STILL AUDITIONING

I’m still auditioning my house for the next Griswold Christmas movie.  I apologize for the number of photos in this post, but if my house has a shot at getting this movie, the directors have to see the volume and all the glory tackiness of our Christmas décor.  I also apologize for the photo quality.  For some reason (I can’t imagine why), my camera battery began to die!

Aren’t you glad the camera battery died before I got to the guest rooms?  I’m not sure if I’ll get my Christmas tablescapes posted before Christmas.  (I have GOT to start cooking now!)  If I don’t post before Christmas, I want to wish all of my wonderful blogging buddies a beautiful Christmas and New Year!  Thank you for your visits to my blog.

Wow, you certainly have put a lot of work into the decorating. I think it all looks wonderful. I love how festive everything looks. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful photos.

Fantabulous! You must not have slept a wink since Thanksgiving! I think after New Year's you'll need a "long Winter's nap!"

Oh my word Laurie, I can't even imagine. Everything is totally gorgeous. How in the world do you find the time to put this all out, and it is stunning. Wow. Thanks ton for the tour. Hugs, Marty

Lol, well all I can say is the Griswold's would be one of the most blessed families around to spend their Christmas in your beautiful, beautiful home!!!! You are simply amazing! Love ya, Cindy

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Your decorations are absolutely beautiful. I will have to share this post on one of mine. I just don't have the energy this year.
Still working on my tree!! I especially love your tree on the table in front of the hutch.
Merry Christmas!

Dear Laurie,
It's a good thing I dont live next door..I would be making a house call with the largest purse I could find..I would 'borrow' many items I see among all your treasures hoping you would'nt miss a thing! Merry Christmas back to you! May you have the best holiday ever!
Enjoy the time....

Tardevil said...

I just love it. You make my collection look small, which means mine 'isn't there yet!' I LOVE all the vintage things you showed. You must be worn out from putting it all out. You should open your home up and charge admission! Then again, I'd be afraid something would get stolen! ;o) I hope you and your family have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

Carol said...

Laurie,
Great tour! It's all beautiful.

Sue said...

When did you start all of this Laurie? It must have take forever to put it all in place and make it good gorgeous!! I'm sure everyone who sees this is just in awe. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing this, my friend. Sending you Merry Christmas wishes, Sue

Sarah said...

Laurie, you must be exhausted after you've completed putting everything in its place. Fun to see it all! I like the way you add holiday pieces in among your books and things. Happy Holidays! ~ Sarah

Carol said...

I always enjoy seeing your beautiful Christmas decorating! I can see you put a lot of time and love into your displays. I'm sure everyone who visits you home loves it, especially your grandchildren.

Merry Christmas,

Enjoyed seeing all your pretty and festive decor. I did very little decorating this year, but have really enjoyed visiting around and seeing what everyone else has done.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Holy Shmoley Laurie!
I have to scoop my mouth off of the floor now!
It's all so grand and glorious!
Not one tacky thing, just a lot of hard work and creativity!
Merry Christmas my friend,
Cindy

Kathleen said...

I think you will get a call back!
You are an inspiration!
Merry Christmas to you and your dear family, Laurie!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

I always enjoy seeing your home at Christmas Laurie!

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Palomasea said...

Dear Laurie,

All I see is a lot of beauty, and I'll say it again, so much love!!!
I can only imagine when guests come to your home how enthralled they are by your collections, and I'm sure, by your hospitality! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing home...my absolute favorites are the Christmas village, Pinocchio tablecloth..hee,
the Nutcrackers, and that wonderful poem...just beautiful.
Have a joyful, healthy, happy Christmas!
Many blessings,

So pretty and festive, Laurie! Love the cage doll/cloche! Merry Christmas!...hugs...Debbie

Debbie said...

no! I am not glad your battery died. I was having a ball on my tour. I just loved every little detail and scrolled slowly so as not to miss one. I hope you give tours in real life because it's so wonderful that people would love to see it.

When I was little, there was a Christmas shop near our home. We used to go every year, and I thought it was like the North Pole or some kind of enchanted land. Your home reminds me of that place. I love it all.

Ldy ~~ Dy said...

Wow! and Wow! I hope you have elves helping you in your decorations!! Enjoy looking at it all! Merry Christmas!

Oh Laurie.... you are hilarious.......I didn't even know they're making a new movie... I just watched Christmas Vacation tonite... for the second time this season... :-) Gosh, that's a classic.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas...

I love your home so fully decorated for Christmas, LAurie. The Christmas Village is so magnificent and magcal. I love your trees also. Merry Christmas! Hope you are enjoying it with all the family...Christine

Mary Ann said...

I can't even begin to imagine how long it took you to do this. I find it seems to take longer to put things away "right." It is all beautiful and I know your family enjoys it.
