Tree at last!

We finally put our tree up this past weekend.  I love the smell of the balsam!  Thought I'd link into White Wednesday since most of its' ornaments are white.  Happy Wednesday everyone!



More white in our living room...








The box under the tree is wrapped in some lovely ribbon I got from Michelle at her etsy store.



I put this faux wreath inside a thrift store frame that usually resides in our daughter's room.  Adding some tea-stained paper printed with Christmas carols and some pinecones with spray snow gave the display some varied textures.  The glittered ornament adds some sparkle, contrasting against the burlap ribbon and real greenery above the frame.
Happy White Wednesday, and thanks to Kathleen for hosting!

Your christmas decor is divine! Is there anyway you could tell me what color you have on your walls! I'm getting ready to change the color of my old studio from red, to I don't know what yet! The color you have is very soothing!

Hello, I sent you a response to your question, Theresa, and thought I'd post it here as well. Happy painting!

Our living room walls are painted 'Idyllic Blue' from Glidden in eggshell finish. I think we got it at Home Depot 5 years ago. We have a similar color in the bathroom, 'Marilyn's Dress', which is still produced by Benjamin Moore. They are bluish/gray and very soothing, peaceful colors.

Hope you find a color you like!

Thanks for visiting,

Susan

I absolutely love the frame and wreath idea - it looks wonderful!!! I also love the glittered ornament, it looks like a photo of birds. Can you tell me where you purchased it from as I have been looking for something like that for a project I am working on?

Susan said...

To answer lala's question...
I think I got the bird ornament at a TJ Maxx or Marshall's (TJX companies) store a couple of years ago. It seems to be a reproduction of a vintage postcard with seasonal greetings on it, sprinkled with glitter.
