Merry Christmas friends!
i'm really tickled to share our home with you.
honestly each year i find myself simplifying my decorations just a little bit more than the year before.
i have boxes & boxes of Christmas decorations.
and quite the large collection of dept 56 snow village
but the last couple years have pulled out what i absolutely love
& been just fine with that.
having a large family, it's truly my desire to create a peaceful home.
a respite from our busy loud and crazy lives.
i think my girls would prefer i place every single ornament on the tree
& that i pull out everything we own for the holidays...but...maybe when we have grand babies! ha!
we loaded up with some fresh greens, white lights, silver and gold,
pulled out the mercury glass & grouped some of my collections together for more of a vignette look.
i'm still adding little touches here and there.
i hope you enjoy.
ya'll come on in~
our foyer holds our little nativity scene made in Uganda
i began collecting bottle brush trees several years ago.
this year i placed them on one of my mother in law's silver trays in the kitchen
where they could be easily seen & enjoyed.
i purchased the large gold frames at the country living fair. i walked around for at least an hour debating
whether to purchase them. what was i thinking? they're fabulous!
i'm so glad i snatched them up. i love propping them in different places.
one of my clients this fall brought me one from her own antique collection as a gift.
i have that one shown in the photo with the wooden snow covered tree.
my other favorite collection is my vintage ornaments.
i placed many of them in this large container.
i love having the fun pop of vintage color from both the ornaments
& the bottle brush trees in the kitchen.
