Christmas Vignettes Part 2


Good Afternoon! I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday! What a gorgeous day it is! I wanted to share a few more Christmas vignettes today!
I set up a small tree on my vintage stack of luggage to raise it up and give it height, it is one of three trees in the room. I wanted the room to look like a wintery forest when I am all done, I still have a lot more to do!
One of the other trees is next to the front door on my green chippy fruit crate which is filled with Christmas goodies. The fruit crate is a perfect place to fill with party favors for people to grab when they head out after an evening of fun!

Look how it sparkles at night!
Like 99% of the furniture in my apartment, that wicker chair was a throw away that I painted. I love free!
I added a beautiful bird to the top. It's amazing how stacking this tree on luggage and a crate can make it seem much more grand than it normally would be on the floor. I purchased these trees a couple years back at Big Lots. They were 2 for $30 and they have this deal almost every year. They look fantastic on either side of a front door, that's where I will put them at our future villa!
I don't have a lot of space in my kitchen to do much decorating but I found some candied fruit in my stash and put them in my pedestal. It kind of reminds me of an oil painting. In the picture below I placed the antique decanter set my husband brought me back from Turkey in front. It looked festive to me.

Above, I found an antique Japanese buoy at a little shop in Sacramento for only $12! I have been looking for these everywhere! It reminded me of an ornament so it is perfect to keep out for the holidays.
These darling little pots and poinsettias above are from the 99 cent store! I just love the things that place has! If mixed with nicer things, you'd never know it was from there! I will be placing my large tree in the back corner where the palm tree is. What are your decorating and baking plans?
I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

    The process works the same as a photography class minus the darkroom
    setting. Nikon Digital camera price in India is easy
    matches to the cost and quality sensitivity of the crowd and relatively quite affordable.
