A Little Christmas Play

I'm honestly just getting started with my Christmas decorating.  I'm not even close to being finished, but I had a chance to do a little playing around today.






My "Wreath Chair" now has one of my horseshoe handled boxes sitting on it.  I added a few pillows, and a sprig of pine.




It'll hold small gifts at some point.




Still loving my little Christmas tree.  I have it elevated on a box, that's draped in lace.  I have silver beads, and I'm starting to sprinkle my gesso birdies here and there.  Not finished yet.




I gave the birds a sprinkling of silver glitter.




Just wanted to give you a glimpse of what I had a tiny bit of time to do today.




Now, I have to decide what I want to do with this basket full of branches.




I know some of you are finished with your decorating.  Anyone else just getting started?

You're off to a very pretty start, Rosemary! I love the box on the chair. How lovely that you've got some fresh greens to add in.

I just started decorating too. Made a silver and gold vignette on the piano using my mothers vintage stole/wrap/shawl. Would love new followers and welcome comments.

Very pretty! I'm so far behind in decorating and doing hand made gifts that I'm starting to panic!

The way you've styled everything here is so exciting, Rosemary! So fun to look at, and gorgeous for Christmas. Love it!

Your decorating is so serene! And, okay, I haven't even started! With a houseful of people arriving for Christmas, I guess I better get on that, huh?

I love your perfect vignette with the chair and the horse shoe box. It definitely looks like Christmas to me.

Rosemary, I loved that chair before but now it is even better. I love your tree too. You do such great things. I am learning from you and others. It is hard when you are a young blogger.

That chair just makes this a perfect vignette. I can't remember if I commented when you posted about the chair or not! The tree is perfect.

Donna said...

This is just SO beautiful!! I love the shorter tree on top of the box with the tablecloth skirt draped. Simply stunning!
I have not even started yet so you are light years ahead of me in your decorating!
