2nd Trim the Tree Thursday!







This week I am posting my upstairs hallway and stair landing. I like to keep like items together as a collection. If I have a favorite item, like a specific pottery snowman pictured, they stand alone. Quick Tip-rule of design is 1,3,5 or a collection. Following this rule can help give your space an organized, less cluttered look.


My mother made me the snowmen family sitting on the antique sled.











This chair was my great grandmothers and I recovered it using a curtain panel that matches those in my living room. The table was bought at an antique store for only $14-it looked terrible! My step-dad lovingly refinished it for me.































This is my favorite snowman out of my pottery snowmen.





Please be sure and visit these lovely ladies blogs and see some of their holiday decor! Thanks for joining ladies!

Hello! I love snomen. They always make me smile. I'm so looking forward to future weeks with this fun meme. I'm in Southern California right now where none of my Christmas goodies are. I will be travelling to Seattle next Tuesday and staying for 10 days and hope to get my Christmas decor up and ready to photograph. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and see you the week after...

I love your snowman collection. I have many of the same pottery snowmen. Great minds think alike...:)
I display mine after the Christmas decorations come down for a snow wintery theme so the whole house won't feel so bare through January.
Thank you for hosting this event.
Have a wonderful day.

Great collection of snowmen! And what a treasure that chair is!!! I have my grandmother's needlepoint rocker (the needlework was done by her)...she rocked my father, me & my grandchildren & now I rock my grandchildren in it. That chair has rocked 4 generations of babies!
