It's hard to believe that just five short days ago we were experiencing our first snow of the season. If you looked out my window today you would think otherwise. The weekend was filled with the sounds of ambulances as people tried to remember how to drive on slick, icy roads.
I thought you might enjoy some Christmas decorating photos. I took a bunch this weekend so I could show you what I've been up to. These pictures are of my dining room. The color scheme centers around the red and cream dog toile wallpaper (yes, I said dog). My tree is mostly black, red and cream and is made up of hats and fancy gloves, little tiny purses and various shiny, beaded trinkets. There is a full shot of the tree at the end of this post.
Even the doll house gets a wee tree at Christmas. Mother is busy baking for the holidays. I think she might need an apron so she doesn't get that fancy dress dirty.
There is much to do about glitter on the sideboard. Sparklie snow people shimmer against the backdrop of Christmas sheet music, all reflected off the vintage mirror they stand on.
The snow owl watches over the proceedings, a bit suspiciously if you ask me. Not to worry, there's no flying allowed in the house.
Oh, how I love Christmastime. I'll be back tomorrow with more photos of this room and then we'll walk through the "Pretty Room", if I haven't bored you to tears. Monday morning blessings from winter wonderland!
