the fields lay like a silver shield...
It was one of the days when the
glitter of winter shines..."
My family and I went away for two days to do some Christmas shopping and other fun things. We got back this evening and are worn out from our exciting trip! We visited antique stores and came away with a few special treasures and then explored some garden centers that were floor to ceiling Christmas decor. It was so much fun and now we are all exhausted! My home is now pretty well ready for Christmas and I wanted to share the first of my Christmas photos! My Mum and I love mercury glass at Christmas time so this little display includes some from her collection along with a beautiful little silver tree and one of our Christmas treasures - an ethereal box that my Mother handmade. It is so exquisite and I love to see it every Christmas. I am sharing this post with My Shabby Streamside Studio's Vintage Video of Holiday Decor and I am also participating in Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I love it!!!
