Diane, beautiful bobbles and some great colors. Your room looks so nice and warm. Will you send some warmth here? Way too cold. Thanks for joining the party.

I just had to leave a comment on how weird it is to see green leaves on your tree...whilst I am here covered in snow!

and your pillow shams...with all that glorious fine crochet on them.....oh I am totally drooling right now...I really need to make myself a set like that!

ciao bella

I love all your vintage ball ornaments. I have a few that I found in my father in law's basement a few years ago. Usually I put them in a big white ironstone bowl, but this year I decided to put them in a tall clear vase, so they would be easier to see.
You have such a bright house. Every room always has tons of light steaming through the windows.

Creative Breathing said...

What a lovely light and airy place to be! Look at your chair turned to the light. Sigh! I would not think to collect together ornaments in a bowl. Simply elegant! Elizabeth

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Your bedroom looks so nice and sunny, Diane! I love the red ornament balls you put in different sizes of glass containers...they almost look like berries or candy!
