My Home Tour is almost finished and today I would like to show you Trees # 13 and # 14 and to recap the first trees that I showed you way back in October/ November!
I am going to take you upstairs........
This is the garland going up my railing at the top of the stairs.....
The only room that does not have a tree in it is the upstairs bathroom.
I did make a wreath for the door!
Why is the wreath purple and why have I not shown you this bathroom before???
Well, it is the smallest bathroom known to man!
And I haven't shown you it because it is too small to take pictures inside of it!
So here is a glimpse......
It is decorated in deep purple and sage green but as you can see...sink,toilet and tub!
That is it!
Whoever built our townhouses did not plan right because my bedroom is 16' x 20'!!
You think they could have made the bathroom just a wee bit bigger!
Well, it is less to clean!
Moving on to what used to be my son Jim's room which is now my guest room
I have this odd piece of furniture that I took from my MIL's neighbor's house
( they were going to throw it out!!) and sort of turned it into a fake mantle and fireplace!
The small 12 inch tree is Tree# 13!
It is decorated with mini Victorian ornaments from Micheal's a few years ago!
The Skater Girl is mine from my childhood!
These house/churches were from Target last year on Clearance for $5.00!!!
The embroidered scarf on the top was made by my maternal grandmother
Here is the whole room with what was originally posted as Tree # 4
Some of my Debbie-Dabble followers may remember when I decoupaged wrapping paper on these wig heads.......
Well, I added lace and bead collars with cameos!
To recap, this is my Nostalgic tree with ornaments that are special to me like Baby's First Christmas, childhood ones, etc....
It is a 6 foot potted tree.....
Dolls and a Santa at the base...
This lamp was originally in my Den but had to be moved for the tree in that room and I did not want to pack it away so it will live in this room for a bit....
Two ornaments hanging from the shelves along with a Santa and an angel......
My Fake Fireplace!
There are shelves inside those doors and that is where I store all my old magazines that I cherish!
My Teddy Bear Tea Party.....
Jim ( used to be his room) wanted to know if it was the room for the girl I never had.....
Maybe for the grand daughter that I will have ....
And this is the last tree, Tree # 14!!
See, Joe does have his own space in the house!
This is an alcove in the Master Bedroom.
It is his Pittsburgh Shrine!!
This is his Pittsburgh Penguins and Steelers Tree that I did for him!
We have season tickets to the Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins Hockey games which is the AHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins........
He was extremely glad when I decided to paint out bedroom gold!!
This is homage to Joe being a Mail Man!!
Also in the Master Bedroom...
This Tree was originally posted as Tree # 2, my vintage tree!
It is the tree from my Childhood...
This is very much like the village under my parent's tree....
Some pieces actually were my parent's....
And once again, to recap, here is the trees in my Craft Room
This small white tree was Tree # 3
Above my Craft table...
And this was the first tree I decorated this year....
Tree # 1!!
My Shabby Pink and White Tree......
Some goodies at the base of the tree....
Joe's Grandmother's Singer Sewing Machine.....
And that is Joe's Christening Gown.... both of my sons also wore it....
Some pretties on the floor...
And that is the tour of my upstairs!!

and try to keep it all the year.
