Christmas at the Newport

by brae  

After seeing several holiday inspired dollhouse scenes, I decided to go ahead and put one in the Newport even though the house itself is far from complete.

Michael's was having a 50% off sale on their Lemax Christmas  items, so I bought what equates to an 8ft blue spruce to set up in the study.  It came with a snow mound for a base, but I planned to cover it with a tree skirt and presents.

Michael's also had ornaments and strands of garland by Merry Minis.  I used a mini star ornament as the tree topper.  The lights are by Dept. 56, and I bought those on eBay.  I made the tree skirt and gifts.

The afghan is another venise lace creation.  The winter scene backdrop outside the window is an image called Winter Landscape and Trees by Icefront that I printed from Crestock.com and taped to a board to hold it in place.

On the bookshelf are some of the Christmas cards I printed.

I made the Christmas wrap.  I bought a bag of random minis from craigslist, and the grocery bag was part of the loot.

The garland on the mantel is from HBS; I added the red ribbon bows and cards.

The room itself is still incomplete but coming along nicely.  I will continue to put things together and perhaps add some more Christmas décor before Santa comes.  :D
