I do have to apologize for the picture quality. It was very cloudy today, so I thought that the pictures might turn out better if I took them in the evening....clearly that was not the best choice to make. But you live and you learn right! So these are best images that point and shoot will give me.
I have focused on a few areas to show you, first I want to show you my table area.
I started my tablescape by forcing some paper white bulbsto bloom in some glass containers. Then I made a table runner, and finally added some candles.
I decorated the top of an antique desk with some old Reed and Barton silver bells that depict the 12 days of Christmas. This is actually a life long Christmas tradition for me. My grandmother bought two sets of these silver bells, one for her and one for my mother. Every year I loved to get out the set of bells and put them in order and on display. Sadly a few years ago my grandmother passed away and I inherited her set of silver bells.
I also decorated the top of the TV armoire. I have been busy making faux mercury glass and I seemed to be grouping them on the top of the armoire. I also placed pictures that usually live on the fireplace mantel, lights and more fresh greenery.
Finally I decorated my mantel. I am probably the most crazy about how it turned out. I got all different taper holders. Some were glass and the rest I made silver with spray paint.
the Inspired Room, that sparkly vase filler is Epsom Salt. Love It!
