This will be a place for my Christmas mess to be edited and presented. New today: Front hall.
I am going to travel through the house, and show you as if I was leading you through.
The front hall is not a big job...but it sparkles. I use leaves encrusted with gold and silver glitter to catch and reflect the light. Since this is one of very few spots that gets light from outside, I like to shimmer. I just buy a spray of glitter encrusted stuff at Joanne's or Michael's, and deconstruct them. They are on sale for 1/2 off now, and I just bought a few more for next year. Dollar for dollar, they make the biggest difference in any room. I use them on all the mantels, in my trees, and in my Santa display. I adjust the glitter level for the surroundings: Santa gets only greens, but the tree and mantels need to pop. You'll see. Stay tuned for another day.
