2012 Christmas Home Tour

christmas front entry door

Welcome to our Christmas home.  You've seen many of these pictures before, but there are a few new ones thrown in too!   (And if you've been following for awhile you'll notice that I finally spray painted the brass doorbell black - yippee!! Only took me 2&1/2 years.)

In the entry foyer we have a chalkboard Christmas tree with vintage clip on earrings turned magnets as ornaments. 

Our mantel this year.
