Christmas Wrapped Up


The living room. Peaceful especially in the evenings.
(these are in reverse order so you could start at the bottom and work your way up)

The kitchen window, I always do something here.  

I brought back this angel candle holder and loaded it with a few candles.

Another Santa display that was out by the front door last year.

Three doves that an old friend from New Mexico sent me many years ago.

The nativity.  

Looking back the other way.  I used many of the same elements as in the past but just found new ways to display them.

This angel was on center display above the mantel for a few years.

Eleves made an appearance in several spots this year.  I put her up on a candle holder and nestled this lighted ornament into her hand.

We found this Santa at Bronners this year, couldn't resist it!

Our grandson is here right now and I was decorating a bit with him in mind!

On the coffee table a gathering of bottle brush trees displayed in a mercury glass bowl.  I put a clear glass dish down inside to stand the trees on.

A bowl full of ornmanets with more bottle brush trees.

This is a MacKenzie Childs piece I got at least 8 years ago.

(another MacKenzie Childs piece)

This mantel is loaded up with MacKenzie Childs pieces.

These two reindeer and tree are new 
MacKenzie Childs pieces this year.

The big green cone trees were new from Home Goods this year too.

I love how the draped garlands and stockings layered in ended up looking.

A few of the elves on the tree...

The tree waiting for gifts to be opened!

Out by the front door I displayed a group of my nutcrackers.

A couple of closeups of the Candy Cane tree.

This giant candy cane came from Hobby Lobby and several of the ornaments and ribbon.

 The candy cane tree I created with my grandson in mind!

The formal dining table!
Well that's it for this year, wishing you a wonderful and joyous Christmas!

  3. Liz, I love your home! I was drooling over several of the pieces of underpinning furnishings, let alone the Christmas decor! The candy cane tree and all the Santas are such fun for the kids. I can see more Santas in my future. 😊🎅 Merry Christmas!

  8. Your home is so elegant and I love all the touches -- so many speak to me! The candy cane tree is darling and I love the quilt on the coffee table. Your tree -- a stunner. And what a beautiful Nativity. There is so very much to love here. I hope the season is kind to you and the weather, too. (We had a tree come down at the cottage with last week's storm -- sort of on the garage but leaning on a tree. Our neighbor is having it removed. He's the best. And we were super lucky.

  9. How cozy everything looks Liz! The tree that you created with your grands is adorable!
