Holiday Home Tour 2008 - Part 1

As the Holidays are almost upon us, I have put another Holiday Home Tour behind me. Last Saturday, I had approximately 75 women came through my home. This is my fourth, and possibly my last year for awhile, that I have participated in it for the Round Barn Potting Co. I've enjoyed thoroughly doing it every year, but it takes a lot of time and energy to put it on (not to speak of the money involved). But none the less, it is more than worth it. I have met many wonderful people, and have hopefully inspired and encouraged them in their holiday decorating.

This year it was even extra special to have had Sue Whitney, of Junk Market Style, to take time out of her busy schedule to attend. I am contributor to her website, so it was thrilling to have her as guest in my home. She was able to attend with another contributor, Gretchen Schaumann, and so it was a little Junk Market reunion. Check out her take on the tour on Junk Market Style.

Here are some of the pictures from the tour . . .

My bird bath done up for the holidays!

A French park bench along with one of many Christmas trees this year!

Being good is such a lonesome job!
Vintage Church candleholder with an extra-large Christmas stocking!

A planter filled with greenery, a metal dove and a pair of vintage skates.

What a sweet pair of child's skates!

There's no place like home!

Aren't these the cutest little boots! The shovel I won at a silent auction at the Junk Bonanza. It was one of Ki's projects. Yeah!

Simple wall candleholders on the pillar showcase this winter vignette.
My Front Room was done up in all whites and silvers with silver sage blue walls.

The capital the tree is sitting in was purchased at Junk Market a few years back, and the unique branch on the mantle was the icing on the cake!
That's just the beginning pictures of my home tour with more pictures to come. Also check out Lori Miller's home which was on the tour at The Round Barn Potting Co. Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!
