My Home Tour

I'm still working on decorating my house
so I will add as I go
So please check back

I just love this tree with the colored balls
I can see it out of the parlor window
one of those things that just brings a smile
to my face when ever I see it

Over the years we had fun with this sign with our kids
It was 3 to 2 so they had it more on the nice
than we had it on naughty


At night

The Family Room
The snowman collection has a new home this year

this is the one that started it all off......
Devon made it
when she was 3 1/2 in preschool
It has been put together more times than I can remember

A few years later these snowman
were created at Michaels create a craft
and came to join the group

A few years after that 
the girls both made these in Girl Scouts

I bought these at Target already made

The Dining Room
Snowglobe collection

The Front Parlor:
The Santa Room

On top of the Armoire
