A Christmassy Welcome...

Welcome to my Christmas Foyer....
 
 
my little foyer
was one of the first reasons
 I fell in love with my house...
 
the Victorians
loved their formal spaces,
 
they may not be the most user friendly spaces...
but,
I could hardly wait for my first Christmas here
to drape the stair rails in garland...
 
a settee and a tiny table nestle tightly
beneath the stairs...



to the right of the settee,
this hall tree...
 
a peek into my parlor
on the right
and
 to the left out of view
another door leads to the dining room...
 
 
my hall tree tabletop set in a Wintery scene...
 
you know
 I am Dreaming of a White Christmas...
 




a little table top tree...
 



with a birdie theme...
 


 
following tradition,
 a nest in your tree for good luck
in the New Year...
 




 


 
Iris,
my curious little mouse,
has been wondering what I am doing down here....
 

 
and lights out...
 
 
Merry Wishes to You...

You are living in a fairyland! I love your white frame collage over that beautiful settee, and the way the Christmas tree lights are reflected on the floor. It looks like a ballroom for the sugarplum fairiies! So pretty and dreamy. I adore your Victorian rooms! Very Merry!

I'm just now seeing this, and it all looks so beautiful i could just die. Someone is going to have to drug me to keep me from obsessing over painting my house the exact same color as yours!
