Just a Few Quick Peeks

I have been working on getting my Christmas decorations out.  I started with my tree a few weeks ago because the forecast was calling for snow.  What better time to put up my tree, right?

The tree made that first snow perfect!  My two favorite things !

Just a little peeky poo...I'm trying my best to wait until after Thanksgiving to do a Christmas tour.

I am loving the small touches of blue this year!

I will say that I do not follow trends, the popular things that everyone seems to be into.  While I absolutely love whites and creams or what some call natural, I just can't do the switch!  I love my pink way too much to get rid of I just love pastels!

This beast is one of my favorites with just simple pine wreaths.  A little pop of color goes a long way sometimes too.

There are so many things that mean a lot to me.  The little white lighted Victorian house was my Aunt Linda's.  I painted it white last year and added silver glitter.  You'll see that I love so many different things....that's why Shabby Chic is my favorite way to decorate!

I try to use what I have...just giving it a new spin each year with a little paint or using it in non traditional way.

My new/old china from Goodwill and bowls from Dollar Tree are certainly looking good with my colors this year.  I love the pink and blue!

I started decorating downstairs....I wasn't going to put up this white tree this year but I couldn't resist!

Actually I put up 3 trees....I just love this time of year with decorating for Christmas!

And I am loving this vignette!  I thought of using an old bucket that I painted for this tree last year after I took down everything.  So this year I remembered to do is so cute!

I bought these really old skates over the Summer and painted them pink, then white.  I still have some more work to do on them, but I think they are gonna be beautiful when I get them finished. 

So there ya have a few little peeks at what I've been doing.  I hope you all come back after Thanksgiving for the Reveal...I hope I can wait that long!

  11. My sister, Jackie, hooked me up to your blog....luv, luv, luv it....But, oh my goodness, at the time and work you put into decorating Christmas...I was in retail for so very long and had to deal with Christmas for months,ordering, unpacking, displaying, etc. before the actual "day", so it lost some of it's luster in all the hustle...Hopefully, blogs like yours will get me inspired again to drag all of mine aren't home for Christmas any more so......anyway, thanks for your inspiration, such a great joy. God Bless you and yours this Christmas and may you never forget the reason for this season. Merry Christmas!!!
