Christmas Past ~

I know Christmas is not here yet, {thankfully}
but I wanted to share my glitz and glam
from last year since many of you
have started following my blog since then.
I hope you enjoy ~
I have quite a collection of antique silver ornaments~
My skinny tree...I love it! We got it at Hobby Lobby two years ago on sale for $99 last one no box Now the same tree is $297! I draped the tree with vintage silver glass bead garland ~

I made a lot of my ornaments last year and
embellished them with
german glass glitter for
maximum sparkle and shine~
Mittens I made and embellished with
vintage millinery and glass glitter~

Just couldn't quit making them...

My little touch of
Christmas Past for you today.

Oh it looks so great! I love your skinny tree. My mom likes them too!
Your glitz is just wonderful. I'm going to put white and silver on my list of Christmas decor I want to do one year!
Happy Halloween!

Gorgeous display! There is nothing prettier than white at Christmastime, and vintage sparkley things just make the look complete!

What gorgeous Christmas finery! You have a right to be proud. They are each so lovely. It won't be long and everyone will be getting ready for the big decorations. You have a great start. I love Christmas decorations and all of the inventive beauties people create.
Have a lovely weekend. I am so glad Halloween is behind us and now we can concentrate on being Thankful...Sharon

I loved seeing your christmas, beautiful, especially the sparkel mitten orniment. Where do you get the glass sparkels? I love skinny trees. I'm doing a silver and plum tree this year.

Thank you for joining my followers. I visit them ones or twice a week. I'll join yours.

I love all this! The ornaments are to die for! I have started a collection of my own and last weekend was able to snag 3 vintage silver ornaments for $1 at a bargain section of an antique store.
