silver.. pearl and violet..

and .. this is how it looks finally..
I know boxes were not as beautiful as the tree.. I also took a close up.. because the photo does not show the colours perfectly.. I love all these lilacs..purples..and pearls.. it looks shiny..
the little box below.. is a chocolate box.. emptied in half an hour.. from the moment it came in the house.. but goes well with the colour.. and hides the electric wires..
and shall I share a secret.. my first gift is bought.. I went to D&R a mega bookstore for the last issues of some magazines.. and there it was.. an art book.. for my son.. as he doesn't read this blog.. I will post a picture of it.. tomorrow.. as well as one of his own drawings..

I also started to embellish the corners of the home.. this year it will go on every day..
this is the corner of the dining area.. I don't have a mantle.. so here is the mirror mantle.. =))have some other ideas to add to it.. if I can.. and on the table is an antique shop find.. glass flower vase.. round and stylish as I am.. the red leaves and the red seeds were collected during the weekend walk..in the forest and in the arboretum.. birch tree leaves.. flashing red and orange on the back.. hope they will turn in a purplish look when dried out.. I put them in the vase along with some decorations.. my angel looks as happy as a garden fairy.. lying on the leaves..

I.. have too many ideas about the house decorating and cooking and about the blog.. and posts.. that my head is buzzing.. I need a few more of myself..

I have finally started the new year gifts.. crocheted hot water bottle covers.. 10 of them.. pray for me.. to be on time..my daughter decided she did not want the black poncho.. but a very long vest instead.. so these are left on needles.. and therefore I am free to crochet..

how are your projects going.. ??..

I just read Clarice's blog about how hectic it can get this time of year trying to squeeze everything in.

I absolutely love the creamy white and the violet together. Stunning!

Remember too.. You are too blessed to be stressed!

I am already feeling a bit behind on things, but I am going to take a couple of days to concentrate on catching up this week.
I think your tree is beautiful!

see you there! said...

It looks like you have a good start on your decorating. I'm especially charmed by the vase full of birch leaves with the angel/fairy. That could be used anytime, not just the holidays.
