2013 Holiday Housewalk Stop #15 ~Have a Very Vintage Christmas!

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us and it's time to deck the halls once again!  Yay!  I love this season the most, don't you?  I am simply delighted to be one of many lovely Christmas homes featured in Jennifer Rizzo's Holiday Housewalk 2013!  Welcome to Day 3 of the tour and I hope you are having a blast!  




You have just dropped in at Stop #15 of the Holiday Housewalk to our home situated in the rolling farmlands of northern Michigan!  We are so glad you are here! 




Want to start this merry parade of homes from the beginning?  Simply click *Here* or on the 'Deck the Halls Holiday Housewalk' button above!




If you hadn't had a chance to pop into Courtney's gorgeous French Country Cottage at Stop #14, you must head over right away for some serious jaw-dropping inspiration!  To go back and check it out, please click on her button above.




Now that you are all caught up, welcome, welcome all!  Thank you for being here!  So without any further introduction, please do come in and enjoy our little Christmas home tour!























































































































My family and I would like to wish you a very Merry and Joyful Christmas!  As you begin to deck your own halls with the untangling of lights, trimming of the tree, and even through the sweeping up of that broken glass ornament (yes, I did drop one!  Oops!) please remember our precious Savior born in the manger, for Jesus is the real reason for all of this.

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.  And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6




Thank you, THANK YOU for coming by!  It has been wonderful having you!  The tour doesn't end here by any means (in fact we haven't yet reached the halfway point!  Yay!)  Next stop in the tour is At the Picket Fence to Vanessa's adorable home in the Pacific Northwest!  Please click *Here* or on her button above to head on over!



Have a Very Vintage Christmas!

This is my second or third time looking through it and I just realized that your mug/bowl collection display "case" was made in Grand Rapids, MI! That's where I'm originally from! How cool! So glad I saw that! :)
