My mom, aunt, cousin, an I went on a Christmas tour yesterday in Mama’s neighborhood. We all agreed that this was the best house tour that we’ve been on ever! The houses were all interesting and very nicely decorated.
We started with this house built in 1940. The interesting thing about this house is that the dining room and living room are on the back side of the house instead of the front side.
This is the back side of the house (taken through a window in the second house we toured). To me, the back of the house is just as pretty as the front.
I almost jumped with joy when the homeowner told me to take as many pictures as I’d like. Mama and Susan are admiring the living room.
This is the other side of the living room.
This pretty secretary is in the large foyer.
The dining room was hard to photograph. Isn’t this buffet beautiful?
Here is a better look at the nativity scene.
This Norfolk Pine in the dining room displayed cross stitched ornaments.
They are cross stitched on paper. I made some ornaments similar to these in the early 90’s. If you were a cross stitcher in the day, you might have made something similar.
Two corners had built-in display areas. I would love to have this feature in my home.
We toured the study and kitchen of this home but I could not get any pictures. You’ll have to trust me that they were pretty.
The homeowner painted this Santa that hung on the powder room wall.
Here a tea towel is used as a Christmas curtain.
On to house two! Susan walks in this neighborhood and has eyed this house for years. She was giddy to finally get to see the inside of it.
The living room extended from back to front on the left side of the house.
he kitchen was remodeled a few years ago.
I loved the porch on the side of this house.
Here’s a blurry shot of the interior of it taken through glass from the living room.
There’s more Christmas inspiration and house peeking to come in another post. I hope you enjoyed the tour!
