Merry Christmas home tour

I think I am about decorated! Welcome to my Christmas home.  We will start at the front door.  Funny how when you see it is pictures you will see what  you for got, (like hiding the wire that plugs in the lights.)

My front door. The wreath was made from a pine wreath and the berries, pine cones and leaves were added.

I added pine boughs to the shelves of my plant stand and hung threes metal stars.

My junk birdhouse, as I call it.  It just has all sorts of old knobs, hinges and wires on it, and I love all of the old things on it.

In my front entry way you are greeted with my Santa on a fish. (Sorry that the picture is blurry.)
Man I must have been having a problem holding the camera still. These are in my piano room and because these nativities are so small I decided to display them on my cake stand.
This one is from Mexico.

This one from , I am thinking Peru or Chile.  The reason I don't know the exact place is that these all came as a set and I liked how they looked, so I am not really sure.  They are made from clay and look like they were hand painted. I got them as a set from E bay from a woman who had been collecting them for years.

This is a view on top of my piano.The reindeer are from pottery barn.

This is on one of my favorite pieces of furniture.  My great grandmothers buffet. (Oops, I forgot to remove the scents y spray before taking the picture.)

The tree in the piano room. Do you remember those glitter balls?

Now into the Dining Room.  These 3 trees are in the corner.

Here is the Dining Room table. And the glitter balls again.
I added a wreath, some feather trees and silver glitter trees.  Oh, and don't forget the antlers!

A view of the table and mantle.

I left the picture that I had hanging and just added a silver dove.  I attached it to the glass with some glue dots that I use for scrap booking.

More glitter and shine!
I am kind of liking the silver and white look.

I added some silver tinsel around the bottom of the steeple houses.

see how it makes those little houses shine!

I didn't add much to the garland,just a pine cone garland, twinkle lights and the silver doves.

Added a few candles to the table. 
I hung this in my kitchen.

This was hand done and was a gift from my daughter.

This is the tree without the flash of the camera on.
This is with the flash.
Now we are downstairs.  This is the tree in the family room.  I added some green glitter fabric garland around the tree and all sizes of green and brown balls.

This is the mantle, I added more cedar garland with twinkle lights, glitter ornaments, and green glitter icicle ornaments.

See those glitter clear icicle ornaments, with three potted trees in front.

The soldiers standing at attention.  I got these as a gift from my daughters, I think they were from Pottery Barn.

Here it is all put together.

This sleigh is used as a table in front of my couch, just added some big pine and red berry balls.

Then I added some pine boughs to this bookcase.

Thanks for visiting!
