Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour/ Day 1

Welcome to the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. 
I'm so glad you are here.

Come on in.

I craved traditional and nostalgic elements for our cozy Christmas this year.

A new green house bedecked with a lighted tree adorns the dresser in the entry way. 

I found it on clearance at our Christmas store.

A favorite hand painted and thrifted ceramic snowman waves hello.
I just love this little guy!

If you have been with me a while, you know that I love repeating elements.
Another snowman stands guard in a lantern in the dining room.

The old terrarium with a precious church is the centerpiece for the dining table.

The lambs were a thrifted find after Easter last year.
They received a new paint job.

The desk in the living room is a favorite spot to nestle some Christmas cheer.

The icy picks were cut from a Hobby Lobby garland.

The church print is actually a souvenir from my childhood.
It's a momento for attending church on Christmas Eve. How cute it that? 
Our church took a picture of my Sunday School class and set it in this card. 

It is just too fun in an antique frame. 
It's my favorite decorating element of the year. 

Plaid makes a good showing in the living room.
The Denver Throw from Pottery Barn is adorable.
The matching stocking and throw pillow were made from an old pleated skirt.

The garland on the stairs is a basic bottom of the line garland that has been augmented with picks that match the tree. 

That is it for me.
I hope you enjoyed my cozy tour.
