This year's palette is Rust,Gold and Green, the inspiration comes from the curtains that I hung in the dining room for Thanksgiving.   Besides those are 3 of my favorite colors to use in our home.

Curtains on left inspiration...everything exsisting. Cost. $ 0.00

My beautiful angel is surrounded by glass containers filled w/ ornaments and an antique santa tree topper.

Handmade Advent Calendar....my 2 eldest daughters and I made this on the 30th. lol

Coincidentally...those dates 25, 18, 13 are January bdays of myself, my son & my daughter. (signs)

A mini topiary I made from last years rust  tree beads.

This huge pinecone is from Jacinto State Park in California...it got a little smushed in the tubs.

My 3 year old wanted to decorate a tree this year so this is her tree and her fabulous decorating job.

The altar holds my lovely village, underneath are my 3 angels.

And as I said in a previous post....my favorite Christmas possession.  My grandfather Salvatore made this by hand and the pieces inside are from Italy.  Its on display every year!

Even though I dont have any dishware on the table, I'd say that I've tablescapes every available area in this dining room.  Therefore, Im linking up to Susan's Tablescape Thursday as well as StepanieLynn's Sunday Showcase http://www.bystephanielynn.com/2010/12/sunday-showcase-party-w-basket-kase.html

Also my newest favorite blog:

  2. Beautiful decor! Thanks so much for stopping by, so nice to meet you. I love natural and bronze colors too for Christmas. Great job!

  3. Love your advent calendar - such a cute idea! I love using branches too - you can't beat 'free' =) Hope you are having a wonderful week! ~ Stephanie Lynn


God don't like ugly! Neither do I...so if you dont have something nice to say.....keep it to yourself!
