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.

Side two.

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.

I love your pink and silver decorations!
You and your swap partner were on the ball. I'm still finishing up my swap package but it will be mailed on time. Between Thanksgiving and a two day craft show, I think I lost a week somewhere. LOL!
