Christmas Tour of Vicki’s Home…

Hey there…So happy to have you stop by today for a Christmas tour of my home! A special thanks to Kendra of Joy in our Home for hosting this wonderful tour of 18 Christmas Homes!  Be sure to visit Thursday when Jennifer showcases her cottage. Each day you can visit each of the other bloggers and their homes listed at the bottom of this post.

Now, lets get this party started! You may want to grab your cup of hot cocoa or coffee and settle in next to the cozy fire. My post is loaded with lots of photos. It was so hard for me to decide which photos made the cut. It was kind of like having to choose a favorite child and I apparently have 502 children! Yes, that is 502 photos that I took of my home. I don’t mind sharing that I love Christmas and Christmas decorations. I’ve been collecting ornaments and Santa Claus’ since I was a little girl.

This year I have been feeling quite nostalgic and decided to use more traditional Christmas colors and elements in my decor. Lets stroll over to the …

Dining Room

For my dining room I liked using rustic, woodland elements. I think this is now my favorite room in the house. Even though our dining room is more formal, I really like this casual, pretty theme.

It reminds me of our time spent in North Carolina…although close up he does seem to resemble Angry Bird :)

Here’s where nostalgia struck…I decorated in mainly traditional red and green – using Santa’s and vintage ornaments.

    Vicki, OOOHHH I love your holiday home tour and can’t believe you did all that. It looks lovely. Where do I start, I love both trees and they are sooo different but both so beautiful. I love that cute fox couple on your mantel as they are soooo sweet. So enjoyed it and can’t wait to see Jen’s too. Have a great day hugs, Lisa

Hugs :-) Bwg ~~~

      Bobbi – You’re the best! I really do love Christmas and have been collecting since I was a little girl. I’m still a firm believer that you still get presents from Santa if you believe!!

  8. says

    I love your home! I am quite jealous that you have evergreens and berries growing in your yard! What! I love both trees, but I really love the fox one. So cute!

    • says

      Hi Shambray – yes, I am lucky to have the greenery and berries in my own yard – it comes in so handy at this time of year! This year I really have been partial to the fox – they seem so sweet don’t they?

  9. Kendra @ www.joyinourhome.com says

    Wow, Vicki!!! Looking through your pictures, I changed my mind about 50 times of what was my favorite! It’s allll so pretty! I love red decor at Christmastime…. Love your vintage pieces and how you made them fit into your decorating! SO happy to have you a part of this tour and look forward to seeing Jennifer’s cottage! Ps. Loved the children’s comment! Lol

    What a beautiful home tour! I am in LOVE with your deer/fox tree! I really can’t wait to hear how you made the fox ornaments. The deer wreath is gorgeous, too! Thanks for sharing! I am in the Christmas Home Tour, too, Wednesdays group!

  11. Tardevil says

    My favorite things in the tour are the use of plaid, the Santa tree, and the vintage truck. Love the trophy cups w/ greenery, too, but it is all very pretty! Thanks for sharing.

  12. says

    I can see why you had a hard time cutting out photos. Your home is just beautiful. I love all your nostalgic decor, and those foxes on your mantel are just plain adorable! So happy to be on this tour with you! Have a Merry Christmas!

    Nici
