Welcome to Erika's Holiday Home 2011
This year, she's used lyrics from "Joy to The World" throughout her home, beginning with the front door.
Welcome to the library. Here she's taken silhouettes of our favorite authors and used them to trim a beautiful chandelier. Here you can see Charles Dickens and Jane Austen, and Charlotte Bronte is in the picture above this one.
*She will be posting on this project soon*
Here's a fun tip: She used an old Ideals Christmas book, and cut out the pictures to fill picture frames around the house. Notice them below in the Living Room pictures as well.
The Pub sign tells you you are headed for the Kitchen...
Dressed up chandelier and Vintage Santa Plaques on the dining chairs...
Through the dining room to the Family Room...
I can't tell you how much this picture captures the feeling in this home, and if you could look out of it, you would oversee an entire valley and silver lake. It's an incomparable view.
In the Living Room, Nativity art fills the tables and picture frames.
Upstairs, a small village with vintage figurines keeps the Family Room playful
I wish you could each walk through this lovely home and feel the warmth of Christmas that is always present. I only wish I could be there to enjoy it too. I guess we will all just have to settle for this blog.
