Holiday Decorating * Shabby Chic Chandeliers

We had our first snow of the season on Saturday night. We woke up to a beautiful, sunny winter wonderland. Early in the morning all of the trees were blanketed in snow but as the day wore on, as you can see, most of it melted. I was inspired to get out and decorate the front of our house. I am not only using pink inside this year, but outside as well. (We'll see what all of the neighbors think!!). I filled the window boxes with greens and added bows. I still need to paint a bunch of pinecones pink to add but they were all too wet. I picked up the skates at a junk shop and sprayed them pink. Someone gave me the toboggan with the suggestion to paint it white and add a wreath. I loved that idea!! I don't like how sparse it is under the boxes but I have yet to come up with any ideas on how to fix that. I need a landscaper to come in the Spring.

Since this photo, I changed the silver bow to pink.

This is by the back door. It still needs stuff but I ran out of daylight yesterday.

I got a big shipment of beautiful, inexpensive chandeliers last week. They are acrylic crystals, not glass, but you really don't notice. There are several styles, colors, and sizes. I will be adding them to my site later today.

This is a large size, the ones below are smaller. Stop by my site and check them out!! Great in a bathroom, girl's room, anywhere. These are the best acrylic chandeliers I have ever come across. They can be easily hardwired ...

Thanks for visiting ...

Holiday Decorating

I just love the holidays like so many others. I am not a traditional holiday decorator though. My house comes alive with pinks, whites and turquoises every december. Now I can appreciate the traditional colors and sometimes wish my little cape had an extra room for red and green but I am shabby chic to the core. As it gets done, I will post some photos. For some reason, maybe because I have been in our shop alot and have also been adding so many fun things to my site, I am totally in the holiday spirit today. I had my boys pull the pumpkins and mums from the window boxes and I hope to start filling them with greens tomorrow. Instead of my ususal silver or blue bows, this year I am going to do pink outside too. ( Don't tell my family ... they already put up with the pinks inside, not so sure what they'll say about outside). I wish it didn't get dark so early ... guess I'll have to catch the spirit again tomorrow!!
