it has been such a long while since my last post!!
~ and there really is a logical explanation...
really there is :)
my darling daughter is in her final year in high school!
there are soooo many little details that need my attention
to help prepare her into her next big adventure in life.
please forgive my absence.
I promise to return on a regular basis soon...
I miss you all so very much!
I miss posting
reading all of the fabulous inspiration you have posted too.
I just couldn't let this most wonderful time of the year go by
without wishing all of my dear readers
a very merry Christmas and a happiest New Year!!
I've posted some photos of my holiday decor this year ~
my theme has been snow angels
so without further adieu
here is a little tour in the land of odds...
a crystal snowflake and jingle bell Christmas greens
front door adornment
with a lovely blue satin ribbon bow...
at my front entrance hangs
a pair of wings I spun from white tulle
I wanted an ethereal feel...
it wouldn't be Christmas to me
without paperwhite flower blooms!
a bowl full of glittering "snowballs"
and holiday greens at the base of my entrance table...
my dinning room table
holds our advent wreath and candles ...
I adore how these angel wings look
tied to my advent candles...
frosted snowflakes can be found sprinkled throughout our home this year...
...all is calm ~ all is bright...
my santos, wearing her raw crystal crown and feather wings...
our mantle complete with a garland of snowflakes and paper snow angels...
paperwhite blooms and lovely shimmers abound...
this is my flocked alpine snowing tree!
you can't see it,
but at the back of the trunk
a tube runs up to the top
and showers snow down upon the tree!!
it is completely magical I tell you!!
I placed a hoop above the tree on the ceiling
and hung my paper snow angels all the way around.
when the heater turns on,
they twirl around
dancing by twinkling fairy lights!!
I wish you could see how lovely they are with your very own eyes :)
a night time glimpse of the dancing garland of snow angels...
there is even a snow angel upon our bed!
she whispers sweet winter wishes as we dream...
her wings are two pillows!!
I made them from tulle too...
upon her head
sits an ethereal veiled crystal crown...
and with her
she carries a crystal snowflake...
I hope that all of your holiday preparations and pretties
have enriched your homes
and the lives of those you hold near and dear
as mine have
and that in these coming days,
your homes are also filled with much love and joy
and your hearts are blessed beyond your wishes...
Merriest Hearts, dear ones!
~ and a Happiest New Year!
