Welcome Home Christmas Tour 2023

Many Christmas Tours are done at the beginning of the Season, but since it's a work in progress here from late October until Christmas Eve, it becomes a pictorial blog diary of our home at Christmas room by room. 
I'll keep it simple and share posts titles that you can click on to check out more details and d├ęcor. I usually go with a woodsy theme in the hearth room. I like to keep it cozy and comfy around the fire with wool throws and pillows. First up is the Hearth Room and mantel.

Hearth Room

The sideboard shows off a grouping of my of white ceramic houses, and an ironstone tureen holds a collection of vintage Shiny Brite ornaments.

The Cookbook Cupboard has my old toddler chair with Christmas tins.

A vintage tote filled with greenery and vintage utensils.

The kitchen niche is always a fun spot to decorate with vintage pieces.

The Garden Room

Ornament boxes are displayed in a fun vintage grocery basket.

My favorite Christmas Centerpiece in the Garden Room dining area.

I created a fun vintage element tree made from crates, suitcases, baskets and boxes.

 a vintage fountain statuary is dressed up for the holidays.

I love keeping my Entry area light and bright. This year it had a subtle angel/ ethereal theme.

This year my DIY Holly Topiaries from years ago make a comeback.

Vintage elements on the Front Porch give a hint at my love for vintage inside the door. 

Thankyou so much for sharing the Christmas Holiday Season with me.
Sending Blessings to you for a wonderful New Year!!!


  1. I really enjoyed seeing your home decked out for Christmas! I envy your lovely collection of vintage items--it is something to aspire to--one piece at a time! You do an an awesome job arranging your vignettes!

  2. Beautiful, as usual! Happy New Year!

  3. I read most of these posts individually, but this was a great way to assemble your entire home tour, Debra! No wonder it spans from October through December. That is a lot of creative work, all very well done. I can see that vintage retailer spirit in you shine!

  4. Debra,
    I am finally getting around to visiting and I will be stopping by your previous posts too! I love how you decorate for Christmas and I enjoy seeing all your collections!! It was a crazy Christmas season but ended well with the birth of our identical twin granddaughters on their uncle Joey's birthday!!! Happy New Year to you and your family!!!

  5. I am AMAZED at how much you accomplished this year! I just couldn't pull it off. I will have to start earlier next year. I love your topiaries and garden statue so much! I hope you are enjoying the calm after the holidays by now and feeling well!
