Festivedence


I keep sayin’ that things are looking more festive and people are callin’ me on it. Where’s the photos?

Well, in all the chaos, I decided what the hell and did indeed drag out my camera. You can follow the festive as it begins to appear. Just remember, you asked for it.

Why look?! There’s a tree. (Yes, this is supposed to be one of the outside trees but it appears instead to be replacing our sad little Charlie Brown fiber-optic tree.)

The poor thing. The mother has jammed so much Victoriana onto it that it is leaning slightly to the left.

Meanwhile, things are gathering at the fireplace, too. Some nice lighted garland and two candle lights (covered by hurricane shades) brighten things up. Plus, there's Santa, a sleigh and a reindeer to get things going, along with a pair of bright brass trees.



But the real beauty here you can’t even see. It’s a lovely little cord that accommodates both the garland and the candle lights and is wired to a button that controls all three.

Push on. Push off. No unplugging everything in the universe or vice versa.

LOVE it! Just $5 at Wal-Mart.

You have a little tree, like me! I love "little" trees. But that FIREPLACE, girl! GORGEOUS!

Vicki said...

Beautiful! Tell the mother I can still see some green escaping from the tree. ;) Your pictures are magazine worthy.

MG -- Thanks. i'm kinda loving it!

Jayne -- Thanks. It's getting there.

Ann -- Yep. It's all we have room for, and we don't even really have that. Thanks -- I'm happy with how the fireplace came out. :-)

NV said...

V -- DON'T encourage her. Jeez. :-)

I am in love with your fireplace. Is the woodwork above it original? It's gorgeous!

NV said...

Liz -- Thanks! No, I wish. The wood above is actually from a 19th-century home that the mother was able to save. I've always loved that piece and especially how it makes the room seem taller.
