More Holiday Home Tour

Pin It Now!

I think this simple arrangement with the silver bowl and cloche is my favorite thing I've done this holiday season. I love finding things I already have and putting them together in a different way! There's that plastic snow again!

I grouped all my crystal apothecary jars together on my coffee table and filled them with candy. I had these spread out between the living room and the dining room but now they make much more of a statement all grouped together!
They really sparkle in the afternoon sun!
The one on the left is from Vintage and Vogue, the middle one I bought years ago at Tuesday Mornings, and the one on the right is from Costco...my ex bought that one for Lauren to give to me for Christmas either last year or the year before....my memory is so bad!
See the big ivy topiary on my back step in the photo below? That's the reason I'm in so much pain! I moved that when they put the new windows in. I've moved that thing so many times over the years but this time the soil was really wet which made it sooo heavy! I should have asked for help...

I'll be sharing Christmas decorating photos all week long so please come back! You can see more homes on the Holiday Home Tour on Tracey's~Notes from a Cottage Industry blog!

Cindy, I wonder if you would mind sharing where you found the little silver deer. I need a couple, but the only ones I have found are too big for where I want to display them.
Everything is looking so great. Love your Candy jars...so pretty.

Hi Cindy!
I feel like I'm in a winter wonderland when I see your decor.
What a wonderful idea with the cloche, the silver tray, the balls and the snow. I love it too death.
I am into that fake snow myself this year....what's up with that?
Maybe because it looks so much better than it used to.

Shelia said...

Oh, Cindy! Your home is a Winter Wonderland! Everything is so beautiful! Hope you're feeling much better now.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love your beautiful blues...they are so soothing to look at, wonderful eye candy I guess you could say and you can keep them up well into the new year - anyway from where I live you could as we get most of our snow in Jan./Feb. Happy Holidays to you.

Sandy said...

Everything is just so lovely! Your home is like a "Winter Wonderland"! How can you get it done so quickly and you work too? I'm retired and haven't even started interior decorating yet. I think I'm getting slower now that I don't have to "fit" projects into a work schedule. I'm looking forward to more beautiful scenes from your home.

And, your apothecary jars look fantastic in a grouping.

Susan B said...

So beautiful! My favorites photos are the first and last one. Thank you for sharing.

Linda Q said...

Cindy, looking so pretty around your place, so in season, love it all. Your apothecary jars are great grouped.
Yes, don't do that again, I have learned those lessons the ouch way too. You need it on one of those rolling plant things, so it would move easier if need be.
Take care, thanks for showing us more pretties.
I am almost ready to reveal around here! I am slow this year.
Linda

Cindy@Cutepinkstuff said...

Beautiful! Not having Christmas dinner at our house this year, so I'm not decorating much. Love seeing all your pretty crystal and glass. Thanks for stopping by to see the blue and white turkey plates we love so much!

Leanne said...

Everything is so pretty. I love all the crystal and the little glittery deer at the end.

JANITA said...

I love those crystal apothecary jars and those plates (or what they are) with a glas cope on top. I wonder if I could find only a glas cope, because I have plates and trays that I could use with it.

Pearl Maple said...

Well done, your cloche treatment is simply beautiful, as is the rest of your thoughtful decorations but that one sure got my eye.

Frippery said...
