When you enter my home, the stairway to the bedrooms is visible on your left.
I like to decorate the stair landing since it's one of the first things you see.
My antique trunk is topped with my Mama's old suitcase.
It's filled with Christmas greens, pinecones and jingle bells.
A vintage book about a little girl from Maine, (which is where Mama grew up), is propped in the suitcase, along with an old fashioned card that I framed, depicting a girl ice skating.
Above the antique trunk and suitcase hangs a french bread cooling rack,
at least that's what I was told it was.
I found it at the Goodwill quite some time ago, for under five dollars.
Hanging on it is an old grainsack and french towel that I bought in Maine and a few other old linens.
A garland made with fabric holiday ribbon and wool felt snowflakes top off my simple decor.
Simple-that's my decor theme this Christmas!
