Take a look around and I will show you what I did.
I still need to fill the box on the dining room table. I want to fill it with natural greenery and fruit, so I am going to wait until a little closer to Christmas. I will post pictures when I do it.
The greenery on the mantle is artificial. I got it at The Olde Homestead in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. The fruit is wax. I pick it up at Wal-Mart. The Santas came from The Cranberry Merchant in Carterville, Illinois. I strung the green beans last spring and Jeff strung the cranberries for me.
I had the felt white stocking, so I decided to tea stain them. Then I filled them with some twig greenery and added to candy canes that were made from pipe cleaners and then tea stained.
I made the greenery on the French door that leads to the music room from some old greenery I had. I tea stained the ribbon and tied it into a bow.
Each of the French doors leading to the keeping room, have one of these stockings on them. I had plain white cotton stockings, so I tea stained them and then added twig greenery. They are attached with a suction cup which is hidden by the greenery.
Jeff decorated this tree with his vintage glass ornaments. He always does such a good job placing the ornaments on the trees. Jeff decorates all of our trees.
I got this reproduction feather tree at Simple Country Treasures in Lebanon, Illinois. We put some vintage glass ornaments and some vintage candy ornaments that Jeff has collected over the years.
These folk art Santas were designed by folk artisit, Johanna Parker. I love them!
I designed and stitched the Christmas sampler that is next to the tree.
I like how the dining room turned out, how about you?
