Welcome to My Home--Won't you Come In?

My Favorite Christmas Book--TEXAS Night Before Christmas by James Rice.

Twas the night before Christmas

in the cold wintry fog.

Nary a critter was movin',

nor a lone prairie dog.

MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL. I love to ready my home for the holidays and when trying to find a blog topic, I definately did NOT have a quilty topic, so I decided to show you my home decorated in red and green. My family of ten will join my DH and I for a noon meal and my mother, sister and b-i-l will be spending the night on Christmas Eve. We will eat, drink and play games or watch a movie. Cooking will start early on Christmas morning where the traditional Turkey and dressing will be served along with ham, green beans, cheese rolls and potator casserole. Pies are Pumpkin, Pecan, Apple Crumb, and Chess. Cookies of all kinds, and a decorated cake will cause all to not only go into sugar arrest, but will cause our butts to bloom.

My western Santa welcomes visitors on the sideboard. Santa's compass is there and a kiss for everyone. Won't you have one---NO CALORIES, I promise. The doily is one made by my DH's Great Grandmother and is holly and berries. Probably made circa 1890. The saddle bag and rifle holster were used by his Great Grandfather as he rode his horse on the ranch in it's early years.

The family room--How do you like our boot stockings?

The Breakfast area.

Won't you have a cup of coffee and a cookie? I just made them!A stocking from the 70s made by my Grandmother. Granny squares were "the thing".

The stocking will welcome our guests to their bunkhouse style sleeping quarters. Three beds in a row where warmth will be provided by my mother's and my quilts.

My mother also made this Santa in the 1980's out of an old quilt. She actually made one for just about everyone in the family.

Just HHHAAADDD to give you a close up of my Christmas Quilt. It is made of orphan blocks.
A place to hang coats and other clothing in the Bunkhouse room. A couple of stockings provided just in case Santa pops in.

The guest bathroom is typical Texas style. I love our copper sink with emblosed stars. I did not take a picture, but there is jet-tub/shower with a leather look shower curtain. Plenty of towels placed in old refrigerator drawers
