As you enter their home you will notice parquet floors that lead into the large living room with natural wood vaulted ceiling, hardwood floors and a welcoming wood burning stove.

Little acts of kindness abound in their home. A portion of the furnishings were bought new and a portion was given by generous friends.

Don and Carol Vick have a large family and many friends, this lovely space welcomes and accommodate many.

Having lost all her Christmas ornaments in the fire, Carol is starting new with a stunning tree decorated with red ornaments and red cardinal birds.

To the left of the entry is a sunny cheerful breakfast room surrounded by a bay window, a round glass table with floral upholstery chairs sets on a beautiful coordinating floral rug.

Across is the large kitchen that leads to a formal dining room. Notice the table setting in the dining room.

Carol recently opened a high cupboard in the kitchen. There she noticed an entire set of Christmas dishes. There was a note attached which read, “From my house to yours — enjoy.” It was another act of kindness left by the former owner of the home.

Off the kitchen is a cozy TV room that looks out to a spacious covered patio, perfect for entertaining.

Carol has many talents including quilting and painting.

Carol’s delightful studio is light and bright, the perfect setting for her to create. Through the home you will see beautiful colorful paintings. They are all Carol’s creations!

You will not want to miss the Paradise Ridge Quilters’ holiday home tour this year. It is a wonderful expression of resilience.

Holiday Home Tour

The Paradise Ridge Quilters’ biennial Holiday Home tour is being held Dec. 4 and 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This year is especially festive. Our holiday home tour could be called creative resilience.

Each of our home owners lost their homes in the Camp Fire but they all had one common desire — they wanted to return to their home town of Paradise.

We are featuring four homes, two of the homes have been recently rebuilt on the same property and two homes were purchased ones that survived the fire.

In all of their houses, they have created beautiful cheerful homes to make more happy holiday memories for their families and friends.

We are excited to share with you, once again, the spirit of our town and the spirit of the holiday season.

Tickets can be purchased for a donation of $10 at Honey Run Quilters, 2418 Cohasset Road in Chico and Bobbi’s Boutique at 6264 Skyway in Paradise.

For your safety and ours, masks are required.

We hope to see all of you at our tour. Look for our articles featuring each of our homes in Friday editions of the Enterprise-Record and Mercury-Register during November and December. For more information contact Kim at 530-872-8492.
