Hi everyone! I finished the last of my trees and I'm ready to show you some living room photos. I still have a bit more to do and then that's it. Remind me next year to start earlier!
Above is my lovely faux mercury glass collection which I love and have out somewhere in my home all year round. I love all that shinyness.
It's quite easy to find them these days. Even Target has some (I'd wait for the after Christmas Sales). That's how I got most of mine. After Christmas Sales at various stores and catalogs over the past few years.
I put a real pointsettia in one of my white pitchers and I love how it looks. Hopefully it won't die because it has no drainage!
O.K. I love this! My thrifted chair, with my thrifted red pillows, on my cushion that I made myself!
Oh I had plans to make a banner! I have cute Christmas fabric that I was going to use. I just ran out of time so I bought this one at TJ Maxx. "Tis The Season"
I was going to add some stuff to it to make it cuter and then realized - that was crazy- I was crazy... and should leave well enough alone. I can't make everything! Again, remind me to start earlier next year.
I love my happy looking mantel with all my trees that I made! I'm not quite done but I wanted to show you the trees.
My rosette tree which I think would be perfect for Valentines day as well.
Some trees I decoupaged with Christmas scrapbook paper.
My red yarn tree with a pom pom on top.
These little trees with the polka dot bows are ornaments from Target. The red mercury glass toppers I got from TJ Maxx last year.
So I wanted to make a Christmas ornament wreath instead of putting up this "W" wreath like I do every year. This picture of it is from 2007. Well......
......only... I ran out of ornaments! Yes I did! It looks a bit odd in this photo, but it is fine when you look at it head on ( but not so great from other angles). So pretend the ornaments go all the way around on the outside! Thank you. I'll pick up some ornaments when I go to the Target after Christmas sale and finish it then. It's fine for now - it really doesn't look too bad in person.
I do have a few more things to show you which I will save for next week. I'm going to take a few days off as I am still trying to get back to the lovely people who stopped by for Rhoda's "Home for the Holidays" tour (which was a few posts back)! So be patient with me as I make my way around to everyone!
Have a wonderful weekend!
