Good Morning! Thank you for all the sweet comments yesterday! Today I'm going to show you around the livingroom.
Since we got a real tree this year, I was able to cut off some of the lower branches to use on the entertainment center, coffee table and mantle. Our stockings have been hung by the chimney with care. ;0)
We found this village nativity on sale after Christmas, many years ago. The houses light up at night.
I use these candle sticks year round and just change out the rings. For Christmas I made some from greenery, pinecones and holly berries.
We have a small collection of Chrismtas books and I went to the library this past Sunday and got alot more. It looks like Fern is getting a head start on her reading. ;0)
Here is my coffee table. I got the idea for my "Rustic Woodland Scene" from the December 2003 Martha Stewart. I glued cinnamon sticks around paper covered candles. I found the deer figurines at Michael's. I like to use the word "rustic" when things are uneven or you can see dried hot glue..hehee.
I added red bows to the scones in my livingroom, in addition to the ones in the entryway.
I had a little of the tree trimmings left so I gathered them up with some ribbon and berries and placed one on each of the windowsills in my livingroon. I nestled a candle in the greenery.
Thanks for taking a look. I will show you the kitchen and dining room next!
