My Christmas Home


Happy Holidays my friends! These past few weeks I have thoroughly enjoyed visting several blogs (many more to go still!) and taking a look inside your Christmas homes. It's like flipping thru one of the finest magazines page by page and viewing all the breathtaking Christmas decorations and stunning details. I just cant stop "Ooohing and Aaahing"!  What I LOVE more than anything is seeing what YOUR cherished Christmas collections are and what you hold most dear and personal. I think we all have a favorite Christmas ornament we love most, or perhaps your stocking you've had since you were a child.

I want to invite you inside my Christmas Home and give you a little tour and share with you all my Christmas lovelies and the little sentimental things past down that I cherish most.

Step thru the front door. Come inside!!!


Please have a cookie and some peppermint tea.


When you first step foot inside my home you will see my staircase bannister is decorated with fresh garland and glittery white poinsettias.


On the staircase wall I have a gorgeous Currier and Ives picture hanging up that was given to me by my parents two years ago.


Immediately to the left is my living room. It's not a real large room but very pretty and cozy. The living room is Victorian inspired in it's decor. It's decorated in colors of cream, pink, gold, and burgundy. 









An old brass birdcage that I decorated and placed a candle inside. It looks so beautiful at night when lit.


I did the same with a larger birdcage.


A few close-up details of the tree ornaments.


When you mosey on down the hall towards the kitchen you'll see a little hall table with a darling little vignette.


 Normally I wouldn't share this room, but it is decorated pretty and festive, so I think I'll give you a peek of my powder room. It's black and white, with pops of red! 


  Next place on my tour is the kitchen. This room is full of nostalgic childhood happiness. I remember loving the big colored light bulbs on the tree when growing up. I wanted the kitchen to be happy and full of color. It is full of vintage santa's, figurines, elves, glowing gingerbread houses, and lots of tinsel!







Mr. Elf on a Shelf. My kids love him!!!!





I ADORE this little embroidery!



My Santa collection.


I love this big Santa face. He hangs high above my kitchen sink.



This is a real fun vignette. I decorated the top of my cupboard in a whimsical kitsch look.



This precious feather angel was a gift given to me by my sweet friend Amy.



These are a few ornaments hanging on my tree that make me smile and fill me with happiness.


These super cute little boxed ornament assemblages were made by the talented Suze of Georgia Peachez. So whimsy and cute!!!


This wooden fox is a vintage hand puppet that my grandfather use to have as a little boy. When I was a little girl my grandparents would decorate their Christmas tree and my Grandpa would hide the fox in the tree for me to try and find.  It became a fun game for me to find the fox. I have many fun memories of searching for him year after year.


This fabulous little risque ornament was lovingly made by my friend Christine


The last room of the house that I really go ALL out and decorate and love more than any other room is my dining room. Which at Christmas time I call the Sugar Plum dining room.










These stunning large mercury ball picks are dated from the 40's/50's and were a huge surprise gift from an amazing and supportive kind friend Jocelyn O'Gorman.  







You can never have enough sparkle and shine at Christmas time!







Recognize this fella? Here he is again…cute pink Santa!


I took a Charlotte Lyons class at Silver Bella and made this little house ornament. The house wasn't quite complete until I scrambled thru my supply tote bag and found Heather's  business card with this beautiful ballerina's image. It truly fits the "Sugar Plum" theme. 

This pretty pink tree I call the "Roses & Tiara's" tree. I've adorned it with white roses, seam bind bows, and little blingy tiara. (HINT….they are actually napkin rings that I bought at Hobby Lobby in the wedding section, and thought they would look super cute on the tree!)  



A cute little blue flocked reindeer that I made now has a new home at Bunny Rose Cottage.


This is another decorative spot in my dining room.


One of my favorite new Christmas displays is this sugary Nativity scene that was created by my dear friend Analise



I couldn't resist purchasing this adorable Christmas collage from the equally adorable Amy!  


Every year I display this delicate vintage tulle tree in the middle of my dining table. This is one of my favorite Christmas decorations.



Lastly, the main thing that showcases my dining room so beautifully is my tree. It's adorned top to bottom full of sparkling & glittery ornaments.








I made these darling little Christmas ornaments in Pam Garrisons "Lineage of Love" class. I actually didn't finish my project in class. :(  The class was not about making ornaments, but more of a banner. So, I turned these cuties into an ornament banner for the tree.

Little girls popping out of the Christmas present.


"Oooh Christmas tree….Oooh Christmas tree.."


Thank you so much for stopping by to tour my Christmas home. I hope you enjoyed it!   


This will be my last post until after Christmas. Im looking forward to spending time with my children, family, and friends. I can only imagine the amount of Christmas wrapping paper that will be covered all over my floors, and the sounds of giggling, and toys blarring thru the house! Pure JOY!  

From my family to your family I want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!!!



Christmas Love & Blessings!

Hi Jenn,
What glitter and sugar plum fairy magic! I love it all! I’m been waiting and hoping that you would do a Christmas home tour. I have one of your Santas! The one on the left in your photo of Santas is just like the one passed down from my Mom (I have mine in my Santa Mantel Photo in my blog). And I have never seen a light blue reindeer – that was lovely! And the blue/white candy canes in the beautiful blue vase – unbelievable. You know I love your bunny wall paper in your kitchen! Finally the Santa table cloth – that’s so neat! The trees…all those beautiful ornaments..your home is truly a dream come true. And, of course, your children are adorable! Merry Christmas from our home to your home!

