Walking Into a Winter Wonderland

 Welcome to my friend Eleanor's oh so tastefully decorated home.  Notice the ordinary but lovely rope on her wreath.  She had pine boughs tied with the rope in each window and on the mailbox.  Now why didn't I think of that?
 Her tree is just lovely with white star fish, white snowflakes and garlands of white buttons. 
 Don't you love the white button wreath, the nativity and garlands of shells and buttons?
 This grouping of paperweights and white pttery just pop with the red poinsettia.  How about the brown pillows with the white trees on the couch?
     A simple wooden nativity that looks like it came from a pop up book is just right in this space.
You can only see a corner of it but she has two Adirondack chairs if front of the fireplace.  Perfect in this house.

Eleanor is a retired elementary school art teacher who has a gift for interior design.  There were so many more little vignettes I forgot to take pictures of .

It was like walking in a winter wonderland to enter her home.  Thanks for the invitation Eleanor!
