Holiday Home Tour Offers up a Vintage Americana Retro Christmas

This weekend is the Houston Heights Holiday Home Tour.  Each year the Heights Association hosts a holiday home tour featuring 6 area homes.  The homes vary in architectural style.  Each home is privately owned.  The homeowners open up their homes for 2 days and hundreds of people are allowed to meander through taking in each of the homes architectural style as well as the homeowners personal taste in home decor.

The first home we visited was a vintage time capsule and veritable treasure trove of vintage americana. This 2 bedroom cottage was built in 1920.  The homeowner is not only passionate about vintage americana but she is a collector in every sense of the word.  Her home is filled with coin-operated vending machines, mid-century home furnishings and Depression-era Fiesta dinnerware.

If you, like me love all things vintage then you would agree that this is the house to see on this years tour of homes.  From the large collection of vintage Christmas Americana including a large plastic nativity and a lighted angel choir to the working vintage coke machine in the kitchen to the Slender…eeze vibrating health lounger, this home has it going on.

Here is a little taste of the Holiday Home Tour  Vintage Americana Retro Christmas
