I didn’t get a wreath for the front door this year – instead I put this together and hung it on the porch to the right of the front door.

Come right on in and shut the door behind you – the cold and snow can stay outside!  Our front door opens into our dining room – old houses have interesting layouts and lots of quirks and character.

Our living room – and one of the projects I was talking about.  Those slipcovers on the couch and chair are hot off the presses – er, sewing machine!

My deer from last year still presides over this room and considers it his own.  Beyond him you can see the first glimpse of another project that is still cooling off from its very recent finish.

My chalkboard art from last year never got redone but it did find a new place to hang this year.  We don’t use the corn stove anymore so the cupboard I had hanging here that stored all the stove stuff, was removed earlier this fall.  The chalkboard was the perfect thing to hang in its place.  Hopefully by next Christmas the stove will be gone too.

The deer on this shelf I found at Goodwill a few weeks ago and painted them white with gold accents.  They found a resting spot on the shelf in our bathroom.  It’s always fun to add some touches of festivity to the room we use for getting ready to go places!

Can you spot the camera that is an ornament?  I found it at Target.

I had impressive goals for some makeovers in my kitchen this year but somehow the months slipped away and those goals are going to have to get passed on to the New Year.  So I added some Christmas touches and called it good for yet another year!house tour christmas 2013-1
