I‘m so excited to be in a wonderful Christmas Tour of Homes! (or two, or three…) It’s so much fun and I can’t wait to see everyone’s beautiful decorations! Remember, we do live in Florida so there’s not much of a White Christmas going on here…unless you count the sand on the beaches! I hope my pictures give you a little taste of a Florida Christmas and thanks for stopping by!
The wreath on our front door reflects our love for the water! We are steps from Charlotte Harbor and enjoy the warm sea breeze at this time of year… I think it was about 80 degrees outside today!! Some days I love that, and some days I long for a little cozy cottage with snow on the ground.
This here is our SPECIAL piano….painted by me!
We purchased it years ago when our boys started piano lessons and we didn’t want to invest in a new piano. It was brown with scratches(not a nice look)! Now…it’s an original alright!
Since we don’t have a fireplace, we use this as our mantel!
I did find these beautiful blue and green poinsettias at Michael’s for $1.49!!! That’s just in case someone out there besides me wants blue and green flowers! Hmm…maybe that’s why they were so cheap!
Our Christmas Tree is a VERY special thing for us! For almost 20 years, we’ve been collecting ornaments from all over the world for our tree! Whenever we travel to a new place, we find a cool ornament to help us remember the trip. So we talk about our trips while we decorate. It’s a blast! My husband wrote a post about our Blessing Tree and here’s a picture of the “work-in-progress”. Isn’t my helper cute?
Our Palm Trees in the front yard are decorated with extra large metal starfish! These are some of my favorite things! The colored lights reflect off of them for a beautiful shimmering look!
Well, the last photo is of a little collection that I have on our dining room table. The little snowman bucket was purchased by Tim last year! I love it! He doesn’t really shop (ever), so that makes it extra special!
I have a great recipe for Reindeer Cookies…they’re so easy and cute!
I hope you enjoyed a little glimpse at how we decorate our home! Merry Christmas!
