Crocheted dolls that my godmother gave me over 20 years ago ~ when my daughter was just a baby.  She used to walk around with these clutched under her arms at 2.

Vignettes to be.  Glitter is messy!  These are my trees.

I have just a few bits of greenery to add in here and there, but I think I’m done!   Are you done or do you keep adding and tweaking until the day?

I love all your red, white, silver. That's what I'm decorating with this year too. Your trees are glitter-rific. I'm making some, hopefully today. I think I decorate till Christmas Eve.

Girl I am loving those big peppermint sticks! That whole vignette is just so much fun.
I think glitter has become my new makeup. I can't seem to get rid of it so I am embracing it!

Wow you have been busy. I am so behind on the decor part. The tree is up but still bare. I love the candy sticks they remind me of Swedish Plokagris. The trees look GREAT! I would be afraid of that much glitter. I tend to get it everywhere even when only using a little. The dolls are precious. So nice to be able to decorate using items with meaning.

Mage said...

WoW! Those are gorgeous vignettes. The silver bells with silver candle holder are perfect. I love the side table, the way you tie the ribbon as a decor to your white lampshade with bunch of red flowers under, it looks wonderful! Great decor!

I like your vignettes a lot because you're kept them pretty but so simple. Tis the season when it's sometimes easy to confuse more with good. Jane F

Pamela said...

I so want to be done, but tweaking seems to win! Your space is so beautiful. I had a bridal shower and used ribbon to dress up the candles. I wish I would have thought of the scrapbook paper. Loved the Santa hat on the hall tree.

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh Kathy,
This is pure "heaven" over there!!! I love it all!!! And I love the bow on your lamp and that pillow on your sofa. It all looks so incredibly beautiful!!!
