Welcome to the 2012 Christmas Tour of Homes
hosted by The Nester
We do love Christmas here and decorating the house is a huge deal!
Since the military moves us around every couple years, decorating the home for Christmas can sometimes be a challenge. Here in Alaska we have rented a cute place in the Valley which we have nicknamed “The Cabin” because it was once a cabin on a hill…all alone 😉 The downsize has been a bit of a struggle, smaller means less walls space for all the decor.
We wrapped garland around the support beam that graces the center of our main living space.
I chose to put our wreath on the pantry door this year so that we could see it and enjoy it every day!
We have a very sturdy curtain rod across the large cabin windows. I wrapped garland around the whole length and accented it with bright red bows!
Our New England Village set is a staple in our Christmas decor. Only half of my village fits on the buffet, but I do love seeing my little village scene.

You have a gorgeous view of the mountains! My daughter has a village she puts out every year too!
I too love the mountain view. I feel very blessed to see it every day. Does she have the mountain addition? I love that feature!! Thank you for stopping by 🙂
That is a breathtaking view. I cant think of a more perfect state for spending Christmas. You have a really great Christmas village. Thanks for stopping by!
We were very excited to finally be stationed in a state with snow 😉 Thank you for the stop back!
Gorgeous photos 🙂 !!!
Thank you so much!
Smaller but lovely… your view is stunning. Your home looks so cheery and happy. ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus surrounded in love.Happy Christmas!:-)Traci
I was too embarrassed to get a shot of our Advent Wreath because of the massive clutter around it. I should get that done quickly because Christ is THE reason we celebrate this holiday.Smaller is actually better. I am working on a series beginning in January on the downsize and encouraging folks to downsize in life. It is scary at first, but really beneficial.Oh, I love your Advent Calender and I was going to point it out in my FF this week. I wish I had found it earlier!!! I would have had one myself 🙂
I love how you put part of the town on the window-sill and that Calvin and Luther have Santa hats. You may not have much space but you get a 10 for creativity. And I love the view with snow.
