My friend Jeannine over at Four Rooms decided to show a bit of her Christmas things each week. I really liked that idea, so here are a few things I did around the house yesterday to nudge me into the spirit of the holidays.
I do love to decorate!
This is our first tree in at least eight years. It's around 4' tall and sits on the dining room built-in nook. Next week I'll show it decorated and lit up.
~My little French piggy asked for a red ribbon~
When we first moved back to Rhode Island, I bought this rooster for Brian.
Rhode Island's state bird is the Rhode Island red chicken.
I bought a candle centerpiece for under two dollars and wrapped it around her neck.
Quite pretty, don't you think?
I love these vintage reproduction boxes I found at The Christmas Tree Shop,
both under $12 for the set. I'm a bargain hunter!
This adorable little cardinal was found at one of my favorite gift shops that carries my holiday candles: Frasier Fir by Thymes. Pricey, but wonderful!!
The little cardinal has sass, doesn't he? I love him.
And we mustn't forget to add a little holiday cheer to the bathroom!
This glass compote usually holds shells and driftwood.
But now it holds ornaments the color of the sea.
So that's what I did yesterday.
Stay tuned for more as I add things here and there.
