is wrapped around a stack of old books held to­gether by branches of green­ery along with a can­dle in a Scan­di­na­vian can­dle­holder and a key. Mar­got painted large pinecones with white spray paint to give them snowy ap­peal and placed them un­der the tree. • AN­TIQUE CHRIST­MAS fig­ures are cozy and safe in­side an old bell jar. “The Santa Claus and bells were made with cot­ton wool in Ger­many at the be­gin­ning of 1900,” says Mar­got. “The baubles in the tiny tree are made of real glass. It’s all very old and pre­cious. After Christ­mas, I put them care­fully in a box and keep it on top of a cab­i­net in our bed­room to make sure noth­ing will hap­pen to it.” The other bell jar is hous­ing an old Bible wrapped up with lace rib­bon and old mu­sic pa­per. • THE CHIM­NEY was made by Harm us­ing spe­cial stones with a vin­tage look. Mar­got gave them a patina to add ex­tra au­then­tic­ity. Two old iron or­na­ments are set be­hind the wood stove for added char­ac­ter. When the fire’s not burn­ing, Mar­got puts can­dles in the stove to “see some light be­hind the doors.”
