Two old newel posts found at a yard sale, laid on their sides draped in tulle were the inspiration.
We hung stars from the rag garland made from t shirts, sheets and my no longer white cotton shirts I wore last summer. I used left over morning coffee to soak the strips over night for more aging.
We added lots of different textures.
Chelsey wrapped styrofoam trees with pearls, I used old book pages.
Jingle bells, ornaments, tulle, wrought iron, star fish, holly, sap buckets, and moss.
I love the new flameless candles, couldn't place lit candles under rag garland if they weren't!
This little guy was found at a yard sale, he's very happy among the lace and book page forrest!
Thanks to Chelsey our Christmas decorating was fun and fast this year. I was so inspired by the dining room I had the rest of the house decorated before December 1st! I love sitting in the living room at night nestled in all the cozy warm light and christmas cheer!
