see our winning tschotke! megan's christmas stick


Thanks to those who entered our Unique Holiday Tschotke Contest! The winner is Megan from Cincinnati, OH’s and her innovative Christmas stick. Here’s how she describes it: “It’s a branch I found in the back yard and wrapped in wool yarn. It’s a great way to display ornaments without having to lug a heavy tree into the house.”

(Behind it, you may be intrigued, as we were, by those cute cat paintings on the wall. “That’s my collection of vintage Paint-by-Numbers, ” explains Megan. “I find them on eBay all the time. I only collect that one cat from 1969. I think I’m up to 10.”)

Congratulations Megan! Your copy of Judith Miller’s Decorative Arts is on its way. Stay tuned for the next Shelterrific giveaway — coming up tomorrow!

Yes, there was a similar stick in Domino in a larger room shot. I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off, but I’m very happy with how it turned out.

I’ve only lived in my house for a little over a year and I’m still working on decorating and fixing it up. Thanks for the complement Mary!

congrataulations megan!
