Christmas Homes Tour Part 4

I spent the day yesterday painting my staircase. It's been quite the job and it's been keeping me from my art. For the moment I don't have any paintings on eBay. But, I promise one is coming soon. I may share a peek at the newest one tomorrow.

I always unload this old cabinet at Christmas so I can fill it with my Santa collection.
Most of these are Santa's that I painted and some were gifts.This room is decorated in just about every corner.
This is my favorite room in the house. It's very rustic and comfortable. The massive stone fireplace has a huge stone mantle. It makes it a little difficult to hang stockings from it since there is no way to tack them up. The result was to tie them to the garland. A "Canoe Rental" sign hangs above a garland draped doorway to the left of the fireplace.
This is a closeup of the garland around the doorway to the right of the fireplace.
Tucked in the corner is our cabin theme Christmas tree. A pair of snowshoes decorated with white jingle bells and a little greenery hangs on the wall.


  1. Well, I can see why that room is your favorite in the house... it would be mine too! Your home is absolutely beautiful. It's like you live in a beautiful painting. Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage
