It has been a busy week here at our home.

Decking the halls is in full swing!

While many rooms are full of totes, boxes, and bags full of decorations

yet to be displayed

I have managed to make our work space a woodland delight!

home office decor

I love the etching on these cow bells.

vintage ornaments in cloche

I love vintage ornaments and cloches.

I used a metal wall @ to create a stand for the cloches.

Paper Mojo deer head

A vintage garden gate makes an industrial backdrop.

A seasonal paper mache deer head was transformed-

bedazzled in decorative paper and glass glitter.

An old white drawer and greens create a holiday vignette.

chunky twig pencils with bark

Chunky twig pencils make a great display accessory in the home office.

bakers twine on spools

Spools of Baker’s twine are easily accessible for holiday wrapping.

A few holiday gifts under a faux tree makes a simple festive grouping.

A sofa table is re-purposed into additional work space for completing homework.

A simple textured decorative box is a touch of holiday glam.

 Vintage glass ornaments

 woodland animals

are found adorning the slender Christmas tree.

We also display our handmade ornaments-

log with a bird nest

vintage ornament and hydrangea

Brown hydrangeas were cut and used to decorate the tree.

I love the texture and rustic feel they have.

I used a basket and ribbon to create a unique tree skirt.

I am having a deer obsession this season.

This guy is one of my favorite finds.

Oh deer….
