Welcome to my home!
I'm new to this... but so excited to join in Karla's Cottage virtual home party!
Christmas is my favorite time of year! Here are a few of my favorites things...
This year I tried something new on the mantel. My mom found me a simple wood box last spring thinking I could use it for something. Well... I added some rose appliques on front, beaded trim all around, then painted it white. It makes a perfect mini Christmas tree holder! The stocking is one I made out of vintage chenille.
Nothing is sweeter then Father Christmas all decked out in pink! He is even carrying roses!
I absolutely adore old Christmas ornaments! Here are a few of my favorites separated by color and displayed in apothecary jars.
The view from our entry hallway. I love how the lights reflect off the window and mirror over the mantle.
I recently purchased this Frosty the Snowman book off Ebay to replace the one I had as a child. When it arrived, I just had to put it on display - the illustrations are so sweet!
Since 2003, I have used an artificial tree. My hubby is estactic that he doesn't have to go with "picky" me to the tree farm to find the perfect tree anymore. One year we drove around to at least 4 tree farms before I could settle on "the one". Needless to say, that wasn't one of our better times! :o) He is more then happy to just get the tree out of storage!
