This charming photo (left) was posted on a blog I follow, “French Country Cottage“. The author, Courtney Allison, has displayed this on her mantle this year. It has some resemblance to what I have decided to do for my Christmas table centrepiece (below). Last Christmas I received a miniature zinc house and greenhouse as a gift and knew instantly I would use it in my holiday decor this season. I found three more zinc pieces to add to the collection. Battery operated mini lights accentuate the “architecture” of the structures and the miniature cedar trees and roses help to create an outdoor garden look.
From my house to yours, I wish you a beautiful Christmas. May the stress and chaos of the season magically fade away and in its place, you find the true meaning of this special time of the year.
