A Christmas Tour Repost

A Christmas Tour Of Homes

~This is a re-post from 2 years ago but the homes are so 
lovely that I decided it deserved another appearance!~
Last weekend Bill & I went on a most lovely tour of homes. The Grafton Hills area of Dayton is near downtown. Stately, grand old homes line the streets and what a treat to get inside and see them all dressed in their Christmas finery!

I don't have interior photos of some of the homes to share as the owners asked that their spaces not be online. I hope you enjoy those I can show you!

As always, you may click on any photo and make it larger.

This home is owned by a young couple and is definitely colonial but with a modern twist!

This next house was a lovely arts and crafts style home.
Isn't the little table top tree fashioned from old books adorable?

I mist admit that this next beautiful gem was our favorite.

Each room was a delight to see...

Aren't the hydrangea swags just glorious?

The tree was stunning and filled to the brim with glass ornaments!

I loved this sweet collection of antique tree toppers.

But it was the kitchen and pantry area that made me fall head over heals in love!
This home was originally owned by an art glass maker. His talented handy work
is showcased inb these spaces...

You can see bits and bobs of the glass in these photos but I also wanted you to see
 the charming pantry!
The red and white color scheme was wonderful! I loved it!

Here is a better shot..the glass goes floor to ceiling and literally wraps the pantry and kitchen.

Her counters were honed granite and resembled soapstone. The touches of black
here just made the red and white pop!

This grand home featured over 20 lavishly decorated trees!

Home tours are always such a joy!
This was the first time we have seen the inside of the homes of Grafton Hills and each one
was a joy to visit. There was hot cider, eggnog and rum, hot coffee and Bailey's, cookies, hot appetizers, cakes and so much more waiting on us at each stop. How much sweeter does it get?

Thank you to the neighbors in Grafton Hills for their hospitality!

I hope you enjoyed sharing it with us!

Warmest Christmas Wishes,
Susie Q
