Welcome to our home. I am glad you decided to stop by today. I actually forgot you were coming until I rolled out of bed and stopped by Stephanie's blog for a visit and saw that she had invited you over today! So, I quickly got things together to share my humble abode with you.
We live in Northeast Ohio. There are many jokes around the area that involve the weather. People always say, "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute and it will be different." So last week when I read there was going to be a Christmas Tour of Homes I took advantage of the wintery weather and snapped a photo of our front door. BTW...we rent this house so please excuse the "good & plenty" pink. We didn't put too many decorations outside because they all seemed to clash with the house. Ha ha.
Here is our Christmas Tree...what would a Christmas tour be without seeing the tree right? If you want to take a little detour and get a laugh at my expense, stop by my hubby's blog and look at our Christmas Tree Drama pics.... I also added some pics of a couple ornaments. One that I just think is pretty and the other to entertain my loyal readers with my son's little obsession.
This is a little difficult to see but it is our front window. My parents went to an auction and bought hundreds of this window clings for $2. My kids are having so much fun with them. They don't just put them on once, they "redecorate" all day long. Endless fun.
We are celebrating Christmas with my family today! My parents live out of town and this was the only time we could all get together. So, here are the gifts I have to load up to take to my sister's house today!
My hutch and this giant candle and wreath holder thing I made a long time ago.
This is the archway between the living room and the dining room. I am trying to fill it with Christmas cards. I am still waiting for yours....
I don't have my house all that decorated so I was looking for signs of Christmas to show you... Wrapping paper in my kitchen...hmmm....definately a sign of Christmas.
I started making Sand Art Brownies but I ran out of brown sugar so I had to put the project on hold. I did go get some but I haven't had the time or energy to finish them. If you look closely you can see that I didn't have a lid for the wide mouth jar in the back either so I had to use a paper towel. So typical....
Last but not least.....probably the biggest sign that Christmas is around the corner in the Miller household. My creative area (card making/scrapbooking) is a disaster area. I have been working hard on several projects.... Are you wondering if I made something for you??? I guess you will have to wait and see. In the mean time I think I should use this photo for a Tackle it Tuesday project. ha ha.
Well, thank you so much for stopping by. If I don't see you before the big day...I hope you and your family have a VERY Merry Christmas.
