Hope your week end is a good one. Very cold here in the Chicago Land Area. Ughh! We got our first snow. Coming way to fast for me. I guess it does get you in the mood to decorate!
Here are a few more sneak peaks at the red I am adding to my whites and neutrals for Christmas Decor.
|My Angel is adorning the top of the Christmas Tree.|
|I added a little bling to her wings with these star ornaments I got at Tattered Tiques Christmas Open House.|
|Love these angel wings I got from the Halloween store after Halloween for $5.|
They make for a nice little addition to my chandelier.
|I added some of my crystal chandelier ornaments to the bottom of my chandy. I felt it needed a little bling to go with the angel wings above.|
|I am loving just adding a little red here and there for my Nordic look. I am liking how the Christmas Decor is coming along. |
I will be sharing the whole completed Christmas Decor over at Pamela's My Front Porch to Yours How I found My Style Christmas Decor on December 7th. So for now just a few sneak peaks as I continue to tweak and change things up.
I know a lot of you are starting this week too. Happy Decorating.
OK now for a sweet story and thank you to share with you on this Sunday.
I was telling my friend Vera a story about my Outside Fall Decor from last year. In my garden bike I had some burlap and lace liners and then some pumpkins and fall decor in the baskets of the bike.
One Day I came home from running errands and I noticed that someone had taken out the burlap and lace lining I had in the baskets. They left all the other stuff just took the lining.
I thought why would someone just take the lining?? Too weird and I kind of let it go. The leaves were still thick on the trees and falling.
Later on in the month when all the leaves were down from the trees I was coming home again and looked up in the tree to see my resident squirrel's nest up in the oak tree. Yep! I think you know where my burlap and lace linings went!!!!!!! The squirrel thief took my linings and made a beautiful condo for himself up in the old oak tree. I could not be mad as I thought wow that is the prettiest squirrel nest I have ever seen. Just made me smile all winter long and it was a long long winter!!!!!
Vera at Row Homes and Cobblestones saw this cute ornament and she said it reminded her of my cute squirrel story and she wanted to send it to me.
Is he not the sweetest!!!
So now when I am on my computer I will see this special little squirrel that Vera gifted me. Thank you sweet friend for this wonderful sweet remembrance but most of all thank you for the sweet friendship you have gifted me in blog land. Have a wonderful week everyone.
