Pink and Silver Bedroom tree...and a Tag Swap!
Pink and Silver...
Although I love my vintage Christmas to be as Red and White as possible...there is just something about vintage Pink and Silver. There is a kind of 60's elegance about the color combination that is hard to resist. So a few years ago I began decorating my bedroom with pink and silver decorations.
My bigger tree.
Most of the glass ornaments are vintage, but I used a lot of sparkly Wal*mart snowflakes...
And a few aqua Shiny-Brites as accent.
What started the whole pink and silver thing...
...Two pretty pink and silver corsages.
I use these for the tree toppers.
Half of my dresser. I love birds and nests.
The little nest is in a top hat
Second half of dresser.
I added blue birds and painted a sparkly blue house to accent the pink.
My night stand is a little blurry.
I used 3 boxes of tiny Shiny-Brite balls on the two-foot silver tree.
The downside of trees in your bedroom...falling asleep with the lights on...
then fumbling for the plugs at 2:00 a.m. =D
A Very Cherry Tag Swap...
This year I participated in the Christmas Tag swap at It's A Very Cherry World!
My swap partner was Toni from Blue Mountain Rise .
Side one of the tag I made for Toni.
It's hanging on my kitchen Candy Tree...
next to my favorite ornie...a sparkly Diet Coke can.
The cute and yummy goodies I received from Toni!
(Some of the hand-wrapped chocolate didn't make it until the picture...lol!)
This has been such a fun experience.
I've really enjoyed meeting new bloggers this way.
Thanks again, Sue, for the opportunity to participate and meet Toni.
It's a crispy blue morning on the Wasatch Front.
Enjoy your morning where ever you may be.
