Christmas Extras in the Entry and Around the House

One last post on this years Christmas decor with an array of decorations from around the house.


A very special Christmas card from several years ago got a little frame this year...I paired it with my little sock snowman.

He sits beside a simple gathering on a, brass footed, vanity tray from early 20th century. It was quite a steal for $12!

 The details in it are amazing and every display that I've put upon it always makes me smile.


A simple arrangement on top of my re-newed dresser.

The tiniest cross stitch sampler is one that I did about 30 years ago....when my eyes were really, really good. It measures a teenie inch and 1/4 by an inch and 1/2!

Another beautiful reflection with one of my favorite things to collect...mirrors!
Chippy country painted mirrors, gilded Victorian mirrors, etched Venetian glass mirrors, boho style mirrors, I love all kinds...one day I'll have to share a post on mirrors that I've shared from my collections! 

This, simple country one, was the one that had been displayed in our bay window this past fall, until it was time for the Christmas change.

This vintage solid brass clock is one that I "stole"...no not really, from a re-sale shop for just $9 a while back. 

It has a trio of glam acorns for a touch of the season that we admire as we watch tv.

A framed picture hangs on the living room door and will stay around for the rest of winter.




  Home Sweet Home was thee house where I grew up!

Christmas touches above the couch in neutral, brass, white and gold.

Now,  pics of the entry......my $5 chair

and teddy bears for a bit of nostalgia this year.

I still have a few old, old, bears left from my old large collection.

Sometimes, I just can't make up my mind where things should stay put....like the bear in the basket or on the trunk.

This teddy in a Chistmas boot is actually a newer version. I've been holding on to him 'cause he so darn cute and squishy!

Then burgundy ornaments and greens piled in the trunk.....

until then came, yet, another change!

 A kissing ball hangs in the perfect spot on the chandy in the entry. 
I added the stencils around the doorway just for this pic in photoshop!


Two pretty views into our room through the gold rhinestone laden mirror.

this one is in the post of our mantel decor.

I love each component - especially the mirrors in the front entry! The sweetness just oozes out!!! If you don't sell some of your precious creations, there's something wrong haha.
