Welcome to the FRONT door to our home! It is not decorated for Christmas, no one has ever used this door. But I thought it would be fun to have YOU enter here ;) to see the outside of my home decorated for Christmas see this post.
I wanted to keep my decorating pretty simple this year since we will not actually be here for Christmas. Since I didn't really get the chance to decorate last year due to us moving into this house, I wanted to enjoy decorating as much as possible this year.
The carolers were my grandmothers.
The Christmas village were Christmas gifts for several years from the same grandmother.
This Santa was part of my grandmas Christmas decor ever since I can remember, I think she made it years ago.
She also made most of these Snow Babies. The two that she didn't make my son and daughter made one summer that they went to visit. It is one of my favorite things to put up.
The Christmas mantel this year. I kept the same cupboard door that has been up since spring, left the same twig wreath that I put up for my fall mantel, added a subway art canvas I created last year. I fell in love with the candle sticks from Partylite, so added them to my mantel along with a fresh cedar bough, white lights and ornaments.
Most of the ornaments I scored at TJ Maxx.
We went with a real Christmas tree this year. Smells so good with the fresh pine and cedar boughs.
Closer view of the tree. The large ornaments came from Dollar Tree, the other ornaments I already had from years past.
A mix of textures on the coffee table, love!
I couldn't resist this vintage look ornament at a local gift store. Who doesn't love a little white church?!
One of the subway art frames I made this year.
Found this great red ornament shaped card holder at an antique store a few weeks ago for $15.00! Added it to a wooden box I found at goodwill for $3.00, a pine garland and a couple red poinsettias.
Another look at the banister. I love the added warmth of the faux furs on the sofa.
An evening shot of the tree. Next up a little tour of the kitchen and powder room. Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely evening.
