A Romantic Christmas

Welcome everyone to the Creative Christmas linky party!  How fun is this to get to inside of everyone’s home at Christmas time. I love going for a drive and looking at the home’s that are already for Christmas. I love seeing their Christmas tree shinning through the front windows, and often wonder what it must look like inside.

That’s just what this Creative Christmas linky party does for me, it lets me see past the front window and into the home. It’s my turn today to share with you my Christmas decor. I really shook my decor up this year and didn’t follow with many of my old traditions and it really was fun for a change. Enjoy the tour!

Welcome to my little nest, the tour starts at the entrance and my wonderful old birdbath filled with evergreens.

  1. Jo, it’s all absolutely breathtaking! I don’t even know where to begin! Love the pink tree in your bedroom. You have so many gorgeous things. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every photo! The little ones are so dear and I just want you to know that I appreciate you joining the party so very much!! Hope it didn’t tucker you all out!!


    • Thank you Jann for the opportunity of being in your Creating Christmas linky party. This is the first year that I didn’t cry decorating the tree. I left most of my memories in my cedar chest and that’s where they will stay. Nice to have a new start. xx Jo


  2. Jo I can honestly say I’ve never seen a Christmas tour with this much eye candy, this much time and thought poured into rooms filled with love. Wow I will return to take in all your Christmas wonderland again and again.


  3. Hi Jo, you have so many beautiful and interesting nooks and crannies filled with wonderful decorations. I especially love the wooden angel with the bit of lace boa and your pink tree. I, too, am enjoying all the Christmas Tours and love to drive around the town peeking in windows. I actually get mad if the lights are off or the curtains are drawn!..Happy Tuesday..Judy


  4. Oh my goodness, I’m quite speechless. Your home is filled to the brim with Christmas love and charm galore. I could honestly feel the spirit of Christmas feel my soul as I took this incredible tour. And those precious grandchildren, what a fabulous post!


    • Trina, you are so sweet. I have had several people come and visit and said that they have never felt a warmth like they have here at Christmas time. I really strive to have the Spirit in all things. This is my way of giving back. Thank you for your kind comment.xx Jo


  5. Eye candy from start to finish! I love all your festive and charming vintage touches. I have a lot of catching up to do with my decorating this year. Thanks so much for sharing your home with Vintage Inspiration Party.


  6. Love all your Christmas touches. Very inspiring. You dress form art is wonderful! Love that tulle net wreath! Merry Christmas! Susan- Susie’sChristmasCottage@blogspot.com


  7. Everything looks so lovely. I can tell you put a lot of thought and time into your decorations. You have some wonderful pieces that say Merry Christmas. The pink tree caught my eye and love the snow sled and the story behind it. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.
    Christmas Blessings
