Christmas Ornaments

Hello Everyone!
I hope you are getting your shopping and decorating done.
The ornaments shown are leopard orb ornaments.
I just ordered them from Our Creative Life.
I found the hurricane at Ross and made a vignette.
I added angels, gold ribbons and a new frame from Target.
This is a vignette I have on my kitchen console.
The precious little lamp is a new find.
Would you believe a hospital gift shop?
I was visiting and ended up shopping for home decor'.
The pedastal bowl is the Southern Living barley twist.
They have the best home decor' parties.

Here is the niche.Have a wonderful week!

Everything looks so nice, Melissa. I enjoyed seeing it all. I noticed the picture on your sidebar of (I think I know) you and your hubby and your cat sitting on the couch. Is that your Christmas card picture?

Diane said...

Hi Melissa,
I love the way the little white tree turned out. Look at the new picture of it on my header. I took a bunch of pictures yesterday with my husbands Casio, then couldn't find the docking station... grrrr... I retook some pictures with my Kodak but the pictures are never quite as clear. The white one is my favorite tree!!! Thank you for finding it! ♥
Diane

Hi Melissa, I have a little something for you on my blog.

Merry Christmas!

Sarah @ ThriftyDecorChick said...

Beeeutiful!! Oh, I have that twist stand too, and am using it for the holiday decor. I don't usually have it out because I don't have just the right spot for it. Love everything!

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Melissa, glad you got your ornaments! They really are pretty. Thanks for sending a check, I honestly forgot about the payment. I've been so busy and crazy lately, but I think I'm finally done decorating. Oh no, still have to do my parents house, but it's pretty easy. I decorated a house Tues. and had to finish on Wed. She wanted alot more done than I thought! It's more of a contempory fun look, she picked everything out. It turned out really neat, just different than what I've been doing. Talk to you soon! Kristen

Kristens Creations said...

Oh... and what's up with RMS? I hope they get it fixed!

Hey Ms. 'M'
I just looked more into your site and I just had to tell you this.... I have one of your candle holders! The photo of Chestnut and the table in the hallway has two
golden candle holders. I have one of those but mine doesn't have the glass on top.
Wild huh!

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a USMC wife married to a wonderful man for fifteen years. He's a CH-53E pilot and has done three fleet tours overseas. I am very proud of him and his hard work. For many years I worked in retail jewelry sales and finally decided it was time to stop and enjoy my decorating passion. We share our home with our cat Chestnut, Lloyd the cockatiel and a betta fish. I appreciate all of your comments and try to respond to as many as I can. Join me! I would be happy for you to follow along.
