Since the Christmas decor is down and packed up, I wanted to share how I am bringing the outside in for winter.
I found this door last fall here and had planned on using it for a tabletop, then I saw this photo (left) on Pinterest. I thought the door looked amazingly like mine on the right.
So I decided to use mine in a similar way...
I wanted to add the rustic, country elements to the elegance of the buffet, so I used the burlap and muslin runner I made for Knight's Store on etsy.
I wanted to use this box I made out of a newel post from the old house. I took it apart, left three sides and added caps at both ends. I finally decided to put my grandfather's books inside along with some juniper sprigs and deer antlers.
The window is the same one from the old house I used at Christmas with photos of my dad and family when they lived there.
I made this candle holder of bark from a Hemlock tree that fell a couple years ago. I made it in the summer and used seashells around the candles, then in the fall I changed to acorns, etc. For winter I have used pinecones, juniper and cinnamon.
I kept the old vinegar bottle and added fresh juniper, cedar and arborvitae branches.
This is how I'm bringing the outside in for Winter...although it does't really seem like winter here. We had several years lately with a lot of snow, but not this year.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please come over to my facebook page because we are having a lot of fun that you don't want to miss:-)
