A bit more Christmas decorating

Either side of my fireplace we have white open shelved units.

Today I decorated the one on the right.

I used my little fake tree that I bought last year.
I love the zinc pot it sits in.
I decorated it with mercury glass hearts which I've been selling at parties and fairs this year - I have a few of these left so if anyone wants to buy one just let me know (they are £3.50 each).  I also used some favourite white wooden birds and metal snowflakes and a few other little white decorations.

Some large pine cones which I have had for years and years.  I never tire of them.

Some Pottery Barn reindeer candlesticks (I have 4 of these as I bought some in Canada a few years ago and my sister went to America a couple of years later and bought me two back not knowing I already had some).  The other two are on the other unit facing these two!

And even more mercury glass of course - some baubles in a hurricane lamp and some more candle holders.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in our house!

Lily and I started a new Christmas project (involving branches off a tree in our garden) for her bedroom last night.  Hopefully we'll get that finished tomorrow and she can proudly reveal her 'new' Christmas tree.
