More snow and Christmas decorations
Another snowstorm this week and a shot of my neighbor's barn. I love the red against the snow.
More snow scenes.
I'm continuing to decorate, probably overcompensating for the lack of decorating last year when I moved in December. I have so many Christmas trees in the condo you'd think I was holding my own festival of trees event. This one is in the hallway.
My French themed top of the bookcase vignette. An Eiffel Tower clock from Ebay (a present from my sister), grate from Home Goods, and a fleur de lis topped tree from an antique store, prelit garland from QVC.
Fluer de lis wreath hanger from Painted White and a wreath from Michael's. The wreath was plain with just a plaid bow. I brought the wreath to my friend Beth and I gave her a child's tea set I bought at Sage Farm last week. I asked her to put the set on the wreath for me. I knew she could make it beautiful and she did. I love the silky ivory bow and the mini tea things are adorable.
Remember the feather tree from a previous post? I added a little bling with some silver strands. I think it looks a little better now.
This is a reprodcution of a vintage sign. I bought it last year at a store called Valentine's in Lexington.
A bit more bling for the doorknob. i bought this piece in Beverly last Summer.
Now to the main tree in the living room, it's a small 4 foot prelit tree several years old from QVC. Notice the skate ornament. There's always skate ornaments on the tree.
I like how this ornament reflects the light.
Gotta have at least one cat ornament on the tree.
This Santa has the coolest robe. Green corduroy with faux fur trim. He came from BJ's Wholesale Club many moons ago.
Vintage ornaments and more prelit garland. Again a clock, this time it's faux, nestled into the greenery. What's with all the clocks? I think it's telling me to finish up with the decorating and start focusing on the baking.
