In the past, I have had a Christmas tree in every room...including laundry and powder rooms. It didn't seem finished until they were all up. When I was in college, I even had a Christmas tree in my dorm room...so this is not a new obsession. My children all had Christmas trees in their rooms. They all had different themes and most were artificial. During one of my moves, I stored some trees and they got damaged. Most of the ornaments were fine. So, gradually I am rebuilding the tree supply.
As I was decorating...this lovely inspiration arrived! Boy, that stocking is the cutest thing!
Anyway... As I mentioned before...I usually decorate this house all in the blue, green, silver theme throughout. I did keep the main foyer and living room in these shades. But, I got bored.
So, I rummaged through some of my many Christmas boxes and found some red and white...inspired by the many cozy cottages you girls have in blog land.
I added this little tree to my kitchen.
This is at the base of the tree.
This little Santa holding up a snow ball candle is part of my table decorations, but it's not finished yet.
This little guy kept careful watch over me as I zipped around.
I have lots of red ribbon...who knows where it will end up...
