I have noticed that a few of you are starting to post pictures of your Christmas decor. Everyone's homes look so cozy and inviting. I wanted to wait until I was totally done to take pictures of my home, but I don't think it will ever quite be "done". I will always be adding or moving things around throughout the season. I still can't figure out how to take a decent picture of something dimly lit and some of them are fuzzy. But, that's ok. I love the way the soft white lights make the home feel and the smell of the Christmas candle makes everything so inviting.
This is my entryway. See the white pumpkins? I was going to through them out after Thanksgiving but thought they might look nice still.
The paper ornaments are homemade with a pattern from Tammy's
A Primitive Place and the star garland is from Linda. I love that Santa's in his pajamas.
I love these little gingerbread men staring out at me. I made them this summer. Chestnuts from Linda.
The sign says "The Simple Things" which just about ties it all up. I love the simple things in life.
This is the "family"tree full of ornaments for the kids and past ones from my childhood. My DH chopped it down from the forest.
"And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there"
I am just starting my village collection. It sits on my mantle.
This Santa is not primitive but you have to admit, He's pretty neat. I love the scene etched onto his robes.
My primitive tree on the kitchen table is full of wooden and tin ornaments all the way around.
It's Christmas for prairie doll too. I wrapped up a box with a paper bag and grunged it with shoe polish and cinnamon. The string is coffee dyed too. It's really a lot cuter in person.
Last but not least. My tree upstairs is filled with vintage ornaments from my Grandmother Bean.
~Thanks for looking at my "simple"primitive Christmas. I love looking at everyone else's homes too. You are all so inspiring to me. Without you, I wouldn't know how things were to look or how to make them. There is a little part of everyone in my house this year.
