Show & Tell Friday: A Bit More Christmas

Welcome to Show & Tell Friday, hosted by Cindy over at My Romantic Home.
Cindy has a lot of participants, so please hop on over there and take a look.
I'm showing you some more of my Christmas decorations....after the cloche party last week I had lots of inspiration!

This first photo is of my vintage seashell bottles that I first showed you here.
I didn't want to put them away for the Christmas holidays so I decided to add a bit of Christmas to the vignette......I LOVE it.

Here is a close up of the vintage-looking mercury glass Christmas tree and ornaments that I found at Tuesday Morning.....I love these glass balls and will probably have a difficult time putting them away after the holidays!

This is where I have this arrangement.....on our kitchen table but couldn't get a good photo of it....the lighting leaves something to be desired.


The wainscoting that was put up some time ago, still needs painting!

I have this arrangement on my kitchen counter but I couldn't get a decent picture there either.
I took two candle holders and turned one upside down and made a cloche out of it.
The other one I just added a lid from another cloche and voila'....I have an additional cloche.

This is the first year I've used fake snow and love it except for the mess.

I glittered away on my pine cones and pomegranates.

Hope you enjoyed this look at my decorations.
Have an enjoyable weekend.
I love and read each and every one of your sweet comments!

Hi, Lenore,
Thank you for sharing your pretty Christmas vignettes! I loved your cloches and how you have decorated them. That mercury glass is heavenly. I don't blame you, I would keep it out year around, too. Blessings to you! Vicki

Good Evening Lenore sweetie...
I have so enjoyed looking at your beautiful decorations this evening. I love the Santas under the cloche that you made.

So very beautiful. I too have used the artificial snow this year. It is messy, but I so love the look. It is so real looking.

Your mercury glass is so breathtaking. I think I would just leave those out year round and decorate around them. So beautiful.

Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit.

Country hugs...Sherry

Very pretty. I use Epsom Salts for my fake snow. I love the mercury glass, It can stay out through the winter too.

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

I adore your decor. And you are right about the faux snow. It can make a mess. Thanks for sharing (not the mess, but the decor). And thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment on my Christmas decor.

Your mercury glass is just WONDERFUL ! A treasure to keep safe for sure.

Thanks for sharing and have a GRAND weekend.
