It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas …

Leave a comment

December 3, 2014 by Terry

Yesterday I took some time to step back from the daily busy and do a little decorating for Christmas.  Time goes by so fast anymore!  I can’t believe it is already the first week of December!

I don’t like to go crazy wild with over the top decorating.  Sometimes I feel that too much can become tacky and busy.  My children on the other hand would like it to look like “Christmas threw up” in our house … My daughter’s words exactly :0)   Well… that’s not going to happen… at least not in the way she would like.

I think this year we will try to go with more of a “natural” theme.  More greenery (real if possible) and minimal ornaments.  That’s not to say I won’t be using ornaments but I just won’t be putting out things like the frosted glass snowman or the wobbly Santa with spring legs.  It’s nice to change things up a bit each year!

DSCN3828Believe it or not this small wreath is from the dollar store.  I was quite surprised to find these there the other day.  I picked up three of them to put in my living room windows … they look pretty nice for dollar store wreaths :0)

DSCN3825 DSCN3829The wide ribbon used to hang them is also from the dollar store… these three wreaths with ribbon cost a total of $10.00!  Sweet!

I also used the little tree that I picked up at my favorite thrift store.  I like that it looks real.  I decided not to put ornaments on it and keep it minimal and natural looking, plus, the red tin pot gives it that Christmas feel…DSCN3830Since our kitchen / dining room is open to the living room I continued with the wreath theme in the large window there.  Since the berries are red in the small wreaths and the tree pot is red, I thought my large wreath made of red  poinsettias might look pretty…

DSCN3832 I like how it looks on my antique window …

Last year I had it hanging over my sideboard…

IMG_2278How the house has changed since last year.  This sideboard is no longer in the dining room and I don’t have that throw rug any more either…

That’s all I’ve done so far on this level of our house.  I did get the tree put up in our family room with the fireplace.  It looks so pretty in there.  I’ll share that with you tomorrow :0)

DSCN3861Thank you for the visit!

Smiles!

It’s almost time for peonies where I live! They are my absolute favourite flower how about you? This beautiful chair I did was part of a photo shoot for Blush Magazine, I no longer have it but I do have its sister... thinking I may have to replicate it for myself, I forgot how beautiful it is with all that gold leafing. Happy Wednesday everybody! #antique #goldleaf #blushmagazine #bridalprops #velvet #thecuratorscollection #peonies #florals Photo credit @joybreitkreutz flowers by @bloomandbasil chair by @thecuratorscollection

Looking back at earlier projects lately. I have forgotten how many there were. This is another example of sellers remorse for me. The legs… The casters…swoon😍. This was also the first piece of furniture that I slip covered. It turned out so pretty and sold right away! I hope you are all having a good start to your week! #slipcovered #slipcovers #antique #upcycledfurniture #interiordesign #beautiful #thecuratorscollection #design #shabbychic #featured
