Once you come to knock on my front door, I open it to our small entrance. It is small but I always try to make it welcoming.
I have a mirror and chest of drawers sitting right by the door. This year, I decided I wanted to do something else there. For all the years we have lived her we have had the stitched Santas there. I showed them last Christmas on the blog. I have been loving all the silver/gold glass that is in the shops lately. This is unusual for me as I love using brass items which go with the Victorian/English style in my living room.
I dressed my wreath with eucalyptus and berries. I found some silver reindeer which I thought were perfect to add to the glassware. By placing them on the mirror ledge, I linked the wreath to the candles below.
Here is a close~up of them. I really love these. I added some of my fine tinsel to the arrangement.
It is really pretty when you place candles in the glass as they are imperfect with the silver and gold leaf placed on the inside. It gives a pretty effect through the candlelight. Click on the photos to enlarge them and see the details.
Here is another corner in my living room. This one is over by the dining area as we have one room downstairs. This is the large L&L angel I made which I referred to in the first Christmas post. I created a new flower arrangement with white roses to reflect the colors in the angel. We light the candle in the evenings and it again creates a pretty and warm atmosphere here.
