One of the things that makes the Christmas Season such a fun and festive time is the decorating. Sometimes I drag my feet a bit when it comes to putting up lights and the tree and Christmasy knick-knacks, mostly because it means I need to get my house cleaned up first. And I am always the one who still hasn't taken the tree down by March. It can be just as much fun, however, to decorate you dollhouse for Christmas WITHOUT all the fuss.
|Although I had hoped for a White Christmas, looks like the icicles|
and snow didn't arrive. Also the yard is full of crap and the house could
use a new paint job, but it's cozy and festive inside.
|What's that peeking through the window? Why it's a Christmas tree with|
lights and decorations.
|The first room you get to is the kitchen. We have a linoleum floor made of|
self-adhesive shelf-liner, unpainted walls, and light wood appliances. What
color do you think they should paint the walls?
|Here's a festive spray of tinsel in the milk jug. The Mrs. likes to keep seasonal|
flowers here, but is considering adding a large candy cane to the arrangement.
|Red battery-powered lights, pipe-cleaner tinsel, and resin ornaments|
decorate the tree. These ornaments have been in the family for
about 20 years.
|Looks like Santa has already been here! Brightly colored packages (from|
Dollar Tree), toy soldiers, a wooden train, and a teddy bear. Do you like
the tea set? It has also been in the family for about 20 years.
|This is my favorite chair to just relax in front of the tree. It will be|
the perfect place to watch the kids unwrap their presents.
Since this is your first visit to the house, why don't we take you on the grand tour? It isn't much, but we like it. Let's go upstairs to the den.
|This room is also in need of a coat of paint, but we do have new felt carpet! This|
room has a door leading out to a balcony, but we don't spend much time there
because there's no railing. We've only got a desk in here now, but that's okay.
|Even though we haven't lived here long, we have received a few Christmas cards!|
(Made from holiday address labels on card stock.) We've hung up some festive
prints on the wall and put a small tree in this room.
|A giant Christmas bulb (earring) and a red table runner (felt) decorate the|
|Our little suitcase (matchbox) has been well-traveled. This has also been|
in the family for year, and who knows how long it was around before we
|A snowman print and small holiday plant add a nice touch. Do you like my|
seashell (button) tray? It's a great place for my jewelry.
|Watch your head, the ceiling's rather low in here. We just pulled up the|
carpet and laid down this marble (shelf liner) tile. Do you like the wallpaper?
We thought it gave the bathroom a primitive charm.
|We had the red felt rugs custom made for this room. I see you are admiring|
the trash receptacle (ceramic thimble). It matched the style of the sink, tub,
and toilet so well we just had to have it.
|Thank you! We love the floral print hanging above the tub. (It was|
a bead from a bracelet.)
Well, that's the grand tour. I hope you enjoyed your visit! If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comments or on the Facebook page :)
