FALL DECORATING ON STEROIDS............A friends House Tour.

Last year at Christmas I had the pleasure of being invited to the home of
Rose.....The SantaMaker.....of the blog...

Rose no longer Blogs but her Holiday Decorating Skills
certainly deserves to be seen and enjoyed by the
Blogging Community....

So here is my Fall Tour of Rose's beautiful Home....
I was invited to Join Rose and her neighbors for a
"Housewives" style game night....

I had no idea when I got there that Rose decorates her home
For the Four Seasons....
How cool is that....

Fall was everywhere....
She has a wonderful talent for staging....
I felt Like I was stepping into a magazine...

there wasn't a piece of furniture that didn't have a decoration on it...

I can't even imagine how long it takes her to decorate the whole house...


Align Center
She changes everything in the house for all four seasons.....
from the pillows on the sofa to the
Draperies on the windows....
it's amazing...



Her Dining Room is my favorite....
the blue porcelain pieces are everywhere and they
are Gorgeous...

I love how she stacks things on the seat of chairs.....
What a clever idea....
Let's not forget the smells of Fall....







Isn't this a great piece.....
She makes all her own floral arrangements and she also made that circular hanging piece that is
behind the candles....
It is made with paper.....


even the kitchen counter was decorated.....
And now for what a lot of you know Rose is famous for....
Her handmade Santa's.....
They are all for sale and on display in her Living Room....

Rose makes all the clothes......sculpts and paints the faces....
They are spectacular....

The NorthWoods Santa...

The French Santa....

The All American....

If Ralph Lauren designed a Santa this is what he would look like....
I Love the Coat...
They stand a good 2 feet tall....

If anyone would like more info on Rose's Santa's you can send me an e-mail
and I'll pass it along to Rose.....

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE.....
AND HAPPY FALL!!!

I love the features on that pumpkin face on the shelf. Looks like the man in the moon. This can work out well. Rose will have more time to decorate and YOU can blog about it!

PS. Enjoyed touring your house, too. (11/11) Pretty! Can't believe you've gotten it together so well. Wish you'd show some unpacked boxes so I'd feel better.

Next time I expect refreshments. :)

I am blown away by the beauty of her decorations, however I am not shocked by them - I know Rose is a talented gal. I have seen her Santa's and decorations on her blog. She is awesome.

Thanks for the tour. Beautiful!
