I'll Have a Blue (and White) Christmas

Have you been getting into the Christmas spirit?  We are feeling jolly here, already setting up the tree and Christmas decorations.  It takes a while to bedeck the whole house, but I take my time and enjoy it all, especially while listening to Christmas tunes. 
For White Wednesday over at Kathleen's blog, I'm sharing the transformation in our dining room.  Of course I must include my favorite light blue along with the vintage white & cream colors. 


Vintage Shiny Brites on the bottom shelf of our hutch:

And closer...

I got these neat glittered pedestal and trophies at my local thrift store this past year:



A nod to Victorian Santas on this shelf:



I've had this reindeer for years, and decided to sew some faux fur around his neck this season:

The faux fur was mainly used on top of our mahogany buffet, along with the vintage 'trimmed' tree I posted about last week:



I've added a 'SNOW' banner, also purchased at the thrift store:


The vintage-inspired victorian star ornaments I made are now raised in the silver bowls, cushioned by faux snow:


I love these glitter reindeers picked up at the dollar store:

And here is a simple corner showcasing a Christmas village and white feather wreath:




I'll be sharing more of this room, as well as the living room in the coming days. 
Don't forget to enter my Christmas Giveaway, which ends December 7th.  Have a jolly season!

Gasp! Everything is stunningly bueatiful makes me want to go upstairs and start all over! Alas my husband isn't big into white so mine is all green and solf gold, one of these day's I'll have my own space and it will be all white all the time (with glitter of course).

Lovely, absolutely lovely!

Absolutely gorgeous!

I have a very similar corner cabinet that I love to hold my collections in.

I hope you'll link this up at Knick of Time Tuesday today!

I'm also hosting a Canvas Photo Print giveaway - perfect for Christmas and so lovely too!

Blessings,

Your living room is just magical, Susan! I am totally in love with the glittered trophy and pedestal! And I think I have that same little silver glittered church. What a luck find the snow banner was, hard to believe someone else didn't want it! It's all so pretty!!! Oh, and I have those same reindeer, too! You never know what goodies you can find at the dollar store!

I do the same thing and try to find very similar pieces at our antique mall when I really like a picture from Houzz or a design site or magazine. It is totally fun.

All the submitted pictures is really nice and I know that how to make this kind of theme. It is too hard to make as well as to manage. It is such a very much courageous and time spending work
