It took me 6 days to decorate the house for Christmas.
Much of today was spent taking photographs for the two Holiday Blog Tours am joining.
so I made a second tour of the house capturing portions of vignettes or rooms.
I noticed that I am drawn to sparkle and shine this year -
bright shiny ornaments
appear in at least one spot in every room.
I found a beautiful glass bulb and bead garland at a local shop that was a perfect gift for my sister
and I had to go back and buy one for myself.
In addition to sparkle,
you can see that red & white
are the dominant colors
in the house right now.
This little display in the guest room
will easily segue into Valentines Day by simply swapping the Christmas postcard with a Valentine.
As I was shooting small details rather than the "big picture"
another thing I noticed
was the childlike nature
of Christmas at our house.
Color, sparkle and a bit of whimsy
definitely describe the decorations this year.
After a morning at the spa, Lulu thought she fit right in with the decorations.
Be sure to stop by next week for the Cozy at Christmas Blog Tour.
