Come for a Visit to Kansas City ...

I've finally gotten pictures taken and edited and if you'll allow me a few minutes of your time, I'd be happy to give you a wee little tour of my home.

I wish I could leave Christmas up all year long, but come February, my DH starts dropping hints like "Isn't it about time to pack up the Christmas tree??" Anyway, here a few of my favorite pieces ♥

My Sarah Epp Santa and Belsnickles from Chickadee Primitives, Mustard Seed, Hoot-n-Hollar, and One Big Brown Dog! ♥

I love my Cool Jinx /Carol Roll originals! They always make me smile ♥

Notice the awesome sleigh on the top left of my postal desk? That was an unexpected delightful gift from Jen Blomquist, of the Prairie House Primitives !! I was patiently waiting for my log cabin that I bought from her - I knew it would be the perfect compliment to my Bel from Hidden in the Attic (see pics below) and when I opened this HUGE box ... surprise!!! It felt like my birthday and Christmas and 4th of July all rolled into one box ♥ It's a lovely gift, a beautiful gesture from a dear sweet friend, and I will always treasure it!

My Goldi"LooHoo" sign that was the icing on this entryway "cake"!

This red Belsnickle was from Paula and Tammie's awesome blog drawing that I WON!!! Man, that was the luckiest week of my life ♥

Here are my treasures from Paula Buremen for our Holiday Swap on TDIPT... and my log cabin from Jen arrived on Monday - I think they were made to be seen together, dont you?

Treasures from Little*ole*Me and Pywakit Primitives

in the upstairs hallway ♥

Moving into the kitchen - I've got lots of treasures, including Countryfolk Gingers and Beecharmer Santas filled to the brim on a tree!

Treasures from Frowning Francis, with the Trio of singers above, Magpie Nest's sweet little Snowgirl below and Vintage Primitives Santa nestled in a mountain of poinsettia's.

Last on the tour is the family room -

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my humble abode, filled with treasures from so many awesome artists!
You too can be featured in my grand tour - Just mail something that you handcrafted and I will be MOST happy to shine the spotlight on it with glee and glad tidings ♥

"All through the house..." it looks like Christmas! How lovely! Even your kitchen is decorated! What a great idea, after all, the cooks among us tend to spend quite a bit of time in there!

Thanks for the tour -- very festive!

I enjoyed my visit to your blog very much! I laughed when I saw your about me! Are you my missing twin? I think I have report cards that say the exact same thing, even our names are the same! I tried and tried to be quiet in school, but something would come up and.....I wrote a lot of sentences! Now if I had to do it over, I could just cut and paste LOL. Karen
