Merry Little Christmas House Tour – Dining Room

Christmas Hutch

I was so excited to decorate my newly-painted hutch for Christmas this year!  I love how creamy white paint makes Christmas greens and reds look even more Christmas-ey. And fresh. And sweet. Nothing  looks more Christmas-ey than this little guy, though. The hutch got most of my attention, so I kept the rest of … [Read more...]

Merry Little Christmas House Tour

I've added just about as much Christmas as this little house can hold.  We're all feeling pretty warm and cozy.  Come on in and see!

I was finally able to take some pictures of my finished fall mantel.  The sun and I were not on the same schedule last week. It's a little subdued. I love topiaries, so I pulled out the glue gun and made some new ones.  Two are covered in rope.  One is covered in jute webbing. I also made this little wreath to brighten things … [Read more...]
