I have lots of Shiny Brite ornaments but I always need more.
Funny, because I hated these kind of ornaments when I was a kid.
I thought they were way too ordinary.
But now they are what I want on my tree.
Oh...I'm no where near this put together for Christmas this year - yet.
These are photos from my Christmas 2010.
(you can see the rest of my Christmas decor on my projects link up in the top menu of my blog)
As for this year, I'm still pulling stuff out and trying to decide what I want where.
I didn't put up a tree in 2011...I had a lot of personal things going on with my best friend dying
and my sister being ill and losing my son/dog - Newman.
I can't even remember last year's Christmas hardly at all.
I was just in a daze.
But I'm anxious to put up decorations this year though.
So I've been searching for more Shiny Brites to add to my collection.
And thinking of new ways to decorate.
I didn't have my dining room furniture all painted last time.
This will be the first time I've decorated this dining room for Christmas...so that will be fun.
I went browsing online for Shiny Brite baubles.
Even better if you can get them in an original box.
Fabulous wreaths made by GeorgiaPeachezWreaths.com
One of her wreaths appeared on the Christmas cover of Romantic Homes Magazine.
I somehow have not seen this issue yet.
I must find it.
Right now I'm trying to decide what to do on my mantel.
I love my forest of trees but I've done this for several years and I think it's time to change it up.
I have no idea what I'll do, really...except I think I may hang my own
Shiny Brite wreath on the mirror.
That might be a good start.
