Chairs of Welcome...My Christmas Decor, Part Two


I've been following a really wonderful blog party
these past few weeks called
There have been some really gorgeous examples
of warm and welcoming Fall holiday decor, but to be honest,
my front door ain't all that welcoming these days, so I sat this party out!

Sat being the operative word....see how sneaky I am?  ;-)

I just so happen to have a marvelous collection of
vintage-antique-primitive chairs that I like to "do-up" to fit each Season,
so I thought I'd give y'all another quick peek
at four of my dressed-up, scruffy beauties...



























If you're in no hurry, sit a spell and I'll whip ya up
some hot cider or hot chocolate. If you're extra good,
I'll even bust into my private stash of Pennsylvania Dutch nog!

Blessings to All!

That small metal (iron) chair is actually an antique child's chair from Mexico. I've had that forever, and could never part with it!

Thank you for continuing to encourage me to come outta my shell! :-)

Okay, love your Welcoming Chairs - you could host a blog party on that theme!

Your $.50 reindeer looks fabulous on his chair! Looks like he made himself right at home after you rescued him from the jungle out there.

I guess my favorite is the one you used for your new header - it is so dreamy...

HI, I'm reading through your old posts and I just love the styling on these chairs. May I ask, did you photoshop the ones that are sepia toned or use a special filter to achieve that effect? I am curious, hoping you will share. Still lovin' your blog, Andrea @ townandprairie
