Hey everyone! I hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving; and if you did any Black Friday shopping, "bless your heart!" It was absolute craziness out there -- fun to see but not to participate in. I spent my holiday weekend doing a "wrap" on my Christmas decorating. I think it took me twice as long this year as ever before (good thing I started way early), but I am very pleased with the outcome. I took a ton of photos last night with all the lights, but I will be breaking it down and trying hard not to overload you with pics -- HA! Today I will be sharing some glimpses of our foyer and sitting-dining rooms. Hope you enjoy!
My "Family" tree is making another appearance but in a different form. More details about this later.
I made the snowflakes. More to come on this project.
The "Star" of the room!
I need to get some presents wrapped & placed under the tree so Abby will stop playing under
this skirt. If you want to see how I made this last year, go HERE.
I really love the look of the bleached bottle brush trees that I did a couple of weeks ago.
More of my snowflakes.
I normally have a lot of red Christmas items displayed in my hutch, but I wanted to keep my treasured china (belonged to my MIL) displayed, so I toned it down quite a bit.
Our nativity set was a major purchase for our second Christmas, some forty-three years ago!
I love decorating the top of the hutch. The cream-colored trees are made with drop cloth, and I will share how I did that in a later post.
I made this wreath a couple of years ago, did some tweaking last year, but didn't feel the need
to change any part of it this go around.
Top of the bar armoire.
I love switching out pillow covers.
Well, that is a wrap for this post. I am so happy to be finished, well, except for "tweaking!" I have lots more to share and cannot wait to see everyone else's Christmas decorating. Have a great week, and please stop in any time for cocoa and cookies!
