Glittery Christmas

I got the inspiration for this wreath from Gabrielle of Just a Girl. I used pine cones that were collected right here in Colorado!! I dusted them with German glass glitter, and added vintage goodies. I love the way it turned out, but want to add a few more things.... The only bad part was that I placed 3 of my favorite vintage mercury ornaments on the wreath, and then forgot that I hadn't glued them on. I picked up the wreath, and they smashed on the floor. I almost cried.
Love the ball with the bells on it....so sweet.
I still need to add ribbon to the JOY, and glue it on!!
These pretty vintage bells are also dusted with Glass Glitter!!!
This little pink bell was found at the thrift store.....I love it!!
I found these lovelies at an Estate sale. I got a whole box...a huge box filled with vintage greenery and mercury picks for $2!!!
I am starting my Christmas decorating tomorrow....I will post pictures as I go. I hope that everyone has a lovely day.

The wreath is wonderful - love all the glitter, of course!

You're starting to decorate for Christmas already?! Oh, my - I'm going to be considered very tardy...I don't put things out until a week or so before the day LOL

Oh Valarie...I am so sorry you broke your ornaments! The wreath is so beautiful. Great job!

I am squealing with delight this morning because I got 25 vintage ornaments off Ebay last night for $10.00 and they are all pink! I can't wait to get them!

Happy Friday Sweets!
