Saturday I pulled out all my Christmas/Winter Decorations and filled the dining room table. Carmen (Primcats Farmhouse) inspired me to do this. Last year I just pulled from boxes and left lots in those boxes that never appeared in the decorating. This is the year to clean out and put things into a garage sale box.
I am really drawn to simple decorating - less is more. So with that in mind here a few of my arrangements so far....
My friend Melissa from Farm Field Primitives made me this angel several years ago and I've loved her for all those years - I usually keep her up with the snowmen into February. She's sitting in a bowl of dried black walnuts.
I purchased this little tree back in the spring for a great price of 75% off! The tin bucket was a Christmas present from Sauder Village to all of us employees a few years ago, handmade by our tinsmith.
The little snowmen have a very mysterious way of jumping off the tree, hmm.....
And here I was going to blame Frito for this mischief! I see now that Frito is just sitting, but Shadow is batting!
All I did was walk away and came back to this....
Our old dining room is now the piano room. I've added a few pieces of furniture here and am really liking the look of this room. The spinning wheel was a gift from my Mom, the 3 drawer dresser belonged to my Dad's parents and the desk in the corner was my great-grandfather's.
I'm in the process of creating a make-do chair. I'm planning on covering it in feedsacks. I'm stumped as to how to cover the arms without having a seam run down the front. Good Christmas project when my Mom is here over Christmas break.
Just a few touches of Decorations. I'm excited as there is snow on the ground here in Ohio (finally!). I'll share some more simple decorations later in the week. ~Ann
