Anyway, there is another party that I'm a-linking up to so I have to share with you all some of my vignettes. Boy, do I have them. Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality is hosting, so come on over and play Tom the Peeper with me and check out some of these ideas.
I have lots and lots, so I am organizing them into categories and I will try not to talk too much. We'll see how that works out for me.
I explained here how I got that little plate stuck in the middle of the larger one.
These sweet reindeer I painted using my kiddos' hands to make the antlers.
Next, and largest group, are the vignettes with ornaments.
I have them hanging from the banister:
I have them hanging from lamps:
I pile them into bowls and other containers:
Along with some mercury glass ornaments, I have some ping pong balls that I painted "HO" onto.
I was so excited when I had the idea, I didn't even want to cover the black writing that was on one side of the balls because I would have to wait for paint to dry. I just turned the balls so you couldn't see it!
I also scatter ornaments, and other things, on top of the kitchen cabinets:
I like to think that most of my decorating involves greenery, lights, and stuff that I use most of the time(plus some ornaments here and there) instead of having to change out my entire house when December rolls around.
Here are some ways that I add greenery to put Christmas around:
We're almost done...here are some of my favorites sights around my house.
This is the view on the wall as you go downstairs:
This sits on my kitchen island. I fell in love with that gygo ornament (imagine that) and had a moment of inspiration the other night about where to put it.
You can also see my roman shades in the background that have inspired my new hints of blue.
I went pretty simple on the dining room table. Just a favorite nativity scene and some more greenery, all set on a tray:
Last, but certainly not least, is what I think is my favorite vignette this year. This one sits on top of my china cabinet. While I have more pieces to the Willow Tree nativity set, I just went simple with Joseph, Mary and Jesus and set them under a glass cloche.
I'm also joining up here, come see!
Thanks for stopping by again!
