Ho Ho Holiday Office



Hello, everyone!  Can you believe that Christmas is just over a week away?

Our office got just a small touch of holiday love, but I thought I'd show you.




This room has book shelves lining two walls, but I didn't want to get too complicated in trying to decorate them for Christmas.
I have a little dresser on one wall that I use to store my ridiculous extensive stash of decor mags, so this is the space that I concentrated on.




I found this 'board on wheels/cart/not sure what it is' thing at the flea market and just thought it was cool!

I used it as a 'base' for a few holiday items.




I collected some goodies including a tiny Christmas tree, a vintage clock and a Madonna together under a rusty wire cloche, and hung a sparkly ornament on it.




My mom found this sweet little pot of greenery and pinecones for me, and I've had the candelabra.




I got this burlap tree in a bucket a few years ago from my friend Lori's shop and I still just love it!




I also got the painted door from Lori.  I've had it leaned up against the dresser for awhile-I like the height and texture and just think it works well here.




Before I just had a leather chair in here...




......but I decided to bring in an arm chair from the sunroom and put it on the other side of the dresser...




. ..and I like the new little seating area!







On the 'new' chair is an adorable Christmas pillow made by my friend Carol.




So there you have it!  Hope you enjoyed the little touches of Christmas in my office!




Have a fantastic day!

  16. What a great mix of items in your wire cloche! And yours is the second home office I've seen today that makes me realize how neglected mine is. So nice to have a sitting area too.

  17. Not 100% sure but we had a similar pair of wheely things at school. We put them under furniture to move things from classroom to classroom. Whatever it's real purpose it helped create an awesome vignette!

  30. I'm still wondering how you manage to get any work done in your office, I'd be too distracted. I love your vintage vignette, the wood thingie on wheels is a great way to anchor all your beautiful treasures.
