Christmas Foyer Window

Christmas Mantle

Hey guys!   Today I wanted to show you my Christmasfied foyer.
I started out by hanging our white fuzzy stockings…I filled them with some old toys from years gone by. :0)

See the pink lantern?  I got it marked down at TJ Maxx for $7.00….it was red, which would be fine for traditional Christmas colors….but I’m a pink girl, so it got spray painted pink. Besides, I’m using it all year long, so it definitely couldn’t have stayed red…Ya'll know my house has no red in it at all! lol (oh and it has a flameless candle in it, which makes for a festive little light at night!)

Christmas decor

The little pink trees came from Michaels last year after Christmas…they were half off….I bought three.  I love my old glitter tree…I don’t even remember where it came from, but it’s a Christmas staple in our home now.

Here are my Dollar Tree vases I made filled with fake snow…also from the Dollar Tree.  Have you seen it?   It came in a little clear baggy inside a can and it was a fine powder….you add water and poof, you have snow! (ok..you have to mix it up..then poof!) :0)
I added my white bottle brush trees and a couple of old books for some height and voila’! (I sound like a magician…poof and voila’!) LOL

Dollar Tree

OH…you see that cute little snowman?  My middle son made that in 5th grade….I treasure the things my kids made growing up. He’s 19 now and I wouldn’t take anything for all his little Christmas projects we’ve made together.

So that was my Christmas-y foyer!
I’ll do another Christmas post later this week and show you a few little vignettes around our home.

Merry Christmas!

That is very nice!

I am a RED girl - lots of red accents in my cottage! :) I love how your lantern looks painted pink. Very cute and a great idea with the battery operated candle!

This is SO charming, Missy...and perfectly YOU! The window makes such a fun frame for your photos, too! Can't wait to see more!

Your Christmas decorations are beautiful. However the pink lantern would have stayed red in my house. I have lots of red in my kitchen.

Like the way your window frames the photos. Great snow, I think I need some. Very pretty! Stella

Missy, what a great job you did with your foyer decorations! I love the glitter Christmas tree you say is old-just love it! That snowman is so cute too that your son made. I like the lantern pink! Love the flameless candle idea too! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I love your Christmasy-fied foyer window. It's so pretty. Love how you painted the lantern pink with the flameless candle. That will be pretty left out all year. I also love the little snowman that your son made when he was a little boy. I know that you will treasure it for always.

Hugs,
Lee Laurie

Your pink Christmas things are so pretty! I love it! I have a lot of shabby chic Christmas decor, too, but I also have some traditional mixed in. :-)
