Christmas Open House…

You’ve seen my…

Christmas Transferware Plates

Christmas Centerpiece

Junk turned Christmas Decor

Christmas Tree

Christmas Mantel

and now here’s a post full of odds and ends from all over the house.

Good indoor photos on light deficient December days in Oregon is challenging,

but I gave it my best shot! (pun intended)

In the entry, a “tree” of fresh rosemary is decked with felt snowflakes.

Resting on the same bench as the rosemary, a wood caddy is filled with

vintage silverplate, a pair of binoculars, a Christmas book and a framed Christmas card.

Looking up to the stair landing a vintage rack mounted on the wall holds a vintage grain sack and french towels

and is draped with a garland of felt snowflakes and glass candy canes.

An antique trunk also rests in the stair landing and is topped with a vintage suitcase packed with Christmas greens, pinecones and jute webbing.

006

On a shelf in the hall, ironstone sits in a tray that becomes a catchall for incoming Christmas cards.

Also in the hallway a piece of driftwood becomes a hanger for Christmas birds

which hang above framed ink and pen drawings.

Heading into the living room, a vintage drying rack holds Christmas décor and photos.

Christmas stockings hang from a ladder which stands by the fireplace

A Christmas bear waits on little granddaughter’s chair for her to come visit Nana’s house.

A little Christmas bird nests on Christmas greens next to some candles wrapped in Christmas hymns.

The main wall of the living room holds this arrangement.

Now on into the dining room.

In the kitchen, an old stool sits next to the refrigerator.

On the stool rests an ironstone bowl which holds a simple arrangement of pinecones and jingle bells.

On into the kitchen, another look at the windowsill.

More Christmas touches in the kitchen and dining room.

In the master bedroom, above the bed a coastal inspired NOEL garland drapes over a mirror.

Before you head back out the front door

a driftwood hanger holds a tin star ornament, a warm sweater, and a glowing candle in a hanging canning jar.

  9. I love it all! Once again, I'm pinning your ideas.
    My favorite nook of all, I think, is the steamer trunk with the suitcase. Did you tell us once that that was your mother's suitcase? I might be imagining that.
