Hi !! Just a Quick, mid week post to show you, YES, I am working on Christmas here in the Sweet n' Shabby Cottage :) :)
The hard part for me was choosing the colors this year. Last year I used my Moms sweet pillow ornaments and soft pinks and aqua's. See here. I LOVE them, but Honestly, I loved them SO much, I left the tree up this WHOLE year, so that I could enjoy them. I added Valentine and Easter items to it as the Seasons changed. This year, I felt like MORE color. :) Since this tree is in the sitting room, and all pastels in here, I wanted to stay with my beloved pinks.
Now to choose. I admit right here for EVERYONE to know, I am a vintage glass ornament-aholic. No, there isn't a special self help group for people like me, but there SHOULD be. I went through 11 boxes of vintage ornaments and pulled out some of the hot pink ones. I had brought home ( a few years ago ) the coolest mica pink and aqua sputnik type as well, and decided they were my inspiration this year.
And here is a Peek at the Tree :) I will show the whole tree for Pink Saturday :)
My Pink Reindeer cried out to me to be on the tree as well :) Now, could YOU deny a Pink Reindeer anything ?
I was SO lucky to find two more of these this year ! Now I have 6. ( Sorry Cathy :) :) ) Also a few sweet friends Blessed me with a few White Reindeer with Pink ears last year :) Thank you Cerri and Sherry !
This little guy is new. ( Well, old, but new for me :) ) And my pretty Angel has taken a liking to him :)
Aren't these pretty ? I found these LARGE pink roses ornaments in the same lot as the sputniks last year. Yummy Pretty !!! And this sweet Nativity in pink :)
And of course, my FAVORITES, handmade ornaments that my Great Grandmother made, and a sweet pink Reindeer from my sweet friend Steph :)
So, that is a peek of what I am up to. I still am only doing a small tree and just a bit of decor this year. But I am loving every second of it :)
