No Glitz No Glam Christmas

Keeping it really simple this Christmas season no glitz or glam around here just using what I have and nature as my inspiration.

This is our petite tree we have in our family room this year.No lights no ornaments just as is.I placed it in a vintage sap bucket and added that number 3.I also wrote Joyeux Noel Merry Christmas in French.I love the reflection of this in my vintage mirror hanging on that door.

This year I decided to hang our stockings on my ladder in our dining room.

These sweet crochet stockings were all found at a thrift store last year.

A very simple center piece.Some fresh Christmas greens with a few scattered bows for a little bit of color.The silver platter and mirrored pedestal add a bit of sparkle.

    Anne, I LOVE your simple tree and LOVE the stockings hanging from the ladder! I just may have to copy that idea for my grandsons’ stockings. Hope you have a wonderful day, Gail

    I love your simple clean Christmas look. Breathing space I have had stop following blogs that have so much clutter to load – they take forever some days and visually they are not appealing. For me email is perfect, thank you for staying with this link. Patty/BC

    Oh my…. everything is just yummy. Yeah, I’m going to wish I had gone this route for sure… I have to totally undo my little pre-lit tree… you guessed it. The top third of the lights aren’t working, so I’m going to take it apart to add regular old lights. DANG it all.

    Love your peaceful look. I think it would mean more time recognizing the REAL joy of the season too.

    Thank you ever so much for praying for my friend…

    I just love this simplicity of greenery and white, with a touch of red! It looks effortless here, Anne. I think I may try this next year – I always seem to get ‘carried away’ each year.
    Your home looks beautiful. :)

    All is calm over here.
    Thank you for taking the time to visit, leaving a note of encouraging words to my Joyeux Noël -God Jul post. A simple Christmas for us as well, with the beauty of silent night, holy night nearing.

    Thank you for sharing your inspiration and beauty. It is so refreshing to see a natural take on Christmas.

    I love that little tree in the zinc bucket! So cute and very French Nordic! I’m not a fan of the flashing glitz either. I just like a bit of silver and mercury glass in the mix. Have a super wkend!
