Like I mentioned before, this year I really tried to keep my decorations simple , not fussy , but just my favorites. I really love the vintage patinas of the silvery & gold ornaments --some truly vintage ,many just made to look that way. We get loads of full sun in our house-therefore the dark tones just don't seem to fit.... so many white Christmas themed vignettes...no shocker there! This year I hung just a simple live wreath over the mantle in front of a couple old chippy frames...I hope to add some live spruce and little white candles this weekend.
My favorite picture of my mom in santa's lap from the 50's. I did a little digital restoration of the photo, printed in on inkjet canvas and then added a little white glitter...so sweet!
A few things in the kitchen....
More soon ---and a big yippie for Helio & Julianne! They are so much fun to watch--she is an amazing dancer and so gorgeous and he has the sweetest personality --i so enjoyed watching the two of them dance together!
Have to add my favorite Santa picture of my girlies
...obviously an old one but of course what would a truly fabulous Santa picture be if the baby wasn't flipping out!!
& yes she has recovered & loves the jolly ole' fella!
