Deck the Halls

I've been decking my rooms with garlands decorated with fruit and birds.  I usually do my dining room in all white, but this year I decided to use the traditional colors of green and red.  I started with the dining room. . . .

A Tasha Tudor Christmas Celebration

In 2011 The Historic Odessa Foundation in Odessa, Delaware had a wonderful exhibit called A Joyful Tasha Tudor Christmas.  The curator did an excellent job of capturing the look and feel of a Tasha Tudor Christmas.  The exhibit was set up in the Wilson-Warner House (1769).  In several of the photos I will point out the items that are reminiscent of Tasha's home.

The creche in the bread oven, the tin oven, stockings hung from the mantel, the tea service, spinning wheel, loom-woven coverlet, lustreware tea set, and candles. . . .
