holiday | red + white

Franny

hello, hello! our holiday decorations are really simple this year and more about winter than christmas. frannie was made by ann wood and is dressed in an acorn hat & linen scarf for the cold. she's leaning on a vintage tiddlywinks container because she's had too much egg nog and can't stand up without some help ;).

Christmas Stocking

the little embroidered stocking is from the new york botanical gift shop and hangs on our china cabinet.

Birdhouse

my brother made the birdhouse long ago and i painted it white. the wooden bird ornament is from abc carpet & home and the embroidered clove-filled sachet a lucky score from wiksten.

Spool Wreath

the spool of thread wreath is from michael's and such a great idea!



the scandinavian-inspired martha stewart wrapping paper is also from michael's and the shanna murray gift tags are free in the november/december issue of rue magazine (page 60 or here). i also saw these tags yesterday from sharilyn and they are wonderful, too!

xo, cindy

Simple is better at times. I love your decorations- they sing Christmas and yet can be up past the holidays. Now this is my kind of decorations.
