I'm Christmasing!


Hello, Dear Ones! I'm decorating for Christmas, are you? I know you are and most of you are way ahead of me. But I'm catching up! ;)

Here's one little shelf in my den that I Christmased up. Wish I had a Santie Claus picture there! Hmm...


I've gone with fruits and pine cones in here and poked down that big orange I found in the early fall. I laid down a greenery stick and piled on some fruits ~ faux, of course.


Sugared or jeweled tiny pears and some green thingys. These were in with some potpourri and they smell wonderful, just like Christmas, but I don't know just what they are! ;)


But they are pretty, aren't they?


Okay, one shelf down and how many more to go? If you're finished decorating your house, the invitation is open to come and help me.

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Holly Jolly Christmas

Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
It's the best time of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow
but have a cup of cheer
Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
And when you walk down the street
Say Hello to friends you know
and everyone you meet.

Oh Ho the mistletoe
hung where you can see;
Somebody waits for you;
Kiss her once for me
Have a holly jolly Christmas
and in case you didn't hear
Oh by golly have a holly jolly Christmas this year
~ sung by my shelf

  5. Oh darling Shelia, it's gorgeous! I love this vignette, you don't need anything, it perfect! I'm almost finished, what you saw it's last year's, I moved the tree else where because of my vintage Italian table and the mantel is different too. My Elf was from two years ago, lol! She's going to be 5 next Jan.! Hope you had a swell Thanksgiving. FABBY

  11. Looking good! I will most likely start tomorrow. Hubby has to work today and all of my stuff is in the basement. I'd like his help getting to it all. Looking forward to seeing more of your decorations. I love the fruit and greenery combo. That's so classic!

  20. Shelia,
    Your mantle is just stunning, dear friend! I adore the print over the mantle...but I know what you mean about wishing you had a Santa print. I've always hoped for a snowman print. Perhaps one day! Keep up the "great" work you've begun. Today as I began my Christmsa decor, the song that was ringing through my head was..."Hang high the Holly"..for we NEED a little Christmas now!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  21. I just started today, Shelia! I just can't start decorating for Christmas until Thanksgiving has passed. I hope to have the majority of it all done by the end of the weekend. Then I'll probably be tweaking for a few days!

  22. Ha! Ha! You are well ahead of me. And it already looks amazing.

  25. Sheila, I've been a lurker for a long time and love your blog ... you're as cute as a button!!! I saw Santa art at Kirklands that would look great on your little shelf. Do you have a Kirklands in your area, hopefully? Jackie

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you so much, Jackie, for coming to my blog and I'm just thrilled you like it! Yes, I need to get over to Kirklands and look at those Santas!
    Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  27. Your shelf looks very pretty and colorful, Shelia. I think the painting is beautiful and fits in nicely with the other decorations. If you have your heart set on a Santa picture it would look good, too. I vote for the painting, though. Hope you have a good weekend and get lots of decorating done. I'm busy doing that, too.------ Shannon

  28. oh I like this! I haven't pulled out my ornaments yet, but I am moving away from my more "city'esque" glitz and into this direction. I loved this.

  30. Such a pretty vignette. I especially like the pretty 'jewelled' fruit. We have our family tree up and I hope to get the living room tree up this weekend. I need to work on some vignettes however. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment on the PEACE banner I made. The colours will be a hint to the remaking of my living room tree this year.

  31. Very pretty, Shelia! I got about as far as you, so I've got a long way to go, but my feet hurt so I'm taking a little break! Don't overdo it! :)
