Christmas Decor Ideas

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 when 
 I 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.
 I almost passed this little crate below by, because I didn't like the area where someone once almost painted it green, but I decided it was coming home with me anyway, at such a great price...
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!

  8. I love your little tree. I think I'm going to skip the big tree next year and just do a small one on my repurposed library table. Your book page angel is so pretty and I LOVE your salvaged window/mirror. It's stunning. Have a merry Christmas!
