A Colonial Christmas

Last week, I (Teri) spent the week in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. One of the highlights of the week was strolling down the brick sidewalks, enjoying the beautiful home decorations and wreaths. I thought you might like to see some of them, so I'd like to invite you to talk a walk down the street with me. 

Everything used was natural: feathers, fruit, seashells, wheat, seed pods, nuts. Each home had a wreath, as well as the colonial establishments. Often, the wreaths reflected something about building it decorated.

The Apothecary worked here. Nested within the seashells are vials of botanicals used for healing.

I loved this creative "pineapple"!

As you can imagine, the milliner worked in this building.

Ice skating, anyone?

And a happy Hanukkah!

I love my coffee, so I thought this one was a lot of fun!

This one makes me hungry.

At the barber and wigmaker's establishment, you'll see a comb tucked in the wreath, but don't miss the curls on either side.

Kara and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for joining us on our journey this past year. We appreciate you, our readers, and we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 


  1. Thank you. I had to share. You are beautiful. Happy holidays.

  2. Some very creative people out there isn't there. It would of been a very enjoyable walk viewing all the homes with their wreaths proudly displayed.

    1. It was a wonderful walk! So glad you were able to virtually enjoy it with us.
