Welcome To Our Christmas Home

Here are some pictures of our home, all decorated for Jesus' Birdthay! The first wreath is on our front door - it's artificial but it's really beautiful. I picked up the little leather sleigh bell harness at Old Time Pottery for just $6!!!

This wreath hangs to the side of the front door. This is not a very good picture to see how cute it is. The wreath itself is a barbed wire coil. I have natural colored raffia, rustic Christmas ornaments, some sphagnum moss, and little electric candles all over. Right under the raffia bow is a little tin sign I got at Old Time Pottery that says, "Faith".

Here's our mantle and fireplace. This nativity scene was given to me this year for Christmas and is my favorite decoration in the whole house.

I made this arrangement with a super-sized vase. Inside the vase I put colored lights and pinecones. In the vase I have gold and snow painted pinecones glues on long metal picks along with the trimmings from the bottom of our fresh Frasier Fir Christmas tree. Also some little gold curly branches.

Here's another view of our mantle - LOTS of candles, snow fabric, more electric candles, my wreath hanger with a snowy swag, a pinecone graland and of course, our stockings.

Here's our tree!

Along with my rustic ornaments and pinecone ribbon, I added fresh limbs from our nandina bushes. They have the most glorious red berries this time of year and the foliage on them if so light and ferny, it really softens the tree.

Well, that's it! Hope you enjoy the pictures and maybe got a little inspired. If you have a log home, I'd love to hear about how you decorate for Christmas. What a blessing to have such an easy canvas to decorate! I'll add some more of our kitchen and dining room.
