A subltle but charming way to add a little Holiday Cheer.
Little silver trees from the dollar store look pretty good  in a ironstone bowl with pinecones.
Now this tree was a whole $10 at the thrift store, set with some architectural candle sticks and we have an eclectic setting.... Check the fur bench!
Remember the trivet candle holder from a past post? Well here it is dressed for Christmas.

Well I have been getting a little bit of decorating done here at the shop. Still haven't done anything at home...but first things first. We started with a black, white and silver theme and I plan on having other areas done in color...I promise. Really it is a work in progress and I will probably be adding things up until the big day. My style isn't to really make the whole store over into a winter wonderland,  but I do like it to look festive and fun. Hopefully I have achieved that combo. Stay tuned for more of my Christmas decorations...after I return from my big Antique Faire in Alameada this Sunday. It is up by San Francisco on the Bay...Brrrrr...good thing I got those ear muffs for my birthday!

Thanks too for the lovely Birthday wishes, it means a LOT to me. You all are so sweet. Sue you can bet I did eat cake!! I have a motto that I live by on Birthdays , vacations and any other event I can think of, and it is "SPLURGE and INDULGE"!!! It has worked for me for many years and I share this attitude with any and all of my friends. So let's DO IT! Love to you all, Geo Posted: 2:09 pm on December 4th

Happy Birthday! Have a great time at the show up north. Try coming to Minnesota in the Winter, it's 20 degrees here. You'd love it! Naught!

Go Go,
Hi there Birthday Girl! Love the look of the store for the holidays! Silver and black and white are just beautiful together. And I'm with you, a little every day is just fine for me. Don't seem to manage much more than a few minutes here and there. Thanks for the beautiful post and HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweetie!

Enjoy the day,
