Winter feeling and Christmas decor 1

Here are a couple of starfish I picked up at Lillian August in CT at Thanksgiving with silver on them. I could have bought them all they were so pretty! I have the smaller one in the dish with my other shells (Target for the table) and some silvered beads. The two white dishes are milk glass with a silver plate bowl in between. I got two paper houses this year (my hope is to expand the collection and make some). I had the trees in my collection (always pick some up and add snow). The one on the left is from a local gift shop and the one on the right is a $9 find at Cracker Barrel. They are approx 8" in ht. I like that scale. They are placed in my bookshelf.
In my china closet/used as bookshelf, I also placed a recently found cone silvered tree from the dollar store!
I picked up these two items recently for the deeper pewter color. The small tree is from Cracker Barrel ($3).
This is a collection of a few trees. I like to see them like this, reminds me of looking out my aunt's window in Nova Scotia as snow was falling, there was woods across the street from her home and I would just sit and watch the trees fill up with snow. So, now I love to make containers with trees placed around my home for Christmas.

The starfish is beautiful. My little mind was figuring a way to pick some up at Michaels and try to paint them.

As usual, your decorations are fabulous.

I bought three of the little houses the other day at Cracker Barrel. They were marked down. I have one from Wal-mart I bought a couple of years ago. Rue at Rue's Peanut Butter and Jelly Life blog has painted wooden bird houses that look so much like the paper houses.

Looking forward to seeing your paper houses, Mary Ruth.

Marked down? Geech, and here I am cleaning my house to show it! Oh well!
I will Check Rue's houses! Thanks!
I love crafts, so if I can make something myself, I enjoy it even more after it is done!
Thanks for stopping by!

I am getting some inspiring ideas from your mantel. I've been wanting to go to Home Goods to check out their things, I hope I find some inspirations.

I just love trees, so I tried to put as many around me as I could. I can't wait to see what you come up with! I'll have to check your blog out soon!
Thanks for visiting!
