I love to put up a tree in the dining room because the window faces the front of our house. Don't you enjoy driving by houses and seeing a tree all aglow in the window?
I wedged the tree into an urn using bricks to anchor it. The gold is acutally a tree skirt gathered and tucked.
I also decided to add a little blue to the gold decor which I've had for 15 or more years. Gold and silver are my two favorite colors for Christmas. Sparkle will always be in style.
While teaching school in Savannah, a mom of one of my students made this ornament for me. It holds sand and shells from Tybee Island. I'll always cherish it.
Glimpses around the room.
Please forgive me for not visiting and commenting much this week. I am down with the flu. No good time to be sick but better now than next week.
Hope you are enjoying the season!
