A Treasured Georgia Christmas

December 11, 2013
Amanda has finished decorating her historical home in Fort 

Benning, Georgia.  You'll remember my visit there in October, 

when I shared my trip with you in my Thankful and Pleased post. 

She has incorporated treasures from the sea as well as the 

forests to bring a certain natural magic to the Season.

Starfish, silver baubles, pine cones and the glow of her frosted

Christmas tree make her sitting room a very special place to be.

Although she did not join us for Tis The Season tour, I was looking 

forward to sharing with you some of the ways in which she 

celebrates The Season with her young family. 

In creating her Christmas theme she combines natural elements with 

her own handmade creations.  It all begins with the simple elegance 

 of the natural grapevine Star on top of her petite Christmas Tree.

To her handmade Toile Christmas Stockings, hung by 

the chimney with so much love and care.  Her creativity 

and talent shine throughout her home.

The mantle decorated so effortlessly with her hand sewn

fabric Christmas Tree, mercury glass and clear glass ornaments 

nonchalantly placed in a clear glass cylinder.  

A beautiful oil painting over the mantle and the colors of the ocean 

and sky enhanced with the blue candle and the modge podge letter 

of her last name.  Just look at the gorgeous blue patina of the 


Carefully placed keepsakes and Christmas treasures 
reflect the 

beauty and joy of adding natural elements to home decor.  

A Tis The Season treasury of what makes Christmas special in her

Georgia home.

  12. Jemma,
    This house is decorated so nice because many of the items are handmade, and that makes it special, indeed. I love the mercury glass and ornaments. I have seen them around a lot this season. The fabric tree on her mantle is sweet. How nice to mix a little bit of nature in the d├ęcor.

    I had a great time with the blog tour, Jemma, and I want to thank you for inviting us to join in.

    Have a peaceful weekend, dear.
