Christmas decorating almost complete

I so wanted to decorate in blue,white and silver this year
I even spray painted the green tree white and silver.

I bought some silver and blue angel hair tinsel and little silver baubles
Then painted the gold angel for the top of the tree, silver.

While spray can was in hand, the gold angel from my garden got the silver treatment too.
My hubby said he better not hang around too close or he might get the silver treatment too,

chuckle chuckle


The little musical cherub is too nice white,so she got a reprieve.

All of the blue,white and silver ran out. Soooo, I decided to keep that colour scheme for the sunroom,where we eat Christmas dinner.

I decorated the rest of the house in traditional colours.

Santa and his sled and Rudolf in the hallway.My collection of Myer Christmas bears always come out at this time of year to say hello.

 A simple little wire tree on the coffee table and a tiny angel.

 Friends brought back the little Limoges dish from a recent trip to Paris and I love it.

 I think the lovely decorative red pattern on the cloth was enough without more decorations.

 The mantel was dressed in it's usual swag.

 My collection of Santa's looked fine on the hall table.  Their little legs dangling over the edge

 We have Seven Grandchildren, and their photo's hang in the hallway.  I placed their Christmas baubles with their names and birth year beneath.

 Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the Nativity set,which has been around the whole of my married life.

  It brings visitors great joy,as they enter the front door.

Our Grandchildren have always enjoyed rearanging the figures,and have always taken such great care of them.

I hope you are enjoying preparing for the festivities as much as I am xx blessings j

It is addictive when you have a spray can in your hand isn't it?

Everything is so beautiful! I love the things you painted..and so funny your husband said he was afraid you were going to paint him. My husband always tells people I would paint him white if he would let me. LOL It took me 3 years to collect the blue and silver I have so far. Before that I decorated in pink and white. You should tell your husband he should just be happy you aren't painting everything pink! Thanks so much for sharing all your festive decorating! Now back to thanksgiving work---
