As I have mentioned before, our home is to be on a holiday house tour on December 6th to benefit our local Community Concert Association.  Their advertisement states that "The event is a tour through distinctive and historical area homes beautifully decorated for the holidays."   
Oh my --- I certainly hope our home lives up to the hype!

Consequently, we have been in the Christmas mode for two weeks now.  Plus, we have cleaned, and then cleaned some more.

Anything that doesn't move has been decorated -- even in the mud room where this chicken resides in her coop year round.
Several years ago I admired this hen on the blog, 
Rue Mouffetard; and the next thing I knew, the generous Sue had sent me her sister hen.  Read about Matilda's arrival here
This year, I opened the door and invited Matilda to the Christmas party.
Stay tuned -- I'll be posting some of the more dignified decorations later.  For now, I must get back to the tasks at hand!

I'm joining the following:
A Stroll Thru Life for Inspire Me Tuesday
Ivy and Elephants for What's It Wednesday
Have a Daily Cup for Share Your Cup Thursday
The Charm of Home for Home Sweet Home Friday
Common Ground for Christmas Open House on Dec. 9

I am so envious of your lovely chicken. AND that coop carrier for her. When we left KY had to leave my chicken carrier behind and it killed me, along with wood windows, old doors and lots of other goodies sure could have used when we moved to CO and took up crafting again. If had my way truck and Suburban would have been terribly overloaded. Left fortune of good magazines behind too, lots of Somersets and paper crafting zines, that really hurt too.
Look forward to seeing your decorations and your home, bet it's awesome and people will enjoy tour of your home. Happy week

Matilda is adorable! How sweet of your blog friend. I love that the coop has a bit of holiday cheer. Fun to see it in unexpected places. I know that your home will be fabulous, no worries! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

I like that idea - if it doesn't move decorate it!
