Christmas Decor

 ~ M E R R Y  C H R I S T M A S ~

Little bird salt & pepper shakers I bought this fall at Pier 1.  We used them for our dinner party last night and they were a hit with guests.

I love the abundance of this glass vase full of ornaments.

More ornaments and a little present in the background.

A Christmas tree tea light holder.  The Christmas tree is my favorite image of Christmas.

A crystal bowl with sparkling ornaments I bought last season.  In case you didn't notice, I love the gentle all-white look!

A pretty angel ornament stands next to my favorite lamp.

This little vintage wire tree came from a Christmas bazaar at my church last year.  It cost $3!  I love Christmas sales...
A laser-cut branch decoration, hanging on the wall near the kitchen.

  1. Hi Terri! You have the nicest photographs, and one of the nicest homes. Your home should be in a magazine!!

    Just wanted to let you know, I posted a link to your blog on mine today.


  2. Full of lovely Christmas decorations! I love this time of the year when I can wallow in silver and gold.

  3. I was so close to buying those bird S&P shakers yesterday! Then I reminded myself Im out shopping for my friends, not for me :) Love them.

  4. That handsome man is the big love of my life.


  5. Hi Terri!

    Wow, so many lovely pics :) And what a lovely home you have :)

    Yeah, I read somewhere that just here 1600 people are laid off every day. It's hard to imagine what kind of impact this will have on us yet. I really hope that you get to keep your job tho!!

    What a lovely house your parents have, seems like such a tranquil and down to earth place :) Have you ever thought about going back there? :)

    Yeah, Lucia is a combined tradition and there are various stories to it. Now we celebrate it with girls wearing long white cotton gowns and the Lucia has candles in her hair and the other girls have one candle in their hand/s. The boys wear gowns as well and have a pointed hat on their head (white with golden stars). And then there are gingerbreadmen and santas helpers dressed in little santa outfits :) It's all very cute :) And we eat gingerbread cookies and saffron buns :)

    Ok, off to put the little one to bed, have a great evening!

    Hugs, Susanne
