Christmas House Tour 07




Welcome!
Have a shortbread and grab a glass of something festive. We have egg nog for those in the Northern Hemisphere and fruit punch for us south of the Equator.
BooMama has 'sponsored' a worldwide house tour today so those of you who've been touring my place for the past two weeks are just going to have to sit through it again.
No, it's ok...
relax...
breathe.
I can hear Sheepy hyperventilating from here :]
I wouldn't do that to you - because, for a start, it would take an hour to load and it just might cause the internet to explode and I wouldn't want to do that
So, at the main instigator's suggestion I'm just posting the RumpusRoom with links to the rest if you're so inclined.
it is here, here, here, here, here, here [ still with me?]
here, here, here,
here, here, and here

and there's more but I'll stop now - you can check the archives
Hope you enjoyed your visit and have a very happy Christmas!

LOL, I think the North Pole exploded in your living room! It's wonderful. Thanks for sharing your decorations with us.

Southern Heart said...

Hi Susan! Thank you for your note on my blog. You were right...I missed the link with the postcards...very pretty, and a great idea! :) You asked about mine...I have quite a few of them matted and framed, and usually use them on the dining table when we are having a holiday dinner. I used to have them in the front hall until we got the Budweiser house and Clydesdales for DH. My mother passed away in October, so this fall has been a bit here-n-there, and we didn't get out all of our decorations this year. The Santas and Nutcrackers, and the postcards, are spending the holiday in storage. I'll be suprised when they come out next year! :)

Thanks again so much for stopping by...

Kelly M. Parkison said...

Cherdecor said...

Thank you for sharing your home. Everything is so festive!

Bev Brandon said...

you absolutely love Christmas, don't you...lovely...i collect antique postcards too...

Alice said...

Oh gosh, do I feel lazy? My tree is sitting in the middle of the lounge room, totally naked, while I sit here thinking, "Do I really want to have to go and get the decorations and fight with that tree?"...lol

Yet here is Susan's house, decorated from top to toe, and beautifully done at that.

How could anyone feel other than full of Christmas cheer living in a house as colourful, pretty and magical as that?

It's lovely, Susan.

Wow. Wow. Holy cow. You must have interior designer DNA or something. So clean, too. I'm afraid to breathe on the screen for fear of messing something up.
