Merry and Bright

Christmas decoration
 Here are a few vignettes in the living room.

No deconstruction - just pared down to a simple merry and bright Christmas.

The Frozen Charlottes like to pretend they are sugar plum fairies at Christmas.

We only used vintage Shiny Brite balls of various sizes and hundreds of white lights for the tree.

An angel greets visitors at the door.

A simple vignette: vintage postcards, a lighted topiary, and my quail collection.

I do change out the prints around the house with snow pictures.

They stay up until the end of February.

Come on by if you have the time.  

I promise all the junk is put away.  Neatly!

I always allow guests this time of year.

I promise fudge, cookies, and Chucks' horrible coffee.

See y'all!

See all the bottle brush trees at these posts:

  1. I knew you'd sneak those creepy frozen Charlottes in!!! It all looks lovely girl and I wish I was stopping by! I want some fudge!

  2. Amazing tree Donna. Love Shiny Bright ornaments.
    You have everything looking so neat. Thanks for the tour.
    Wish I could come, but just a little too far.
    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

  3. Fabulous tree, Donna! And I love the angel greeting guests! Is that an oval frame on top of another frame? Really unique looking!

  4. It all looks very pretty. I've been cleaning and baking and cooking for three days. I'm tuckered! I'm ready to settle down and enjoy Christmas now. Hope yours is wonderful Donna!

  5. The bottle brush trees are just beautiful! And your tree is gorgeous with the pretty ornies and lots of lights! I love old shiny brites and anything vintage! Merry Christmas!!!

  6. Your decor looks very festive Donna, and the tree is gorgeous! Oh I wish I lived close enough to stop by... even if I had to drink Chuck's horrible coffee.

  7. Merry Christmas! I'm visiting via We Call it Olde. I like your vignettes and those frozen Charlotte's with those trees, cute!

  8. I love your angel greeting people to your home!
