You know those plastic white lights that you buy at the dollar store?
The type light that one can hang in a closet, or any dark area. You add batteries and then push down on the center. That simple!
Along with that, I got out my pretty, very old crystal bowl, and some of my gold, clear, and white ornaments from a few years ago.
I put the little white light in the bottom of the bowl, and then preceeded to cover the light with all the ornaments.
That simple...a lit centerpiece for our dining room table.
I like it when I serve a candlelight dinner. Soft, inexpensive ambience.
I always look forward to hanging the "Merry Christmas" banner, at the kitchen table. This year I hung a few small stars from the chandelier, because...
I had a "star" theme going this year. A simple vignette on my kitchen counter.
Thank you for stopping by. I have so enjoyed seeing how you all decorate for the holiday and reading about your family practices and traditions. So much beauty is shared via the blogging world and I find it so inspiring.
One more item, I would like to share. At a Christmas get-together on Sunday evening. I received this unique and beautiful canvas picture. At first I did not realize that it would light up, by flipping a tiny switch. It comes alive when it is lit, and the best part, the Christmas tree lights flicker. One more "star" to my theme, as the star on top of the tree, is the focal point of this scene.
What an inviting, cozy, and warm scene the picture depicts. It will be a treasure to me for years to come.
