What can participants expect to see at your home on the tour?
Our home has a modern floor plan but we’re very country so that is the way we furnish and decorate.
A fun festive wonderland, a home filled with holiday visuals that will surely put you in the holiday mood.
From thematic Christmas trees to an ambiance set with lights, my home will give guests the sense of going back to a “Rockwell Christmas”.
We moved our house in from a farm near Hampden. It was empty for nine years and now has the sounds of a family again.
Stained glass, hardwood floors, Barbie room and a depressed glass collection.
A lot of emphasis on family history. Many branches of our family homesteaded in Cavalier County so a lot of memorabilia has been handed down.
Why did you decide to place your home on the tour?
We were asked to be on the tour by a chamber member. We figured this would give us a prime opportunity to let people see our house and home photography studio.
We completely support our community’s organizations and like to help when we can.
We enjoy decorating for Christmas and wanted to share our home.
When Roxanne Felch McLean owned the home, she had it on this tour.
The holiday season is a special time and we enjoy having guests at our home. It is also a way to support two great organizations in our community.
Do you have a theme for your home?
We are very country and we try to find those decorations that fit our style. The majority of the decorations on the Christmas tree have special meaning.
To show how you can take a basic older home and add to it to make it a spacious, relaxing retreat.
No theme, just decorated the way we like it to be.
We will have several quilts on display, a snowman and Christmas village display and several Christmas trees.
You will see decorating touches of leaves and trees.
