What I thought I would do is start at the front door and work my way through. So, there may not be a lot of explaining, maybe just captions under the pictures telling what room it is. I know you ladies are busy touring all the other houses out there in blogland. Occasionally I might say something about an idea that is orgingal with me. Most of the ideas are from someone's blog or straight from Pintrest. I don't mind that. If it's something I like, and I know they don't mind me being a copy cat, then I use it. I would hope that others would find a little bit of inspiation when they visit me.
So come on in ya'll!
|Nativity scene, designed by daughter, Hannah who was helping me clean and get ready for a Christmas get together. This is on the piano which sets in the foyer (picture above this one).|
|Music notes ornaments from the girls' piano teacher many Christmases ago. Still love them. Hoping to make a bunch of these. I've been seeing them a lot lately on different blogs.|
The following are pictures of the Kitchen taken from different angles:(see some of this here) from when we first built the house 18 years ago. We just updated the stove with this one. I sorta like it!
Some Christmas Kitchen Close-ups
|A Christmas gift from last year that I love!|
|Saw this idea of the candy canes hooked over the edge of a container, on a blog, but I did it before I saw it on the blog....promise! |
Now, for the last room, we will go from the kitchen to the Family Room.
and here's the other side when you're standing in the Family Room.
Guess you thought we didn't have a tree! We do, and another piano! We love music around here! This piano does not work...only for looks!
The tree and the shutters that I have had for a long time and used in several different places, but think the best use for them is to place Christmas cards on them.
Also, if you look closely you can see where I used scarves for garland on the tree. Since scarves are so popular right now, I thougt this was kinda cute. It definitely is an original. I'm sure no one else would even think of doing this!
Love using cranberries to decorate and to garnish with! You can see this here. Beautifull with some snow!
The special gift from last year (click here to see.) Can't wait to exchange with the girls this year. Rebecca will get mine and I will get Hannah's, I think.
|The red sled that I found in October at place in West Virginia. I have been wishing for one for a while. I had to give it a fresh coat of red paint and think it turned out OK. It sets at the back door.|
Well, there you have it, the 2011 Christmas tour of "My Old Kentucky Home"! I sure have enjoyed having you. Wish you all come for a real visit!
Ya'll come back anytime to visit!
