Tuesday's Tour. . .Our '2013' Holiday Home

 
With Thanksgiving  just a couple days away I thought that it might be fun to spread a little Christmas cheer.
 
I don't know about you, but seeing others Christmas décor gets me all excited to dig in and decorate!
 
 I have just started on this years décor so I am taking you on a 'holiday tour' of our home from last year.
 
 
I absolutely love the Christmas season and the spirit that it brings!
I am so happy to have you and I hope you enjoy our Christmas home.
I wish you ‘Plaid Tidings’

Oh my oh my, where to begin, your decor is so beautiful, so very festive and so classic. I always tend to love the smallest details and I loved your book page trees, the tiny house on books and the red trucked filled with ornaments. Thank you for opening up your beautiful home and sharing with us. Hugs, Beverly

I am amazed at all the "Christmas" in your house.

If you invited me over, I don't think I would be very sociable. I would be lost in "looking" and taking in all the wonderful details.

Love the plaid, Jann. It's so timeless. You and hubby are such a cute couple. I'm glad you shared that photo; you both look so happy. Okay, I totally want to move into your basement. That kitchen would be perfect for me. What a lovely home you have. Made all the more beautiful with your Christmas décor. All of it is wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

Everything looks so beautiful ... it would be hard for me to pick a favorite ... however, I love the red bicycle. Doubt that I could get one in my house.
Have a wonderful, blessed Christmas.

Hi. I was wondering if you did the redwork of the boy and girl holding a string of Christmas stockings and mittens. If so, what is the name of the pattern and/or who is the designer. I have a friend who does redwork stockings every year and I's love to do this up for her. Thank you. Mona @ peaceandquilts@gmail.com
