Christmas Home Tour

Our Christmas Angel Doll

Come on in out of the cold and snow!  

Yes, it is snowing - our first snow of the season!

It's so nice to have you here at Teacup Lane!

I cut a fake berry vine into pieces and made berry rings for our kitchen chandelier.

Here's a pretty wreath in our kitchen!

A vintage marble base lamp passed down from my Mother covered with a pretty Christmas lamp shade.

Our staircase all decorated with ribbon, Christmas cards, garland and rope lighting!

The rope lighting is so beautiful at night!

Another view of our decorated staircase.

Santa Claus felt door cover

Another cute felt door cover.

Our dining room chandelier with garland, berries and ribbons.
We bought this beautiful church at Boscov  - it's our first official village building!

Hubby received this lighted home as a Christmas present from his employer one year.  See the little dog house and puppy!

These are teapots I added to the village.  Mickey "Santa" Mouse is ringing in Christmas!
All I had on hand was batting to use as snow!  It's a little thick...looks like lots of snow came down on our village!

Hubby is still hooking up the train track.  It just fits on our dining room table.

The crocheted Santa door knob cover is vintage!  This is Mr. Gingerbread Man.

Another vintage crocheted Santa Door Knob Cover and presenting Mrs. Gingerbread.

Close up of our living room Christmas tree ornaments.

Our living room Christmas Tree - cost all of $25 from Target two years ago!

We love the slim Christmas trees!

Beautiful berry vine garland and huge red and white ribbon topping!

Hope you enjoyed your tour!  Come again soon.

  2. Your home looks lovely - so much fun - Thank you

  3. Your home looks wonderful Sandy. I love all you have done with it especially the felt on the doors, now did you make those from kits? Years ago I had a Christmas stocking kit in felt for my daughter which she still uses today. The two tree crocheted ornaments you made me are one our tree.

  4. I enjoyed seeing the decorations around your house. Because I've been sick, we haven't even taken any decorations out at all. I think we're just going to skip it and enjoy everyone else's. Isn't that awful?

  5. Hi Sandy! Everything looks beautiful, and I LOVE your doll!!.. I like your Christmas Village too, snow and all; but I was most taken with how the church even had it's own luminaries!! So pretty!!.. Wishing you blessings and lots of holiday fun in the days ahead! ~tina
