~ The Decorated House ~ Christmas 2012

If you listen closely
You can Hear the
Angels Singing.
A pretty Mercury Glass container filled with fresh cedar, 
dusted with glued on faux snow,
& a simple White Candle.
Little snowflakes made of felt.
Bleached Bottle Brush Trees & Small Mercury Glass Ornaments.

Seeking Light & the Goodness Of Life
Brings a Joy in Simplicity
White, Mercury Glass, Lights and More Light.
Vintage books covered in simple white paper
topped with a lovely
Mercury Glass Crown.

And still the Joy of a Little Sparkle
Mercury Glass & Snowflakes
Wonderful Mercury Glass Christmas Tree
with a Star on top on the other side.

And a touch of babies breath
simple Silver & Mercury Glass Balls

The pretty Mystic Crown Nest
with a candle
is on the Entry Table this year.

Watching the Dancing Lights
are the bottle brush Dogs
Vintage Style Snowmen.

This year the entry table is
dressed in a very Whimsical Winter Fashion.
 Bleached bottle brush trees made to look like the little dogs 
and the Natural Bottle Brush Wreath.
A Silver Glittered Reindeer to 
dance in the center of the wreath
with lights tucked in behind it.

White and Bright by
 the Light of Day.

Tall glass container holds some white sparkly
tinsel to hide the stems inside.
Peasant feathers, Glittered Sparkly Branches,
Old White & Silver Ornaments
fresh Fir Greens.

Merry Christmas!
Happy  Holidays
May Peace be with You

See Y'All Soon~

  4. Oh my Donna!!!!! It is sooooooo beautiful and festive!!! Love all the white. When I saw the picture of the white wreath it dawned on me that I have a wreath like that but have no idea where it is! I do have about 4 boxes of Christmas that I didn't put up this year so it must be in one of those- makes me want to go digging and find it now!!

    Merry Christmas
