A Work in Progress....

I've fallen behind
in my Christmas decorating...
 
It's a work in progress...
 
a labor of love...
 
 
I enjoy each layer...
 
this is as far as I have gotten...
 
I want to add some pine sprigs,
and some snow...
 



this year I plan to keep the colors
in the parlor very quiet...
 



except for a pop of PINK....
 


I just made this wreath,
from vintage glass ornaments...
 
it took me all year to collect enough...
 
I will share a tutorial for it next week...
 


lights out....
 
except the Christmas Tree
which is up but naked...
 

 
sparkle...
 

 
and reflection...
 

 
I will be back soon with a room tour
 and tree reveal...
 
I even have a pink tree
in the bedroom,
I can't wait to share...
 
I'll be joining...
 
Thanks for stopping by...

Do you know how long it takes me to look at your pictures? If you did, you would consider calling the police, and reporting me as a stalker!!! You've decorated your mantle so beautifully, Bella. It's so simplistic...yet so grand!!! You amaze, and inspire me woman!!

Well it is just beautiful! I have added more petal pink baubles to my all white sitting room. I like the softness pink brings to Christmas. I like a naked tree...mine is barely dressed with just a few baubles.

It is all so beautiful and soft and calm...I love your snow flake in the window...Is that a new one or a vintage one? So pretty!

Hi Bella, I absolutely love the Christmas wreath that you made out of vintage ornaments! Sooo... pretty! I wonder how many ornaments you needed to complete it. Your parlor looks so cozy with all the Christmas decoration up the warm Christmas lights on. I want to move right in :-)!Wishing you a wonderful week!

This is beautiful Bella! Your blog was the one that inspired my snowy cottage Christmas dining room this year.
I loved it when you hung the icicles in you doorway.

Sherrie featured you at The Charm of Home. I love your mantel. The shot of pink is fabulous against all the white and neutral. So glad she showcased you!

Your parlor is so beautiful, Bella! I love the touch of pink on that gorgeous wreath you made, and the glittering reflection of your tree. So simple and yet full of enchantment. I'm a bit behind, too, but am hoping to decorate a bit more over the next few days, indoors and out. Wishing you the merriest Christmas and a blessed New Year.
