Today lets look at a few details of my Christmas decor a bit closer. I love the whole picture of my decorated rooms but sometimes I like to take a closer look at some of the Christmas details. We will start in the living room at our Christmas tree. You can see details of the trees ornaments in my earlier post.
Beside my chair I placed the old window that was on the shelf all summer. I hung a woven basket bag from Haiti on the window and tucked it full of boxwood, bay, and a fun ornament my sister gave me a few years ago.
My Metal Side Table isn’t very big on top but I managed to tuck a couple tiny trees here to make it a bit festive.
To the left of our TV, on top of the piano, David broods over the Christmas decor. Though his expression never changes I believe he is rather happy with his place where he can see what’s happening in this room. And I think he quite likes his gold, glittery fluff surrounding him 😀
In the dining room we find a bit of a woodland paradise. Sheepskin from IKEA. Vintage baby deer from an antique store – my Mom gave them to me for Christmas last year. Antler is one my brother found while farming a few years ago. Sticks from the yard, fresh bay and magnolia create a ‘tree’ for the deer to rest under.
Beside my front door, on the little table, I placed a large flower frog that I found at the Springfield flea this fall. The house I found at Home Goods a few weeks ago, the old scoop I got from Smiths Merchants, that shop I have been selling my things in. An old folding ruler is shaped into a crown.On the shelf beside the front door I have my small collection of cutting boards, some glittery trees, and my ‘moose’. I’ve always called him a moose but really he’s an elk. But since I started out calling him a ‘moose’ that’s what I continue to call him.
I love all the little details. Now to get things finished up for Christmas – since my family came out for my Grandma’s funeral this week, we are having Christmas with them on Saturday. I’m scrambling to get things done for that, keep up with the last minute pillow orders that keep coming in, and find time to spend with my sister and her family and my brother. And we’ve started the process of going through my Grandma’s things while they are here too. I won’t be getting bored anytime soon 😀
