Seven days until Christmas ! Today is Christmas in the family room..
I hung the book page wreath over the side table 
\
 There is a chalkboard on a thrifted silver tray .. Pedestal plated with Dollar Tree ornaments ..greens from the Christmas Tree and a strand of white lights draped over the whole table.. ..a vintage scale with a Dept. 56 Santa
 On the chalk painted buffet..There is a book page tree ..a pedestal plate with thrift store putz houses...mason jars with Christmas lights ..a lantern with lights and greens .. Country Cottage Needleworks Silent Night framed on a thrift store sweater in a thrift store frame..Those sparkly reindeer came from Gordman's this year ...Aren't they pretty !
 The view from the kitchen ..the mantel and the snowman tree..and the Scrapbook tree.


 The mantel with the Home for Christmas Chalkboard, an all the cross stitched stockings..

This snowman tree is made on a 4ft tree.. I used muslin and stuffing to make the balls for the tree...This year I cut a piece of plaid homespun for the scarf and made a bow for the hat..There is one strand of lights draped on the branches..
 On the coffee table.. 3 sparkly houses in a tray with Dollar Tree ornaments and silver branches..

Christmas In The Foyer 2014

 Eight days until Christmas ! Today I am sharing the foyer decorated for Christmas ! You can see the wreaths in the kitchen windows when you walk in the front door..
 This little tree with mini ornaments sits by the front door in a bushell basket ..a flannel buffalo check bow is tied on the handle.. There is a snow scene mason jar and a Dept.56 Santa..

 The stairs are draped with flocked garland with other green and white greens poked in ..snowflakes.. white lights and big burlap bows..

 This is the first year to have a tree here in tthe foyer and I have to say I love it and it will be back ! MERRY AND BRIGHT TREE

 My youngest son bought me this light up glittery house at Homegoods for my birthday .. it is sitting on a vintage hamper basket from the thrift store.. love it here in the foyer :)
 This is a wrought iron tiered tray I got at an estate sale ..It is filled with a glittery magnolia leave garland ( also from an estate sale ) and a chalkboard on a thrift store frame.. The chain garland always hung on my tree as a child and this is the only piece I have left ..
 The DIY coffee filter wreath hangs on the mirror over the cabinet in the foyer..
 A vintage scale with a glitter house sits on a stack of old books..
 Vintage greenery draped over the mirror .one of my favorite Estate sale finds is this Santa ..He is made from a wool quilt ..Love him ! He is sitting on a thrifted cake pedestal plate..

From this point in the living room you can see four trees.. The owl tree with crocheted owl ornaments on the stairs..the Merry and Bright Tree..The flocked tree and the frasier fir .. If you click on the colored text it will take you to the individual posts about those trees or crafts :)
Thank you all so much for all your visits and wonderful comments !

Christmas In The Dining Room 2014


Nine days until Christmas ! Wow ! This month is going fast !
 In the dining room ..there is one tree ..The ice skate tree..


Like the kitchen , there is lots of Fitz and Floyd in here !

 This mini tree full of those mini Hallmark ornaments sits on a stack of BHG plates..
On the buffet... The platter is also from BHG at Walmart.. Fitz and Floyd Santa and Dept 56 Santas.
 Love this FItz and Floyd Santa in the wire cloche..topped with a small wreath and berries..
 The wire cloche is from Michael's..
 On the table is a Christmas quilt topped with DIY burlap wreath ..a thrift store pedestal plate with a glitter house from Homegoods..Santa and Mrs. Claus in the horse drawn carriage is from Dept. 56.. and a special gift from my Connecticut sister in law..Still loving the book page wreaths my daughter and I made last year ..this one has red ornaments in the center..
 The gingerbread Santa is also from Dept. 56
 The stitched piece on the back of the hutch is a free pattern from Plum Street Samplers framed on a burlap back in a thrift store frame....more Fitz and Floyd and Dept. 56 Santas..
 Fitz and Floyd Santas ..ornaments in Estate sale dishes with greenery surrounding them are in the hutch..
A flocked garland sits on top of the hutch with 3 white soup tureens..
 You can see the soup tureens better in this photo from the kitchen ..Two years ago this doorway was opened up during our diy remodel ...and what a difference it makes being able to see in to the dining room

Still so happy with the choice of the black dining room set ...Love it with the grey walls !

Thank you all so much for all your visits and wonderful comments !

Christmas In The Kitchen 2014


Good Morning ! Come on into my favorite room to decorate for Christmas !

This room has only one tree..The candy cane tree..and one cross stitched piece on top of the shelf to the right..Lizzie Kates Christmas ABC
 There are wreaths hanging in the windows...a garland on the light over the table

 The seasonal diy chalkboard hangs on the wall..The Christmas subway art table runner is on the table..
Fitz and Floyd on a vintage scale ..mason jar snow scene..the chicken even has a wreath around his neck..Santa salt and pepper shakers..on top of an upside down thrift store basket..
 Book page tree , saucers with ornaments and a cow creamer with flocked greenery on a silver tray..

 More Fitz and Floyd on a tray with chickens in a cloche on a teacup..Another cow creamer with flocked greens..
Another Fitz and Floyd cookie jar on the back of the hutch with another vintage scale ..ice skate ornament ... bottle brush trees  and mason jars..
 The table is set with Dollar Tree white plates with small wreaths ..and the Santa dishes I got at a church rummage sale.. gingham fabric for the napkins..bottle brush candy cane ornaments sit in the Santa bowls..

 The galvanized tiered tray sits on the table filled with Christmas goodies !
 On top of the refrigerator cabinet there are a couple more Fitz and Floyd pieces and a box filled with greenery and a white chicken..
 The basket vignette on the counter holds a big Fitz and Floyd Santa on his reindeer..greenery.. pinecones ..and a little putz type house..

 The hutch is filled with thrifty finds.. Everything except the center Santa plate was found at Estate sales or Rummage sales.. The big Santa platter on the bottom I got at a church rummage sale this summer for 75 cents ! The Santa plate in the middle was bought for me when I was a baby from my parents..
