late christmas trimmings

better late than never! now that that the 12 days of Christmas have passed, i still want to show you some of the holiday vingettes i created..hanging vintage transom window, rustic chandelier..lots of outdoors brought indoors...i added real pine and cedar boughs from the yard to the chandelier hanging in the front window, tiny lights and mercury balls...i have since taken the greens down and replaced with vines..and replaced mercury balls with vintage lamp crystal prisms...still magic! i love the country french look and finally found the right place for my oak (heavy!) corbels, they are now very heavy creamy white, can't decide if i should rub a bit off and antique...i also created shelf above, using ordinary lumber and adding some ornate trim...makes great place for Dickens Village to light up the night...except now of course a couple lites have gone out and i will again have to fetch the ladder~~
