2010 Christmas Tour of Homes

Welcome to the 2010 Christmas Tour of Homes! I'm so glad you stopped by.  I don't know about you, but I am ready to kick back and enjoy the days to come.  Whether or not things are checked off my to-do list, there comes a time when you just have to say, "no more".  Say it with me, no more.  El fine.  No mas.  There, I feel better already.

I have just a few pictures to share, because I'm pretty sure you have had your fill of cottage and vine pictures, and besides, this is your time.  






To Participate:

1. Make sure you post a permalink of your post and not just a link to your main blog page.
2. Your post should contain Christmas & holiday decor.
3. Please add my button to your post or a simple link on your post to my blog will do.
4.  If you don't have a blog, but have photos you would like to share, feel free to do so on facebook.  I would love for everyone to have the chance to participate.

Cottage and Vine 
5. Not required, but please be kind and visit some of the other links.

Let's party!

  8. Rene, we are not tired of seeing your stuff you have barely shown anything. You must be sick of mine since that is all I have shown lately. Your home looks beautiful for the holidays and I love the box with the mason jars. Thanks for throwing this party.

  11. Rene; I can't believe I never saw your blog until now - lovely! Love those canning jars - they appear to have a rainbow effect, is that just the photo or is that for real? I'm a new follower and have joined in on your party.

    If you get a chance, maybe you can stop by my blog and consider following me back ;)

  14. Oh, Rene. You are so talented. The couch photo with the reindeer behind looks like it is straight from a magazine. I love the use of all the candles, especially in the mason jars. What a beautiful setting to enjoy the week. Excited to tour the other homes. So much fun.

  17. Thanks for stopping by everybody! Michelle, the jars aren't rainbow in real life. Some are blue and some are clear. Maybe the way they reflect each other makes them appear to have a rainbow finish.

  23. Hi Rene, I see your linky party has been a huge success--which is no surprise! Thx for your comments today! No, I don't have a basket for my mail--and it ends up on the floor too, which I guess doesn't bother me. It'd bother me more I think if I had to move my basket every time I wanted to open the door!

    days to get things
    done so YES, no mas
    for me, either!!
    Love your Christmas
    decor....your stockings
    and entry, too.

  27. I love seeing your photos. Your home is exquisite! It is classy and with such a touch of elegance. You have a way with decorating, Rene. I adore your stockings that you made and that reindeer with the whte bow. We don't have our mantle above the fireplace finished this year. Hopefully, by next Christams so I can hang the stockings. You look to be ready for Christmas!
