging to her aunt.

In the study my collection of Santas are on display:

The Santa collection is described here.

It is really great to see so many personal approaches to decorating for Christmas. Thank you Boo Mama for hosting this tour.

I enjoyed visiting your home. I'll check out the other posts. I notice you have Yorktown burner covers on your stove. That is the pattern of my everyday dishes.
