The tree is done! Yay! It is amazing how artificial greenery with bits of glass and baubles can change the atmosphere of a room. Even my girls just seem cheerier when the tree's lights are on. This will be a photo heavy post...I hope you enjoy our collection as much as we do!
|thinking of adding some additional mercury garland for next year...to make it a bit more drapey|
Blown glass ornaments are hard to find these days but so worth it. I'd love to have a complete tree with just clear glass ornaments. Someday, when the girls are grown!

|One of my Large (4.25") Faberge Eggs. I collect one each year.|
|Vintage Christmas Indent|
|more vintage indents and a glass icicle|
All in all my tree is a combo of Vintage Indents, Blown Glass, and Mercury Glass ornaments. Whatever that style is I am not sure...but it sure does glitter something gorgeous!
I really do need to focus on Thanksgiving this week...like cleaning the house for my guests? But, the crayons for the crayon rolls I am planning on making have arrived and I'd like to work on those as well. As one of our guests will be sleeping in my sewing room I may have to relocate Nina upstairs to do a bit of work at night? Hahahahaa...we shall see...
Linking up to Making Christmas over at Janine's - how is your holiday prep going?
