Hey everyone! Wow, it has been awhile since I did a blog post! Did you miss me? Actually, you really don't need to answer that! We had very dear friends from Oregon renting a house in our neighborhood for the month of November and were with us for Thanksgiving. We had such a nice time with them, and blogging just didn't seem very important. I am happy to be back now with some Christmas decorating around our home. We aren't having any family celebrations here this year, so I have greatly scaled back my decorating from the norm. No big tree this year; I opted for 2 small trees inside and 2 outside. Today I thought I'd share the foyer and sitting room.
Here in the foyer, as well as the sitting and dining rooms, I used lots of gold and silver
with splashes of red.
I just love reflections, don't you?
Kris Kringle all ready to work his magic.
It's so peaceful and calm in this space during the day and.......
In the evening.
I made this crewel stitchery about thirty-five years ago, and still love displaying it.
Many, many mini-me's....again with the reflections!
Always fun to add my seasonal pillow covers.
Just a little sneak-peek at my dining room -- a post for another day!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour. I always love to share my home with all of you, and I'm definitely looking forward to sharing more spaces over the next couple of weeks.
