A Family Get Together - Home Tour

Hello everyone!

Last weekend, I went to a family get together at my husband's cousin's house.  We had a lot of fun and ate some homemade BBQ!  Yum!  His cousin's name is Kim and she had her house all decked out for Christmas.  I thought I'd show you around.


Her siding is grey (not blue like it looks here).  Some of my pictures didn't turn out as well as I had hoped.  I was taking them quickly and there were a lot of people around.  So pardon my poor picture quality.

Come on in!


Isn't her front door pretty?

Here, her banister is all decked out with a beautiful garland and bows.


Just inside the foyer is this lovely secretary.


She has three Christmas trees in her house!  One of them is in her dining room off the foyer. 


This is her feminine, elegant tree.

Take a look at all the yummy desserts on her sideboard too.


Let's go into the kitchen now.

Look at this cute tree decorated in Coca-Cola ornaments.  Her husband works for Coke, so it was only appropriate to have a tree like that somewhere in her house.


She had this beautiful poinsettia arrangement on the center of her kitchen table.


This pretty plate rack hangs on the wall beside her table. Love that red transferware!


Look at this pretty black and white toile window treatment above the kitchen sink too.


And have you ever seen a prettier door leading into the garage from the kitchen before?


This was a cute display set up on her hutch cabinet.


You're probably wondering where all the good food is.  It's over on the counters.  We served buffet style!


This is just a smidgen of what was served.  It was all so good.

In the family room, she has yet another tree!


This was a live tree too.  Isn't the shape perfect?  This one is filled with handmade ornaments from the kids and keepsake ornaments from over the years.  Very cute!

The mantel was so pretty too.  I hate that my photo didn't turn out well, but I wanted to show it anyway.


She had a lot of candies and cookies out for everyone to enjoy too.


And last, but not least, was her pretty powder room. 


Do you see that glass block with lights in it on the counter?  That is such a cute idea.  It looks like a present all lit up.

Hope you enjoyed the tour.  She lives in Newnan, GA and we visit her about twice a year.  She has a beautiful pavilion out back with a fireplace that I forgot to get a picture of.  Darn!  Maybe next time. 

Thanks for stopping by!
