The original part of our house at Love and Life at Leadora was built in 1876. What I like best about my house is that it is filled with charm and details that newer homes don't always have. However, rooms in my home are small, and unfortunately there is not a lot of space for Christmas trees. In the past, I've squeezed in a snowman Christmas tree in the dining room and then cringed every time one of the kids or dogs rubbed up against it. So this year I decided to do a different kind of tree, and I used my white ironstone to do it.
My inspiration came from a Mary Engelbreit print that my mother gave me. Why is it that pretty Christmas prints are always hard to find? Anyway, the cost of the print was free, and although I paid to have it framed and mattted, it was totally worth it. Then I went to my snowman collection and chose my very favorite ones to display.
