Part 2 ... Welcome to the party

Karlas Cottage What I love about my Holiday Home party Part 2.

Be sure to visit all the other beautiful homes opened for your viewing pleasure!

I have so much to show you I have broke it down into several posts!

This is part two....

My mum gave us this nativity this year!

It is beautiful, big and very detailed!

We have several nativity sets so we switch every year.

One year I'd love to set them all up, and enjoy each of them as they are each different and unique!

Until the kitties get older and less mischevious I have to be selective on what I display and where I display things!

I love love love all these wonderful vintage ornies....
Steph we do need to get our ornie wreaths made soon!

I think I have enough ornies to make several!

Hubby bought me the larger ornies at a yard sale for 25cents each...

I know..... he is good!

I trained him well! :-)

La Toilette

This is one of my favorite rooms in our home!

Our guest bath!

I love the red walls and Framed Vintage perfume ads

I used a panel of toile to hide the shower stall and add french foof to the room!

This mirror really helps make the room look bigger then it is! Love the red beaded garland across the top, accented with red bulbs, and glass icicles

{yep more icicles}

Lori at Vintage Flair made the sweet santa banner! Thank you Lori I LOVE it!!!

I framed this vintage mirror with an icy wreath.... I wish you could see the detail... it really sparkles!

More sparkle and glam! Love this vintage crystal vase filled with tiny silver ornies! And the tiny ruby glass ashtray makes a sweet candle holder

I found this cute ruby red compote at a tag sale for pennies! Yoohooo......

{it has a heart shaped stem}

Grandmother..... ears to listen, arms to hold, love never ending, heart of gold!

My dear friend Barb gave me this plate for my birthday! I love it!

I hope you enjoyed your visit..... Come back tomorrow to see more of our christmas cottage!

Merry Christmas,

Hugz, Dolly

P.S. part one of our christmas cottage tour is below this one !

I love your house, it is beautiful. Very festive and lots of wonderful ideas. Your guest bath is beautiful, I agree with Julie I would love tohave it as my very own. Your home is warm and welcoming.
I also enjoyed catching up on the cats and the turkeys in the yard. That is a great photo. I'm going back to your home to look again:)
