In my antique doll's room, which is in my December banner, it is always Christmas...The little stable in a wallnut is standing under the Christmas tree, where red parcels are waiting to be unpacked.
In my cupboard
there is a little antique angel orchestra playing. The light is bad, but these are the dark days before Christmas, you know. With the little stable there are three mini bottle brush trees, which I received from Stacey in a swap package. This package was soooo beautiful, I'll post about it when she received mine too. Which is any moment now, I hope.
A closer look.
In another cupboard which really is too dark, there is a little childrens' prayer book with a small angel,
So I took it out of the cupboard to make a photo for you!
Now that you are here and I am here too, why not cheat a little and take a look at some photo's of previous Christmas in the digital era;
In our 19th century town house we have two large windows at the front, which I try to decorate in a different way each year. 2005 was a year of white and peacock feathers.
2004 big wreaths (somebody will hate me...but I think he is so cute this way)
Last year I hung up white branches.
Under the branches there were birdhouses and bird candles.
We have a huge tree every year. I never had a fake tree in my entire life though there is some discussion about a real tree this size, because (as we live in a city with lots of environmental regulations) it has to be shredded to be removed. The one who shreds wants an open discussion about a fake tree. But the smell of a real tree...ahh!
The mantle is decorated in another way every year too. With that large mirror it is always good to have candles, the more the merrier!
Or bling and candles, the mirror seem to double the bling, cannot be enough for this girl.
Hope you enjoyed my little Christmas party. Stay tuned for the decorations of 2008. There are a lot of pretty Christmas parties going on, so don't forget to join them. You'll find a list here. Thank you so much Heather for hosting this party. Have a lovely Christmas everybody!
