No more putzing. No more restlessness. No more waiting for 2020 to pass farther by…
I’m not quite ready to put up trees; still some big things to shuffle for the season.
So I started with the mantle. This is the second year for our expanded collection of Dept 56 All Through the House series
Adding to last year, I made a mantle cover and covered the display shelves. I repurposed some old holiday tables cloths to do so.
The mix of patterns is something I always like to push in holiday decorating.
The three raised platforms are on turntables to display interior/exterior or room-to-room details of the clever double-sided set pieces in the series.
The remaining platform is mostly to extend the stage forward.
Remaining to do: redesign the back wall risers for the stair/banister and upper floor pieces.
