Hello, Everyone! Wow! It’s great to have this post posted above and beyond the obstacles that occurred during the days between this post and the last! Perhaps many blessings are linked to the posting of this content, which would explain all of the ‘warfare’ against it. I’ve posted some of the images of the process of decorating this tree, below. I have a few more to add along with copy/text explaining each photo. I’m delighted to show you the ‘A to Z’ decor process, from the lights-only version of the tree to the final, voluptuously-decorated version of the tree. I’m looking forward to showing you more of my Christmas Decor Styling work after I transition most or all of the daily Caregiver tasks for Mom, to professional Alzheimer’s Caregivers. As always, enjoy the images and post.
Hello, Everyone! It’s great to finally be back with you, and especially for this particular post! Since the time I planned to feature the process of decorating this tree I’ve encountered a series of events that seemed to be designed to prevent me from completing the tree. Also, my Mom’s experiences with Alzheimer’s (I am her 24/7 daily caregiver) require a lot of my attention. I am happy to say that I have persevered and have photos of the tree decorating process to share with you. Now, I have to choose the photos, ‘brand’ them and add descriptions of what you’re viewing. I may add all of the photos in this post or I may share them in several posts; I’m still deciding. So, with Alzheimer’s episodes being what they are, some or all of the photos could be added later this evening. Thank-you for following, stopping by and enjoying this blog! I am looking forward to sharing these photos with you all! I hope you all have been enjoying December, so far and that you experience Christmas in your heart every day.
UPDATE 12/17/2018: Below are photos of the actual decor used to complete the tree. I eliminated some of the decor featured in the Christmas Decor: Eclectic Country Woodland post. Due to the number/quantity of images, I am featuring the ‘process’ photos in the next post; they show the A to Z stages of the tree’s decor.
Hello, Everyone! We are eleven days into November! I hope you’ve been enjoying November, so far. Today’s post features photos of a wreath I styled with a deer theme and wine, green, white and gold colors; traditional colors. Some of my favorite items of this wreath are:
- the white ruffle-top ornaments
- the deer ornaments
- wine velvet ribbon w/ gold beads
Thank-you for stopping by and come again, soon!
Hello, Everyone! I hope you all have been enjoying November, so far. Today’s post features images of a rather voluptuous wreath I styled in non-traditional colors of Turquoise, Chartreuse and Gold. It is one of my favorite styling projects. My favorite ornaments on this wreath are:
- the hot air balloon
- the jewel glitter-covered bulb
- the gold snowflakes
- the turquoise snowflakes
- the turquoise bulb
Some of the other features that are my favorites are the snowflake-covered ribbon and each of the chartreuse ornaments. This wreath does have lights woven throughout the wreath, yet its beauty is most obvious with spot-lighting illuminating it from the front, as well. You will be able to notice this in the photographs, below. Illuminating your back-lit wreaths from the front with a spot-light or two will really show off the wreath’s beauty!
Good Day, Everyone! Today’s post will be part of a series featuring the decorating process of a Christmas tree. The ornamentation for this tree decorating project includes, metallic, plush, mesh, paper, fabric, satin and glass. I know that sounds like an eclectic mix. This eclectic mix is gorgeous when all are combined in a beautiful way. I am looking forward to sharing this process with you all. I’m starting out with photos of the ornaments I’ve planned to use for this project, so far. I hope to share the first photos of this process with you this week!
Now, it’s November 1, 2018 and the delays in getting these initial photos were unexpected (caregiver overload) and sort-of wacky (wrong email address via new phone). Finally, the first photos are below and I think the initial name I will give to this eclectic ornament collection is Luxe Country Woodland. Of course, this name may change in the posts to come. At last, here they are!
Vignette Total View
Hello, Everyone! Today’s images feature the beautiful Christmas decor vignette created by Hydrangea Home. For me, this display is blissful to view. Just like snow falling gently to the ground (or other objects above the ground), this vignette is “quietly-beautiful”:
- each piece is beautiful,
- each piece compliments the other
- the color palette is soft and gentle; peace-inducing
- the overall effect is soothing and de-stressing
This is a Christmas decor vignette that’s great for the primary foyer or primary entrance to your home, so that it’s part of your de-stressing routine as you enter. Enjoy and be sure to visit Hydrangea Home to view much more of their beautiful creations!
