Merry Christmas from DeDe’s House

I love Christmas and I learned that love from my Mother who also loved Christmas.  But no one I know, and I mean no one, does Christmas like Dede.  Walking into her decorated house is like walking into a Christmas store…but one you want to sit down in and hang out for a while.  It’s amazing in both scale and detail and there is no way I could adequately capture it in pictures.  But I did my best and I thought I would share it with you.   Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you have a lovely day.

There are 9 Christmas trees this year in the house and this one rotates slowly so you can see all the ornaments.


It contained both our North Pole Christmas ornament we sent her


And she turned the bird feeder we bought her into a temporary ornament. She added birds of course!


The fireplace mantel next to the tree


And every available space has small, carefully crafted vignettes

This light-up picture was so cute


And the bucket of snow balls were fun


Plus everyone’s favorite the giggle snowman which sits right next to Denny’s chair. It’s laugh is an actual child’s and is infectious.


None of the rooms get ignored. This really cute set was in on top of the guest toilet


And this little guy is new. When you go into the bathroom, he starts talking to you, which freaked me out a little the first time it happened 🙂


And what’s a master bath without its own Christmas tree?



The master bedroom has a beach themed Christmas tree and the details on this are exquisite

Glass puffer fish ornament

The base of the tree is covered in net and shells

One of my favorite trees was this little guy in the dining room that was in a popcorn bucket. So cute.

There was also this hanging one for the back door


And kitchen specific decorations of course


These Santas are made from gourds. Really neat


Love this little guy


The formal living room has so much I couldn’t capture it all.


And of course its own tree

Love the square snowman

And there is a giant train over the front door

And that is just the downstairs. The steps going to the second floor are full

Leading to my favorite tree which is candy themed

And I asked her if there were any elves left in the city of Columbus lol

Each of the bedrooms has its own tree

And I love this one which is actually half a tree and goes right up against the wall. Never seen anything like this

Very full and just ends at the wall. Great idea for small apartments

If anyone is wondering how she can possibly have all this stuff, after Christmas she hits the 90% off sales.  At those prices all of these things are much more affordable and of course this is a collection built over many years.  When I went to the store to get some presents for my niece and nephew and I wanted to contribute to the collection, and was lucky enough to stumble across an ornament of a camper, which is not something you see every day. It now has a place of pride on the tree in the living room and it made me happy that she liked it so much.

So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our readers.  I didn’t really do her house justice, but I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek.

  1. I understand you have a friend who does solar installs. We have all the panels, parts, etc and just found out our installer will be unavailable for the forseeable future due to personal issues. Would it be possible to get his contact information?
    Thanks, and hope you had a merry Christmas
