I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas...

With Christmas quickly approaching, I am experiencing those proverbial "visions of sugarplums dancing in my head." As soon as my birthday is over I really start to gear up on Christmas...This year I'm anxious to do something different and unique...something pink!

A few years ago, this photo in the December issue of Martha Stewart's now defunct Blueprint magazine really sparked my imagination.


These gorgeous vintage mercury glass tree toppers are the first on my list to find. I've seen a few on Etsy, but I have yet to purchase one. I actually owe my parents one too, because I smashed one from my grandmother as a child...


A wreath like this one is also on my list of things to make...but I only have four weeks, so I'd better get a move on!


These gorgeous German vintage ornaments will soon be mine...hopefully! They are absolutely exquisite, n'est pas?


I love the idea of displaying the ornaments in interesting vessels around the house. I've just purchased a new apothecary jar just for this purpose...




In terms of natural decorations I have some pretty bowls to fill...I'm thinking dragon fruit, pomegranates and lychee fruit, nature's little christmas ornaments. I can't wait to start the decorating on the first week of December. Lots of crafting, lots of scouring vintage shops, and lots of baking to come! Stay tuned!
