Christmas Tour (Part Two)

Baby It's cold outside!!!!
I'm staying indoors (after a failed attempt to get to town in this hideous snow!) So as promised I can finish my Christmas house tour!

As I said in my previous post I had to move furniture into the hall to accommodate my huge tree I'm actually loving it and the beauty of it is that it provides me with another surface to adorn with Christmas pretties!!!

My Favourite decoration this year (it changes annually!) is a beautiful crystal basket filled with spare baubles. This basket was, very kindly, given to me by Victoria's family as a keepsake when their aunt Rene passed away, and as such, is very special to me.

I would love to, one day, own a house that has a hall big enough to house a full sized Christmas tree. Until then I have a smaller one to satisfy my obsession.

Oh and I just wanted to show you this little man! I love nutcrackers they always remind me of childhood visits to Christmas shops in Germany. I've decided that he needs a friend so will be on the lookout to start a little collection up!

The Green, red and white cozy theme gives way to a cooler, girly, pink theme as we head upstairs.

A White tree decorated with pink and gold (oh and tiny shoes and bags!)
Here are some of my favourite decorations!

Unfortunately I can't show you all of my house as we would need to add parts 3 and 4 to the tour (and I would need to upload far more pictures and they seem to be taking ages at the moment!)

I hope you enjoyed the tour!

Everyone take care in the snow!

Lots of Love

I did enjoy the tour! I especially liked the white and pink tree. Lindsey collects nutcrackers too. They are wonderful, but we didn't put them out this year. I hope you and your family have a most wonderful Merry Christmas! Twyla

I love the way your mantelpiece is looking, that 'noel' is so sweet.
Hope you are enjoying the run up to Christmas!

That tree is so girly!! How many trees do you have??? It makes my very little tree look sad now :( I haven't even put the lights on yet! That's why I don't normally have a tree because I'm never at home to enjoy it. I'm not sure about the nutcrakers, everyone seems to love them but I'm a little frightened but them! :) x
