In the centre of our living room we have what I suppose you would call a chandalier … you know, one of the plastic ones for around £30! … Anyway it is now covered in silvered tiny baubles hanging from vintage gray velvet ribbon and finished with antiqued, silvered stars.  Although it looks absolutely gorgeous it hangs roughly at shoulder level even for a dwarf like me!  The answer, to put a very small table underneath and decorate it with more of the things I love ….

…. and so the raiding of the bedroom commenced.  All of the pressed glass vintage cake stands, tiny jugs and pewterware were combined with a few more silvered ornaments, baubles and church candles, before adding delicate flowers in very soft tones.  I also couldn’t resist these gorgeous carnations.

I am so looking forward to a weekly visit to my local florists to carefully choose a few blooms for each of my Christmas themes.P

Perhaps I ought to mention that the upcycled cupboad on which the hand tie is displayed is actually my ribbon cupboard … it’s about 5ft tall and 4ft wide lol …

BTW Santa’s sleigh is actually our rowing machine :D

Always With Love … Denise xxx
