Christmas Tour

A Holiday Christmas Tour. I am so pleased to have you visit. Although I haven't put up the fresh greenery yet there's still lots to see. Come on in, have some nips & nibbles and enjoy.

Welcome to CedarHill.....our home in the country.


This sweet papier mache reindeer is very, very old. He used to be green but most all of the paint has flecked off and the poor thing is losing his antlers.



A moss covered present all wrapped up in red bows and poinsettias rests in a cherub iron compote.


Please come on in.



Vintage candlesticks and an old cherub filled with cedar.


Wall vases filled with more cedar and candy canes.


A little glitz tucked in the poinsettia.


Old red glass ornaments fill a glass compote.


Antique white tree decorated by the birds with gold leaves, tinsel, ribbons, ornaments and roses.



I love the simplicity of our Nativity scene. It's wrapped in a gold beaded scarf to represent the kings' gifts to the newborn child.



A large papier mache Santa nestles in a vintage tin frame.


This colorful tree in the kitchen boast all the kid's ornaments and memory ornaments while a fresh candy cane wreath hangs in the window.


On the old country table a little bare white branch tree stands in a nest filled with red eggs, while fat red birds roost in the branches.




Simple brown paper wrapped presents make a sweet backdrop for bows and other adornments.


A favorite is this fishing Santa I gave to my husband one year. He stands behind our Christmas bags we use instead of stockings.



I am so happy you came. Let me give you a warm hug before you go and a cup of spiced tea for the road. From here just go to Pea's Corner for a list of everyone joining in on this delightful virtual tour. I'm a little early with my tour. The weather is frightful and I am afraid we may lose electricity so I posted early. xoxo Lynn

Lynn,
Your home looks gorgeous. I love the "branch" tree with the red birds. Stay in and keep warm; it is still howling here. I am posting on Wednesday's tour, if we ever thaw out.

As I was scrolling down through your tour, one photo was just more delightful than the last! I love the little white twiggy tree with the cardinals. Your kitchen is lovely! What a great way to display your papier-mache reindeer. I have a twiggy one out front that I need to spruce up. You have a beautiful home and it's especially festive during the holidays!

Hi Lynn, oh my goodness what a beautiful home you have, thank you for welcoming us to Cedar Hill :) Your home is so warm and inviting, love the vintage white tree, the birds, oh loving the birds! And the Nativity is beautiful, in fact everything is beautiful. We can see snow out through the windows, hope the weather is not too frightful. Our Pa grew up with snow and whilst we think it is amazing and romantic, he always said it can be frightful! Have a lovely week Lynn, hope you can get out and about! Jenn and Jacqui

Aside from all the wonderful antiques and knicky nackies you have up, what really makes it cozy is seeing the snow safely on the other side of the window pane!

But your house looks sooo cozy, make no mistake! Very welcoming!
