Christmas In the Living Room
Today’s post was going to be Christmas By The Fireplace. The fire would be lite making everything seem so cozy. But I can’t get to the fireplace since there’s so much stuff in front of it. There are boxes that are headed to the thrift store I volunteer at.
The last two Christmas season I’ve been decorating simpler…so there’s much to get rid of. Mr. C joked telling me I couldn’t buy any it back. Funny, really funny.
Two days ago we got our first real snow storm of the season. Ginger loves the cold weather and snow.
She’s looking at me like “why did you just call me”? I want to go back and play in the snow. She burrows her nose into the snow and then rolls around in it. Sometimes she doesn’t even get off the deck before she’s rolling around.
She loves the colder weather because she has one of the thickets coats I’ve ever seen in a cocker. If you wonder why her ears look darker its because she is a Sable Cocker Spaniel which has hairs resembling soot or ashes.
We’ve been having roof leaks around our fireplace which I mentioned here. We tried making a claim through our insurance but we were denied. Today the area behind the fireplace is replaced. It will be nice not having bowls on the mantel collecting the drips.
One of my favorite ornaments the Cardinal nestled in a David and Henry basket.
I’ve mentioned before I like to use my vintage table linens in different ways. Since I have so many and I like seeing them because they’re much prettier outside the drawers. To add color a Christmas linen was draped over the loveseats.
Whenever thrifting I look for white dust ruffles. I’ve used them to add cottage charm to the bottom of my loveseat, make chairs covers and window curtains. Their also great to make pillow bolster out of them.
Each year I think about changing up the tree but always decide to go with a good old-fashioned looking one.
Christmas In The Living Room is where I’ll be sitting to do some knitting.
