Simply Beautiful

It was enjoyable to take the tour through this home. I have a love for its simplistic beauty. Each tree was beautifully decorated by the family of Dan and Jean Schreiter and their son James.

The entrance was very welcoming. Look at the old time typewriter that was out for display, with a letter started to good old Santa Claus!

I lost count and don't even think I took photos of all the cute trees in the Schreiter home. I remembered that they also had a tree on the back porch that had shiny apples on it. But the photos here show the varied looks in all the trees. The close up shows the punched tin reflectors that go over the white lights. They were authentically vintage and not a reproduction.

The blue and white dishes are something I collect too. I have a very large set of Currier and Ives dinnerware and use them daily. It was fun to see the dining room tree decorated in such a beautiful way with gold, white, and blue.
