~ Trees n' Shells ~

I have several small trees scattered around my house. This was one small advantage to moving someplace smaller. My decorations no longer fit in the rooms they used to fit in ... and now I get to enjoy them upstairs too. I love this little white feather tree on my dresser. I'm not gonna lie to you ... it's fake.

To make up for that I have some very real and wonderful pieces of nature on the dresser as well ... to sort of balance out the fake.

When I lived in Arizona, seashells represented vacation time. Now they represent ... home.

Another little tree in my bedroom with a dusting of fake snow. Today is rainy and cold and cozy. I'm thinking that snow seems very real indeed.

This guy in my guest room is actually a companion piece to one of my Santas. I hope they don't mind that I split them up this year.

This tree in the guest bathroom is also offset by a bowl full of shells.

I am loving all the turquoise that seems right at home with my Christmas decorations this year.

Mostly I am loving Christmas this year.

  1. all my trees this year are table tops. So much easier to deal with. Love all yours! I have always wished I could decorate in a beach theme for Christmas. Lots of seahorses and shells. :) Thank you so much for visiting.

  2. Lovely! Everything is so fresh and sunny. We have had about 3 sunny days so far this December. Your home is a spirit lifter.

  3. Love your trees and shells - how beautiful, Mary.

    Happy holiday hugs,

  4. Hi Mary, thanks for sharing all your lovely decorations. Do you have a big tree also? I just have a tabletop one as I live in an apartment and large ones take up too much space. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
