This is the last of my Christmas decor! I could have waited another 350 days or so to share, but I will be on to something else! Which is probably where all of you are right now with Christmas 2011...onto something else! Those of you visiting, thanks for hanging in there with me!
This is my challenge space - the dining room. It is the room where I put the (free) French country hutch (below.) The problem is the oak table and chairs don't match the hutch. I put some French chairs from around the house and the Swedish bench from my daughter's room at the table. I need a much bigger table cloth and an oval one would be nice! There are some beautiful ones on ETSY. The split oak basket is very old and holds a vintage street sign. I ran out of time to figure out where to hang it, so in the basket it went. 25th Street...Dec. 25...that is where I was going!
This mid-century reindeer is one of my favorite decorations. Many people inquired about him from last Christmas, but there are no markings on it. I purchased it at Summer Classics.
Next to my armoire is one of the oak chairs that was around the dining room table.
My friend Jenn gave me this wonderful pillow made of a coffee grain sack for my birthday. Her friend who has a sweet little business called, "High Cotton" (here) made it. She is very talented!
Here is our little Jesse tree. We all loved doing this and it really helped us to stay focused on the meaning of Christmas. I printed some of the ornaments and purchased a few others. You can check out Pinterest for lots of different ideas for your Jesse tree ornaments.
This is supposed to be our 'formal' living space, but there isn't anything formal about it. We pile into this room most nights.
I found this pillow at Belk on sale for $20. I love it and what a deal for a needlepoint pillow!
This smallish tree sat on our porch. The season has been warm enough, so I put out a few decorations to enjoy the milder Christmas! The container came from Tuesday Morning; small lights from Restoration Hardware.
Thanks for hanging in there with me!
