Bringing in the Christmas Greens....

There are only a few days left until Christmas...
 
this year,
I waited to bring in the greens,
the smell of fresh pine and cedar,
the icing on the Christmas cake...
 
 
I added a few sprigs to all my chandeliers...
 
on this one I clipped on a couple glass birds
that I bought at the Christmas shop

 
roses for the table...


with a bit of cedar tucked in...
 


I dressed up the over mantle,
in the dining room...
 
it's another non-working fireplace,
I'll be showing you more about it next month....
 






 
my Winter Wonderland,
under glass...


 

to my complete excitement
we are having some light flurries of snow,
and may have a White Christmas!
 
Are you Dreaming of a White Christmas?
 
 
Tonight I am joining....
and
 
Thanks for stopping by....

Bella, everything is so gorgeous! I love your fancy non-working fireplace. It may not produce heat but the style of it 'works' for me! The decor - flowers, greenery, candles etc. are so pretty. Have a Merry Christmas! Blessings, Pamela

Even if you don't get the snow, I think the winter wonderland under glass would be inspiring.
I like the birds on the chandelier, they look right at home there.
Merry Christmas,

Your greens look beautiful, Bella. The perfect touch for the romantic winter white throughout your lovely home. I love bringing greens into the house: holly, trailing ivy, juniper, andromeda. I hope you had a beautiful Christmas and that your house was frosted with snow.
