Heavenly Holiday Entry





I've realized at Christmas I lean toward a white and ethereal look on the entry console; white lights and white and neutral colors with a light and bright look. For Christmas this year I've tried to bring out a few pieces that are some of my early Christmas d├ęcor that I haven't shared for years. 






When gathering ideas for this spot I located a larger resin figure from the 80's or 90's that had originally been clothed in a deep burgundy robe. She was supposed to be part of an angelic "host" but I only managed to acquire the one figure. Years ago I painted her white, but no matter how many coats of paint, a bit of a pink cast came through. I couldn't locate her set of wings so I made do with what I had. She joined the rest of the vignette.






Often I use my neutral "oatmeal" Christmas tree here, but this year I opted for a faux wild gathering of paperwhites, for a natural arrangement. It's held together with some grapevine wicker "wattle", a gold brocade ribbon and adorned with a NOEL ornament. 





Several years ago our older daughter gifted all the girls in the family a precious angelic painting. The one I chose is blonde like out daughter.






She's here on a vintage silver tray that often shows up at Christmas. German Glass Glitter trees, and a special Christmas Sheep candle from Anthropologie many years ago join in.










The print is "The Shortening Winter's Day" by Joseph Farquharson.







A church votive holder is nestled in the white wreath.






Thanks so much for coming by.
Here are a few posts from past Christmas Entries...

    I love the angel. Did you use a chalk paint? The whole display is beautiful. Jan in MA
