Christmas 2010 Continued

So glad you could stop back for Christmas in our home. As I said, I didn't decorate like I usually do. Normally I have fresh garland and do a little more around the house but this year just got away from me. I really enjoy decorating for Christmas,
 I think we all do.

Our family room

We added this room when the kids were young and needed a romp room.

I totally stole this idea (with permission) from Carole at Maynard Greenhouse

I love my bears...

One of my favorite finds, old white terracotta angel wings...

Living room, fireplace. Original to the house, Italian marble.

As this week brings us closer to Christmas with all the busyness getting ready for family and friends, let us take a few minutes and enjoy the simple things. 
Reflect on the real meaning of this holiday and think upon Jesus.

Many Blessings

  4. Happy Holidays Rebecca! What a glorious room! Your tree is magnificent and your home is lovely, warm, inviting. The white nativity set by your fireplace is very unique and matches perfectly with your decor. Merry Christmas! Tammy

  5. Oh Rebecca,
    Your home looks perfect and any idea gleaned from Carole is good. She has such a way with things doesn't she ? Your tree is magnificent with so many lights. I don't think that there's anything better than fairy lights at Christmas.
    Wishing you and your family a special and magical time and I look forward to your posts in 2011 XXXX

  6. You have a beautiful home all the candles burning and that gorgeous tree~ wishing you a happy,beautiful Christmas~ Ann

  7. R.E.,
    The Nativity is absolutely splendid, but my favorite...the little photo on the glass topped table.
    Merry Christmas and thank you.

  8. Oh Rebecca! When I seen you had posted more pictures of your house, first thought was I don't know if I can stand it or not!! OMGoodness!! Everything is gorgeous! Wow, Wow, Wow! I would probably pass out if I ever came to visit! I wouldn't know where to look first! Thank you so much for sharing whole room pictures, it makes it so much easier to see how those wonderful vignettes fit in with everything else! I think the angel wings are my favorite! Wonder if those would fit me? lol!

  9. Rebecca I just realized that your home and the one in my dreams are exactly the same!!! Many blessings to you and your family for the holidays.....everything looks just stunning and I love the angel wings!
    Merry Christmas,
    Margaret B

  10. Amen to that! It is sometimes so easy to get wrapped up in the rush of the season and forget the real reason for celebrating. This is a beautiful post and you home is magnificent! Merry Christmas, Connie

  11. Merry Christmas Rebecca! I adore your Nativity set - they are so lovely in front of the fireplace
    God bless your New Year :)

  12. Rebecca I am speechless!!! Going over these two posts of your home has been an amazing experience. I knew it was beautiful...I just didn't know how beautiful. I see you everywhere I look.
    I almost fainted when I saw the angelwings. So lovely.

    I want to wish you and your beautiful family a Merry Christmas dear friend.
    Love you...

    I wanted to send you a card, and was wondering if I could get your address. I know it will be terribly late, but better late than never...they say.

  13. Oh Rebecca -- I adore it all! Your HUGE tree, your HUGE windows, your beautiful nativity scene, the swan on your cement table.....Oh my.....pure bliss! I could totally live in that room alone and be blissfully happy. :)

    Merry Christmas to you!

  14. I just took the tour of your home for Christmas.It was pretty,all creamy white and soft every where.Thats not what lead me to be a new follower though.I could feel the sweet love of Jesus on your site and I can see it in your home.The white wing you own reminds me of a vision I had 13 years ago that I'll never forget.If you would like to read it ,I blogged about it a few weeks ago. Merry Christmas

  15. WOW, I think that's the biggest tree I've ever seen in a house! I LOOOOOOVE the nativity scene in front of the fireplace!

  16. Rebecca,
    I can't even begin to comment on my favorite pictures, because I love every single thing. What a beautiful collection of unusual & beautiful things. The wing, the nativity, the humongous tree, that AWESOME swan...all of it. You have such an a amazing home Rebecca. Thanks for sharing it with us. I hope your Christmas was perfect & that the kids made some very special memories. Lisa

  17. Dear Rebecca,
    this is again a wonderfull tour through your home,--like Lisa, I`m loving the wing,and the nativity- the marple fireplace so wonderfully decorated and beautifull with the lights on ,is specktacular.Everything choosen with love for the original, and beauty in world.
    You are a very dear soul, living your beautifull life, in a home full of love, and lovely things.

  18. Your Christmas decorations make your Home look truly Magical for the Season... I LOVE the Tree... I wish living trees didn't dry out so quickly here in the Southwest Desert, I've had to resign myself to the faux Tree most years. *le sigh* Nothing beats the real deal...
