I’ve been holding onto a little secret for many many months and now I’m finally able to share it with all of you!
My home is appearing in the new book “Creatively Christmas ~ Inspired Yuletide Decor” by Jennifer Rizzo!!
I’ll never forget the day last year when I opened an email from Jennifer telling me about her new book deal and asking if she could photograph my house to appear in its holiday pages.
Didn’t take me long to respond with an enthusiastic YES!
Jennifer came over last December for the photo shoot, and I took photos of her taking photos but now I can’t find them. Sigh. I think they might be buried in the photo files of my old laptop so I need to retrieve them.
I realize it’s a little early to share Christmas decor, but to get you in the spirit of the book, I’m sharing a few pics from last year’s Christmas decor. These are not, however, the photos that will appear in the book.
Jennifer did her own styling and photographing in my home, which was fun to watch!
Every year hubby and I look for an imperfect Christmas tree to give it more of a vintage vibe.
Plus, when there are lots of awkward holes to the tree, you have more space to hang ornaments.
One year we actually cut lots of branches off our Christmas tree to make it less perfect!
Last year’s Christmas dining table is set with red and white.
I have to confess I’ve already started thinking about how I’m going to decorate this year.
Bowls of glass ornaments and a few greens.
This is a busy room and I don’t like stumbling over lots of stuff.
Several other houses appear in Jennifer’s book, Creatively Christmas.
This inspirational holiday book is now available for pre-order. I can’t wait to see it!
