2016 Christmas House Tour:
Love seeing our lights and the neighbor across the street’s lights through the window!
Foyer. 2017 resolution, stain the stairs!
Kitchen and Breakfast room.
These Santas below are German Rauchers (smokers). There is a spot to place incense and a scented smoke will emit from their mouths. I used the sugar and flour canisters to be my “snow” backdrop. I picked up this chrismas tree at a yard sale for 50 cents. Well, it was actually 1 dollar for two of them. A tealight can be placed inside and will light it up.
These are two square plates that look like they go together. They are actually the same color of creamy white and red, the lighting was doing something funky when I took the picture. Dining Room. Doubled up the wreath on the mirror and added a third tail down the back of the topiary so that it would appear to be a full ribbon/bow from all sides.
The angels represent my two children. There is a place for a tealight candle that when lit will light up the star cutouts. At night it is very pretty!
A trick to make the bow trailing ribbon seen from both sides is to fake it. Place a third tail down the back:
Close up of the two wreaths. I simply jammed the red one into the green one I have had for a while.
Do you spy something BLUE and new! That is my Christmas present to myself and will write about it and the mantle in a later post.
