Our winter wonderland

Here is my little white tree , now why didn't we try it in this room before , it feels right at home , with all the white and the cottagey ceilings....


Is this the cutest polar bear or what , adorable...


Perfect bears for my tinsel forest table scape...








I pinned these felt ornaments to the roman blinds , little added whimsy...






A few other things I banned from this Christmas scheme, colored lights and green garland ...



















A peanut free advent calendar , a nice pop of green it goes well with my two lanterns flanking the fireplace...



I wanted to keep the railing simple and clean by stringing up the furry blue snow ball garland with cream ribbon and giant felt snowflakes , these were a runner I found at Fabricland {if you are in Canada} that I cut apart...

All we need is snow , yuck, no thanks I would take a green Christmas any day ...
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my friends...

Looks so pretty Chris! The blue and white looks great, especially in your home. I'm changing things up a bit this year too, especially on our cowboy living room tree, less colour and more rustic. We'll still have the family room tree for the kids with all the colour.

I'm wondering if you have seen any burlap ribbon in the stores near you? It was suggested by several commenters on my Cowboy tree, and I have been having trouble finding some. I made a drop cloth/muslin garland but would love to add the burlap too.

It call looks lovely! I've been looking for a little white Christmas tree, but haven't had any luck. Where did you find yours? Loving the tinsel trees and polar bears! Great idea for the snowflakes!

Smiles,

Very festive. Love it all.

Love, love, love the square lampshade with the blue ribbon on it. I have ribbons tied into bows on a few lampshades, but none of them are square. It's on my shopping list now!
