The Sitting Room

I only added a few holiday touches in my favorite room. You probably thought the sun room was my favorite. It is where I hang out the most, but I love the feeling of this room and the smell of the old leather books. This room is filled with all the things I love such as dogs, horses, antlers, pillows, gingham, red and the books. This room is smaller and just has a cozier feel than other rooms in the house.





I filled my large silver tray with my moss covered deer that I made last year and pine cones.




I also added the old tusk horn, or whatever it is to the vignette.


I tucked a pine branch, pine cone and ornament in the black loving cup.




Here are the riding boots that I filled with greenery and pearls.


My bookcase has finally gotten filled with vintage leather books.


The only thing I added was a few ornaments to the silver bowl.


After taking the other pictures I tucked in some greenery here.



The WINNER of the Verbena Cottage giveaway using random.org is #15 Coastal Cottage Dreams.


For those who are going to be away from the blog world tomorrow may you have a wonderful weekend and a very Merry Christmas!!
