our house at christmas

Christmas seemed to creep up on me this year before I knew it!  We usually get our tree right after Thanksgiving, but I've been so busy with work that we didn't start decorating until almost two weeks later.  I didn't go all out like I usually do, but I'm happy with how the house looks (and smells!)  Come on in!

My mom's childhood ice skates and sled sit with lanterns, spray-painted branches and an antique milk can by the front door:

White pointsettias, mercury glass and a white pine garland greet guests in the entry:

My paperwhites are getting there, slowly but surely:


An 8 foot by 8 foot piece of burlap from the local feed store serves as our Christmas tree skirt:

My favorite part of the tree are my porcelain milk bone ornaments:

A little bling on the built-ins:

Fresh greens are everywhere-they make the house smell amazing:

 Clementines add a pop  of color to my kitchen:

Christmas cards hang from black and white striped ribbon:

I'm off to finish decorating a friend's front porch.  Happy Monday!
