My lovely aunt gave me some red branches and suddenly everything came together. Anthony made me gold & silver swizzel sticks ala these.
Balls of white Christmas lights! They looks so awesome lit-up. I was inspired from another blogger to make words out of gold pipe cleaners and put them on the tree. Merry & bright:) (Actually, all of her decor inspired me, so chic!)
The far corner on top of the bookshelf got the blue tree. I really love this color scheme and might do the whole room this way next year - bright & traditional. I love that the "Life is Good" embroidery I did this year pulls it all together with my salvation army silver wreath, silver & gold pipe cleaners and lots of white books. And of course more silver & gold pine cones.
I could say I'm all set for New Years Eve, but I'm hoping to finish some tissue tassel garland like this.
