The Year’s Past Christmas Tour

When I begin to decorate my home for Christmas,

I look back on the year’s past Christmas tour to see how I can use my current Christmas

decor in a different way that I had in the past.

While referencing last year’s Christmas tour, I thought that I would present it again

to you and for those who are new to my blog, a chance to see what I did last year.

Decorations once used in the kitchen has landed in my great room this year.

I am dancing to the Christmas Shuffle.

Welcome to my 2015 Christmas Home Tour.

Welcome to my home!

In the past I have placed this feather tree in the guest room.

I love it so much that I moved it to where I can see it throughout the day.

By the kitchen sink!

  11. I always enjoy looking at your house no matter the season. This year I’ m trying to do more decorating with what’s there instead of removing everything and then sitting out decorations. My goal all this year was to simplify as I start my 7th decade of life. Still a work in progress. Ha! But I’m learning from all you lovely bloggers.

  12. So man beautiful details. Stunning!
