Earlier this week I shared our living room and kitchen. Today’s post is the family room where we spend many hours each evening. Watching tv and looking at the tree is a most pleasant way to end the day.
Our tree looks pretty much the same from year-to-year. This year I added a topper similar to one Mama has always used from the late 60’s or 70’s. I bought mine in a Christmas shop in Manteo. My grandmother made our tree skirt and it’s been used by our family as long as I can remember. Mama let me have it a few years ago.
Gifts await Christmas morning in an antique laundry basket.
From the family room, this vignette can be seen on top of the pie safe in the dining area. The Econolite will stay out all winter. If you aren’t familiar with these, there’s a light inside with a tube that turns making it look like it’s snowing.
