A BIT OF CHRISTMAS

The decorating is going slowly this year.
We had a busy few weeks prior - Country Sampler magazine was here 2 weeks ago to do a 'general decor' photo shoot.  We were so honored that they wanted to do a shoot again being we were in 9-1/2 years ago.  This won't be in until at least Feb., Mar. or April but I'll sure let you know when it is. 
We had to put all our Fall decor away and get the house in general order. That was harder than you might think. One generally decorates according to season. They didn't want anything that was specific to a season or holiday.
So after they did the shoot we immediately started to decorate for Christmas.
Again we decorate with a lot of greens and berries and a few decorative items.
Just yesterday I got the tree decorated although I don't have a picture of it.
Here are some random shots.





Our newest vintage ornaments we purchased throughout the year.
We search all year long at flea markets and antique shops for them.
























Hopefully I'll get a full room shot of the den with the stenciling.
The rooms have been so torn up with totes and piles of stuff that I haven't had a chance to as of yet.

Also...remember blogger doesn't let you comment anymore if you don't have the right settings so feel free to email me!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Hi Karen,

    Everything is so lovely. Brother and I spent the last two years that he was alive searching for and collecting vintage 50's-60's shiny-brite ornaments and Santa's and Elves. It always makes me so happy when I see the collections of others. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.
