Decking the Halls...

Today was the day,
the day I toted
 all the Christmas boxes downstairs...
 
 
I am intoxicated by glitter & sparkle,
and tired...



on Black Friday,
  I went to the final sale of a favorite retired antique dealer...
 
this tweet birdie bowl
was among the goodies
 I brought home....
 
I put it to work,
holding baubles and hooks...
 


it is time to fluff curls
and sprout wings...
 


I have the pink balls on the tree,
but there is much more to do...
 


 
even though my tree came pre-lit,
with mini-lights...
 
 I added a strand of C7's
 
I read this as a tip on Pintrest
and love the result,
it gives the tree that extra pop...
 

 
I am always
Dreaming of a White Christmas....

 
Let is Snow...
   
Today I am joining...
and
 
Thanks for visiting me today....

AAAhhhh... how pretty Bella.
I like the tip f putting a string of C7's to the pre lit tree. Might have to deconstruct and redo my big tree with a string.. I am imagining it will give it the vintage look I am desiring.
Cheers, Gee

Enjoy the decorating. I plan go get rid of many ornaments, mostly Hallmark dating back to the first ones, as husband died Nov. 10th and need to lighten my load.

The photos of your vintage ornaments are gorgeous, especially that aging angel (?) with her flossy hair. I bet she has a story to tell.

Cindy said...

Ok, so... now what are C7's, the larger lights? Your tree is wonderful! The perfect magical tree... with the flocking and the pink. I'm working on mine now, and will have to find some C7's whatever they are and add them! smile...

Those are such lovely baubles and sparkles, Bella. And I had to smile at your sheet music... I have that very same edition and always put it out at this time of year with my special Christmas books and pamphlets.
