Holiday Home Tour Part 2 - 2009



Here we go . . . more house tour pictures!  This is only Part 2.  I hope I'm not boring you, or giving you picture overload!  Again, to see the pictures in their larger form, just click on them.  But without further ado, here's the beginning of the interior . . .

 

As you entered, you were greeted by my mannequin.  Hello, Darlin'!



And hello Winter!

 

These shoe forms are the kind of things you always wonder what to do with.  Here they just hold some greens and some button bouquets

 

Love these little rubber boots.


 


The tree in my front room fits perfect in this shallow urn.





Small part of my white ironstone and brown transferware collection.



I did a simple mantle this year and just flanked it with some cool button back chairs.





Entering into my family room.



I decided to do the triple trees again (triple threat!--LOL).  Just put them in a different spot.  I have to change it up every year, don't ya know.   The trees I made.  The posts I think were from English horse riding events.  I just added the faux branches.

 

When in need of a side table, why not try a bird bath?  This one I put a footed grate in the center, but you can always add a glass top.  And my unique clarinet lamp sits on top the grate.



I added rock salt inside it to resemble snow. At a little over $2 a bag, it's pretty inexpensive.  I saw them selling a jar of it at Restoration Hardware.  It was a lot more expensive, and you got a lot less!

 

I had this cool green slim table under my TV, but wanted to add length.  A black shutter fit the bill!

 

 



Love these all white vintage christmas lights.  They display nicely in my vintage aquarium.

 



Some more of my stoneware collection.



I purchased this capital at one of the JUNKMARKET sales.  It's made of clay and horse hair.  Very fragile, but so cool! 



These tall pipes I've been told are grain shoots.  Of course they would be farm equipments!  Love them!

There ya go!  I will be posting more as I can.  It will be a very busy week getting prepared for Christmas.  But yah!  It's almost here.  Have a great week!

I love all of your little groupings. I could just take them and put them right in my house and I would be oh so happy. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't want you to have them, I would just like to have them also. Beautiful taste!!

Merry Christmas.

Love all the photos and the peek into your lovely and festive home.
The shutter to elongate the shorter table is a terrific idea.
Merry Christmas

Lani,

LOVE the pictures! Your home looks SO yummy and inviting! The architectural elements, fun little trees of all textures, a bit of rust here and there...but I gotta tell you, the grain shoots are out of this world!! I am in love!

Hopefully NEXT year we junk girls can make it for the tour (wink)...yes, you'll do it again, won't you?!!

Merry Christmas! Andrea

Overload...are you kidding me? I'm taking notes! Let's see, the fur wrapped glamor doll, the precious boots, the simplicity of the snowflake pillows, the Fab U Lous TTT's (you made those?),that over the top lamp...did I leave anything out I'm in love with? One thing I gotta warn you...I'm not borrowing the light idea...girl, I'm out and out stealing it! Wonderful wonderland!
Merry Christmas!!!

Lani the tour was fabulous, but online its fun to see everything all over again. Loved the grain shoots, lights in the battery jar, and the shutter on the table really is perfect with the flat screen TV size too. Of course, I adore your mannequin.
