Christmas Home Tour

December 15, 2023
Welcome and Merry Christmas!
Today we are going to take a little Christmas Home Tour of our Colorado home.


We purchased this home a little over a year ago. 
The home previously belonged to an elderly couple who lived between Sedona Arizona and Colorado Springs.
Sadly they passed away before they were able to complete many projects-so we basically got the home in the updating mode.


We love all of the light that comes through these West facing windows.
When the day is clear we can see Pikes Peak-the peak stands at 14,216 feet.
We have visited the peak several times and never cease to be amazed at the views and the rugged terrain.


My daughter (Rebecca) gifted me this fabulous deer with gilded antlers.
I have found so many uses for it.
You can find a similiar one from Walmart right here.


We have made some big changes-we took the home from dark to light and bright.
While there are still draperies to be added and who know what else... you know that homes are always evolving.
Seems our home style is currently a blend of mountain cottage, comfy, liveable and simple.
I snagged these cute Christmas pillows from Home Goods awhile ago. 


I love wreaths on windows, doors, armoires, cabinets and even on my Christmas mantle.
I have also made many wreaths of my own.
They can be on inside windows like these in our kitchen or outside too.
If you'd like to do the same-here are some that might suit your style.


Pinecone and twine garland add the finishing touch to my windowsill Christmas scence.
This is my nod to the nostalgic days of Christmas past.


We had a cold front move in yesterday and we got quite a bit of snow.
Very cool outside too!
Wreaths on the outside windows glazed in frothy snow.
(Love that look!)


Flower Cottage on Sunnydell Flower Farm festive and pretty with wreaths on the doors.

I found these bottle brush wreaths from target and the wooden mittens and gingerbread men from Walmart.
Walmart no longer has this line of ornaments but this cute etsy shop does.
They could easily be painted or stained.


My French Armoire is always a showstopper no matter the season
It is solid pine and only weighs a million pounds.
As many times as we have moved I insist on her moving with us.



The light of His love shines brightly and guides us on our darkest days.

Christmas Angel Hummels from so long ago.
Aren't they just so precious.


Always and always and forever.
Jesus is the reason for the season.
Wishing you all a blessed week of preparing your homes and hearts for the birth of our Lord and Savior.

With love,

  1. Everything is so pretty, Jemma. I'm so glad you are getting to live the Colorado life you dreamed of.

  2. What a lovely home you've made there in a year, Jemma! That large room with the tall peaked ceiling is marvelous. I know the view outside the windows must draw everyone to it constantly. You've decorated the house beautifully for Christmas and I do love the use of wreaths inside. I watched a Homeworthy episode on YouTube yesterday and a gentleman had put a wreath inside and outside every single window, buying plain wreaths but decorating them all himself. RH and I watched it together and even he admitted he loved it. It was lovely seeing your Christmas home, Jemma, and reading your message of the true meaning of Christmas. My best to you!

  5. Dearest Sistah, HELLO! This is Anita....Blogger no longer recognizes me here so I have to identify myself. Your home is sumptuous and so cozy! In some ways, your home reminds me our ours. What a view you have of all seasons! We currently have no snow and the temperatures are so warm, it's strange. You know I've got you in my heart now and always.

  6. It's all beautiful, Jemma. Merriest to you! And Happy Home!

  7. Merry Christmas, Jemma! You've certainly made your home a cozy mountain cottage in the short time you've been there!
