The Magnolia Foyer and a Winner

Hello Dear Readers!

I hope you all had a most Merry weekend. Our weekend was a special one

as we had our very first snow of the season. It was a Winter Wonderland of Snow.

About  6 to 8 inches of snow fell pretty much overnight,

and by the late afternoon it started melting due to the freezing rain.

Just hope it doesn’t turn to ice!

I have a couple of “snow photos” for you to see and 

today, it is all about the Magnolia Foyer and a winner.

The foyer in the Berry Patch house is not large,

so simple Christmas decor is all it needs.

The Great Room Christmas Tree

It takes me 2 full days to decorate the Great Room Christmas tree.

So many ornaments that I treasure to place on the tree.

The tree is a 9 foot Silverado Slim that I purchased

from Balsam Hill a couple of years ago. It replaced my 12 foot tree,

that truly got so cumbersome to decorate.

Always up and down a very tall ladder, so this 9 foot tree is easier to manage

not to mention taking up much less space.

A Southern Christmas Mantel of Magnolia Leaves

Love Magnolia leaves to decorate the house  for  Christmas, as it is so very Southern.

My Southern Christmas mantel of Magnolia leaves

was the first thing on the agenda for creating my Christmas decor this year.

It seems like styling the mantel is always the first thing that I do,

setting the tone for the room’s decor.

I really kept it very simple this year. Truly, I did. I even surprised myself!
