Christmas at my house is a pretty big deal. It's my hubby's favorite time of the year, so between our love of the holiday and my love of decorating we have not one, but two trees that I do every year.
The tree in the Living Room has a bird theme.
There are several birdhouses wired into the tree.
I made each one just for this tree, and they get packed up every year.
There are also several birds nests on the tree. There is an old Christmas Legend that says that says anyone who finds a birds nest in the tree the bring home for Christmas will have good fortune and prosperity in the coming year.
Handmade paper ornaments with birds are all over the tree...
And I am in the process of making more of these little cuties too!
There are doves on the table and a silver bowl full of pretty glass ornaments.
This sits on my coffee table.
My garlands are one of my favorite parts of the decor. They are just dripping with crystal garland and glitter and glass snowflakes.
During the day the glass snowflakes sparkle from the sun, and at night the lights from the garland twinkle behind them. It's so pretty.
Here's a couple of night shots...
The Dining Room chandelier gets pretty makeover for the holiday too. The brown tranferware creamers that I usually have hanging there, gets replaced with cut glass Christmas balls.
I tuck in Christmas greens where ever I can. Unfortunately, it's so dry here I have to use artificial ones, because the real ones dry out too fast!!
See you in a few days!
