I don't know how you'd describe my Christmas decorating style.
It's a mix of tacky and tasteful.
Pastel and primary.
Vintage and modern.
Sorta all over the place.
And it works, at least for me.
A Dollar Tree glittered ribbon adorns the hallway portrait
of my Dad from his art school days.
And a big one graces the lampshade
in Harleigh's bathroom.
The hallway sports the same treatment as last year —
white wreath on the linen closet door, and a
stash of candy canes tied in ribbon and leaning in the corner.
The dollhouse on the hutch got a little flocked Christmas tree.
The trio of elves found a new home this year on a shelf in the study.
A small tree with glass ornaments sets atop the fridge.
And there's one in the foyer on the desk.
One of Gideon's favorite perches; he can look out the window at the front yard and street.
The paint along the floorboard is all chipped from where his nails have worn the paint.
I can't bear to repaint it. It would be like painting over the pencil tick marks on a door jamb where you've documentedyour children's heights over the years.
A tacky vintage reindeer on the hutch.
A vintage enamelware tub with pink poinsettias.
The cuckoo clock always gets a bottle brush wreath on the cuckoo's door.
Ice skates and the vintage sled I got at a yard sale for $5.
My favorite addition this year.
The chalkboard-painted canvas from our Feast (used it as the menu)
with Linus's monologue from
A Charlie Brown Christmas.
One of my crafted gifts this year, for my niece who is in graduate school studying Library Sciences.
Earlier this year, Spoonflower was offering a free square of any of their fabrics.
I dug around and found this card catalog fabric.
Made it into a little pillow.
