I think this is the week when I’m supposed to show you my Thanksgiving table. We are hosting Thanksgiving this year, but my table’s going to look pretty much how it looked last year and the year before that, so you don’t get a new post about that. It will look pretty much like this, only with different chairs:
So instead I’m popping in with a quick post about a quick Christmas project for the foyer, and it can also serve as a preview of my full Christmas tour that will be up next week (next week?! Wow. I should get working on that).
You might remember that these frames were holding prints of vintage horror movie posters for Halloween. I thought that maybe Dracula and the invading Saucer Men might not set quite the right tone for Christmas, though, so I looked around for something a little more festive to go in the frames.
I always print stuff like this on photo paper and set the quality to high, and it turns out really nicely. And I “matted” the music by mounting it on black cardstock.
That feather wreath (affiliate link) is actually one I ordered from Target for Halloween, intending to hang it on the front door. But then it turned out to be way tinier than I expected. I kept meaning to return, but then it sat around in the foyer for so long I got kind of attached to it, and eventually I realized it could work its way into our Christmas decorating instead.
The rolls of sheet music are also recycled from our Decomposing Composers Halloween theme. And everything else you see was already here….vintage ornaments, my little brass mouse collection, a few Dickens volumes from a set I got from my grandparents, and my beloved ceramic elves.
And with that, I’m off to hang out with family and eat a lot for the next few days. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
