To create the quaint and charming homespun Christmas room I used Park Place English Study Set (Hunt for the Bells item, desk & chair with ottoman not shown) and Follow Us Sugar Snow Christmas Tree, Christmas Ginger Socks Fireplace, Santa’s Cookies & Milk Tray, Plum Pudding Sleigh, Christmas Wreath, Thanksgiving Cart, and Snowglobe Teddy (Hunt for the Bells).  The whimsical Follow Us Sugar Snow Christmas Tree with gingerbread men is one of my favorite Christmas trees presented this year, available in frosted and evergreen variety making the room cozy and warm.  To accent the style, I used exclusives found at the Expo including: Park Place animated snow globes in mason jars, Spyralle Folk Art Christmas Tree (Frost Green) & Christmas Black Enamel LanternTrue North Designs Small Poinsettia Bowl, PurpleMoon Seasonal Mesh Owl Xmas Spirit (Hunt for the Bells), and House of Avro Christmas Wreath with Bells. To finish the room, I added La Galleria Christmas Plaque w Bow (**free**), Park Place Words for All decorative accessory, and Serenity Styles Winter Rug.  There are over 95+ creators on 8 sim offering everything from fashion, jewelry, poses, home, and breedable friends.  After a long day styling the homespun room, I sat down to read a book while wearing Ever An’ Angel  Elegant Angle Gown in Cranberry and Purple Moon Cycle Set in Emerald & Topaz Jewelry (Hunt for the Bells).  Hope the homespun styling gives you inspiration and you head over to the SL Christmas Expo to spend lindens for a great cause.
