Welcome To The 103rd Masterpiece Monday!


I thought I'd get in in a few more pictures of my Christmas decorating while I can.

I don't take pictures of my bookcase for some reason, not sure why.  But here it is, I keep these two picnic baskets on top year 'round. These are actually the ones we used on many family outings and vacations as I grew up. These baskets traveled from San Francisco to San Diego, from the beach to Nevada, and all over California. They're very special to me.
I also decorated a very small tree and a medium tree in addition to the regular one.
This small one sits next to the couch and is from GW.  It's actually plastic and was only 3 dollars. It came with the sparkly stuff on the branches.
All I did was add some dollar store ornaments and  I added the "snow" around it's base.


Here is the medium tree, I found at Country Roads in Orange for only 12 dollars a couple of years ago. 
It fits perfectly on the hall tree in the kitchen. 
This is the first year I've used dried hydrangea blooms on a tree, I think I really like it!

The made the ornaments on it last year.
I decorated this box a few Christmases ago too. The picture is from the Graphics Fairy.

I hope you all have  very blessed Christmas!
