A Tour Is Just What The Doc Ordered...Cha, Cha, Cha!


The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.
~ Emerson


Welcome, welcome blog friends...being a gal that does not like being late...I wish that I could offer a platter of fudge and a homemade cup of spiced cider and show how delighted I am that you stopped by to say howdy!

I do have a pretty good reason for my tardiness...which I will chat about on a later post...but to make the upcoming story short...{can you do that?}...the doctor asked me what I do for relaxation...."blogging...duhhhhhh..."


So take a sip of your imaginary hot cider or whatever...its imaginary...and step inside our home in the Pacific Northwest. It has been snowing all week...Heaven!

Thank you Julia for hosting the merriment....you are most definitely the hostess with the mostess...and then some!



Welcome.....yep snow fall in the Northwest...ALL WEEK...Yipeeeee!


Cool ~ ola!


The next morn...if this doesn't make you want to decorate and share with guests...nothing will!


The reason...


One of my many Santas sitting tall to greet you...


A drawer full of tiny Santas....love it...


Snowman stool of joy...


Not just for banisters anymore...


My buddy...


I needed a 'pop' of color upstairs...I think this did the trick...


Fake~ola poinsettias...


Christmas goose...


Simple garland....


More goose love...


Santa in the living room....getting ready for a long winter's nap...


They're everywhere...


More simple ~ dimple garland...


The best napping couch on the planet...padded with Christmas cheer...


Ye 'ol tree...waiting for bows and more tinsel...


Our newest ornament honoring our Gus Henry....sweet boy we miss everyday...


Favorite Christmas chair...notice the spindles...Santas everywhere...and then some...


Dining room vignette...


A closer peek...ho, ho...


Santos Christmas gal...


One of my favorite collections...old carved spools and buttons...


Wreaths....


More...


My husband gave this baby tree to me our first Christmas we were married...almost 29 years later....it still doesn't have a chip or a crack....just like our marriage...blessed for sure...


Child's chair with wreath in Family room...


Reindeer in the Family room....

A bowl of reindeer and bells...delight...


Powder room...


Yep, I decorate every room...


Not even a pig on the wall can escape the festoon~ment of a wreath...


Angel babys...


Gloria...they are singing...even without mouths...a Christmas miracle...


A sleigh of snowmen and women in the Nook...


My main snow~dude...


Snow tea anyone???


Check out this amazing potpourri...it is called 'Frosty"....notice the corn~cob pipe and mittens? Baby bowls of cinnamon sticks, juniper berries and whole allspice fill the air with yummy goodness...


Christmas cow....holy cow!!!


My Mom gave me this little Christmas Mouse years ago...I place it right above my kitchen sink and look at it all season...and smile...all of the childhood memories you and Dad filled my heart with...I'm blessed for sure.
Thank you for coming by I have enjoyed sharing our home with you....the fun continues with Julia over at Hooked on Houses...she is the greatest and this tour has been amazing...
Merry Christmas!

Better late to a party than never, for sure! I'm so glad you joined us. I always LOVE to see what pretty and creative things you come up with, Ramona, and this tour was no exception. It's all just beautiful!

I'm glad the doctor ordered you to have us over to look around. You'll have to thank him for me. -J :-)

Hi Ramona,

As always I just LOVE all of your decorations. Always so pretty! I LOVE that banister Santa and your old spools and buttons! All that snow is just gorgeous!!!

Once again I am awed by your decor! I love the Santa chair, and all the Christmas animals! It is, as always, warm, inviting and welcoming (was that redundant, or repetitive???)
