A beautiful home in Las Vegas, dressed for the holidays

I was fortunate to have a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner in this home a few years ago. Bob, myself and my mom were invited with my sister, Cathy to Steve and Lisa Miller's beautiful home in a charming neighborhood in Las Vegas, Rancho De Monaco. In 1963, a total of 27 homes were built in this subdivision, including Steve and Lisa's, which sits on a quarter-acre lot. It's a Cape Cod style home the Miller's purchased from the previous owner/builder, Joan Harris, the landscape architect for the original Caesars Palace.

I love the urns bursting with poinsettias - nice touch! This is their Christmas 2010 photo.


Our windows won an award again this year - a pleasant surprise!

I'm lucky to have so many talented people around me that contribute to our shop. Debbi, who is a decorator extraordinaire! She makes our store look good. We all contribute but I love the way she puts things together. I've learned a lot from her.
Here's a peak at some of our decorations for the holidays. The Christmas decorations and ornaments are selling fast - very early this year, for some reason (which we're very happy about). Thank you Ocean Beach Mainstreet Association
