Deck the Trees with Sparkly Stuff

Well, the plans were to take full length photos of my two Christmas trees and post them.    However, those photos did not turn out so I went to plan B which is to post pictures of ornaments on said trees.

The tree located on the sun porch has mostly bird ornaments on it.

Oops.  Someone forgot to pull the warning tags off the lights.

Santa even made a few appearances.



I love the lines on this Santa’s face.    He looks like he has been around the world a few times in an open sleigh.


The rotating tree in the family room is an angel and crystal snowflake tree done in shades of white.   All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Let the Flakes Fall Where They May

Today is my birthday and my husband outdid himself this year!!  He knows how much I love anything chippy with the paint flaking off and when he gave me this planter and plant stand I was blown away.  They look right at home on my back porch next to a chippy chair that belonged to my parents.



I filled the plant stand with magnolia leaves, pine cones, and moss covered sticks from the yard.   Still trying to decide what to put in the planter.


I gifted myself with this precious little winter bird and mossy nest that I found on sale at Trees N Trends.   The bird and nest was set in a bowl that was a TJ Maxx find this past summer and was surrounded by a miniature pearl garland to give the illusion of snow.


Thank you for sharing my birthday with me!


I will be joining the following parties:

Mod Mix Monday @ Mod Vintage Life

Nifty Thrifty Tuesday @ Coastal Charm

Signs of Christmas

Signs of Christmas are scattered throughout my home.   I would love to share a few of them with you.

Deck the halls with boughs of pine cones .   Fa la la la la, la la la la.


I believe.


“Imagine all the people living life in peace”…John Lennon


Peace on Earth.   Good will towards men.


Joy to the World!


I wish you a Merry Christmas.


Thank you so much for visiting.
