Welcome to my home!
I live in a wee little house in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon.
and today here's my living room.
I made the wall display over the old blue dresser more "Christmas-y".
Here's what it looked like before.
The nativity on the dresser is a wooden one from the toy company, Melissa and Doug.
I wanted one that the youngest grandkids could touch.
On the other side of the room is the fireplace,
with the mantel decorated simply this year.
An old wooden tool box is filled with greens and pinecones that I "glittered".
Old mustard crocks are filled with greens, pinecones and feathers
and sit atop my set of old Dickens books.
On my old trunk/coffee table sits a tray that holds some of my favorite Christmas books,
and some of my collection of Universal China's Woodvine pattern.
We decided to get a small table top tree this year, because we're having a houseful for Christmas.
A full size tree takes up a lot of space that can hold chairs and people!
I think it's so cute!
Next to the fireplace is my antique library table and wooden cubby.
Last year I used the 24 spaces in the cubby as an advent countdown,
this year it holds some of my favorite collectibles, including vintage santa mugs.
Since this photo I've added two more!
And here is the view from the living room back down the hall to the front door.
Thanks for coming by!
