Christmas Home Tour Continued at Sandra's

Sandra is a single parent of four children, now grown, and has three beautiful granddaughters.  She is a care giver to her Mother, she works full time and in this process she designed and built and remodeled her bungalow cottage styled house.  I'm privileged to be surrounded by strong women.  She loves to collect and fill her home with treasures.

The minute you walk through the door of Sandra's home you  see her collections.  The antique ruby glass lamp gives off a warm glow to her collection of Christmas girls and holly berry dishes.  The reflection in the mirror shows her niche with her Christmas girl sisters and her choir boys, which she has named.  Her jadite cake stand and glass dome give her Christmas girl a prominent place in this vignette.

I wanted you to see up close Sandra's Christmas Girl Sisters

Sandra's kitchen island is large and gives ample room for displaying her collection of candy jars and books as well as hosting food for a buffet.

I loved this snowman she placed by one of her kitchen sinks.

This vintage box "Granny's Baked Goods" is surrounded by yummy goodies.

Sandra's vintage tablecloth covers her kitchen table.

Thank you Sandi for sharing your beautiful home and treasures.
