I now have 100 Followers!
I know it’s just a number but it shows that you all cared about and liked what you saw enough to take time out to hit the follow button. It means a lot to me and I’m very greatful to you all!
I managed to finish my Christmas decorating today and ended up in the dining room. I have a mantel in here and didn’t digress too much from my theme in the family room. I continued using greens, pinecones and some sparkle which came from lights and candles.
At one end of the dining room I have the mantel and my montauk. The montauk is a beast of a chair or as some may know it… a chair and a half! It is all down filled and is so comfy!
I continued using birch as well and I made one of my little logs into a candle holder in the same way I did with my driftwood candle holder. The tutorial for that is here.http://www.kimpowerstyle.com/driftwood-candle-holder-tutoria/
I added this lovely planter with greens, birch logs, pinecones and battery operated lights.
I have my harvest table in the middle of the room. I just draped it in a red toile PB table runner and placed some candles on it with a bit of greenery.
At the other end of the room, I have two armoires that I use for storage as my kitchen is really small and lacks a lot of space. You can see where I finally put my coffee filter wreath! I love draping greenery everywhere.
These are my paper whites in all their glory!
My tree is in the family room. It’s all in whites, creams and some pale gold. I don’t know if you can see but I used a burlap bow as a tree topper. I usually don’t put one on.
I went for a walk yesterday in the park and manged to find all kinds of birch bark on the ground. It was everywhere! (No trees were harmed in the making of this candle craft)lol.
I simply wrapped the birch bark around the candles and attached with push pins.
Here is the tree all lit up.
I wanted to show you the tree unlit as it looks so pretty with the green and white. I love it both ways!
These little buckets flanked my fireplace in the family room which I photographed in my mantel post.
I’ll be partying with these ladies this week…

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity says
Your home looks gorgeous. The white, green, and sparkle look is just perfect. You lucky duck finding all that birch bark. I'm always collecting it when I go to the cottage or on walks too, but it isn't always easy to find. I notice you don't live too far away from me as I live just west of Toronto.
Congrats on going so quickly from 100 to 200. You must have done that in just a couple of weeks.
Tracy F. says

oh I love your home, we have very similiar tastes…I just made the best cheescake recipe and it was too easy….what is the color of paint on your walls? We are going to be buying a house soon so I will be finally getting to pick out paint colors…
I just finished putting away the last of the Christmas decorations. After just discovering your blog and devouring the photos, I want to decorate again! But this time…using some of your beautiful ideas. I guess I will have to wait another 10 months or so!
beautiful!! What color/brand paint did you use??
