I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

Home Tour 2010 Part Two - Dining Room and Tree # 5

Welcome to our Home Tour Part Two.

Today I would like to show you our Dining Room.

This is my most Victorian looking room.

I have a 7 foot slim tree in the corner of the room. And this is tree # 5

To see my other trees, please click on the pictures of each on my sidebar

One of my Old World Santa's that I collect....

This is my Mauve Victorian Tree...

I have collected ornaments for this tree over quite a few years now...

The tree has white lights on it along with pink and clear Rose lights.....

I have white tear drop beads draped around the tree and rose colored ones hung like tinsel....

Next to the tree is another one of my Old World Santa's on a marble topped pedestal stand....

This is a hand made Santa that I bought for only $40 from a woman who was retiring and selling off her Santa's.

Back to the tree....
I have tucked white Baby's Breath, frosted roses and pink sprays into the tree...

Here are some of my favorite ornaments...

Three picture Tea Pot Ornaments....

This one has a pic of my Dad holding Joey, my oldest son.

And this one is of my Dad holding Jim, my youngest son.

This one of of my Mom

This picture on the wall is called " May I Play? "

My fake window....
I hung curtains to cover a pass through from the Dining Room into the Kitchen

Looking into the Kitchen

My stereo in the corner...

A Victorian Angel....

On top of my stereo...

Top of a cupboard that my Dad made to match the Dining Room set which was inherited from Joe's Grandmother

Some of my Tea Cup collection....

My Chandy was given to me by one of Joe's Aunts who didn't want it...

Of Course, I had to decorate it...

An Angel hanging in the one corner

A Victorian Stocking......

My Santa sitter...

My Village...

The photo on the shelf is of Joe's Maternal Grandparents....

This village was a complete set from Sam's Club...

This paper mache Santa was $4.00 in Salvation Army....

My Hutch with my collection of Moss Rose China

The photo is of my Paternal Grandparents....

Some of my Victorian Dolls.....

The sled is handmade.....

I did the arrangement in it....

So this is my Dining Room.........
