...boughs of holly

...hello dear readers!!

I have been squeezing a little holiday decorating in between my days in the studio
as I am sitting here sipping my hot chocolate,
I thought you'd like to hum this tune along with me...

think of it as caroling in the land of odds!!
come on ~
I know you know this tune...

Deck the halls

with boughs of holly

 fa lalalalaaa


I was over the moon ~ elated
when I spied the butter cream flower stems at Michael's
and ecstatic that they were 40% off
I simply love the crystal dew drops...
the next picture is my white mistletoe kissing ball
hanging in my entry way,
ALL who enter will feel the love...
NO ONE will escape!!

here is where I will be putting our tree this year

and yes, this was originally done in blue silk panels
this is just more ~ ME!!

a paper doily pom-pom close up.
I have a strand of these for the fire place too:)

I have to put the lights up yet,
but this is how it looks so far...
see the holy candles??!!

if you missed that tutorial on how to make your own,
simply just visit this post

ooohhhh, preeeetty!!

I put up "twinkle lights" on my doll house,

well sort of!
it is really just a strand of rhinestones
and tiny prisms!! 
they twinkle in the right light ~ LOL!!!! 

 a tiny fairy greets all who visit here!

in this lace covered vintage canning jar
a single paper white bulb is tucked inside...

this candle holder has
MANY bulbs!!

Paper Whites are my most favorite wintertime flower
and I scatter them  all through the house!!
I simply adore their scent...

a looking glass filled with sparkly pretties
((do YOU have a looking glass??!))
sitting atop my most favorite magazine
Jeanne d'arc Living...

I know you have seen this before,
after all
 they were the inspiration of my theme and holiday color scheme this year!!

this is my front entry way table...

a silver tray of more pretties is there to delight your eyes when you walk in...

and my cement swan carries a bouquet of white roses!!

This is just a sprinkle of holiday cheer with my magic wand,  
I haven't even pulled down the Christmas boxes yet!!

but for now
this delights my heart!

I will be sharing this with Kathleen's
