Susie's Christmas House

Hello dear friends!  Is it cold, wet, and dreary where you are?  It certainly is here.  Brrr!
I know you're all ready to be done with Christmas, but today I'm sharing the home of my mom's good friend and neighbor, Susie.  I promised to photograph her house in all its Christmas glory, but I simply did not have time to get over there before Christmas, or even before New Year's Day.  Last Monday, I visited my mom and we checked out Susie's Christmas home.  I actually did another Christmas post about this house when my blog was still very new, back in December 2012.  You can read that Here and Part 2 Here.

This is the foyer -- I love that mirror. 
I showed this in the post back in 2012; it's a platform "tree" made especially to display Susie's Dept. 56 village.  She said it took her five hours just to set this up.
A few close-ups, 
From the foyer, you turn left into the dining room.  Susie has done a frosty, glittery tablescape for Christmas.
I like these etched glass salad plates, and the gold and white napkins are very elegant.
I thought this tiered serving piece was gorgeous!
These are more shots of the dining room.
The kitchen has a much more playful, light-hearted look.
A cooking-themed tree with gingerbread men and other delights...
and cute chili pepper lights.  ;)
That's all for this post.  I'll show the rest of Susie's house in another post.  Speaking of Christmas decorations, I'm still taking mine down and putting them away.  Sigh.  I wanted to be further along on that by now, but I got a mild cold after New Year's, and it threw me off schedule.
I hope you're all getting off to a good start for 2019; I'm hoping for good things this year.  What are your plans for the month of January?  Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day!


  1. Oh Denise...this was just WONDERFUL! Thank you and Susie too for sharing her lovely home! Just beautiful holiday decor!!!

  2. These are beautiful pictures, and I know there are many more to come. Love you, Mom

  3. Oh wow, it was stunning ! I love it all, but that tree with tiers decorated with the Xmas village is awesome !!
    I'm pinning for inspiration next year. Came from Inspire Me Tuesday and my post is the after Xmas decor, lol..

  4. Wonderful look the wreaths at the windows. I had to go back to see if I was telling the truth when I say that I have never seen a plarform tree for Christmas villages. (I am telling the truth as I had not visited the former tour.) And the cardinals are wonderful! If they were mine, they’d be up all winter. What a lot of work this level of decorating demands!

  5. Oh my word, what a beautifully decorated home, Denise! The platform tree is so unusual and what a great idea for Susie's display. I loved the darling kitchen tree and all the kitchen decor. The home looks beautiful on the outside as well. Thanks for sharing with us.

  6. Denise, thanks for showing Susie's Christmas House. So beautiful. She has a wonderful collection of Dept. 56. I love the tree they are on. The kitchen tree looks so bright and cheerful..Happy Wednesday..Judy
