The entry is complete. The tree has been raised and the lights strung.
Hope you enjoy this "small" view of this space prepared for Christmas.
Hope everyone had a wonderful day!
Entry viewed from dining room. Mirror reflects the lighted tree. Faux animal print on stool with small parcels on top. Cleo the cat examines the three small trees and the Architectural prints stacked on the floor. Under the stairs - chair covered with embroidered linen. You can see the Chinese-style ginger jar and the walking stick with the dog's head. On the floor a small tree with wrapped parcel. Wreath on the front door.
Viewed from the living room. The table has a mirror (formerly a Christmas decoration), Eiffel tower, ginger jar, books, orchid plant and coloured balls to match those on the door wreath and balcony rail.
Coming through the front door. Carved wooden angels guard the tree.
Looking through the window on the second floor you can see the enamelled decorations hanging from the hallway rail. These are the wine glass identifiers. We took them with us on our sailing trip to decorate small trees on the boat. You can also see the light covers I made from cutting a cow bell in half and the portrait made from an old earring.
Closer view of the arrangement under the mirror that also reflects the tree.
