Pine cones are so beautiful!  A variety of beautiful craft-creations can be made with them. Today, I’ve featured beautiful candles with pine cones.  If you don’t have pine trees in your yard, you may find them at your local parks or even scattered on the lawns of local businesses.  I have done so and simply ask the manager or owner for permission to collect them, first.  Earlier this week, I had the chance to collect more pine cones from a local park and one of the staff, an elderly gentlemen, volunteered to collect pine cones stating that it’s enjoyable AND relieves the pain of arthritis in his knees!  What a great mindset he has & I told him so.  If you intend to collect pine cones, be sure to

  • keep cardboard boxes and/or bags handy to place them in
  • carry protective gloves to wear as you collect the pine cones
  • literally bake them in your oven on a baking pan dedicated to baking the cones and not food (baking the cones kills hidden bugs) OR
  • wash pine cones in water to get rid of bugs (the cones with close until they dry) and then set them aside to air-dry

My goal was to get this published on 3/25/2017. However, it’s actually a few hours beyond 3/25 into 3/26. In keeping with my ’25th’ theme, I plan to post on the 25th of each month and perhaps the 5th and 15th, as well. Thank-you for following this blog! I am delighted that so many follow it and while I believe in my ‘It’s Ever Christmas’ dream I’m AMAZED that you all are ‘here’ in it with me as I build it into reality! Again, thank-you so much!

After I saw the gorgeous living room’s photograph (above) on Pinterest, I discovered the article that the living room photo is part of, ‘House Tour: Ken Fulk Creates A Montana Guesthouse That’s The Ultimate Winter Getaway’.  The article contains a collection of  gorgeous photographs that the three photos (on display here) are part of.  Each photo displays Christmas Decor Styling that is simple, ‘quiet’ and perfectly styled by Ken Fulk.  My favorite of these gorgeous photos is the living room/den.  This room’s staging/styling makes it ‘feel’ so inviting for me because of the glowing fireplace, the super-plush garland, the twinkling Christmas tree viewed in front of the beautiful windows with snowy view of more evergreens and the comfy-looking chairs a body can sink into!

The Victorian-ish Christmas Trees

Today, I am featuring trees decorated in what I’m calling a Victorian-ish style. Each one is very lovely via its own luxe ornaments, accents, accessories, placement and other staging!  In my imagination I can ‘see’ these gorgeous trees in the rooms of a beautiful chateau.  In addition to the trees, I like the ‘NOEL’ and stockings display on the mantle of the fireplace and those gorgeous Palladian windows!  As always, enjoy!

Snowfall, Snowflakes, Ribbon & Trees

Lights are one of the fun features of Christmas decor which creates the delightful, and often heavenly, ambiance we enjoy so much. Below, are images of gorgeous commercial lighting displays that I think you all will enjoy!
