I started this blog just so I could make up words.
And you seriously didn't think I could avoid adding some sparkle to my holly days after last year, didja?
I mean, yeah, I stuck with my rustic theme, pinecones and greens and such
...but by golly I had to add some bling.
And when you find mercury glass accessories at 70% off,
well while I pondered for a nano-second, they just jumped right into my cart.
Then there were some sparkly glass pinecones kinda needing to show-off for their real-live counterparts.
See? How could I deny them the spotlight?
I had fun stringing all the pearly cream and brown ornaments together with a few random ones hanging alongside the pretty pinecones...
The room is all warm and glowy.
The wee hutch got some glittery goodness too.
(sneak peek of the tree too...)
I love those wee mercury glass pinecone ornaments in the apothecary jar.
I want to marry them.
Here's a few extra touches I added here and there.
Or hither and thither.
I think every room needs a touch of chocolate brown.
It's the new black, according to me.
Oh yeah, and out back I made a wee wintry vignette,
which is not very glittery, but awfully full of rusticness.
Here's the view from my kitchen
('nother peek at the tree...)
So that's the dining room.
Just need to fill those old windows with some sepia prints of all my kids.
Doing that hopefully tomorrow.
