Christmas Home Tour Mosaic

At Christmas, all roads lead home.
~ Marjorie Holmes 

*So wanted to participate in Melissa's Christmas Home Tour that, even though my one and only camera croaked, I've gathered previously shared photos into a mosaic. (Either that or I'm just confused about which event I'm entering as I often participate in Mosaic Monday at Little Red House.)

Each photo speaks for itself, I hope. Otherwise, please wander back through the last few weeks to find answers to any questions one might have. (There's a home page just below the gingerbread garland to the right.)

And what's a Christmas Home Tour without something to eat? These two items are going to be a part of the festivities for Christmas 2011. The first is for candy canes, though I will add stick pretzels as well. The second is so cute. I adore easy, pretty and tasty in one nice package.

Please visit the tour at Melissa's The Inspired Room for lots of inspiration!

Thank you for visiting and do have a Merry Christmas!

Love Vee


  1. Your home looks warm and cozy at Christmas time Vee.

    Chocolate covered marshmallow peppermint cute!

    Merry Christmas

  3. Vee, your home looks so pretty and cozy in these photos. What a lovely mosaic of your Christmas decor. Those treats look very yummy. Enjoy this bright sunny day! Hugs, Pamela

  4. What fun ideas for Christmas treats! Have a great week Vee.

  5. Lovely!!! And you are so smart, to figure out a way to doooooooo it. :-) Good luck with the "Saga Of The Busted Cam". Do keep us updated, on this Saga.

    Oh those eats are so cute!!!!! Your Grands will love them. :-)

    Did you watch "OUAT" last night? I did a whole post on it. Along with my regular Mon. post. Put SPOILER ALERTS on top, for those who didn't watch, and don't want to be *spoiled.* :-)

  6. Your home looks beautiful! The lighting gives that cozy, your at home, feel.
    Merry Christmas Vee!

  7. Vee,
    Looks like a wonderful place to come home to!

  8. I'm so sorry about your camera. You must be shopping for a new one. Let us know what you get. I use a very simple Nikon Coolpix 8100 and love it. They've since come out with an 8200, but mine is only a year old so I'm not shopping for a new one. My husband has a big camera with all of the interchangeable lenses, but that's just not convenient for me. I'm forever telling myself that I should learn to use it, but that's as far as I get. I'm not very good at convincing self.

    Your mosaics are always so wonderful and I'm so glad that you helped me learn to make them. Thank you!

    I had no idea that candy canes and marshmallows could be dressed up for the holidays. Everything is so pretty. I've only seen pretzels decorated with white chocolate or almond bark ~ yours are much more festive.

  9. Things look all decked out over there...cozy, warm & welcoming. And thanks for sharing the fun ideas for Christmas treats!

  10. Your home looks so warm, cozy and inviting. I think you should invite all of us up for a couple of days of Maine Christmas! One reason I regret our Marines abandoning Maine was my desire to meet you. But who knows, I might make it back there one day. I must think of going to Japan now! :D
    Your candies are so pretty. I wouldn't eat them, I would just look at them!

  11. What a beautiful cozy Christmas atmosphere you have created, a perfect holiday haven! I am so in love with that old stove top you placed on the hutch.

  12. It really does look so cozy and wonderful. :)

  13. Vee
    Your home looks like a cozy place to enjoy the holidays.
    I, too, am going to try those dipped marshmellows. Maybe I'll wait until you do your first, just to see if they are as easy as they look!
    Enjoy your day!

  14. Very nicely decorated. The treats look like something I am going to have to make. I make the pretzels all the time, but candy canes and the marshmallows sound interesting.

  15. Christmas home tour are such a delight and inspiration. None to go on this year here so was happy to tag along on your tour. My dear husband decorated our home last Friday, the first time he has solo'd on that chore, and I am enjoying his handiwork greatly.

  16. Your candies look too pretty to eat! And your home is so wonderfully cozy and inviting. Pretty! Your mosaic is just perfect.

  17. It all looks so pretty. And I love the fact that you included food!

  18. Oooh, i like those pretzel sticks.
    I remember from previous years that we both have the same nativity set.

  19. Hello sweet friend! I don't know if you remember, but this is kari of kari and kijsa and I just started a new blog! I would love it if you could stop by some time! BTW....those pretzels look absolutely yummy!!!

  20. Oh, those treats look so fun! I want to spend Christmas at your house!

  21. Those are a few really cute ideas.
    I stopped by for a break. I've been cutting out pajamas again...hoping I can do it right this year. Who knows why I keep trying? Ha ha!

  22. I love the mosaic...and the treats are the ideas.

    Nope..don't like wings coming out the backs of people...nor candles coming out the top of heads...or those praying hands that aren't attached to anything...
    I do have the one bust with no arms but, for some reason, she hasn't freaked me out yet.....:)))

  23. Vee, from the mittens hanging in the window to the floating candles your Christmas home looks so warm and cozy!`I know all who visit feel so welcomed. Have fun visiting everyone's home tours. I'm still trying to get through Southern hospitality's mantle party! =) So much fun inspiration to see!

    Have a wonderful week,

  24. Everything looks delightful Vee! I love your tabletop tree!

  25. Your house mosaic is beautiful! I'll just move in for the season, thank you!
    I love those marshmallow, chocolate and peppermint swizzle sticks - they'd be wonderful in hot chocolate....

  26. Sooo warm & welcoming..and the snacks? Perfecto! {that's my version of Spanish..} Muey perfecto!That and "no mas pantalones" from a commercial..

  27. Dear Vee,
    No one does it quite like you :)

    Yours truly,

    Life In Red Shoes

  28. Vee, your house is so lovely, so warm and welcoming...exactly what a home should be!
    (And I thank you for your sweet words of comfort regarding my friend Ann who is "home free." Your words especially mean a lot since I know that your own grief is still very present.)

  29. Lovely and cozy looking home. The decorations are very pretty and festive. The candy canes are cute. Lovely photos! Have a great week and Merry Christmas!

  30. Pretty pretty! Fun ideas too. I can see you are enjoying this wonderful season.

  31. I love the coziness of your home, Vee. Perfectly comfortable and warm...

    I haven't thought of doing that with candy canes before...we usually dip the pretzels, though...hmmmm. Now the question is do I show the kids and plan to do it or not?


  32. I love that mosaic of your Christmas home, Vee! It all looks so warm and welcoming...and I really want those treats! They look delicious!!!
