More Decking

12.14.2010

Hope your week is off to a good start and for all those experiencing this arctic blast, keep warm and stay safe. Well, it's that time of week again to share our vignettes. Y'all probably are thinking what on earth else do you have to share? Well, I'll show you.



This is one of the dining room chairs that I had to move to here and you will see why in a later post.
I just placed a couple of gifts on it and an old stocking that I had. Oh, the cover on the back is just a pillow cover that I pulled over the back. Saw this idea on t.v. and tried it.






Moving on to the bench dressed up for Christmas.


Placed some Christmas pillows on it and Frosty's hat.






I purchased this cute needlepoint pillow a few years ago.


I have had this hat several years and now I see them everywhere.


My nutcracker collection sets atop my red hutch.


Yes, they were missing when I first pulled out all my Christmas stuff and then I found them in the bottom of my vintage hamper in my room under a bunch of stuff stored in there. Forgot that I put them there last year.


Last time my two year old granddaughter was here she found these Dr. Seuss books that I bought for them to enjoy when they are here. This was the first place she would run to when she got up in the morning.


Added some glittery poinsettia sprigs to this vintage silver plated loving cup and added a red hurricane for a simple vignette on this side table in the sitting room.





This is all I have on my coffee table in the great room.


I used my vintage grain sack here as a runner.


Filled my wicker tray with fresh greens, cranberries, pine cones and battery operated candles. The grandbabies are coming so I don't want real candles in their reach.

  11. Kim,
    Lovely decor. The stovepipe Snowman hat really caught my eye. This year, my Snowmen won't make their debut until after the Christmas goes away! I have a similar one that says, "I'll be back again someday". Thank you for sharing your lovely home!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  50. I've been behind on my blog reading and just caught up on your posts. Your whole house looks so beautiful, Kim! Your family is going to feel so welcome when they come for their visit.

  51. Kim, I love taking a break from writing and popping in on you to see more of your lovely Christmas decor! I also love the Frosty hat and have never seen one before! And I think it's wonderful that your granddaughter runs to get a Dr. Seuss book each morning when she is visiting. Those books were my favorite reads when I was little!

    It's cold and blustery here too, so hopefully we can both stay warm!

  61. I really love the bench. I have a weakness for Christmas pillows (and I didn't put any out this year)! I also really love Frosty's hat. You know, this is the first year I've seen a snowman hat for decorating and I've seen them used in so many different ways. Now, I want one!

  62. Lovely as usual. I want to be you when I grow up. Wait, I'm older, so how is that going to work? I do truly enjoy your blog and all the wonderful decorating you do so well.
