Merry Christmas Part One~

Welcome~ Step in to the apartment entry'I'm happy you're here!' To your left, a large silvered vase serves as a grand lumiere. The leaded glass window gives you a peek into the living room~
A fresh rosemary topiary sits opposite, toward the hallway and bar that leads into the kitchen~

The mirror above the living room mantel gives you a great view of the room. The felt icicle garland is early 1960's; the white pressed mache' bells are a personal treasure. I found the nine bells stacked, with their original price tag in old ink script: $1.13/dozen~You can see one of a pair of stately Alan cabinets; the wine box with holly pots (on top) was shown a couple weeks ago. Note another glimpse of the tree!

Turn, see the living room from another angle. Left to right: architectural entry with cedar garland; the open door to the bath; and the second Alan cabinet, with eyebrow window on top~ From the entry on to the kitchen, this lumiere hangs at the hallway bar. R. Lalique - found in Angers, France
I've never used a pillar candle in it - the light should come from the bowl, but I did like how it looked~

Wishing you a simple, kind, and good Merry Christmas! More to show you, TERESA
