My Christmas Decorations

Peacock Pete, the mascot of our Christmas tree, with his vanity mirror. He's so vain, I bet he thinks this blog is about him.

Click on the pic to see it big time! Picture collage created in Picasa.


The reflection of the dining room chandelier in my heart mirror ornament.




I use mirrors at the base of the trees to reflect prettiness. I didn't use all the ornaments I'd used in previous years, so I put them in pretty stuff that holds other pretty stuff.





Peacock feather sticking out of the top of the tree.



Less than $5.00 chandelier decor. One strand of garland. Two strands of beads. 6 tassels and 10 or so poinsettias.


From the outside looking in. Garland and big jingle bells in the window boxes with fake frost on the windows.



You can buy "Peace" at Walgreens!


Dear Santa, I've been a really good girl this year. Please bring me a decent camera for Christmas so I can quit using my crummy camera phone. Thank you.

  1. Your decorations are really wonderful. I like especially the tree. Also the bulbs in glass vases are very traditional kind of Christmas decorations. I use them too, it's pretty easy and effective. Last year I had also garlands inside the house but this year I decided to place them only outside.

    Have a nice day,
    Elli

  2. I have psychic powers.
    Yesterday I checked your blog, and wondered when you were going to post your Christmas tree.
    Today I come back, and you posted decorations.
    Love them.

  4. A love the glamorous feel of your decorations!! An interesting note, today mormon mommy blogs are doing a holiday tour of homes to show off decorations. Are you on MMB? I'm not sure that I've even commented here before, but I've been reading for a little while. I'm not even sure how I found you -- a few months ago I asked people what they're favorite blogs were, and yours was mentioned.

    Anyway......love the look of your home!

  8. I've been thinking about how to decorate my chandelier. HGTV and you have shown me some ideas. It might be time to get some stuff on it.

    Your deco is beautiful and gets me in the mood for more decorating.

  17. Would like to have Annie come and see all my trees! I am having a party tonight, but anytime would work. I want to know what kind of personality I have if I put up multiple trees of many colors and decorations.
