All That Glitters

...in our home this Christmas season


...are golden mosaic baubles, glass beaded votives,


and glistening silver balls.


While fancy gilded birds float among antique gold and silver petite pinecones and


sterling nests of spun frosted wire.


Sparkly snowflakes and glass ornaments in ivory and hot pink sit on the marble mantle with cobalt glass reflecting colours like a prism.


Soft velvet and sequin paisley ornaments,


...ethereal feathered angel wings,


and snow kissed pomegranates.


My favorite lighted blooms cascade from a rustic French basket hanging from a wrought iron scroll.


Tiny ivory and silver berries hang from the branches and...


glow against our royal blue ceiling which looks like the midnight sky.


But every year my favorite treasure is this precious nativity that my little boy gave me when he was two years old.


Each year I try to find a different and special place for it in our home.


This is what glitters in our home this Christmas.


I hope your Christmas sparkled and brought you JOY.


Buon Natale Amici,
Suzanne
