The Wimpole Christmas 2019 has a fun Georgian twist, including dressing up hats, bonnets and wigs … to encourage participation.

    So festive! I think my favorite is the fireplace arrangement – a great idea for ones that are no longer lit. (I put a Peace Lily in the one in my first apartment.)

    It’s a little overwhelming, that place — but I love the reindeer! I do like that arrangement in the fireplace; the colors are especially festive.

    • The reindeer get a little TLC each year, but that allows for some fresh playing with materials for the antlers and tails. In fact, I copied their design for 12 inch versions at home. 🙂
