Christmas at My House

Christmas is just a three days away. My children are beyond excited for the big day. The house is all decorated and although our live tree is getting rather dry and dropping needles, it still smells divine.
The tree is decorated with ornaments that hold many memories. I've collected many from places I've traveled, but my favorites are these whimsical angels I got at a little store in Heidelberg, Germany.

Each one is so unique and they all seem to have different personalities - the only commonality is a white feather. I just love them.

On my door, I have a pine cone wreath I made a few years ago. I wired each pine cone individually to the metal frame and then added embellishments. It's not the typical evergreen wreath you see everywhere, but I like it.

 This year I added a few birds, berries, greens and poinsettia flowers:

And finally, to the left of the door is another arrangement I created using white birch branches, berries and evergreen branches:

So there you have it! All set for Christmas. I feel like we have been decorating and planning for this day for weeks now and it's finally here. Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. What a beautiful tree! My mother used to sell scandinavian furniture and our tree was always decorated with ornaments similar to your wonderful angels made from wood shavings and paper - and now I also have a few. I just love these. Love your wreath and branch arrangement, too. What spirit. Merry Christmas!

  2. I love the arrangement by your front door with the white birch and berries. It's very striking. Hope your Christmas is as beautiful as your decorations.