Gorgeous tour of your home Jenn! I just love it! Merry Christmas from Down Under! Suzanne XX

I’m sitting here desperately trying to figure out how I am going to make a vintage tulle tree like the one on your dining room table. I must have one sitting on my dining table before Christmas dinner. It is simply the cat’s pajamas.
I have tons of tulle sitting in my craft room just waiting to become a tree….wish me luck. LOL

Where do I begin? It’s so fabulous, it deserves to be on the pages of a magazine! WOW. You must spend a lot of time getting it all put together. The sugar plum dining room was so cool….the tulle tree! Oh goodness! Thanks for sharing, it was like a little magical treat to see it all! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Jeni Carlson

Your home is so so pretty. Just like you. Thanks for sharing. I love that you have Christmas all throughout your home. I would love to know where you find those adorable pink and white candy canes.
Happy holidays to you and your family!

wow. Your home is simply breathtaking. I love your dining room, it is every girls’ dream! I have tiaras on my trees too, I agree,they add a wonderful touch. I’ve got a pair of pointe shoes on one of the trees too,and think it’s my favourite touch. :o) Thank you so much for showing your home, it is beautiful. You’ve put a lot of hard work into making it perfect.
Wishing you and your family a very happy Christmas,and all the best for 2010.
Merry Christmas! :o) x

Your home looks beautiful.
Lovin your kitchen!
That vintage pink tulle tree…gasp! What a treasure.
How lucky you are to be celebrating with tiny ones and all their excitement and awe.
Mine are fence sitters on Santa this year~to believe or not!…luckily they haven’t jumped off quite yet and still believe (as long as their friends are not around)!
Merry Christmas Sweet Jenn and have a wonderful New Years too!

Wishing you and your sweet family a Merry Christmas! xoxox

Your killing me over here!!!! Your home looks Gorgeous!!! I love every little detail.. From the garlands, trees, ornaments, you name I love it… They need to seriously devote a whole magazine spread to you.. It should be titled “Jenn’s Magical Christmas Home!” Well, I guess they can pick a better name although that might be hard, because there are no words to describe your Winter Wonderland…
Have a Very Merry Christmas!!!!

Thank you so very much for the cup of peppermint tea and the yummy cookie. I feel like I have just had the most delicious break with my favorite Victorian Home magazine and toured your most amazing home. Yes, my favorite is your Sugar Plum dining room. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Taking the tour of your beautifully decorated home was like opening a fabulous present. Thank you! Have a wonderfully, blessed Christmas!

Hi Jenn!
I felt like I just looked at a special Christmas book-thanks for showing us your amazing home and Christmas decor. I love how you turn found items into something amazing and one-of-a-kind. Have a lovely Christmas!
PS-Jess did an amazing job with her home too!

I just loved your tour of your more than beautiful home. So lovely and decorated beyond words. Thank you for sharing and may you and your loved ones have the Merriest of Christmas’s.

Oh my gosh, Jenn! It’s all so gorgeous and festive! Would have loved to have seen it in person, but you did a great job bringing it to life on your blog. Amazing!
I’m lovin’ the tulle tree!!!
Merry Christmas!!!

As always, your house looks stunning for the holidays. I adore the pink Santa Claus. Oh my! I’ve never seen him before. He looks like cotton candy. And the beautiful tulle tree on your dining room table.
I hope you all have a very wonderful holiday season and there are lots of smiles, giggles, and laughter throughout your home.
xo Cath

Jenn..have a Happy New Year..thanks for your outrageous spirit and kindness You are a gem!! xoxoxo Jennifer

So breathtaking and beautiful. Thank you for sharing your Christmas eye candy. It brought back many happy childhood memories of Christmas at my grandmother’s house.

Jenn~ my computer crashed over the Christmas holiday. So, once I got back up and running I had to head back to this post to tell you how stunning your home is with all the Christmas decorations…from the Santa’s, to the tulle and lace trimmings. I can’t imagine how long it takes you to set up each vignette! The minute you invite us in passed the threshold it becomes a winter wonderland of Christmas magic. It’s definitely a home that will be filled with cherished memories for your family and friends.
Sweet wishes,


Your home is truly a holiday wonderland. I just can’t get over the tab reading Sweet Eye Candy Creations. My last name is pronounced Sweet Eye. Have a beautiful 2010!

Your home is fantastic. I thought your place is the place for beautiful fairies.
Deirdre G

Really really love your Christmas decoratio. You are awesome and very creative in wonderfula and in a unique way. Love your blog.

love this is my dream..thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures.

Eleana Gastón

I love your home, it’s so beautiful, I’m from Lima-Peru,South America, Inca’s Land, My name is Eleana Gastón, I entry to your page because I was looking christmas images for my digital frame and founded your page.
Merry Christmas!

I love it! Christmas decorations is the fact that is can prepare you for Christmas in its entirety. It can help you plan your family life throughout the holiday season and essentially opens the doors for activities and themes that are not available at any other time of the year.

NOw you have to tell me something here, do you get all those goodies in a short time or it takes years. How do you go about it, one room at a time, or you just have a certain eye pallette that you find something and wham add it to a special place, or you have a special place and then you go out hunting. I love your home. I have gone modern to fit in with this huge 5 level thing I am living in, but my heart is a romantic victorian in lace. I long for the soft slip covered and the lace etc., I want to do a romantic thing with this home but need someone with a keen eye to help. So anyway, what is the colour of those pink crimson red balls on that tree…. just so lovely.

I was lucky to find this web site. What a splendid blog! I love how appointed each of the entries are. They are well balanced, both cognitive and amusing, and the pictures are cool too.

Hello – Your photos are incredible! My company produces the national magazine for Royal LePage Canada and I would love to feature your work in our winter 2015 issue. It will be a Christmas themed issue. Wondering if there is a moment to speak on the phone?

My direct line is 250-947-5207
