More from the Entry Hall

A few days ago I gave you just a little glimpse of what I was working on in the Entry Hall. To tell you the truth, I didn't really know where I was going with my Christmas decor this year. I had an idea, but it hadn't been developed yet. I need to have some inspirational "direction", and for the Entry Hall I found it in this silvery glittered swag and wreath. Everything needed to stay white with some glitter for good measure.

I have had a large (and heavy) vintage chalkware goose that I bought about seven years ago. It was "faux bois", so it had a brownish wood grain finish. It was a cool piece, but I painted it white so I could use it upstairs this year. Here she is with a little book page wreath ornament I bought from my sweet friend, Kenda, at Leola's Open House. It has our initial in it, so it's even more adorable.

A pair of bottle brush trees, a little greenery,
and my oatmeal tree in the urn.

Then just a few little details

I've been surprised where I've gone this year in the Dining Room and Living Room. I wanted to simplify. I'm not sure I did that, but one thing for sure, it's different.

Be sure and stop by The Marketplace this week
 for some Etsy Shopping fun!

Joining in on these parties:

  1. Debra,
    Love that goose, had one in my shop and was always sorry tht it sold. You have such a great blog here and the things you do to promote small online shops is admirable. Thank you for the Marketplace. Today is the first day I have linked up but I will be back.
    Blessings peg

  2. I love this whole area, Debra! That is a great swag! I wish I had kept a small goose I had; I would have painted him/her white. Oh well. I went simple this year and have already got plans to go through everything in January and donate quite a bit. I think my decorating tastes changing has affected my Christmas decorations, too!

  3. This is absolutely beautiful! Love what you've done.

  4. Debra, this is just beautiful! The white is so wintry, serene and pretty! I love it all!

  5. Beautiful! I especially like the book page wreath. Cool!

  6. Just so very pretty, Debra. I love the shutters for the backdrop. The goose is a great piece. Love the wintry look and Christmas feel too.

  7. So pretty. I always love white after I visit your blog!

  8. Your entry table is just is everything on it! I love all the white and have been painting as much of my stuff white as I can..not enough hours in the day! Have a great week!
    Hugs, Penny

  9. It is lovely. The goose is there looking after you.

  10. The goose with the wreath necklace is just too cute, Debra. I'm seeing the word "Simplify" all over blogland. I know that's the way I'm going.

  11. I LOVE it. I have been pulling things out of hiding this year and re-vamping them also. It kind of re-kindles a fire from the past. LOL Looks great!

  12. Hi Debra,

    I am loving your winter white wonderland pretty and serene. Also wanted to thank you so much for hosting your Marketplace.
