The Home Stretch

Somehow, I am four days from Christmas with presents left to buy, ALL gifts left to wrap, and my Christmas cards have only this morning been mailed. This is so not like me. And I'm feeling a wee bit stressed...

But, Christmas will come and go before I know it and I hate that feeling. I'm attempting to slow down and enjoy the last days leading up to the grand finale.

In that spirit, a couple more shots of Christmas 'round our house:

A close up of the candle rings I put on my vintage wheat sconces. I was especially proud of this detailed touch. The rings had little glittered peppermints and candy canes.

Our living room armoire housed our Christmas cards this year, with some spillover nutcrackers. 

My dining room table got a centerpiece of all of my favorite jewel-toned ornaments with a porcelain cockatoo for good measure. Note the upside down ornaments sitting in my pineapple candlesticks...that's right.

Enjoy the last days of holiday cheer before we gather with our families and friends to celebrate.


  1. Your home looks lovely!

    Merry Christmas.

  2. It looks so wonderful & festive! The centerpiece is gorgeous! The cockatoo was the perfect touch!

    (isn't it kind of exhilarating to wait until last minute for everything? Gotta love adrenaline!)

  4. you house looks beautiful, I love how you have all the cards displayed!

  5. Lovely! I have the small golden wheat table with glass top to match your gorgeous wall sconces...got it for $50 at the flea market years ago. On top of it sits a flea market green and gold Cloisonné lamp and design books! Happy Holidays!!!

  6. Oh my goodness, everything looks so beautiful! Such a wonderful job on everything! Have a very Merry Christmas!
