Christmas Cheer & All that Glitters and Shines

I am re focused.  In the holiday mood.  Decorated and ready for the season!  This year I was drawn like a magnet to everything that glittered.  Martha must be getting to me =)  It started with these adorable acorns.
 Then it was glittery pine cones, and snowman
 Glittery gingerbread men and Merry Christmas signs

 Glitter bows

 See that tree...real or fake?

 Noni's Ivy Elfs
 Yup it is fake!!!!  I am so proud of myself that I have finally converted. Soooo much easier and that was my top priority. This tree literally took three minutes to set up. I don't think this is the same brand but this was how it went together  Easy Set Up  and believe you me it was only a few minutes of fluffing.  I am SOLD!  Now I just need to find a really good candle for scent.
Some really cozy throws from Costco and I am all ready to go.  I don't know if it was not hosting Thanksgiving this year or all my refreshment from my trip, but I am almost completely ready. I  have most of my shopping done.  I am so ahead of myself this year I can hardly believe it.  I am in shock at how relaxed I feel, and really able to enjoy the season.   Hope your holiday season is going well too!

Just get some boughs for aroma if you find yourself missing it. The tree and the entire house looks Christmas kissed! Good job!

Your home is looking very festive; I like your style! Sparkle and glitter are always good in my opinion.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I want to come and sit on your sofa in front of the fireplace, and just soak in all the beauty. Your simple, yet exquisitely beautiful decorating style suits me perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing. Enjoy! I did!

It's all looking very lovely and festive over there! Can't wait to come and enjoy the atmosphere of Christmas cheer. I'm into the glitter look too, love it.

Try that "frasier fir" scent by Thymes...I'm telling ya, it's the best pine smell I know. :)

See you soon!
