Houston Whiteside Holiday Homes Tour 2009

An automated Santa greeted visitors on part of the Houston Whiteside Historic District Holiday Homes Tour in Hutchinson, Kansas, on December 6.

The Houston Whiteside District contains a number of large homes about a century old. 506 East Avenue A is one of them and was on the tour. This photo was taken a few days after the tour because I couldn't resist the snow.

A tree molded around a clock in the entryway.

The dining room was a winter wonderland.

Upstairs, old department store Santas decorated a bedroom.

I've never seen this particular model of Santa before.

This is a Harold Gale Display company model 607. It was manufactured for many years and underwent a few cosmetic changes.

Here's what it does:

Back on the first floor, green ornaments on an aluminum tree add a touch of mid-century modernism.

Moving on down to 615 East Sherman, a basement room had floors nice enough to dance on, and that's just what they do.

The laundry room was cheery green.

This window is of course part of their everyday decor. I loved the colors.
