It is time for BooMama's Christmas Tour of Homes! Thanks for stopping by!

You'll find I love to decorate with snowflakes. They are in every room of my house all year 'round...and I bring out extras for the holidays!

This is the tree taken with a flash...

...and without. Either way, the tree leans a bit.
Also, this was taken last week. Now the tree is surrounded with gifts! Yay!

Here are some decorations from the tree:

This red bird was from James' mother's tree.

This is the Oklahoma Capitol dome, part of a series of Oklahoma Capitol ornaments I collect.

Handmade gingerbread man by Spencer, 2005.

A vintage beaded bell from a garage sale.

I love this Santa scene in a dome. It reminds me of crafts my mom made in the 70s.

I made these. I simply ADORE redwork.

This Santa always hung on my grandmother's tree.

Let's wash up for dinner!

I collect one Lenox Holiday serving dish each year at the after Christmas sales. Last year I got a bonus! Snowflake plates from Yankee Candle that match perfectly!

James bought me this lovely snowflake to hang in the dining room window.

The mantle with a painting of Santa given to me by a neighbor after I admired hers. Isn't that nice? Do you think I should paint the top part of the mantle chocolate brown?

Colin made this plate for Santa's cookies in 2005.

The best advent "calendar" ever. The Jesse Tree provides daily Bible lessons that work from creation to Jesus birth, showing how each event is tied to Jesus. Fantastic.

Just a little kitchen Christmas tree thingamajig.

Merry Christmas!

Thanks so much for coming by, I am so glad you did because I was led here! Lovely home you have, and that dining room! FABULOUS! Love it!

I see you have Michael W. Smith in your side bar, I saw him at the mall last week! In Nordstrom! I simply must tell that story on my blog. I couldn't believe it, but there he was shopping along side my husband in Nordstrom! Star struck, I was!

Love, love, love your Santa ornaments and Santa painting!!! Yes, I love Santa things. :-)

I see you are in OK. My DH and I used to live there from 2004-2005 (in Lawton) till the Army transferred us to Germany. We'd much rather be back in Lawton anyday! But we traveled to OKC quite alot just for fun. Love that place!

Anyway, thank you for taking me for a tour of your home!

Merry Christmas from Dawn in Germany!

Your home is gorgeous and I think chocolate brown on the mantle would be quite rich-looking.

Merry Christmas to all of you. Tell Spencer (and Collin) we need more pictures. Some of us have nieces and nephews that live too far away!

I love that you decorate with snowflakes all the time. Your home is lovely, and I enjoyed the tour, even if I was a bit late. I actually found you on the random button on the blog Oklahoma webring.

I will bookmark your blog and be back after the holidays are over. If you like, please drop in at Miller Manor!
