Have you started your Christmas decorating yet? I see that some of you are already finished! Wow! I've been gradually getting things out, and rather than decking ever nook and cranny of our house, this year I'm trying my best to take a "less is more" approach! No easy feat considering that I have so many decorations that I truly love. So, we'll see if I can stick to it or not!
Today I wanted to share with you a Christmas swag that I made last year, and just hung up. It's a long tear drop shape, and after adding some large pinecones, I gave it my special "lightly dusted in frosty glittery snow" treatment.
I added a bunch of my large roses made from vintage sheet music. I've been featuring them quite a bit lately in my posts, I love them so much!
I also added some beautiful German glass glitter musical notes, that I really love!
Some cute little glittery silver snowflakes (bought at Michael's or Hobby Lobby, I can't remember) add even more sparkle.
The musical ornaments are just starting to show some patina, love that look!
The swag is actually bigger in person than it appears in these photos.
Here's one last look.
On a side note, tomorrow our sweet little cocker spaniel Emily is going in for surgery. She tore a ligament in her right hind leg, and for the past 1 1/2 weeks has been hobbling around on three legs, which breaks our heart to see. We took her to three different vets (long story!) and they all said the same thing, that she needs surgery. So we are looking at a very long and intensive rehab that I'll be doing at home with her. Emily isn't "just a dog". She's a huge and very important part of our family (you can see several pictures of her on my sidebar). So, I am anxious, worried, and stressed. I know we'll get thru it, bu I'll be so glad when it's all over with!
Hope you all have a great week!
