Well, the garland disaster got fixed for the most part last night, although I still have a lot of fluffing and fixing to do before I show it to you. So for today I thought I would link up with Kathleen's White Wednesday and share pics of the Family Room.
The decor is pretty much the same as last year, so many of you have already seen it, but many have not... I hope you enjoy it in any case. :)
This is one of my favorite corners in the house. I do love my collection of vintage style Christmas trees displayed in slightly tarnished silver teapots and such.
There is usually a tree where that chair is. I have been doing two trees every year for as long as I can remember. This year, there was just so much going on that I didn't have the time (or energy) to do the second one. My sweet hubby is very disappointed as he is a HUGE kid when it comes to Christmas.
(I promised I would do it again next year)
This is the garland and mantle decor above the fireplace. There are loose Glass balls scattered all over the mantle in clear and silver. I am currently having a strange obsession with containers filled with shiny Christmas balls.
All the paper ornaments on the garland are hand made. Every year I am trying to make more but try as I might, I only seem to manage a couple before time runs out.
This is a view of the Family room from the other direction. This garland also has handmade ornaments although slightly different in style than the other.
The vintage style glass garland is new this year from a wonderful store called Rustic Stuff in Scottsdale. Paul does amazing Christmas displays there and never miss a visit before the Holidays.
He also has wonderful sales on stuff the closer it gets to Christmas so go check it out if you can!
I hope you enjoyed my little tour. Now I'm off to go visit the rest of you who are joining Kathleen for White Wednesday!
