It's beginning to look a bit like Christmas!

Welcome back to Boxwood Cottage dear friends and readers where it's already looking a bit like Christmas these days :)

 So I thought I might as well share with you these beginnings, which are in no way finished yet. The Christmas decoration evolves a bit more with each day we're coming closer to December.

 Love my old flea market trumpets in the photo above especially at this time of the year!

 Ann's gorgeous paper cone above finds a home in my house every year at Christmas time!

 Silver, snowy Whites and Glitter are my favorites this time of the year.

Some of my soldered ornaments hanging in front of a mirror!

Stars dangling in front on my mantle and a winterey village on top of it with the old wooden church a flea find from ages ago.

Since we already had some frosty nights I had to bring in some of my plants which is how Miss Petunia  got a new hair do ;-)

A little vignette with an old Santa postcard above and a vintage opera glass.

Only the white pumpkins are still left from the Halloween decor and I think I'll keep them a bit longer. Notice the Anthropologie cups in the white cupboard spelling x-mas and the burlap cushion spelling "The bag of Santa Clause" in Dutch language.

Some close ups ( the first taken through my chandelier) of the mantle winter village, although I think that I'm going to change the mantle decor again soon and put out and on my collection of vintage silver glass Christmas tree toppers instead.

Sweet white gifts from sweet friends hanging from a chicken wire frame on the wall over my stair case, like the sweet angel bust and the stocking from darling Paula:

The last picture of today probably is my fave shot and my fave vignette so far. Love the beautiful bottle brush star with the silver tinsel wreath on top and the glittered Merry Christmas sign which I got sent from dear Christmas Carole over at Maynard Greenhouse last Christmas. And there are more sweet gifts from dear friends in this photo like a putz sheep and a glittered cone from Madai, a tag and bottle brush trees from Ann or an altered tin box from Lisa and I treasure all these gifts from my lovely far away blogging friends very much!

Wishing all my American readers and blogging friends a wonderful Thanks Giving feast this week!

Will be back soon with more Christmassy inspirations if you still want me too?

Hugs to you
