Mackenzie-Childs Christmas Tree in the Sunroom

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in our home. The tree in our sun room has taken on a Mackenzie- Childs theme. I used the same ornaments as last year, and added a few new ones with a snowman topper that I found at Cracker Barrel in September. It was the last one so I guess I was lucky since I rarely shop for Christmas decor in September. I made a scarf using mesh that comes on a roll.  

The tree is so tall with the topper that it is hard to get the entire hat in the photo.

I added this Pig in Boots from the Mackenzie-Childs Farmhouse collection to tree this year.

The Courtly Check boots and that buckle are too cute for words! It's all in the details ;o)

The red owl came from the Cracker Barrel store this year.

The felt doggie on the left is from the Mackenzie-Childs compliments line, and is a few years old.

I added some holly from the Dollar Tree that got a black and white checked makeover with duct tape. 

I hand painted little eggs in the Courtly Check pattern and added them to a Mackenzie-Childs nest from their Compliments line.

I added several Courtly Check ball ornaments, candles and enamelware pieces to the tree. The red dragonflies are for the owls to feast their eyes on.

This year I decided to give the hall stairs a holiday makeover. Joe cut out the houses from oak, and sanded them well, primed and painted. I added some bottle brush trees from my Dickens Village collection that I haven't put up yet.

Mackenzie-Childs does a wonderful job decorating their trees for the holidays. The photos above are from their New York City store, and I am looking forward to visiting during the Christmas break.
I get most of my Mackenzie-Childs items at the annual barn sale which is held in Aurora, NY in the summer. I'll let you know the date as soon as I know.

 I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.

    You and Joe did a great job on the little houses!!

  11. Debbie, what a treat to be able to see your tree. I love it and with that smashing MC table right by the tree it really makes a statement. Love the little collander, and the new pig is so cute.

(I've put on a couple of pounds!) What a gorgeous, gorgeous display!!! The ornaments are so unique and so fun. The pig is definitely my favorite, although the bird's nest is a close second. And you and I were thinking right along the same lines this year with our toppers! Gorgeous job, Debbie! I KNOW you are going to enjoy this holiday season!!!!!!
