Welcome to Open House Sundays where we get a personal invitation to tour through a different blogger's house every week!
Hi I am Anne from White Lace Cottage and I am thrilled that Anne asked me to share my Shabby Chic Inspired Holiday tour.
I like keeping things simple in my home especially during the holidays.
I don't like changing my whole home around, instead I add simple touches.
This year I was feeling crafty and decided to make my ornaments for my tree.
Those star ornaments were made using poster board and German glass glitter.
I also made the paper garland using vintage music sheet roll paper.
My tree skirt was a very simple craft too,and no sew!
I love adding fresh greens in my home,tucking these in pitcher,or simply placed in a vignette.
On my table I added a garden urn,placed a bowl inside,added marble rocks and a few paperwhite bulbs.
I have been adding these in my home for the past couple years.
And since taking these photos these are starting to open.
My Angel wings adorn my vintage mannequin.
One of my favorite things to add in my home this time of the year is a rosemary tree in my home too,the scent is amazing!
It reminds me of lavender.
In my dining room I added a few Christmas touches,like that silver star garland.
I made these stars the same way I made my star tree ornaments,and then added a little trim to loop through to hang.
Fresh greens are tucked inside that vintage ice cream bucket.
A silver tinsel tree tucked in the corner.
With a few ornaments I made several years ago.
My Nativity set proudly sits on my mantle.
A box of ornaments placed in a box as part of my decoration,no room left on a tree.
But I still enjoy looking at them.
I love adding a tree to our kitchen,and since our kitchen is open to our family room we can enjoy it from either room.
This year I decided to add a few old drawers as the tree skirt for my tree.
On my tree I used torn strips from a tattered Shabby Chic sheet set tied together to make my garland.
A few extra pieces were tied on the ends of branches as bows.
The tree is adorned with handmade Angel wing ornaments I made using vintage wall paper and German glass glitter.
I always keep roses out,and I love this particular bouquet.
Living in the Midwest we miss out on enjoying flowers all year round.
I make it a point to add these to my home all year round.
And once they wilt I don't throw them out,I still enjoy the delicate beauty.
My holiday mantle this year was kept as it was before,I just added a chippy frame and my pom pom wreath.
I made the wreath using pink cotton balls found at a craft store.
I added a few vintage ornaments to that old tote along with some fresh greens.
A pink ceramic tree sits on my vintage perfectly shabby chic pink table.
A sweet friend of mine made that lovely and quite large stocking.
In my master bedroom I added this beautiful white tree,that has lovely pastel lights.
I found this tree at Walmart.
I know my tree looks pink,but I think it's all of my pink ornaments against the soft pastel lights.
That tree underneath my tree was also a no sew tree skirt.
Using tattered Shabby Chic sheets.
If you look closely you will see a very unusual garland.
This year I used garland made from vintage socks sewn together.
A pom pom was made using those same pink cotton balls as my pom pom wreath.
I just added a few mismatched vintage bells.
