I met up with Nancy of Ella Elaine on Sunday to go to Smitten's Open House (which I'll talk more about in another post) and then she so kindly offered me the opportunity to go to the McKinney Home Tour to see Seema's House. Seema lives in The Nayak home, which is a Victorian style with Neo-Classical elements that was built in 1906. Her home features three diagonal fireplaces and four original stained glass windows and GET THIS, it's for sale. Once you see the pictures you are going to want to live in this home, it's just gorgeous inside and out.
I was just in awe at all the pretty vignette's that Seema had. Her house was so beautifully displayed!! She said at one time she was an antique dealer, you can tell, she has a great eye for displays and finding wonderful things.
To continue with my posts on the different types of Christmas decorating, this one could have been titled Vintage Christmas Decorating. There were wonderful old things piled within containers and at every turn your eye caught something wonderful. While she may have had a lot of things, it was tastefully displayed. I just loved it all.
Look at this with the urns, dress form, and it all goes together so beautifully:
Look at all this, study this picture, I am just in awe at all the great things that are in this vignette.
Here's a close up view:
Who would have thought that an old sweeper would be so pretty:

And would you believe this is in the dining room too:
I love all these colors.
This cute birdbath was next to the display case:
So simple and so cute.

As you moved into the living area was this:
Wow, I could stare it for a while.

I really liked these things:
Nancy had these cute wreaths in her booth at the Antique Company Mall:
There may still be some left.
As you head outside on the side porch were these cute things:
The wreath was made out of corn husks.
Another view of her porch:
This believe it or not was outside on her porch:
Hope you enjoyed the tour of Seema's home:
Some of the pictures I borrowed from Nancy's blog since my camera battery decided to die, so please hop over and check out her blog too. And, if you are looking for the Jeanne d'Arc Living Issue, she said she has a couple of copies left, so you might contact her on her blog for this as well.
I'll be doing a post on Smitten later this week so please stay tuned. Happy Wednesday and if you check out Kathleen's blog you'll be inspired by the other White Wednesday participants.
