Nat­u­rally Rus­tic

Country Sampler - Christmas Decorating - - INSIDE - DE­SIGNED AND PHO­TOGRAPHED BY JENN FENTON OF 2BEESINAPOD.COM.

If you love dis­tressed fin­ishes, take a cue from this man­tel dis­play by Jenn Fenton of the mother-and-daugh­ter team at 2 Bees in a Pod. With the large hang­ing map as a back­drop, the col­lec­tion of smaller pieces in front of­fers loads of per­son­al­ity. Cre­ate your own gath­er­ing like this by lin­ing up a large metal snowflake and co­or­di­nat­ing red tin, a beat-up wood snow­shoe, a cloche ac­cent, a sea­sonal sign and a wood tree. Tuck sprigs of pine around the pieces for just the right amount of Christ­mas green.

IN­SIDER TIP Vin­tage snow­shoes can be pricey, but you’ll score a bet­ter deal if you search out sin­gles miss­ing their mate or dam­aged-but-stilldec­o­ra­tive pieces.
