Retro Holidays 2016

Standard

Not much changed this year in my Christmas decor. I only found a few new things that “made the cut”. Trying to keep it simple (the struggle is real) has made me much more selective.

Of course there were a few exceptions!

This pretty Christmas card box is a new addition in the peach bathroom.

So are these sweet angel girls. They are actually candle holders.

This great new Hallmark ornament is modeled after a split level mid-century home. I think it looks swell in my knotty pine mudroom.

Our cozy basement family room was decked out for the season.

My rolled gift wrap is corralled in an old shopping cart on wheels.

This table is where I do my wrapping and writing cards. It doubles as an extra dining space when we are entertaining. After Christmas it is perfect for puzzles on a cold winter day. The tablecloth was a recent estate sale find as were some of the Santa and snowman mugs in the buffet.

Some new albums were added to our collection this year.

Here are some of my winter Pyrex in action. I think I was whipping up a hot meal for our oldest who was flying in from Canada for the holidays.

These atomic dishes were a Christmas gift from my youngest. I just love this pattern; it looks great against my counter tops.

I got these great books from my Toronto boy. The Mid-Century Ads is a gem and chock full of colorful advertising on every single page.

Until next time, I hope you are enjoying these slower paced winter days.

We have a few projects planned for the next few months;  be sure to check back.
