Holiday Home Tour

This last Sunday, I was fortunate to be invited to be a vendor at a new event sponsored by St. Brendan's Mother's Club in San Francisco - The Holiday Home Tour. It consisted of 6 beautiful and majestic homes in and near the St. Francis Woods neighborhood that were decorated for Christmas. Ticket holders were able to tour the 6 homes, and were even able to shop for Christmas presents in each of the homes. That's where I came in. I brought Tesoro to one of the homes!!

The event was beautifully orchestrated and the homes were stunning. The home that I participated in was furnished with exclusive antiques, including beautiful Oriental rugs and Italian ceramics. The owner prepared her dining room table with beautiful china, crystal and silver all set over a brocade tablecloth and adormed with an exquisite flower centerpiece.

Her formal living room featured an extremely tall Christmas tree and decorations on the baby grand piano. The breakfast nook included a small tree decorated with Muffy bears and other animal-themed ornaments. She even had a child's bedroom decorated with Christmas quilts and Raggedy Ann in her rocking chair!! The other homes on the tour I'm sure were equally gorgeous.

This was the first event of this type put on by St. Brendan's, but I'm sure they will continue the tradition as long as there are willing homes to view!!

Events like these really help to get you into the Christmas spirit - I only wish I could have taken the tour!!! But I was honored to have been made a part of this Holiday event :)


  1. I would love to get an up close look at the beautiful ceramics you sell! I am crazy for Italian pottery.

  2. Thank you!!! You can see what little inventory I have left at my website I sold a lot of my items at this event. My favorite items, the Christmas ornaments, were gone quickly. I need to take a trip to Deruta to pick up more stock (oh darn!!!). I'm hoping to be able to visit this year, but who knows if I can squeeze in any time off work to go.
