If you’re coming from Iron and Twine, welcome to the party! So many wonderful ladies have shared their fantastic tours already. Check out the first three days here:
Our mantel is decked out in bright colors, including a short strand of the felt garland I made. The merry & bright art is something I sketched out and painted on a piece of black foam from the Dollar Tree. For the past four years, I’ve made silhouette ornaments of each family member. And in years past, I’ve hung those ornaments on stands to place on a shelf. This year, the silhouettes mark each stocking, including a custom paint color. Our deep green chevron coffee table adds more pattern and color. When paired with red plaid scarf pillows, it’s a slight twist on traditional red and green. Original scarf tassels are a fun touch, too. Next to the fireplace is slightly less colorful and more glam. Lots of gold, white, some black, and a bit of blue. Ben’s first deer has a glitter star. You know, to girl him up a little. On the other side of the room I sewed plaid flannel pillow covers. Nothing says cozy like flannel, I always say. This buffalo check is great all year, too. In our less finished (okay, not even close) living room, I decorated the entertainment center. Though we have plans to build doors to hide the ugly electronics and cords. Gold on navy Holy Night song lyrics are Christmas-y, without screaming Christmas. Below is a wintery scene, complete with bottle brush trees, a hedgehog family, and squirrel. The dining room decor is much simpler. Our tree is in the corner. Large jingle bells hang from the chairs. And another snowy scene sits on the table. A cheap acrylic frame from Michael’s holds Epsom salt, trees, and mini birds. And a bokeh tree, because I can’t help myself. Thanks for stopping in! Pop over to Cuckoo 4 Design. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tour.
