Decorating for the Holidays

Hi Bloggerettes!  Are you having fun decorating for the Holidays?
I am in awe of the beautiful trees and decorations that I'm seeing here on the blogs.  Y'all rock!!!

Nothing in my home is safe from a little adornment this time of year.
I've noticed the kitties have been hiding too.  Here kittie kittie....don't you want to wear a bow for Mommie.....

 I love putting wreaths on different this pillow.  Looks pretty cute, don't ya think!


I've collected Lenox Christmas pieces for several years and here are a few of my favorites....

I can't help showing off my pink vintage ornaments.  The pink is getting harder to find.

That's it for now.
Stay tuned for a giveaway coming up soon.

Now get out there and create, make, sew, craft, photograph, write, crochet, knit, paint and find something wonderful and share with all of us.

I love your pillow/wreath and the Lenox pieces are so beautiful and original. Thanks for the inspiration, Sissie!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love your Lenox pieces, Sissie! That large piece is gorgeous! Love the pink ornaments, too. I may have to look for some myself since there are so many antique places here. I really love the way they look just placed in a bowl.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Love your creative use of wreaths! So cute!

I think I am about done creating, decorating, and for the enjoying!!
I hope you are enjoying it too!!

Cindy said...

Why do i think the kitties are running for cover right now? Maybe they'll end up with a Christmas bow, or Christmas wreath around their necks. It also appears mommy has lost her mind and posted photos of them with Christmas baubles on their ears...
And, i agree, the little wreath on the pillow is adorable! What a cute idea, and what a cute little wreath!


Low Tide High Style said...

Sissie, your home is beautiful any time of year, but most especially at Christmas! I will have to keep my eyes out for any vintage pink ornaments and send them your way!

Sissie, the pink ornaments are hard to find! I love your wreath pillow, but my kitties would chew it right off, especially if I hung balls from their ears LOL!

Oh I think the wreath on the pillow is perfection. Well done! You mentioned French Freak in a comment on my blog. Is it a website? I have slowly been falling in love with French linens, French accessories and the beautiful language. Happy Holidays!
