I did a few changes to some of my Christmas decor to share with you.  I also found these amazing luminara candles that look just like a real flame.  Love them.  Enjoy.




I put a tree in one of my old vintage watering cans from the garden.  I love taking something so ordinary and making it into a unique tree stand for this pencil Christmas tree.  The chippy little garden bench is from my garden too.  A few white ornaments that have a garden theme and this made a cute garden Christmas tree for my entry way.


Took this believe sign and added some greenery with little white lights and it really makes this old chippy window look pretty for Christmas on my buffet.

These are those candles I mentioned.  I found them at Brookstones.  They smell wonderful and they flicker like a real candle.  The picture does not do these little beauties justice but trust me these are better than the real thing.

The actually flicker just like a real candle.  So pretty.


Just love how they give off a vanilla christmas cookie scent and they flicker like a real candle.  So ingenious these new "pretend" candles.

  1. I would love to find those candles...there is no BROOKSTONE around here...but I'm sure someone else would carry this...Your CHRISTMAS DECOR VIGNETTE is breathtaking gorgeous...I'm sure it's even prettier in person! Do I remember reading where you have a Christmas tour of homes on your street? If you don't...you should start one!!! Can't wait to see more...I am getting inspired! Roxie

    1. Hi Roxie,
      You can order them on line too from Brookstone. I think they have free shipping right now. They were the cheapest. I have seen these in smaller gift shops but they were very expensive in the smaller stores so I was happy to find them at Brookstones. We do not have a Christmas House Tour in our neighborhood but that sounds like fun. I loved your pink post.

  4. Absolutely beautiful. I have not found any of the luminaries that actually look real, let alone smell nice, so that was a great find! Your angel is the last picture is so lovely!

  6. I am loving seeing your christmas decorations so far! You know I am such a fan of your decorating, I love the idea of putting the tree in "something" instead of just on the floor. Hmm, I may have to do this! Thanks for sharing.....

  10. Hi Kris! She is gorgeous! I am so happy that Paula's angel brought you yours!....well, and that wonderful husband of yours and Kathy too! :)
    You know...I also have a darling angel that I purchased from Kathy...about 5 years ago...I don't think that I have ever shown her on 52 Flea so I will have to do that!
    Your home is beautiful and I have enjoyed this post. Will take a further look around now. Thanks for reaching out to me. I will be visiting Paula tomorrow...her home is already decorated for Christmas...a certain magazine is paying a visit soon...shhh! :) Laura

    1. I loved that post you put up with Paula's house. I am sure many magazines would love her home at Christmas. So beautiful. I get mine done early too. There is something about these great angels Cathy makes. I am so drawn to this one. I can't wait to see yours on your site.
