The silver snowflake wreath is the first thing you see on a closet door when you enter. I made it last year with all the snowflake and rosette dies I had. It's so lightweight and I get a lot of compliments on it. The belsnickle collection I started some years ago. They are mostly Ragon House and because I love them so much they take a prominent place on the foyer table. The green velvet is the newest this year.
Then comes my shelves which hold a mess of stuff. White plastic boxes from Wal Mart hold small stuff--adhesives,ephemera, game pieces, chipboard, all my SU solid paper, all the Sizzix dies, all my designer paper and all the stamps in CD cases.
Now let's go into the family room. Remember I said
not all the decorating was done. The mantel in here
is one example! Over the black jelly cabinet in the eating area is this box filled with green, berries from the nandina bushes in the yard, candles and ginger men.
Then in the family room is our newest acquisition....the pewter cabinet. We bought this from craigslist and had to drive two hours to get it but it was worth it. I couldn't have afforded it any other way. More studded oranges and greens and a bottle brush tree add some festivity to the pewter collection.
