Sooooooo pretty! I have a set of salt and pepper shakers that are very similar to yours. I found them in an antique shop and I SO adore them!! This is all so gorgeous! I could live in your house!!

Have a great week!

Hi Chrissy,
thanks for coming by today! Your pictures look so beautiful! I also really love that little silver bird! I have some silver silverware (does that sound normal??;o) ) anyway, I need to put it out & around like you did...it looks so nice.

Thanks for asking if we are well...we are almost over the hump. I was sure my daughter had the flu but when her soar throat was not getting better I thought I better get her in for a strep test & sure enough...she had it! So antibiotics & hopefully she'll be back in the saddle tomorrow!

Take care!

Chrissy-I love seeing what you use to decorate. It is so different from the way I have my home and that is what is so special. I get inspired to use things in ways I've never thought of. There is a peace about your style that I love.

How ironic that I finally have a few minutes to get on the computer and you stop by and say hello. I have missed everyone. It has been really crazy around here. Hopefully I will have more time soon to catch up with everyone. I love the salt shakers, crown and keys and all the gorgeous thing you are showing. You always put the most interesting things together. Thanks for stopping by, I will be back soon. Hugs, Marty

Cindy said...

Such lovelies, dear Chrissy, I love the look of the old with the cedar greenery. You do such a great job of putting these together. You just gave me an idea, too. Thanks, hugs to you, Cindy S.

Patricia said...

What beautiful bling !!!

Tracey said...

Just gorgeous Chrissy, really, really lovely!!! We have such similar tastes (boy are you going to love the Jeanne d' Arc mags)!!

Les Cotrions said...

Hello Chrissy! Nice to hear from you! You made such beautiful arrangements and your salt & pepper shakers are faboulous!
Warm greetings!

Cindy said...

Me again, the idea that it gave me was to put some evergreen sprigs around my silver decor. At first I thought, "I wish I could do that, but I don't have a cedar tree in my yard", then it hit me that I did have a Spruce tree and that would work almost as well. I will post some photos next week. Hugs, Cindy S.

Blondie's Journal said...

Chrissy,
I haven't been able to blog for awhile, so I'm playing catch up. Your Christmas pretties are amazing AS USUAL! You really have the knack girl. In my house that greenery would be all over the place so I'm glad I get to come over and see your pretty house and think....someday. Lisa

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Gorgeous as always. I'm working on getting out "all" the Christmas decor around the house. Going to go over the top this year. Haven't done that for a "long" time. I still can't believe I'm starting before Thanksgiving, but have a feeling I must..hope all is well your way cutie..hugs ~lynne~

Hi, Chrissy... what a lovely post! It helped to get me into the Christmas spirit. :-)

Thanks, too, for your encouraging words on my blog. I finally got a temporary fix on my internet troubles, and I'm SO thankful.

Have a great day...
