Welcome! Come on in.
I've been decking the halls. This is on my front door-little vintage looking sequin Santa.
Here's the living room, with newly painted black chairs and red pillows for Christmas. I love having a white slipcover- you can decorate in any color for any season.
I made these pillows a few years ago, different styles, but all Santas.
My little drop front desk is next to the couch. Usually it's closed, but I open it to decorate for the seasons. This year I decided to do a vintage elf theme.
I found the mushrooms at the thrift store(they were turquoise) and painted them up to shelter this little elf.
Found the oil lamp at a thrift/antique store in Waxahatchie, Texas . Little red guy hanging on for dear life!
If you have been following my blog, you know I like to decorate the piano ledge for my students. Rudolph's Christmas was actually my book, when I was a kid. I guess that means I'm vintage too. I love to use old sheet music or vintage magazine covers in frames. The little flocked ornie was from my tree when I grew up. It was always my favorite ornament.
On to the dining room. I found this pretty little thing awhile back and just had to have it. Pewter set behind it was from my Grandparents.
Miniature beaded tree, that was a kit from years ago, sits on a vintage tablecloth.
The oak piece above the door to the kitchen is from an old head board, that I got years ago at a garage sale. The vintage hanging light was the first thing I ever bought on Ebay.
This sits in my entryway. It's full of music ornaments, many of which I have received as gifts from my students through the years.
So here is part one. Hope you enjoyed my little tour. Joining Between Naps on the Porch.and Christmas Tour of Homes. Family room and kitchen to be shown soon.
I hope you all have gotten your decorations up and out, and are getting into the spirit of the season. I've still got shopping and baking to do, but that's the fun part(well, the baking anyway).
