There are more Christmas pictures, ya’ll!
Up first, we’re moving into the Victorian bedroom, where Mither has a tree and garland over the headboard. There was also garland over the mirror on the dresser yet, somehow, I missed the shot of that.
The paint technique she used in here is beautiful as well.
Here’s the small Christmas tree in the sewing room. Festive, no?
I am skipping around a wee bit, (Sort of like I do in real life-really, you should see me…), and here we are at the end of the hall, across from the kitchen. The furry thing is Tootsie, she is heading out the door.
Here we are in the “girl’s room”.
Besides the Christmas tree, there was a lovely garland going across the top of the headboard. It had to go. I was sleeping in there, (being the perfect sister and giving the Victorian room to my brother and SIL), and the damn thing was attacking me in the night and interfering with my slumber. It’s on the floor on the other side of the bed. Try to imagine it.
Can you tell Mither likes to fool with paint? It is even prettier in person.
Here’s a closer up shot of the walls…
Wandering down the hall, here we have Pop’s room gun cabinet. Festive as well.
A rather vintage Miss Martha’s nativity scene…
Now at the end of this hall is Mither and Pop’s room. For some reason the tree looks lit with yellow lights from here, and…
…white lights from here. Now why is that? I didn’t use a flash with either shot and the lights were white in real life. Crazy.
Mither’s room is serene and calm in a sea of blue and white.
This is a lovely, snowy looking little vignette.
That Mither does love her sparkle.
On outside now…
SEE! SNOW! This is the cattle guard in front.
Coy pond. I suspect they’re cold…
I just love this shot…
And this off the back porch at the tank that is looking a little frozen.
I can’t tell you how much fun it was to take pictures of all this snow! And yes, I know it’s not nearly as much as a lot of you get, but for here and on Christmas Day, it was amazing.

I just love these pics! I can see the fun you had!

No one cleans much. As my dear sister in law says, “If they see the dust then you haven’t done a good enough job decorating.” See, there is method to my madness. It is MUCH more fun to decorate than to clean!

Mither and her house need to be featured in a magazine. Country Woman???? That is bea-U-tiful!

Concerning the different appearance of the christmas tree lights in Mither & Pop’s room. The picture with the lights appearing more orange is taken from outside the door to the room. The door frame is seen as very white on the right side of the picture. I suspect the reflected light from the bright door frame shut down the exposure before the interior of the room was fully exposed so the lights are dimmer, therefor more orange. The picture where the lights are white also has more general lighting; note the lighting on the sheets not present in the darker shot. Maybe someone turned on the room lights and got a more realistic exposure. The door frame thing also may explain the ghost of Santa Clause floating over the round table in the right of the frame in the darker picture. I suspect it may be a wreath hanging on the door. Tell Pops he did a great job staying out of Mither’s way while she did this super decorating. It is really something.

Mither and Pop have a beautiful home. Like Hyphen Mama said, she should be featured in a magazine. I love the view from the back porch. Does Mither decorate for other holidays, like Valentine’s Day, Easter, etc? Mither’s decorating could be a regular feature of your blog.

Are you friggin kidding me? Your mother has Christmas trees in the bedrooms? Everything is so beautiful….I fee like a peasant! Every picture makes me think of how all the rooms were so extravagant in Gone With The Wind! Oh, and the coy pond! I think your mother’s place is gorgeous and she should probably open it up like a theme park and charge admission.
