The recent snow just put me over the top for the holiday spirit around here, but there really is only one way to guarantee a White Christmas in this neck of the woods, and that's to take matters into your own hands! I've been enjoying tweaking and adding white and sparkly things to this corner of the sitting room, and to the shelves of my old painted cupboard.
I like the look of gathered objects together. They have more interest for me displayed that way. I'm sure I will be adding even more as the season goes on.
I definitely wanted some whimsey here, and a space for packages to pile up. There's even room on the cupboard doors to post greeting cards.
Cut paper snowflakes will go on the window panes. I've never had a dedicated Christmas corner in the house, and I'm loving it! I thought you might like to have a peek. . . .
A little flannel Victorian child's jacket waiting for buttons seems cozy here.
It's time to dress up the bears!
My new napkin rings from Pom Pom ready for party time!
Old bank file boxes from my summer Utah trip with a pretty little rumpled doily on top.
I wonder what I should hang from the old newel post. . . .
Definitely room for more doggies.
To tinsel or not to tinsel. . . . That is the question!
Love old shabby Shiny Brites!
Thank you for all the wonderful comments about our New Mexico snowfall! It really dressed up our winter brown town for a moment.
But now it's back to decking the halls. Busy week!
I hope yours is cozy and wonderful.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
