Christmas Sneak Peek!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Now that it's over we can concentrate on our holiday decorating. That is just what I have been doing. As of yesterday, the Thanksgiving/Fall decor went away, and out came Christmas!!

Every year it changes a little bit. I am much more into the vintage look. I also like a lot of silver. I thought I would post a few shots of what I have done so far. It is a slow process. I have to walk around and place things in just the right places. Then I look at it for awhile to see if it makes the cut. (Crazy, I know)

I think my next few posts will be sharing my Christmas decorations with you. I have a lot more to show you.
I can't wait to see all of your decorations as well.

I also wanted to let you know that it is getting closer to my 100 post. I will be having a little giveaway. Can't wait for that!

Enjoy your Turkey Day leftovers!!

I'm doing it too - walking about and trying to decide what goes where as my look is changing too. Working in more neutral shades, but of course there are some colorful things I love so much I just can't part with them!
Yours look lovely so far.

By the way - do you know of any way to make silver/silverplate acquire that tarnished appearance quicker? I've bought a silverplated ice bucket which has been polished and I want it tarnished!! Thanks Rosemary.

I do the same thing, place something, look at for a while, tinker with it, maybe move it maybe not - it's all part of the creative process.

I love the silver platter with the ornaments! Can't wait to see all the other things you do!

Oh Rosemary, I love your vintage baubles displayed in your silver bowl. Mixing vintage ornaments and tarnished silver is one of my favorite displays for Christmas.

Look forward to seeing more!!

Genevieve Olsen said...

I have been much more vintage in thought lately too. But sadly I do not have the time right now to hunt the things I would like so I guess it will have to wait until next year!!!! I love your sneak peeks. How are the newlyweds????
I cannot wait to see all of your holiday magic!!!"See" you soon!!!!

Wanda said...

Very pretty! Looking forward to seeing more.

I know what you mean about walking around to find just the right spot. I do that too, but tend to just leave it there even if it's not "perfect". Just lazy, I guess.

Amy said...

Ohhh...that bird cage is DELICIOUS! And there is nothing I love more than a silver piece full of old ornaments! YUMMMMM
