Home of the Week: Feeling festive in North Tonawanda

Angela Vacanti loves the farmhouse style. She decorates the entire house incorporating Christmas decor that reflects that – much of it purchased through the years from Kissel Country Tin in North Tonawanda.

She and her husband, Joe, have lived in their home in North Tonawanda for 18 years. They have two grown children and three grandchildren.

One guest room is called the Poinsettia Room. Another is the Snowman Room. The Quiet Room is a second-floor retreat off the master bedroom for reading and relaxing. The two dogs like it up there, too.

Here is how she described her passion for creating a warm and welcoming home for our online Home of the Week feature:

“As much as I enjoy making my home beautiful for each season, what’s most important to me is the whole spirit of giving. The traditions and memories we create with our family and friends are something we will hold on to for years to come.

“It has always, for as long as I can remember, brought me so much happiness creating a beautiful home not only for my family but to open up my home to everyone I care about not only during the holiday season but all year round,” she wrote.

Do you love your house enough to show it off? This could be your chance.

Last fall, we launched our online Home of the Week feature. This lets readers inside homes throughout Western New York. In the past year, we have featured a lake house, lofts, a cabin, old city houses, rural homes, suburban homes, townhouses and a penthouse apartment.

The Buffalo News continues to look for more homes to feature and the stories behind them and their décor. Those chosen will be displayed in a weekly feature at and could be chosen as a future Home of the Month in a Sunday print edition of The News.

Here’s what you need to do if you’re interested in submitting your residence for Home of the Week: Tell us about your home in 150 words or less, and email 10 hi-res images (in jpeg form) of the interior and exterior to

It’s OK to send the images split among several emails. Please include your name and the city or town where you live – and a phone number. While we can’t return a personal response to every submission, we plan to let you know via email that we received it.

We will contact those chosen to be featured on We will include your first and last names and the city or town in which you reside but not your exact address and certainly not your phone number.
