I am starting with my entryway, dining area and little touches in the kitchen. Living room and tree will be in the next post.
My front door wreath I made several years ago using swags of magnolia and roses. The wreath hanger is from CTS and the only one that allows me to close the door!
I added two ornaments that I received from two of my best friends for my 1st Christmas here in 2008. One is a Hallmark gold key and the other is a door with a wreath from a craft fair. The bows I kept from gift baskets.
The back of the front door has my gingerbread card holder and some jingle bells.
My hutch decked out with my mother's Christmas Tree by Spode dishes. A Christmas gift from my dad back in the mid-70's.
This Christmas tree tray is from Italy and is hand painted. The markings in the back are pretty much worn off - it is at least 50 years old!
I said I wasn't going to buy anything this Christmas but I decided I would postpone my austerity program until January 2nd. This swag reminds me of an angel.
My centerpiece is a small tree with cardinals (one of my favorite wild birds) and my Clothtique Santa Firemen.
The cross in the upper left side is my first purchase in a Hobby Lobby. Closest one to me is 90 minute drive. But I was determined to get there.
I purchased the Clothtique Santa firemen in the late 1980's at the Hotel Hershey in Hershey, Pennsylvania. They are my favorite pieces and are in memory of my dad (12/22/19 - 12/26/78), a fireman and a little girl's best Santa ;-).
Closeup of my embroidered tea cloth. Needs ironing :/
A simple red berry wreath with a matching bow (also saved from a gift last year) with a snowman door knob hanger and my Mrs. Ginger Gingerbread cookie jar (currently empty).
A little touch in the living room by the stairs. But the rest will be in the next post.
Thanks for stopping by. I will be joining Natasha at Keeping the Spirit Alive 365 and The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.
