My Parent's House Dressed For Christmas

Welcome to my parent's house! It may be big and open, but it is still a very warm and inviting space.



My mom has a spritual theme throughout the house all year around and at Christmas time it really comes to life. Angels, crosses and even butterflies are all a part of her Christmas decor.



This is the first time we have put this tree in the entryway. It is actually a tree I used to put up in the T.V./computer room at my house. I haven't put it up in a few years since there is a bookcase in it's spot now. It is done in all gold with angels, stars, nativities, crosses, and poinsettas. The dining room is very elegant and beautiful!



Love this chest!

This is the tree in the kitchen area. It is done in fruit, angels, crosses, doves, butterflies...etc. Everything has spiritual meaning. I love the colors in this tree!


Look at the butterflies at the top of the tree...butterflies have a spiritual meaning to my mom and me. They represent transformation and new life when we seek Christ. They are beautiful in so many ways...




This is a beautiful dining area in the kitchen. During the day it has an awesome view!


Love the angel by the sideboard.


Oh look! There's one of my tassels.


And a frame...


Here is a view of the living area...



Hope you enjoyed the tour! I think that's the last of the decorating posts...Whew! It's been a good run!


Only two more days...oh my! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season!!
