My living room. At this time of year - I like to transform my surroundings and create a change that is refreshing - but can also be reversed easily when the season passes.
To add texture and interest - I draped the mantel wall with burlap.
My old tool box is filled with wood shavings and vintage Christmas ornaments.
Feathers, found at the beach this year with my daughters, are tucked into evergreen boughs.
This year I had the good luck (in my mind) to come across a large bag of old house numbers at a thrift store. Priced at only $1.00 - I couldn't pass it up. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them at the time - I just knew I had to have them. Once the tree was up - the idea hit me. I tied each number with jute and hung them on the tree.
Old photographs, purchased at an estate sale years ago, are clipped to the tree with antique German curtain rings.
Bits of an old sweater are clipped into small squares and strung on yarn to make a soft, textured garland.
I've never liked tree stands. Our tree sits in a burlap wrapped planter that is filled with pea gravel.
Glass icicles hang from the windows.
