Tidings Holiday House Walk

This is the second day of the Tidings Holiday House Walk and I am so honored to have been ask to display my Christmas decor. I know that many of you have seen my house because of the linky party that was held. But then some of you have not especially those that are coming from some of the other blogs on the House Walk. So if you are tired of my house flip down to the bottom of this post and grab one of the other bloggers links and enjoy a new tour.

A special thank you to Cathy from 1929 Cottage blog and Judy from 20 North Ora blog.They went to a lot of work to create this wonderful Tidings Holiday House Walk for everyone!

For those of you who don’t know about my history I live in a small basement apartment and one of my Sons and his family live above me. It’s nice to have company when you are a single lady and for now this works out perfect for us and I really get to have hands on with four of my eleven grands.

The tour begins at the front door which enters into my kitchen. Enjoy!

  1. Jo,
    It is all so beautiful as I scroll down your post. A couple of things really grabbed me. That gorgeous angel in the frame oh my how beautiful. Love the angel wings with the veil and your mannequin is so sweet with her wings for Christmas. The sweetest pics are those of your grands. Nothing like seeing Christmas through children’s eyes. Loved the tour. So much pretty inspiration.


    • Thank you sweet friend, you notice those things that are angelic like because you are indeed one. You touch so many lives Kris. I very grateful to have you as a friend. I am blessed because of you. I just received a wonderful blue angel in the mail from and angel which really touched me. Thank you! Merry Christmas! Jo


  2. Jo I truly enjoyed my stroll through your charming vintage decorations that have a real charm of nostalgic beauty. I can’t get over just how much work you’ve done to make your Christmas cottage so pretty.


  3. Your vignettes are just fantastic! I love your white Christmas tree and your selection of ornaments and adornments are perfect. What a delightful haven you have created for yourself. How wonderful it must be to live so near to those darling grands too. Merry Christmas!

    Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I was quite smitten with all your angels, angel wings, music stars and Religious statutes!!!
    My favorite of your Santas has to be the Santa in his pj’s and slippers!!!
    Too, too cute!!!
