Decorating, such as it is . . .

Here are a few spots of Christmas decorating I have done so far.  I have boxes I didn't even open.  Each year it seems I get out less and less.  Only 1 tree this year when I used to have one in every room!  I still have alot of Christmas spirit, just not alot of ambition!  I'd rather make new things every year than get my old ones out!

Made this many years ago and I still love it!  You can't see it much but the frame is wiped with gold paint and is just lovely!

I was a WINNER in Noelle Garrett Designs fabulous giveaway!  These are her pictures because mine just didn't do her creations justice.  Everything I took out of the beautifully packaged box just took my breath away!

Wasn't I a lucky girl?

Speaking of giveaways - here are some more!  Jen at J Nichelle Holiday makes the most spectacular creations from vintage ornaments.

Lulu Kellogg is offering this teeny, tiny, wonderful crown to one lucky person!  Can you think of anything else so perfect!

Gwendolyn at A Charming Home is actually parting with these antique pink ornaments!

I love giving shout outs to these artists who so generously offer their goodies to those of us with so little talent!  I love visiting their blogs and finding new etsy stores to buy all my Christmas presents!  Thank you!


200 followers is the reason for this pink giveaway!  Stephanie at Rose Petals and Rust has a lovely blog!

Wishing you all a happy week . . .

Hi Connie!

Thanks so much for posting about my Giveaway!

I love your decorations. We are putting out a few but not many this year and being minimalist with our decor. Keeping it simple.

Have a lovely day!

Hey Connie, I love your lime green ornaments and all your holiday vignettes...very, very pretty. I would love for you to post about my give-away if you want to. It will run thru the 21st and it will also be on my Pink Saturday blog. The little teapots are a hard to find ornament. I hope you have a fabulous day. xo Lynn said...

Me too, I have boxes still full in the closet, but am pretty happy with just setting out a selection of faves. Every year I do less too. Looks like you chose some really special things to decorate with!
