Holiday Home Tour

On Saturday evening a few friends and I went on a Holiday Home Tour of 5 homes in the San Marco area of Jacksonville, FL.  The very first house that we went to I asked about being able to take photos in the home and I was told no way.  None of the houses allowed it.

So below you will see the unlawful photos that I took - most of them with my cell phone!  I figure the outside photos were allowed, so only the interior photos were illegally gotten.

Please don't tell on me. :o)

This was such a great idea and made quite a statement in the kitchen.

It was a beautiful sunset.

This was such a great idea with the wreaths hanging from old windows.  I have some old windows in my garage - I may actually do this.

This was the house number to one of the featured homes.  It belongs to the ivy covered wall a few photos below.

I thought this was a really cute way to use a white Christmas tree.  The three buttons on the snowman are black Christmas ornaments.

This house had wall to wall pine flooring and the entire place had the smell of pine.  It was pretty cool.  This is the stairway all decked out. 

I would love to have this be the entry to my house!  Oh I loved it.

The last place we visited was the church.  This photo is really grainy but it was such a neat sight with the moon and the stained glass and the clouds.

Thank you for joining me on a mini tour of homes - If I was allowed to photograph inside the houses this post would have had a few hundred photos!  The homes were just gorgeous.

Gorgeous and what a scandalous thing to do. Only wish you would have been able to snag a few more. How amazing.

Just popped over from Unknown Mami's blog.

I love these photos! What creative ideas with the balls in the baking tray, and the Christmas tree dressed like a snowman!

And I love the sky in the church shot. :)

I like the wreathed banisters. But my favorite is the windows over the bed.

Now that sounds like fun. I love the ornaments in the cupcake tin!

I LOVE that stairway!!! It doesn't really say Florida to me but it does scream CHRISTMAS!

Oh, and white tree snowman is a scream.
