|We are a casual family, and love the outdoors. Greenery with lights, ornaments keep our spirits bright. It's my blog, so I can be as corny as I like. ;)|
|I have a collection of moose, I just love these huge awkward guys.|
|This year I placed em' in the Christmas place of honor, the mantle. Another take on that woodsy theme I love.|
|They look right at home with my Robert Woods painting and the snow capped mountains.|
|My favorite moose, he's actually a puppet. Someday I'll make up Christmas Moose stories to tell my future grandchildren.|
Do you have a special collection? How do you display it?

|The Bell's will be Ringing . . . it's Christmas time again . . .|
|The dining room is ready for Christmas.|
|Silver, snow, berries, and twigs are all aglow.|
|Both hurricanes are filled with snow, flocked bottle brush trees and a votive .. I'm careful to keep the flame clear--A tabletop bonfire wouldn't do.|
Can't you hear Bob, Phil, Betty and Judy?
Snow, snow, snow, snow . . .
|Wishing you a Merry Christmas, surrounded by those you love.|
The Inspired Room

|A mantle dressed with pewter and pine cones, the dining room window (stone houses have such deep walls), and a gleaming tea service. Simple and beautiful. The bottom pic is of the entry foyer, fresh pine garland and red bows. Perfect.|
|The Parlor. I love the grass-cloth wall paper and how they have the art cover the whole expanse of wall.|
|The cozy kitchen. I just love those copper pots, the island and the backyard view. The kitchen is located in the basement of the house.|
|Historical homes can be on the small side, so the homeowners placed their dining room downstairs. It works, since the basement is a walkout.|
|Both the kitchen and dining room look onto the side yard patio.|

|A quick visit to Oma's Barn. Woodsy greenery, silver and white caught my eye here. I especially love this stone house print, notice the full moon and the shadows it casts on the snowy roof.|
|At Three French Hens this Moose is one of my favs. Not sure if I would want this guy on my wall, but I do find him adorable!|
|Combine 3 compatible ribbons for a gorgeous effect.|
|I am so drawn to this woodsy nature type decor. Possible it reminds me of the hikes I take . . . only no moose sightings in Missouri.|
|This victorian sleigh is bedecked with greenery, ribbons, present and St. Nick himself.|
This was my first visit to Three French Hen's and I will definitely be back.
|Ute, adorned with a bouncy Santa hat and silver ornaments earrings, greeted us warmly.|
