Nearly every year since we moved here I have managed to visit the homes on the Christmas home tour. This year I was very disappointed. It was obvious that the owners had money and lots of it. Where were the creative inexpensive touches? The tags were still on some of the ornaments and decorations like they were going to return them after the tours. One home did have a tree decorated, heavily, with antique ornaments that were interesting to study; another had a couple of interesting small things, a room with grandma's furniture and candlesticks used to hold ornaments..
