The tradition at Hodgepodge has become that we dress one window in an indoor/outdoor theme and the other window in a winter white theme. I’ve already shared the indoor and outdoor “rooms” of the other window and now . . .
This is the scene set on a serving tray on our daybed. The bottle brush tree with vintage-look ornaments and flocking is wonderful. Then there’s the European-style Saint Nicholas with his lantern. The pharmacy canister, along with the pillar candle I wrapped in sheet music and tied with a ribbon round out this vignette.
I dressed the mannequin in one of our little black dress aprons and gave her a skirt of flocked branches. The Fleur de Lis is from the Wendy Addison collection.
This partridge pair is one of my favorite decorative accents to use throughout the holidays. With just the right amount of gilt, these terra cotta birds add the perfect touch to your Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s decor. We had them last year and they sold-out before I could grab a pair for myself . . . that won’t happen this year!
As my life seems to be controlled by these things, why not choose clocks which me happy to be a clock watcher? This large metal clock has a slight curve and a great weathered appeal.
Under this conservatory-style cloche you’ll find a stack of vintage books, along with some pocket watches and an old-world-style globe ornament.
A tight shot of the globe.
This Father Christmas wood cut-out stands about 3 feet tall and looks great on the hearth, in the foyer and on the porch.
Our white feather trees have been part of the Hodgepodge decor since we first opened. I love this simple display of Wendy Addison’s collection of icon disc ornaments and glitter birds.
The icons are printed on a heavy cardstock and hung from a gorgeous bronze ribbon. They come in a set of twelve.
The glitter birds come in a set of three. As with all of Wendy’s glitter designs, they are made using real glass and silver glitter, so their vintage appeal is undeniable, especially as they patina with age.
More of Wendy’s creations round out the White Window this year.
Thanks for taking a look. If you’re in the area I invite you in to see these items for yourself. They would work in almost any home.
Speaking of which, I’m wondering . . . how do you decorate for the holidays? Do you choose a specific color theme? Do you have multiple trees? What are your traditions? Or, are you doing something totally new this year?
