Holiday Sparkle

Christmas 2010 025 cropInspired by Karla and Beth’s Romantic White Christmas, I decided to add a bit of sparkle to my holiday decorating.  A table top tree from Home Goods proved the perfect starting point, but what to put on it?  And then, an “aha” moment.  I snatched the old jewelry box that housed my vintage rhinestone stash, and let the “blinging” commence!Christmas 2010 023 crop

Some vintage angels, pearls and a lovely box made by the multi-talented Miss Lynn. A touch of old lace adds just the right amount of texture, don’t you think?Christmas 2010 046 crop

A final vignette featuring a wonderful vintage Santa and just a wee bit more bling…..Christmas 2010 030

The little “Charlie Brown” style tree provided the perfect spot for some rhinestone bracelet garlands!  The crown-embellished candle is a gift from my dear friend, Suz.  Lots of sparkle, old lace, and memories of friends…. sounds like a perfect holiday in the making!
