time for a few more?

Here's the last of the Christmas photos
 before
it's time to put it all away.
We had a lovely Christmas.
And you?






I found the aged-tinsel tree
at 
Target. 




Here is a rare 
whole-room shot
of the dining room
minutes before my company arrived.
It's a rare shot 
because 
there are no piles.






A little more Christmas 
on my freshly painted porch







  Cocoa on the porch, anyone?

Love your harlequin dining room chair collection/set, I have the same set up and love it. Some are from my husband's grandfather's shoe store and have sentimental value but are quite uncomfortable and the others have been collected over the years and all mean something to me. They are all made of Queensland silky oak, one of my favourite timbers. Hope you had a lovely christmas....greetings of the season from Australia.

I would love to come over. I love your entire house, but each time you show a picture of your porch, wow! It is so amazing. All of your Christmas stuff looked so pretty. I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday!

Take care, Sue

I'd love to sit a spell on this beautiful porch and drink hot cocoa with you, Rene'. Maybe someday we can make it happen.

Here's to dreaming of things to come in 2012:-)

I've enjoyed your Christmas home, even though I've had to sneak in and out without leaving a comment. It was almost as good as being there for a private, personal tour!

We had a interesting but lovley Christmas. My husband rosted a pig for the first time. Didn't turn out as planed. Lets just say we had sides for dinner. But it was still a wonderful day. Your decorations are beautiful. I know what you mean about piles. I can't seem to keep up with all the ones at my house.
