Last year I created this three panel piece and used it for a display on my round table as seen "here" that I am not using any longer. I found these beautiful red swags at JoAnn's that I added to the front area and set the big owl that I've previously used on my pencil tree.
This wood top covers the built in cabinetry that separates our living room from the rest of the house.
The big lantern has been featured many times but this year I emptied it and came up with a new look.
That's a baby picture of our grandson gifted to us by the kids at Thanksgiving. I haven't decided where to permanently place it yet.
Let's open it up and look inside!
These are the little trees I bought at Terrain that I mentioned in my post the other day.
Dan created a light for me in the top of the lantern as featured "here"in 2010.
This Santa stood in front of the three panels last year on the round table. I like how he fits in here with the trees. He came from Lowe's a few years ago.
I added some of those wireless mini light strands to it for nighttime.
Just to the side in the living room I dressed out the wood card table that usually sits in the spot where the Christmas tree is. I got the tablecloths from MacKenzie Childs last year at the end of the season. The bottom one would have gone on the round table but since I'm not using it now I decided to use both of these together.
Late in the summer when Dan and I visited Mackinaw City we picked up the picture at a little gallery store.
This is a real time picture taken on Mackinac Island during the winter. Those are snowmobiles on the left and the horse carriage is real. If you aren't familiar with Mackinac Island here in Michigan it is virtually void of cars. People get around on bicycles, horses with carriages and wagons and of course on foot too. It's only accessible by boat.
This old world style Santa was bought last year at the end of the season sale in a cute gift shop in my hometown of Rochester, MI. I thought he looked like something you could believe you'd see in the scene depicted on Mackinac Island.
I got lantern crazy this year. Love it at night!
Last year I used this reindeer wall decoration on the mantel. I hooked it to the top of the easel with the picture. Seemed fitting for the vignette!
Tis' the Season!
