“Better late than never” I say. I just had a sweet blogging friend tell me that is the reason we blog is to post whenever we want or can. So I am here to share a little Christmas with you.
My focus this year was to have a little French Christmas.
I used crowns to top all of the trees.
Every year I try to find something different to set my large white tree in and this year I use an old spindly chair and gather lovely decor around it.
The tree’s decor was neutrals, pink and bits of black.
I just love trees especially feather trees. They are very expensive and was not in ,y budget this year so I make my own out of wire and white tinsel.
On my large antique coffee table I added bridle crowns antique candle holders, beads bibles to bring out some sparkle.
My sweet deer collection roams on top of an antique suitcase and a wooden trunk.
A wonder to behold.
Candles adorn the mantle this year with white faux boughs and pink ribbon along with a pink tulle wreath that I made this year.
On top of my steamer trunk I made a vignette of neutrals and blues. I experimented this year with using one basic color to a vignette. It gives a nice calm feeling to the display.
I gave most of my Madonna’s a facelift with paint. I am loving them.
I have always viewed the Christmas holidays as a very sacred time so I tend to decorate the way that I feel.
This nativity set has been part of my family from the very beginning it brings to mind many Christmases past.
These vignettes are on my bookcase. Using neutrals it gives a very soft feeling.
I took a wooden frame and added hooks on it to display some of my antique ornaments. Some are from the 1920’s they hung on my father’s tree when he was a child.
Switching my pillow covers out to pink and white adds a lot of softness to the room. The book Kringle is the novel that I am reading to my grands this Christmas season.
I decked my primitive cupboard out in blues and neutrals this year. I also took my stash of dried roses and glued them all onto a foam wreath.
My bedroom is wrapped in blue.
The dressforms get a brand new look for Christmas.
I used blues and red in my kitchen this year and I liked it so well that I think I will be adding some reds here this year.
*Sorry for the dark pictures the fluorescent light in the kitchen blew as I was shooting these pictures. *
I hope that you all had a very wonderful holiday season. Now that I have my computer problems fixed and am feeling a little better I will be doing more projects to share.
I will be at these amazing parties this week, come and join me!
