The little trees I created with mini clay pots & small glass jars ~ hot glued in and some with candle wax melted in to hold in the little trees. And, of course, the monster Christmas tree with its cut-down base to fit inside the antique ceiling fixture now held inside with epoxy and cement.
One last look at our Christmas…
I normally have a lot of white around the house:
The French-style dining chairs painted white in the dining room (because I got tired of them being brown and because my friend Kathy hasthe most gorgeous home all white and shabby! and I want to capture that here!), the 1980’s/1990’s coffee table that I finally decided to turn white, and the slipcovers just made for the living room and the matelasse slipcover on the easy chair
bought off the former homeowner of this house that is now upstairs in our bedroom.
To me, there isn’t enough white ~
I like white!
To me, it’s very calming, very soothing
after a tough day at work.
It de-stresses me.
My kids aren’t overly fond of white furniture for some reason (I have no idea why!)
and we do have a lot of darker furniture pieces; I am a purist for some.
My late 40’s/early 1950’s Drexel desk
is one piece I am not intending to paint.
One never knows!
Every piece of furniture that is more of a natural pine or darker stained piece
has white glass rings on them due to some cold beverage being set on them without benefit of a coaster…
The painting may continue!
I haven’t gone a full
White Christmas yet…
two years ago my daughter
and I put up only the white
We filled it with only silver and white
ornaments and it was stunning!
A favorite ornament found a couple of years ago at Michael’s. Love, love, love birds and have hung many different bird ornaments from our chandelier, on the trees ~ sometimes all year! From the chandelier, I mean. 😉
From our Christmas tea in early December ~ Love using the white plates found at Marshall’s a year ago or so with the thriftshop silver-plate tray used as a charger.
The fork is part of a set given to me by my sister-in-law, Linnea, from when she and my brother were living in England. They were a Christmas or birthday present one year. She knew I loved silverware just as much as she did. She found a box of silver place settings at their base thriftshop on RAF Molesworth.
