Merry Christmas 2014

My Christmas decorating ideas started this year with a fur collar my friend, Cindi, gave me.
It was her Mother's from a 1950's coat.  I knew my dress form in the entry needed to be dressed up for the holidays to greet guests as they enter our home.

While stopping by a local shop to purchase some items, I spotted the area of Fall items that were "On Sale".  Oddly enough, there were three fur wired-ribbons.  The price was so good, I decided to buy all three because it matched the fur collar and I knew it would spark some ideas.  I placed one as a belt on the dress form and continued to put a rustic, woodsy tree by the form.

I, also, purchased this very cute bird ornament for the woodsy-themed tree.  It looks perfect coupled with the all natural bird's nest we preserved a few years ago.

The angel outfitted in her fur coat was perfect to hover on top of the tree.

What inspired your Christmas decorating?
