Our Christmas Home Tour

Our Christmas Home Tour

I was reading in the living room and enjoying the twinkle of the Christmas tree lights when it occurred to me that I should take some time to share our home with you. I finished my tea and started snapping photos. Welcome to our Christmas home tour.

tea by the Christmas tree I have seen some incredible Christmas home tours throughout blog land over the past weeks. From quaint cottages  to grand homes. They all have two things in common, they are all beautiful and they are all filled with the spirit of the season. With that in mind I give you our humble abode’s decked halls and assure you our home is filled with comfort and joy. ♥

oops…Izzy photo bombed this photo can you see his reflection in the mirror?

I added a bit of turquoise to the tree this year to match the turquoise cabinet I bought  this summer. If you missed my touch of turquoise post you can see it here

 This is our home dressed in all its Christmas happy. Sorry a few of the photos are a bit dark.

Please join me in the dining room. On the buffet you will find my collection of European Santas. A happy little group.

All of these lovely little ladies are so cute in their baking outfits.

The little counter area in the kitchen has a bit of Christmas old and new. That cute Christmas mouse was a gift from my Mother. Something to remind me of my childhood.

In the family room we have the reason for the season. The beautiful nativity set my husband bought me several years ago.


I don’t have a a lot of decorations in here. As this is our snuggle up room. Loaded with blankets and  throws to keep us cozy during movie nights and television viewing.

    Katherine! You and your attention-to-detail-decorating skills are beautiful and amazing. Your home is overflowing with coziness and Christmas spirit, and I love that Izzy photo bombed one of your photographs! Merry Christmas!! xoxo

  14. I loved seeing your home all ready for Christmas.

    I have a rolling pin ornament, I got from Sur le Table, but it is about 6″. I got it three years ago, also a whisk. Both would look cute on your little baking tree. I have a small tree with beverages. :)

    Merry Christmas.


  15. love the reindeer plate and the baking girl ornaments! very pretty home and decorations!

  16. Thanks! Just as I imagined it – stunning.

  17. I saw this post and said “Debbie if you want to see Katherine’s house – you need to go in and finish cleaning the carrots.” So with that inspiration or motivation – my carrots are clean :) Sitting here sipping mint tea and enjoying your home. I think I had that Christmas santa cup when I was a child as well. Of course you needed the Santa – he is gorgeous. But I really like the idea of the mini tree in your kitchen – cute cute. Does it have battery lights or is there a plug behind the tree? Merry Christmas Katherine – thanks for once again making my day a little extra special.

    • Debbie, you are bright light.To think that viewing my blog post is a reward is such a beautiful thing to read I am honored and humbled. Your comment is my reward for sharing. I love that little Santa mug too. The kitchen tree does have a plug but fortunately I have peaty of outlets in the kitchen. My hubby turns it on when he comes home from work and then he turns the rest of the lights on ( Christmas tree, mantel and outside). I think he secretly likes that little kitchen Christmas tree as much as I do. Merry Christmas my friend xo

  24. Your home looks beautiful! I love your decor. Thanks so much for sharing your space :)

  25. Dear Katherine, I loved your Christmas home tour. My mother took ceramics class too and I have a Christmas tree that she made. She picked the tree so she only had to paint the one color. The little lights on it add the color.
    I love the little mouse too. My mother loved the little Christmas mouse too.
    Your home is beautiful. It is reflecting the spirit of the season and all the love and care you put in to making it so warm.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy and Blessed New Year. Catherine xo

    • Catherine,thank you for your lovely comment. I think I know that tree well, My mother made one too. She painted it white and there are little holes all over where the colored lights go and inside there is a light bulb to make them all glow! I think our Mothers were very much a like. We do have the same name, so it all seems to fit perfectly doesn’t it. Big hugs and Merry Christmas wishes

  26. what an absolutely beautiful Christmas home! Your tour is simply lovely and your home is beautiful. Wishing you a most beautiful & wonderful Christmas sweet Katherine and wishing you all the best in the New Year!

    Your home is beautiful, great decorations! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas :)

  28. I got a bit behind on my blog reading, but I wanted to tell you your decor was beautiful! I just started a collection of European Santas myself this year, buying my first one trimmed out in white and gold brocade :). I also have a tree with lots of white. I LOVE your pops of turquoise that you have been adding to the decor. Such a cozy look you had at Christmas!
