Tis the Season!


Little Trees, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

Time for a little Christmas decorating! The weekend after Thanksgiving was always when I got all the decorations out. The past few years that tradition has fallen by the wayside due to all the travel back and forth to see the family and my ever changing work schedule. This year, though Thanksgiving weekend is past, it isn't long gone and I've gotten the boxes out of storage and started decorating yesterday!

Christmas Candles
Each year, the same elements get put together in a slightly different fashion. Once upon a time, I decorated mostly with red, but these last few years, the red items languish in the bottom of the bin while shades of green and white take the stage. I find this natural palette soothing and peaceful.

China Cabinet 2010
The top of the china cabinet is one of my favorite places to decorate. The mirror is there year round, though the rest of the decor changes with the seasons. The little faux tree comes out each Christmas, this year decorated with tiny green and white ornaments and little glass drops that add a bit of sparkle.

Sweet Feathery Bird
A new addition to the ornaments is a set of tiny white glass birds with feathered tails. So sweet!

Angel with Garland
Angels grace the top of the bookcases.

Shepherds and sheep
The top of the cubby-hole shelf displays my growing collection of sheep as well as a shepherd and my beloved "Peace on Earth" figure from Willow Tree.

Golden Bird Wreath
In the entry way, I've hung my crazy quilted Christmas banner as well as this twiggy wreath with golden birds.

Woodland St Nick
A woodland themed St. Nick stands on the entry table. There are still a few things to put out and I'm sure that things will get tweaked here and there over the next few weeks!

I have to get going and get things out at my place, you have inspired me. My favorite is your little faux tree. I have such a tiny space I get a little down every now and then and when I see what you do in your space it encourages me. Thank you so much for your BLOG I know it takes a lot of time and I really appreciate it!! Mary
