If you read yesterdays post then you know I was getting a little peeved with Christmas decorating this year, but I did manage to get over it. I've been really busy decorating and working at my shop, The Vintage Abode, as I am having an open house on Saturday and of course I want it to look especially nice for that. I'm still chiseling away at decorating my house for Christmas. Normally, I am already finished a week into December but this year I feel I am constantly playing catch up, but I have yet to catch up.
Even if it's subtle, I like to add something Christmas-ish to each room. Last night I added some purple and gold glittered ornaments to a wreath which hangs over a large mirror that runs the length of our Master bathroom.
As you all know, I am an avid collector of transferware and have it displayed throughout my home. Here, in the bathroom I have green and purple transferware plates over the mirror.
Here is a pic taken before I added the ornaments. You can see the post I did on my Master Bath HERE.
The purple ornaments are shatter proof but still feel, and look like glass. They're very inexpensive and I've seen this style everywhere I've seen ornaments this year.
In the picture below, those hand shaped things you see hanging from the bottom of the wreath are antique glove forms...in case you're wondering.
I sure wish this pic below had come out better. I like the angle with the block glass window in the background. The color is off. I'm definitely no photographer, a skill I sure need to work on and a subject I need to study further! Someday I hope to take p~e~r~f~e~c~t~l~y beautiful photos!
What do you all think of purple as a color used in Christmas decor? I personally love it and tend to decorate to match the other colors in the room I'm decorating. Most of my Christmas decor is gold, red, burgundy and olive green but I love all the wonderful color in the stores this season.
