Due to unforeseen circumstances, i.e., a whole week went missing between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I have only recently completed the Christmas 2013 decorating of my house. Here are a few photos of what's been going on at Tartan Terrace lately.
I decided to use nutcrackers this year to decorate my Welsh dresser. I've been working on a knock-off of a $395 MacKenzie-Childs nutcracker but didn't get it finished in time. Here's the original:
Hopefully I'll have it finished by Christmas 2014. Unfortunately I have the attention span of a goldfish, so who knows?
This is looking into the foyer from the living room/study:
This is looking in the opposite direction towards the dining room:
We had a small dinner party and I decorated with tartan ad nauseum:
I put my Staffordshire dogs on the lower shelf of the Welsh dresser. Can you tell which is the new one from Anthropologie that's a cookie jar? (Here's the link.)
Apparently felt stocking kits were popular back in the day. This is mine; considering how old it is, it's in pretty good shape:
This is my Staffordshire snow village. It's on a shelf above my computer:
My thanks to Alison over at The Polohouse for introducing me to beautiful, glittery snow here.
And finally, here's the little Windsor child's chair that I bought at an estate sale a few years ago. It's awaiting the appearance of our first little grandbaby, due any day now. So excited!
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a
