A Colorful Christmas..............

.........and you were beginning to think my Christmas 
was all white, cream, grey, silver!

Here are a few more touches of red.
Note, I couldn't throw out the lovely pumpkins so 
am using them mixed with Christmas greens and red 
berries at the front door.

Note I've added a few red glass balls to the 
little tree........they came out and 
grabbed me from a K-Mart sale shelf. 
There were the usual bright red 
 ones and then these, a true deep vintage red. 
Yes, a box of these pretties followed me home!

My pic above is not very good, it's of a beautiful 
glass ornament I received a few weeks ago from a delightful 
friend, Jennifer who lives in Atlanta and came to visit us. 
She is a talented artist making beautiful sterling silver 
bracelets and rings......when not flying the skies 
with a major airline! Thanks again Jennifer, I love 
this ornament.
Below you can see it clearer on the website photo. 
These ornaments are handmade in Atlanta, Georgia featuring 
film negatives in a very unusual way. Go HERE to see more 
of Glaklove's amazing creations.....made in the USA!

My 'Bird in Love' ornament....
with the perfect touch of vintage red!
