The Christmas Tour 2013

Hello my dear sweet friends!
Is this month flying by or what?
I thought it was high time that I took you on a little Christmas home tour.  
Today, I'm going to begin with a few shots of the dining room. 

Very simple, very neutral colors here. 
White, cream, silver, gold.
 My mom, oldest sister & I had some fun with the chandelier.
Kind of funny what happened really.
We were just wrapping burlap ribbon around it, haphazardly,
with no real thought involved...
just to see how it would look.
Next thing we knew, we grabbed the scissors, 
we added silver bulbs,
and there you go...we loved it! 

Nothing too fancy for the table centerpiece.
A lantern, a couple of silver glittered deer,
and a burlap poinsettia sit atop a silver beaded table runner. 

On the other side of my dining room table is my
chalkboard.  I know I'm no artiste, but here's what
I came up with for this year.

I hope you enjoyed my dining room tour, this far.
I'll be back soon to continue my home tour with you.
Have a wonderful week!
