A Whimsical Christmas

"The only true gift is a portion of thyself" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

We had a visit from the Christmas Fairy who helped us to trim the tree...

Angel Wings....

The magical glow of love affair with silver trays and thrifted glass

A little Christmas village - revamped garage sale finds and a branch collected from my garden, strung with birds, baubles and butterflies...magical indeed.

I have been having such fun decorating the house with Christmas cheer...

"Enjoy the little things in life, because someday you will realise they were the big things."

Don't forget there is still time to enter my little birthday giveaway...the time is drawing nearer...only 7 more sleeps!

  8. Oh my friend...your home is magical!!! I love your tree...Such FUN!

  9. Beautiful! I do so love the glow of candlelight as it shimmers amidst glass and silver... the long reaching shadows seem so much more enchanting, do they do? Your collection is glorious! ~ I too bring in branches from the great outdoors and deck them with quartz crystals that we have dug from the earth ourselves. I then glue a facet onto them and thread them with a silver string for hanging. Most magical!

  10. Very magical.....enchanting.....beautiful......
