Dreaming of a White Christmas
I'm still dreaming of a white Christmas, but until that happens I will just have to create my own little wonderland. Are you ready for a decorating tour?
A beautiful vintage skate painted in London white and sprinkled with glitter brings back memories of when I skated as a little girl.
Adorned with ruffled lace, burlap, crinkled seam binding and a vintage pin.
This year I added some silvered glass balls in sea blue and went with a softer color palette. It gives the tree a Victorian vibe nostalgic of Christmas time in the mid-19th century.
I decided to 'dress up' the wrought iron mirror in our living room.
This swag hangs over my induction cooktop. Pine cones, German glitter glass and shiny ornaments add even more sparkle.
I added a frosty garland around my chandelier and dangled a few snowflake ornaments.
Mercury glass trees and an etched pillar holder light the way.
Silver baubles fill a white wrought iron basket.
Do you remember the cream lantern I decorated for autumn? Well, I decided to re-decorate it with a pearl and berry candle ring.
Sprigs of silver glittered leaves are tucked behind a burlap bow.
Glass jewel ornaments hang from a faux window while candlelight flickers.
Simple clear stones and pearls fill a hurricane topped with a snowflake pillar.
Silver sparkles ...
pretty pale blue ...
and glistening white.
About ten years ago we moved our Christmas tree into the sunroom. It was the only place in the house free from kitty paws! Cheops and his brother use to go crazy over the shiny ornaments. I really can't blame them.
I've turned the lights down low so you can enjoy the ambiance.
Do you see Cheops sitting under the tree?
