And my santas.........
And more santas..........
And you saw the mercury glass, here:
NOW - for the new stuff -
Here is my snowman collection...........
And another little winter scene..........
And a cute santa my then 12-year old (NOW 13 year old) clone painted.........
Some greenery and old christmas tree lights in a silver bowl.........
And the stockings hung by the
chimney, stairs with care.
And our tree .........
I would love to have a second tree (fake) for the front of the house.
But that will just have to wait for another year or two.
Meanwhile, here are some close-ups of a few of my favorite ornaments.
In my opinion, fresh greenery is KEY!
This may not photograph very well, but I love putting magnolia in the chandelier.
This is my kitchen table lighting - I use the same ornaments tied together with the same ribbon, every year.
And here is a little fresh boxwood in some silver mint julep cups.
Another "key" is simple round ornaments.
Here, I have combined the two (fresh greenery and ornament balls) with some pinecones in a trifle dish I rarely use for food because I always forget it is in the cabinet.
