Congrats to Karen!

I love Victoria and
even my older books
and magazines are
very inspiring.

This year I'm drawn
to the whites and
natural elements,
with a bit of silver
and gold thrown in!

But some years it's
red and green and
'lots of glitter.....

Enjoy this wonderful

I usually stay with the red & green for most of my decorating and add a lot of whimsie. Your decorations are wonderful and would fit right in with mine. The book looks interesting and the seashell ornaments are beautiful. Happy holidays. Hugs

I love Victoria magazine books--I have their holiday baking one. I just sent seashells and sea glass to my grandson who wanted some--it came from a good friend, who lives on Prudence Island off Rhode Island. He's gonna be like his mama and love the water, I bet, XOXO

Sunny Simple Life said...

My littlest one is so into Santa this year. So many questions about how he is going to get down our chimney. Love your little display. She would have fun looking at all the little treasures.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Great finds! Now don't those shell ornaments just suit you to a "T"? I love white and much of my Christmas decor is now white, silver and blue but I still love the brights too and incorporate them in other rooms in the house. Love your little Christmas vignette too!

Hello bloggy friend. It's so good to take a little break to visit this Sunday morning before I head back to my boxes.
LOVE your sidebar picture in your cute pj's. :)
Congrats to Karen, she'll love all the goodies from you and Shanti.
Oh yes, I prefer the bright colors, but I also decorate some rooms with white, silver and gold for the holidays.
I scrolled down and browsed through all of your posts and I love all your decorations. Love the pics of the bed with the sun. I enjoy that so much too.
Well, back to help hubby with more packing. Maybe I should play some Christmas music to add a little holiday cheer to it all. ;)
PS-My husband's grandmother gave us those holly plates when we first married and I only have one setting left. Hope it makes it to the new house. ;)

Hey, I'm late linking over from Diane's! That looks like a fantastic book, Diane. I prefer bright colors in the family room and kitchen, with more subtle colors in the dining room. :D
