Now that it's November I feel it's OK to start thinking about decorating for Christmas.
Has your mind drifted that way too?
It's always a toss up between styles for me.
I like the natural elements like fresh greenery, pine cones and the smell of cinnamon.
But then I love the sparkle of glitter and bright cheerful colors.
I'm sure this year I'll merge the two styles just like I do every year.
Anyways, that's not really what I wanted to talk about today, so lets jump right in. . .
See this adorable little guy?
I have a weakness for vintage deer.
My collection may be small but they are one of my favorite items to use at Christmas time. I'm always on the lookout - - without much luck most of the time. I'm not ashamed to admit there was squealing when I first spotted him. Poor Ms. Emily was so embarrassed.
I was cool with that - - I had a new vintage deer for my collection!!!!!
Now that I have a new Christmas pretty to play with my mind has turned towards how to use it.
My favorite way is to nestle them in among my glitter houses . . .
and bottle brush trees.
Most of the glitter houses I've made myself, although I do have a few purchased ones.
I have quite the collection and I'm hoping to add to it this year. I've saved an impressive amount of cereal boxes to make them with, even drafted a couple houses of my own and can't wait to get started.
(In case you missed last years posts about glitter houses I have a tutorial here and here. And to see a few more that I have made go visit here, and here.)
I just have to finish up a few project I've been working on and then
It's Glitter Time.
You may not see me for weeks! LOL
Talk to you soon, Robin
p.s. I'm thinking of making a few houses for a giveaway - - anyone interested?
