A woodland coffee table vignette seemed to be the perfect choice
of a theme this year to coordinate with my new Pottery Barn Deer Crewel pillows.
I gathered woodland items from my Christmas/Holiday stash
and carefully created the vignette to coordinate with the decor in the room.
Yes, I took my cue from the pillows on the chairs and the Ironstone Foot Bath
on the hearth that is filled with faux winter greens and pinecones
that are both real and pretty frosted pinecone ornaments.
It seems like this breadboard has been a staple on the table
for the past several months along with the breadboards on the mantel.
The crystal deer seemed to be the best for this particular vignette
adding a bit of bling to the color and textures of pinecones and the brown winter trees.
The ironstone bowl with the pinecones
was formerly on the dining room table in a simple centerpiece
and it was a great fit for this vignette.
Through the years I have acquired such a large inventory of Christmas decor and
ornaments. In the past, the day after Christmas I would go to my favorite shops
that had beautiful Christmas decor and obtain it for 50 to 75% off or more.
Years ago, a family member was an Avon representative,
so in support of her, I ordered Avon products, but mostly their decorative items.
One of these items is this gold pinecone votive that I bought in the ’80’s.
I have kept it through the years. The candle is gone but it makes a great pinecone holder!
I love Luminara candles … I admit, they are a bit pricey,
but I have managed to use my Pottery Barn rewards to get them.
The Birch candle is my favorite. The flickering light is mesmerizing.
The book, “Oh Christmas Tree” is one of my favorite Christmas decor books
by Mary Carol Garrity.
You may have noticed my antique French Commode in the background next to the chair.
This year, I decided to display many of my Byer Carolers throughout the house.
I have gotten away from using most of them these past several years…
just using a few here and there.
The caroler sits on top of antique Shakespeare books with the marble design covers.
A petite ironstone tureen has a special place on the French Commode.
The French Commode was a purchase while in France several years ago.
Decorating for Christmas is in full swing here. Although slow, as I am
trying to place my Christmas decor in different rooms and vignettes
for a new look without having to buy additional things.
The Pottery Barn pillow covers have been my only new purchase this year.
I could not resist them!
The Great Room is almost done with the exception of the tree.
It takes me a couple of days to decorate it as it has about 1,000 ornaments on it!
Have a most beautiful day! I am overlooking the back yard as I type and seeing the
beautiful Fall leaves cascade to the ground.
It is so sad to see them go but look forward to them next year!
