Festive Whites

Hello everyone,
      I am back with a few little touches of festive whites that I have been putting around our home to get it ready for the holidays.I am using my son's point and shoot camera for these pics but the good news is I have a new camera on the way and I can't wait to get it!
  I added some greenery from around the garden to an old chamber set that my father gave to me years ago.I love the little feather trees too

A little church from TJMAXX.

A music box that my daughter gave to me.
A heavy cement cherub sits on our banister. I have added greenery and lights to it and a candle for the cherub to hold-but only for the picture for safety reasons.

You might have noticed that I love angels.
This is a wooden angel that also came from TJMAXX.

Just a peek at some of the little festive touches that are appearing around our home for the holiday season.

It is so mild here that you would not think that it is almost December. The snow that we had last week is long gone and when I step at onto the balcony at night to see the stars you could be fooled into thinking it is spring!

Thank you for visiting me,

Beautiful whites Carolyn! You have some sweet angels. Hasn't the weather been beautiful? It's supposed to be 15 in Freddy tomorrow! I do hope we get a bit of snow soon though. Beautiful post. Blessings.

Everything looks so so pretty with all the whites... and i love the feather trees, they're wonderful. That rusty little lamb is such a sweetie, and look at that great Santa face on the wall, he's got to have one of the best santa faces ever... !

Such pretty Christmas touches in your home, Carolyn. The weather is amazing, isn't it? I wish we could have this all winter! I would make a very good Snowbird!

Dearest Carolyn,

Always a pleasure to have a peak into your lovely decorated rooms. What a treasure you keep from your Dad! Always a dear memory, worthwhile to decorate around for the Christmas season.
Love to you,

Hi Carolyn!

Well, Midge is here shaking his head at how many things we have alike! Haha But then you already know that! :-)

I have the very same White Wheat chamber set that his mom gave to me years ago. And the angel music box we picked up nearly 30 years ago in Virginia at a place called 'The Williamsburg Pottery'. Your wooden angel w/trumpet is very similar to a wooden lamp that we have on our bedside table. I have two similar cherubs to the one that you have on your stairway (nice idea!) and the Victoria Santa pic is just like the one I have that was gifted to me by my friend Gail - done in needlepoint! I have the same Victorian tags, too! And there's more, but you get the pic - spoooooky.....Lol

Darcy's camera takes pretty good pics, my friend! Lovely. Lovely. Lovely. The white is just sooo gorgeous. It's almost as though I can feel the snowflakes falling all around me...Love the lighting that you photographed in today.

You have a lovely home and to decorate it in white isn't bad at all. Lovely figurines and things you have around you. I too love angels but I think yours are much nicer, lol.
Hope you have a nice day.
Love Elzie

Fantastic! I am totally amazed with those decors. You're so creative and have plenty of ideas. Did you design them all alone? African Mango
