Boughs of Holly
The Mister and I and the children spent a good bit of last weekend decking the halls of the T&C house, including decorating our tree, a beautiful Frasier fir. Below are some photos I hope you enjoy!
Our Advent wreath on the family room coffee table.
With the tree in the background.
The tree, with lots of old ornaments and lots of kid-made ones, too.
Santa needlepoint pillows in the Ralph plaid wing chair, looking from the family room into the living room.
Pine boughs among the wooden bowls and beadles, looking from the family room into the front hall.
One of my favorites in the family room is a faux feather tree from Martha Stewart's Kmart collection. I pryed it out of its original pot and placed it in an old wooden box. It is trimmed with small vintage ornaments.
Cranberry wreaths from Restoration Hardware in our sitting area just off the kitchen.
The kitchen has faux juniper wreaths in the windows. The Santa with holly and the stitchery were gifts, and the red lamp is actually an old metal flour canister that Mr. T&C made into a lamp for me. I think I bought it for six dollars at Reninger's antiques fair in Mount Dora, Florida.
Pomander oranges and pine are the only decorations needed in the red front hall.
The living room with a resin nativity, which was a gift, and is one of our favorite decorations.
