I heart christmas

I love christmas time, it has a special feeling to it , listening to Christmas music, the red cups at starbucks and snow .My sweet friend Jenny from the barn gave me this Merry Christmas and I think it looks so pretty hanging on this very old picture that I just love. I really love how all the colors go together.
And of course the chandelier got the Christmas treatment, I went with blue,pale blue's and silvers. All old ones of course. I don't even own any new ornaments .

And the other chandelier has a few reproduction ornaments with one I made, it is the sheet music one in the back with old tinsel, this pretty hangs in the kitchen window.
And i couldn't help but add something to this Simply Shabby Chic Toile rose wreath that I love with a few of my favorite old Christmas cards and an old little bird. How is your decorating coming along??
Well a little slow on the tree part of it, but I do have the ornaments out, I just have to go get some more white lights before I hang these on my fake white tree. I love my fake white trees because every year when I was little we would go to Grandma's and she always had her fake white tree up with old ornaments and colored lights.

Hopefully next time you'll actually see these ornaments on the tree!!! I love to hear about your home and come by for a blog visit to see if you've posted any pics, let me know!

Hi Andrea,

Like you, my decorating is coming along slowly. No tree yet, maybe this weekend.
Your soft blues and whites are beautiful.

Love what you have done already! The ornaments are a feast for the eyes. I went to an estate sale recently, saw a basket of ornaments that had $1 - some vintage ones were peeking out among the newer ones, and I walked right by it to look at something else. Another lady got the basket and I've been kicking myself since!

You have some pretty ornaments there. Hope you have better luck with your white tree than I did with mine. Got it out yesterday and it has gone all creamy and discoloured. I have only had it 2 years. I think it has become discoloured on the side that faces the window. The joys of having the heat of an Australian Summer coming through the window onto my tree!! arghh!!!!
