Holiday Homes Tour 2010!!!

Hi there!!  This is my 2nd year participating in Jen on the Edge’s Holiday Homes Tour.  So welcome!!

Dont you love how HUGE our wreath is? It’s like they pumped steroids into them!  The reindeer belong to our landlords, but they go above our door so they make the picture. 
Come inside!

Our cards are displayed all around the apartment… and you’ll see Hanukkah and Christmas decorations mixed in together.


And let’s not forget the all important Hanukkah Bear!!

I know it’s spelled Chanukah on the bear, I like the other spelling better.

There are seriously NO good Hanukkah decorations out there. It’s sad really. I make do with what I can find. Moving on, here is our tree!


Every year Dave and I get each other a new ornament for the tree.

My reindeer ornament from Dave, our first married Christmas ornament, and the guitar ornament I got for Dave.

We also try to collect an ornament from any place that we travel to. Here are some from our Honeymoon, and New Orleans.

Amsterdam, Paris and New Orleans

Hope you enjoyed my tour! We don’t have much room to decorate, but I try to make do with what we have.

Happy Holidays!

    I aspire to be like you, Jewish-woman-married-to-a-non-Jewish-man. I can't wait to decorate for Christmas when I'm no longer living with other Jews…

  2. we've started collecting ornaments from our trips, too. we have two new ones this year – boston and the grand canyon. nice decorations!

  3. Jen on the Edge says

    I love it all — so festive! We've been collecting ornaments from our travels and elsewhere our entire marriage, which makes unpacking them every year a trip down Memory Lane.

    BTW, LOVE your card this year!

  4. I think it looks fantabulous. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Badness Jones says

  6. your place looks so darn cute! and i love that you collect ornaments from places traveled, that is just so fun!

  7. Jenn @ Juggling Life says

    I love to get an ornament every time we take a trip, too. Decorating the tree becomes a trip down memory lane.

    Maybe you should design your own line of Hanukkah ornaments and make bundles of money?!

  8. Beautiful decorations!

    I love your tree and I LOVE that you and Dave have the same ornament tradition Jen and I do!!!

  9. love the decor! And its so fun busting out the 'first christmas' ornaments for many years to come after that ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Love it! So festive ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the ornaments ๐Ÿ™‚ Adam and I started that last year – our families got us some "first christmas" ones and we collect Capitol ornaments.
