The holidays are upon us, I love Christmas, especially seeing it through my children’s eyes. I look forward to decorating our home inside and out every year. This year will be different, a few weeks ago a leak in our kitchen wreaked havoc on our lives that will change the way we celebrate this season. Our entire kitchen and basement has to be demoed and all of our belongings are being packed up and put in storage.
It will be a long process. We live in a rural location so there are no hotels nearby. The insurance company paid for a travel trailer to be put on site for us to live while our house is being repaired. This means that we will not be able to decorate the way we usually do. I want to make the holiday season special for my kids but most of my decorations have been packed and brought to a location to be cleaned. Anyway, we are making the best of things and that is why when I was approached with the opportunity to work with Boscov’s on their holiday home tour, it was a big blessing.
Recently, we all headed off to Boscov’s and rode the escalator straight up to the Holiday Shop. My kids’ eyes were as wide as my husband’s and mine. There were so many beautifully decorated trees and displays.
A member of the helpful staffed named Linda told me she decorated all the trees and many of the displays. There were indoor decorations, outdoor decorations, ornaments, village houses and so much more. The first thing that caught our eye was the Santa in Sleigh with Reindeer outdoor display.
I laughed because it was the same one from the movie Christmas Vacation. My husband said it was a great idea since we can still decorate the outside of our home. We also picked up a vintage looking outdoor lighted Snowman with Pipe.
I found some cute little cardinal and bluebird shelf sitters and a “Have Faith” block sculpture with a cardinal that coordinated. Cardinals are very special for me so I knew these were going home with me.
Then I found 2 Annalee dolls I loved, a mouse ornament and a mouse standing figure.
Next, I picked up a tablecloth and headed off to find a ceramic tree that is reminiscent of the vintage kind I remember as a kid. I had to decide between green and white and went with the white.The pictures don’t do it justice. I also picked up a beautiful Lenox silver-plated Christmas tree ornament and a train for our village.
They had so many nice ornaments, we picked out several that we really liked for our tree.
Soon we were ready to go and load our purchases in the car.
Here is a video of my Boscov’s haul:
The tree makes a cute little display with the other ornaments in the travel trailer.
I did get to at least try my tablecloth on my kitchen table before they took it away. I love the vintage look of this tablecloth.
The train is so detailed and will look awesome when we add a few of our village houses. Our village will be smaller this year but it will still be festive.
The outdoor decorations are very nice and with the new fallen snow they look just fabulous.
The kids really love everything and I guess this all goes to show us that home is where the heart is, especially at Christmas!
