Our living room is finally set. This year I was influenced heavily by the style of Vintage by Nina and her latest amazing book 'A Winter's Tale' ...
A peek at her book inside this fabulous milk crate I found at the flea market this fall:
Here are some lovely pillow covers I got from H&M recently. They look great on our stark white couch!
Over the couch is a white Christmas themed shelf:
Crocheted stocking in a frame:
and sprayed pine cones from outdoors:
Not far from the tree is a corner with our white buffet. This year I decided to put a bookcase on top (sorry for the shadows - it's been cloudy here all week!):
A collection of Christmas goodies is presented here...
This cute pouch came from Rhonda - I just love it with a little green sprig inside!
Recently Michelle and I joined a wonderful new friend Carol on a trip to visit Nesting in Concord, MA. The store was in full Christmas wonderland display, enchanting as always. One of the owners, Beth, made this amazing little wreath ornament. I've attached it to my glitter trophy and just love it!
Here's a shot of us at Nesting. I had a great time with you ladies!

Next a look at the fireplace wall. I decided to put my white arched window here, along with a Scandinavian cross fabric banner I made. It hides that awful red brick! I made the pillow covers on the white chairs from coffee sacks.
Here's a closer look at the mantel:
I'm crushing on this rustic white house I found at Nesting, as well as the glitter star garland:
Nearby is a simple seating area:
On the other side of the fireplace is a simple collection as well:
Just some burlap ribbon wrapped around the tree in an ironstone bowl. Easy:
The front of the room holds my prairie style cupboard. Just love this in winter, too:
I've dubbed this my 'star' corner, because I've used paper glitter stars with gusto here!
Ms. Santos dons them...
...and my white horse is surrounded by sparkly stars...even the candle holders got them:
It's a perfect place to feature our Nativity scene. This year I nestled the scene in an old tool caddy that was made by my great-grandfather. I love that it has an 'M' carved out on the left side (for 'Manger' seems appropriate):
Hope you enjoyed this living room tour. Sending some warmth your way..
