The Merry & Bright Magical Season Begins

Hello Friends,
I am so  glad you stopped by today. Here are my First of the Month pics .starting off with my kitchen table decor.  This idea for a  magical snow globe theme came together as I collected cute ornaments form the GW thrift store,during the last few visits.I used recycled food jars & most of the bottle brush trees I already had. At first ,I was going to paint the jar lids ,but I started to like the open look better. The snow is plastic flakes that are sold in  a bag, to decorate things like miniature Christmas villages.  I added the candles and I was enchanted by the magical effect.

I found this  " Cherished Treasures Boots the Reindeer" for only $.50.

I already had this vintage little snow guy on hand .

I hope your Christmas Season is Merry & Bright ! I will leave you with this wonderful Bible  verse about God's gift to us.

"For God so loved the world that  He gave His one and only Son,that whoever believes in Him shall not perish  but have eternal life."
John 3:16

  13. Good morning to Myrna,
    Wow! What a tour! I love the little gnome with the doll which I think is Pinocchio right? At the little cute girl, that made me smile. I just hung the same ornament on the tree yesterday! I am totally smitten with those Lalaloppsy Dolls (I think that's what they call them). I bought my first two a few weeks ago!
    Your home is cozy and warm and the front yard is beautiful.
    What a merry time of the year, once again.
    Blessings and love flow all around the world.

  16. Your table setting is magical Myrna. Looks a lot like Christmas where you are!

  17. I'd love to attend a Christmas "do" like the one with the banjo player and others musicians. That looks like a lot of fun! I do love the sunset shots, the Christmas decor and the beautiful creamer set you got in the giveaway. I'm sure you will enjoy all the lead up to Christmas.

  18. Myrna, I enjoyed seeing all your photos. Your decorations are really pretty and it was nice to see all the seasonal decorations elsewhere too. That Christmas celebration sounds like it was a lot of fun! :)

  19. Wonderful photos as always Myrna! I adore all your little globes, so darling and you've got me all inspired. What did you use for the snow at the bottom? It looks like coconut :) You lucky, how fun that must have been to go the historic farm and see all the decor and festivities.

    Happy holidays!
