I added a few new elements to the Christmas decor today. Decided to add a small tree to the family room, that's where I watch TV at night, so I can see it's twinkle all the time. The big tree is in the living room, I only get to admire it when I am passing by. So I added this little one to the table with the Nativity.
I dressed it all in white with just a few of my book page angels.
which I posted how I make here
We have a white/ snowflake theme going on around the house this year, with lots of puffy white snow as a backdrop for just about everything, so whenI found some of those big white snowflakes I've been seeing around blogland, I couldn't resist adding a few to my windows for a wintry feel, in the dining room,
I love the golden glow outside on the bare tree branches today!
And more snow drops in the family room
And a few vintage additions
In the family room on an old basement window I found at the curb years ago with all broken glass.
.I had the busted glass replaced with mirrors, attached a shelf and distressed painted it all at least 10 years ago. It is still one of my favorite wall pieces in my house.
I love the old original locking hooks.
I usually have a few pictures on it and some roses garland but of course it has to get dressed for Christmas.
And on the dining buffet I added a couple little old cream cheese crates.
3 dollars!! I've learned to accept it's imperfection.
What struck me about these 3 crates is they all have different brand names, and it really surprised me because I thought Philadelphia brand Cream Cheese was the only one that made cream cheese!
I think they will add some nice vintage charm to my kitchen even after the Holidays, don't you?
And just a dab more bling in the family room, with some branches cut from the bottom of our real tree, , added to a shiny urn.
It's the most wonderful time of the year.
............well.... besides summer time!
