Christmas Tour

Since I haven't finished my Christmas painting that I'm working on I'm going to share a few photos of our house when we were on the city's Christmas Homes Tour. I'll add more photos each day but for today I'll share pictures of our entrance. I've placed glass garden gazing balls in flower pots and stuck evergreen around the edges. A gold wire ribbon is tied around the ball and tied in a large bow at the top then placed on some columns that are painted gold. A wooden pineapple, apple, and pear are surrounded by leaves and eucalyptus to form a welcoming arrangement on the stairway wall. The railing is decorated with evergreen, gold beads, and ribbons. This is the carpet that I recently removed from the stairs. I'm still refinishing them.
The door is surrounded by evergreen and dried orange slices.
A wire urn is filled with beaded fruit and a wreath hangs on the wall.

As you go up the stairs from the entrance there is an antique white mantel shelf hanging on the wall loaded with family pictures. The pictures are draped with evergreen and gold beads.
