Simply felted pieces this year in the master.
On the garland, wreath, birds, figures.
Add candles and a few touches of blue.

The patterns in here are brown striped, 
blue florals, brown checks,
cream/brown stripe, blue quilts, etc.
The ceiling is painted blue with heavy cream walls,
and cream wool patterned carpet.
All mixed together willy nilly.
The blue house painting is mine.
The photography darling daughters'.

I made this advent over 10 years ago.
Almost all are Rennie family pieces 
including my Aunt Iva's frame.

Button hooks and eye wear were my Dad's collections.
As requested: a closer look at the felt birdies...
and a couple of the Sarah Lugg ornaments
 Howie DID NOT BREAK....
(remember he broke 4)

Have a great week,
if I don't see you before then.

Oh my, you have created a most tranquil (and festive) spot indeed! Wishing you much peace as you tuck into your cozy refuge.

Suzan, your home is just stunning. I like the way you put together the console table, house painting, shelf and photography. I had to look twice to realize it wasn't a fireplace. You are so creative.
