At Christmastime, the home’s vermillion and gold shades, in particular, lend themselves to Yuletide decorating. The tree stands in the living room, where twinkle lights, treasured ornaments, and vintage glass beads sparkle against the deep red walls, as do ivory poinsettias and swags of greenery. Since their wedding anniversary falls on December 15, Patty and Roland have a sweet tradition of repeating their vows beneath the branches each year. They also look forward to new memories made in this happy place, as children and grandchildren circle around the farmhouse table to celebrate the blessings of family and the joy of Christmas.
