~* A Christmas review & Happy New Year 2014 *~

It's a Christmas review in pictures mainly and I promise that I'm not going to bother you with too many words today:

Got this fabulous old galvanized Dolly Tub in the picture above for Christmas from my parents and for now I'm using it as a table for my galvanized bottle holder which I use as Christmas bauble holder right now. Of course they are both going to live in my garden soon.

I used all my colorful glass ornaments for this vignette cause a little color for Christmas doesn't hurt along all the whites and neutrals and I quite enjoy to look at it

A french Christmas cone hanging at the basement door

I made lots of paper and snowflake ornaments this season, many of them as gifts but some I kept for my decor:

And snowmen, like the little one above and the soldered double sided one which is hanging under the snowball basket below:

Some close ups of my vintage glass tree ornaments:

This years real fir tree in it's full glory above and below:

A view into the Christmas parlor on Christmas eve afternoon, just before the family arrived:

And these I took just yesterday because of the good light of a rare sunny Winter day:

My chandelier decorated as "couronne de noel" hanging over the dining table close up:

The dining table almost ready for Christmas eve dinner:

and again for Christmas dinner the next day:

Got to share a picture of the delicious vegan Christmas dinner with a Tofurky roast that my daughter made/created for us:

And another picture from yesterday when the sun shone into the house so lovely:

These two quite large antique Putz sheep were a Christmas gift from my parents too and the glass filled with old lace doilies and borders is a gift from my sister:

Some silver stars in a pressed glass bowl for New years luck:

And I added a Cari Kraft flash card Happy New New Year banner to my mantle arrangement:

Happy New Year 2014 dear blogging friends and readers!
