A few moments of holiday decorating...

...so this weekend has been a busy one...

...but I loved being able to embrace the Christmas decorating spirit for a few moments on Sunday...and so I started on the living-room!


I just clipped some holly from our front yard...arranged it on this buffet and placed (in this case) some new light pink glass balls all around...I was running out of holly...so I may add some more next weekend.

...I also love using vintage saucers as holders for candles!

...I adore my iron Westie book-ends...I have a West Highland Terrier, named Tuffy...so I am up for anything Westie!

...now my mantel is below...
...here it is without the candles lit...

...and here it is all lit up!

...on the mantel I mixed in some vintage glass balls too...
...I think I am going to find some greenery for those wire urns on either side of the mantel...maybe some magnolia leaves?

Happy Monday!

Caroline,
It looks marvelous!!! Love those Westie dogs! I've got the Christmas music on, the tree is up and I've started on the mantels.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
