Just an Ornament or Two


This year my china cabinet has really seen some changes.  She got a touch up with scrapbook paper and even got to join in the celebration of Fall/Halloween with pumpkins inside.  Now that Christmas is upon us, well she gets her own ornaments.  I would love to add lights in here, but I do not want to drill holes or anything else similar.  I thought about purchasing the pop LED lights, but they are stuck on and I am worried if I ever wanted to take them down, well it’d just be a disaster!  So for now she will just sit in the corner in our dining room and show off pieces of the season/holiday.  Little things make big statements!

On our coffee table sits this candle holder filled with ornaments and a bow wrapped around it.  Along with the candles that I got last year from Target.  I sat them in a little plastic tray that was in our bathroom and added some moss.

What else do you do with ornaments other than putting them on the tree?
Oh, I am working on a project that is taking a lot longer than I expected.  I am not even half down and it took me 2 hours!  But I will prevail, for one because I don’t quit, two it’s really lovely and three because I want to share it with y’all!
