My friend Phyllis always brings me a poinsettia at Christmas time. I nestled it within a bed of greens, pinecones and baby’s breath on my front porch.

Right next to the poinsettia I covered an old white wicker Victorian chair with greens, pinecones, baby’s breath and tea roses.

Today I am working on a tree topper comprised of vintage elements. I am two teardrop ornaments short so a trip to the thrift shops is in order so that I can reveal this year’s tree. It’s now finished, go HERE.

It all looks so pretty, Laura! I love those ornament wreaths. I'll look forward to your tutorial. I'm so afraid one will fall off and break! Love all your white dishes. I just saw some nice ones at the dollar store yesterday.

It all looks so nice Laura.

Sue said...

Everything looks so cute and festive. Wish I had creativeness when it comes to decorating. I am lucky if I can get my tree to look at least like someone other then a toddler decorated it. Love looking at your inspirations.

Me thinks you're having waaaaay too much fun pretty lady. Well, you remind me of a pixie, so I guess it's all in character for you. See ya soon for finishing your project.

Love ya'

How pretty! I look forward to seeing that finished wreath and the ideas for gifting baked goods. My daughters and I always make a ton of Christmas cookies to give and need new ideas for packaging them!

I love week-long parties, especially the ones I'm invited to! HA! Can't wait to see!

Connie said...

Everything does have that magical touch. My husband was just talking about the magic he felt as a child at Christmas and how he wanted it back. That is why this year instead of gifts to one another we are both planning a Christmas date-night,to surprise each other with :)

Have a lovely day, and do come visit, and enter my Give-away.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Here is the link to my snowflakes you had made a comment on. They really are very easy to make and you can make them big or small. You can use whatever kind of paper you want. Just make to your hearts content. I think you son would enjoy making them.

Just like the rest of the year, I love your Christmas decorating style. I hope to have time to come back and see how you did the wreath. What you show looks wonderful.

And I'm interested in how you're gifting your goodies, too.
