Since we're traveling to my home state of New Mexico for the holiday season, I'm adding only a few small Christmas touches to the house. The big one being the boxwood wreath in our window.
That huge overstuffed chair on the left has been sitting in a neglected corner of the living room until I could get rid of it -- which I had been putting off. But I had to do some rearranging to do a photoshoot of some recent stuff for our business. (Photos coming soon.) I think it will stay there for awhile. We're in the market for a new sofa and I think we're going to bite the bullet and get a sectional. In which case, both pieces of upholstery will go.
So my bamboo chairs, which were sitting where the overstuffed chair is now got moved for this spare scene.
Sort of an ode to New Mexico. Remember those tumbleweed looking pillows from Ikea years ago? I still love them, but neglected to notice that the one on the right was turned sideways when I took the photo. :)
My mom gave me these pretty yellow beeswax candles a few years ago for my vintage brass candle collection. They're almost too pretty to burn!
And to my Nambe bowl, I added a few simple pine cones and a brass ornament that never got packed away last year.
That's going to do it for Christmas decorating this year. I want to keep it simple and natural. My goal is to keep the boxes of decorations and ornaments packed away since we only have a few short weeks to enjoy these decorations before we leave.
And actually, before our plans changed and we decided to go home, I was going to do a simple Christmas anyway. My aunt and uncle always do a beautiful natural tree strung only with tons of small, white Christmas lights. They add no other decoration, and it is stunning. My plan was to copy that idea this year, but it will have to wait for next!
