Our Christmas Home Tour

Welcome to our home at Christmas.

Hurry in, the temperatures are c-o-l-d outside, where the frost and snow is plentiful.

Here in Alberta, Canada, we are almost assured a white Christmas.

When you enter our home, you'll be greeted by a cozy fire, and the living room decked out in it's Christmas best.

The large tree in the living room is traditionally decorated, with treasured ornaments collected over many years.

Each year we add a few more ornaments to it.

I love to use natural elements throughout such as pinecones, feathers, and garlands.

Paperwhites are a must each and every year.

I also love to decorate with handmade finds, such as these glittered snowballs, vintage elements, such as this silver bowl, and a lot of fresh greens.

In our kitchen, you'll find a tiered tray, filled with fruit and nuts.....

Cedar boughs a top of the cabinets......

And transferware creating a backdrop for the Fitz and Floyd Santas.

This is the first year we have had this flocked Christmas tree which is in our family room. I adore the flocked branches, and romantic decor.

Hydranges and handmade silhouettes adorn the tree.

Care for a warm drink? In the dining room, you'll find everything you need for a cup of hot cocoa, or apple cider, if you prefer.

Of course, the sunroom is also decorated for the season.

 Thank you for taking this tour of our holiday home! May this Christmas be your merriest yet!
