Christmas Tour of My Home

So rumor has it there is going to be a Christmas 2010 Tour of Homes hosted by The Nester. Also joining the tour at Kelly's Korner.

So I decided to give you a Christmas tour of our Home Sweet Home.

Hello there, I'm Santa Claus, a new addition to the household. ThriftyAnnabella picked me up this past Spring on a Dollar General Clearance aisle. You'll have to excuse my price tag showing. My owner forgot to clip it off in all her busy-ness. Come on in and let me show you around a bit.

Here I am dressed in my red suit, posing alongside my wife. We are standing in the curio cabinet giving it a little Christmas cheer.

Sitting beside us are some of our little Elf friends. The owner of the house loves picking my friends up any time she sees one at a garage sale and we're so glad she gives them a new home.

If you look around you'll also see some of our Angel friends in various places. The newest Angel to join to household is the one dressed in burlap.

The dining room hutch is also adorned in it's Christmas finest. Sitting in front of the homeowners holiday plates is the start of her Christmas village collection and we can't wait to see how it grows. You'll have to excuse the crooked picture, my owner is still learning how to take straight ones. :D

Of course, there are lots of little fun goodies for the kids lying around. The homeowner picked these fun snowglobes up at clearance sales a few years back and the kids love to see them blowing snow.

Last, but not least, is the Christmas tree, all adorned and sitting in front of the dining room window for all to enjoy. This was taken just after she finished decorating it so she had not had a chance to move the boxes yet.

Well, I sure hope you enjoyed my tour of Annabella's place. I'm looking forward to the start of Garage Sale season and all the clearance sales to see what new friends and decor will be joining me for next year.

Until next time. . .

Santa for ThriftyAnnabella
