Brown paper packages.... tied up with fancy string.... one of my favorite things!
Tomorrow I'm revealing my tree...which may I add, would be refused at any thrift store drop-off. I don't think I could pay someone to take it! It's a cross between a Charlie Brown Tree and the Grinch's fingertips... you'll see... Isn't this one simple and lovely?
First, IF I had a canopy bed, I would hang snowflakes. Second, IF I had a blue room, I'd give it splashes of red just for good measure...
Lest we forget ourselves and escape reality and think this beautiful scene would work in our house.... these are glass bulbs, on the GROUND... WAITING for your child to come by and toss them into the fire, or at you or a brother... Yes, this is a model home... for mannequins. Honestly, if you have glass bulbs on the ground (and they do look pretty there) and an unattended fire lit... Let's just say that this would be the last picture taken at my house before it burned.
Love this furniture... especially the piano in the back (music degree remember..) Can you see the carved work where you rest the music? Crazy that my eye was drawn there. Decorating for Christmas is so much easier if your walls are already red... just add green and your set. You don't need a huge formal wreath... just bunch greenery, tie with ribbon and hang over your door... I'm off to whack down the neighbors over grown branches!
Come back tomorrow for my bare all Christmas tree confessional!
