A Little Christmas Here and There

I'm finished decking the halls, well the living room anyway. It's my favorite time of the year. Lets take a little look see shall we?


This year I put up a tabletop tree instead of my usual 7 footer. I like it so much better. Being in a small space it just feels more comfortable.


I placed the tree in a antiqued galvanized tub and filled in around the bottom with snow,I added feather wreaths to the window and chalkboard. My Angel wings top the tree.








 White feathers placed in clear balls.




Silver balls placed in an ironstone tureen.


 Candles and lanterns placed on the ottoman in front of the sofa.


 Cute pompom throw bought at Target and my snowy village.


 The snowy village up close and under glass.



The buffet/mantle, thanks for looking at my one room decorating LOL. Merry Christmas! Joining these great ladies this week.
