If you've been following my posts this Christmas, you might have noticed a bit of a "tree theme" going on here.

The lights "highlight" the tree shape.


Do you like my tin "garland"?

 My husband cut out a bunch of stars from barn tin for our booth at ANTIQUES DOWNTOWN.  Of course I kept a few.  There are big ones...

...and smaller ones.

What do you think?  Can you see the "tree"?

Important safety note: 
My husband informed me that the scarf might not be "safe" draped there in front of the fireplace...so it has been removed...sniff, sniff.  Some times I get carried away when "styling"...but nothing looks "cute" in a fire...unless its sweet, white and on a stick. Right??

Wishing you very "MERRY" Christmas preparations :)
