FABBY: My Christmas Home Tour 1, 2012

Hello my sweet friends!

I've missed you guys, since Thanksgiving I've been busy dragging cartons to begin my Christmas 2012 decor around my house and been busy with so many other things with family and so much going on in the month of December, sometimes it turns out to be  too much.. besides the fact I had to buy more space for my pictures, which it was a surprise to me, as I really didn't ignorant, thinking posting my photos would be free for ever, lol! Anyway, I didn't over do my Holiday decorating and didn't even put away most of my regular stuff to create the new vignettes, but it looks very Christmasy just the same... I'm so late to all the parties and visiting you guys, but now I'm ready and can't wait to go see all the gorgeous decorations you've done!
I will also post No.2 Chirstmas Home Tour too, which will include the Nativity Scene and the stay tuned!
The entrance to our home.

A family of carolers welcome you with Christmas songs.



Please enter to the den, as is where we set our Christmas tree next to the fire place, so the mantel is ready as well.

Our Christmas tree started filling up with memories since our first Christmas back in 1975. I love to open the cartons and boxes and start taking out each memorable, old and older ornamnets. I gave my daughters some ornaments, but there's still so many!

The vintage French table in the foyer, which divides the living room and formal dining room.

I decorated my Meissen two tier with some faux fruit and real walnuts. I almost forgot that I also love the porcelain Tyrolean German Santa in the back drop. The round striped ball is also porcelain and there's a fragrant candle inside it. A present from my dear daughter Alexandra.
Here is the foyer and at the back drop the formal dining area and breakfast room.
 I did the living room's coffee table with the antique Virgin Merry that was my Mil's..after all she's going to give birth soon to Baby Jesus. She's probably 100 years old, if not more.
 One end table with one of my fav Christmas piece.. this Italian porcelain toy horse.

The second end table with a German candle holder Santa, which I should have lit time.
The centerpiece in my formal dining table.

The formal buffet with china cabinet. The Christmas tea set was made at our former Ceramic Co.
 The antique Belgium buffet with a little Christmas decor.
 My Mil's antique English buffet done up with my red English transferware dishes and my gold reindeer candle holders, which are one of my fave C'mas items.
 A lunch, green and red Christmas table for four.

I bought four of these cute Holiday dinner plates at our local supermarket for only c/.73 each!
Mother gifted me with this adorable candle lamp for my last birthday, in October.
 I also got four of these cute mugs for $5 the pair.



Thank you so much for coming, I've missed you a lot! May you all have a very Happy Holiday Season.

Thank you lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at your great and fun parties.
