While growing up our Christmas decorations went up fairly late. I didn't know people actually got in the spirit the day after Thanksgiving until I was an adult. I still don't do that, but now is the time my mind starts "decorating" and soon, all will be put into place and be festive. Since I am still in the "gathering" phase I thought it would be fun to see what is already up for this season.
Magnolia leaves are plenty here in the south...love the creativity of the giant shell with the gold ornaments that compliment the vase beautifully.
Silver is my favorite and I am quite fond of the mercury glass that is so popular now. I have started my own collection to mix in with other silver pieces.
I love these images that Tracery Interiors (visit blog here) posted of some work they have done in Birmingham, AL. Simple but welcoming.
One would not think that in the south there would be so many beautiful evergreens. I enjoy so much going out into my yard and cutting different varieties to bring indoors. Tracery Interiors did such a spectacular job...
I love these white branches adorned with ornaments...makes quite a nice statement.
Note the silver ribbon around the base of the candle mixed in with silver and hydrangeas.
A home in Canada with the beauty of winter through the window, a simple vase with evergreens. (the puppy looks like my grand-dog Erma!)
I am just loving the apple green color for the season!
I hope this sweet horse has her coat on! So tell me...what colors are you favoring this season? Do you like a fresh cut tree each year or one that lovingly gets put together each year? In the past we have gone and cut our own tree and when we cannot do that we support those that make a living growing trees. Snow is in the mountains nearby and cold is in the air...time to go make some hot chocolate!
