My Home Tour- Christmas 2021

 Hi friends,

I wanted to invite you over 

for a little tour of

what's happening at our house.

We have been having some great weather!

We are hoping for some rain-

It's cold but nice.

Come on in!

Instructions for the Galvanized Tin Trees.

First out of the Christmas box is always the Manger.

Then I think about the mantle-

I decided to go a bit rustic this year.

I shared how to make the stars here .

Years ago my husbands' boss 

was going to  throw away this

Greyhound wagon!

I was happy my husband

was there to save it.

I stenciled the rusty saw back for Christmas in July!

The blanket ladder instructions are here .


I have enough ornaments to change the theme

of the tree each year if we want -

It's hard to see with the lights on.

I filled the tree with some of my collection of

putz paper houses.

My son made the wood crate we use to

cover the tree base.

I made these pillows from old shirts here

Over the kitchen sink, I have a spring loaded curtain rod

covered in garland.

This year I hung some vintage cookie cutters and kitchen tools.

I have the bakery sign up year-round

Stacked funnels make great trees.

Shiny Brites on egg scales.

I love old potholders.

I have some Christmas aprons and linens that I put on display.

I made these over sized gift tags just for fun.

Just cut two corners of your wood on an angle.

Then drill a hole to add jute or rope.

Paint the tags with acrylic paint.

The tags were handwritten with a paint pen.

I used wood glue to overlap my tags so they would hang 

right. Then add bow or greenery.

It's light weight and can hang on an old window.

Poinsettias were left in their pots and just

put them in a galvanized bucket.

These small trees sit by the front door.

That's all for now!

I keep adding more each day.

Do you get it all done in one sweep or in layers ?

Thank you for visiting.

Enjoying the season,

xo Lisa S

      I'm with you on decorating over a few days. With Christmas Carols
      playing loudly I work slow and enjoy the process.
