The Nester Tour of Homes


This week the Show Us Your life Series is doing something a little different. First of all, it is on Monday instead of Friday. That means that I had to get my photos ready earlier! Also, instead of linking up at Kelly's Korner, we are linking up at The Nester. I love that site. It is beautiful and chock full of great ideas. I can't wait to go "on tour" and see all of the homes.



I decorate with Snow Village Houses. My mother started this when we were little. When I got my own home, she gave me a few of hers to start my own collection. We have picked up some along the way as well. My husband likes the ballparks!

I love the Art institute of Chicago. I had to have that one!
I also like to decorate with photos from Christmases past. I smile every time I get out those pictures of my sweet little butterball babies on Santa's lap.


I even use old pictures in my stocking hangers. I reprinted pictures of Mike and I when we were children with Santa.

Who is that little cutie?

Finally, I display our nutcracker collection in the fireplace. I know that sounds funny, but they look really cute in there. Carter and Lauren each get a new one for Christmas. I may have to put an end to that tradition - we are running out of space!
Thanks for visiting and happy holidays!

It looks so nice. Cozy and pretty. Love the nutcrackers in the fireplace. Would have never known if you hadn't told us.
