Holiday Home Tour 2007





I am so excited about this! This is my first time to join into the greater blogging community in this way! I think it is going to be so much fun! I have been looking so forward to it. Thank you, Boomama for hosting! I am looking forward to seeing all of your homes!! (For those of you new to this like I am, you can click on Boomama's name and see her home and then there is a whole list of people participating and you can click on each of their names and see their homes!)
Without further ado . . . Welcome! Come on in.




my living room


dining room


kitchen

Here's my skinny little apartment sized tree and my sled. Thanks for buying the sled for me, Mom! I really like it! I am so proud to actually have presents wrapped and under the tree so early this year! I have had that little reindeer stuffed animal since high school.


The top of the drum table from my great-grandma that sits in my living room. My tea creamer full of evergreen sprigs, my adorable nephew Caleb and my sister-in-law Mandy, such a great mom! An outdated lock salvaged from Adrian's old house built circa 1860 (he's redone it all and it's incredible and on the market in Missouri if anyone is interested!) My Eiffel Tower lamp and pearl K, a vintage looking wreath my grandma, Sweetie, crafted for me. An old Santa Golden book from my childhood, the sweet all about Kelly book Jenni and Jenny made for my 30th birthday and my guestbook, please sign and say you came by! :)


Jenny's sweet boy Colton on my tree and Season's Greetings bought at the New Friends New Life Home Tour.

a beautiful glass ball given by a student, the red blown glass bird I bought in Rothenburg ob der Tauber Germany
and the glass ball that I bought in Venice but it broke and I put all the pieces into this clear bulb.

presents and reindeer
I'm pretty much a details girl so I took a bunch of pictures of the details. Don't know how many pics blogger will allow me to post. I was shocked at how many I ended up taking. I may do more than one post. Look for as long as you want or skip on to the next! :) Thanks for coming. Kelly
p.s. I have just learned that when you do multiple posts on the same day, no matter what order you try to post them in they will end up in the order that you wrote them in so please feel free to see the previous posts if you want to see the rest of my pics. Blogger drives me crazy sometimes but at least it allowed me to post all these pics last night without a hitch! There are things to be thankful for!


you can see the rest of my tour here, here, here,
here and here.  :)
