Hi Bloggerettes!  My Christmas tree is really small this year, but never-the-less it's kinda sweet.
 I like how it sparkles at night....

I added a little glitter and bling to the dining room chandelier....
Spent some time at Home Goods for some retail therapy.
Had to have this mercury glass jar...

And, this pretty french image canvas print that's blending beautifully with the french crown...

 Had to have these cute french trays too.  Just love the crowns.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the Christmas and holiday festivities.  It's such a special time of year for giving and sharing and for enjoying time with family and friends.  So, no matter how you celebrate I hope that your heart is flooded with happiness and love.

Merry Christmas to YOU, Ms Sissy!
Everything looks spectacular and so inviting.

I dont know about you but I could pre-set my car navigation to every Home Goods across the nation and beyond as I make a road trip, then start all over again. Open, Open, Open o yeah that was Mervyn's line

Shabby chic Sandy said...

Love all your decorating-I went to Homegoods last night and saw all the things you got! I ended up getting myself a hanging mercury glass candleholder--even though I told myself only Christmas shopping--no buying for me! Sometimes you just lose control in HomeGoods:)

Irma@CosasBellas said...

OMGosh Sissie, your Christmas decor looks fantabulous!!! I always get in trouble when shopping at Home Goods, as a matter of fact that mercury jar jumped in my cart and it took everything I had to wrestle it back out since my goal was to buy gifts for "others" that day. lol
There were some aqua colored mercury ornaments that managed to make it home with me though!
I love every single one of your purchases!

Have a great weekend Miss Sissie,

Claudia said...

Your living room looks lovely, Sissie. That little tree is perfect. When you come to think of it, why get a bigger one? You have one in just the right size.


awal.ny said...

It all looks so darling. That little tree is just perfect, size is not important when it is decorated just perfectly. Your home looks so festive. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Everything looks so pretty, Sissie! You've got a winter wonderland going on at your house! : ) You found some great things at Home Goods. I don't think there is one here, but I have seen Marshalls and TJ Maxx.

Hi Sissie:
I love your sweet little tree! Your room looks beautifully festive. I just finished the last item to ship for family and now I can spend a little time decorating.
Merry Christmas week, my friend.

Sissie- It is just gorgeous at your house! How long can I stay when I visit?;>) xo Diana

Lisa said...

The cottage is looking anything but shabby these days! Love your tiny tree! I am jealous of your HG purchases, we don't have one close. Maybe that's a good thing, I've been known to spend a lot there. Your pillow slips & chaulkboard mirror are awesome. Darn I wish I was close to your shop, I would buy them today! Hope your enjoying your holidays!

LuLu Kellogg said...

Your decor is just dreamy Sissie!!!

Happy Holidays Sweetie!

Sorry to disagree with you but.....your tree is beyond "kinda cute"'s gorgeous!

Susan said...

Your home is absolutely gorgeous! Merry Christmas!

Pam @ Frippery said...

Haven't been to Home Goods for almost a year, but you are sorely tempting me. I could say I was going to shop for others but since I am finished I know it would be for mememe! So I must avoid it. Love everything you have done with your beautiful purchases. Your tree is as darling as your profile photo in the cute jacket. I just love to visit. There is always something pretty to lift my spirits!
