Christmas Tour of Home, Bloggetyville Style!

I'm excited to be participating in my first Tour of Homes, Bloggetyville Style, hosted by BooMama! Blogger, however, is giving me fits tonight. I've tried to upload the last five pictures twice, but to no avail. So I thought I'd write about the pictures that did upload, publish this post, and then go back and edit and see if it works. **Well, it didn't work, so I'll have to do two posts!

Welcome to my home! I've lived in my townhouse for 11 years, and I love it!

This is the outside view, complete with my Boyds Bear "BELIEVE" flag, Christmas wreath on the front door, and a Warren Kimble snowman small flag.

This is the first "grouping" you see when you come in my home. Normally, at Christmastime, you'd see a live Christmas tree, but I didn't put one up this year! I just didn't have the energy and I'm not hostessing anything this Christmas, so I decided not to. The patchwork snowman is from Home Interiors and he dances AND sings! The santa on the chair is a gift from my best friend, Vickie. And the other decoration is also Home Interiors.

But I do have a Boyds Bear Christmas Tree that lights up. It's one of my favorites.

This is my banister going upstairs. There are white lights on the garland.

This is a grouping over the loveseat. Normally, for Christmas, the picture would be "wrapped" like a Christmas gift. I didn't get around to doing that this year.

My dining room table.

Another Home Interiors "grouping" beside the entertainment center in the living room. Go here to see the top of the entertainment center, decorated for Christmas.

This decoration sits on my living room window sill/my cat's window seat, facing out for folks to see the white lights on the little tree.

I do have a nativity set - the Thomas Kinkade one. When I took it out of the box to put on my entertainment center, there were 3 broken pieces. I was so bummed, I put it back in the box and took it back down to the basement. I even tried to glue the pieces back together with super glue, but it didn't work. =(

Edited: So I mistyped the Title of my post - I forgot the "s" on Home; when I fixed it, the link on BooMama's page didn't work. I switched it back, without the "s," which will drive me nuts to have a misspelling! Hopefully the link will work on BooMama's page, though.
