Home Tour of a Talented Friend

Hello my friends,
my oh my, Christmas is so very close and I wanted to share the fabulous homes that I got to tour.
 
I mentioned that I was honored to be included in two home tours with friends this year.
 
One of the homes belonged to my friend, Joanne.  We met through Instagram.  We both have a love for gardening and I was thrilled when I realized she only lived 15 minutes away. 
 Close to where I grew up.
 
I knew from the get go that she was a talented lady and when I found out that she had once managed Hallmark stores I knew she was a savvy lady as well.  But, I must admit; her Christmas décor left me speechless!
 
I think the pictures will do the talking.
 
Entry:
 
 
 



 
 

Living room:
 I can't believe I didn't get an entire photo of her tree.  It was bird themed and absolutely fabulous!











 

Kitchen:










 
I have had a sheep fetish the last 3 years so this display in her hall way took my breath away!
 
 
Look at those darling faces!
 

Lots of photos, but somehow; I don't think you'll mind.  :)
I didn't even show her outdoor space and playhouse all decked out for Christmas.
 
Hope you enjoyed my friends home.
 
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!
 
hugs,
Jann

Joanne's talent is so obvious in her Christmas decor, Jann. What a treat for the eye your post today is! I am a lover of anything Santa Clause and her collections are wonderful. I have developed quite a thing for sheep too but it seems they are not so easy to find, just anywhere. I really enjoyed your post and all the beautiful photos. Merry Christmas!

Wowsa! She definitely has that creative touch doesn't she! I love her displays and this makes me feel better about all my little displays now! My mom had a knack like this for putting things together. I enjoyed seeing how she grouped collections together like the sheep! What a perfect friend to have met- it's nice to know someone that shares similar taste!
Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas!
