It's beginning to look alot like Christmas....

Ok I couldn't wait til after Thanksgiving this year to start putting my decorations up. I'm just too excited and was really excited about getting the kitchen done since I've been collecting over the year for this theme and color that I've chosen for the kitchen. You all know that I redid my kitchen last winter after Christmas so this year I just had to make it as lovely as what my kitchen is itself. So the first picture is of the cupboard. I simply added strands of silver beads on the top ledge and added some glittery snowflakes in front of the plates and added some of the larger robins egg blue balls in the cups and a bowl.
I found this wide mouthed vase at TJMaxx for only $5.99. Let me tell you Hobby Lobby has these as well but wanted either $39.99 or $49.99!! Can you believe that? So needless to say I stuck with my favorite store. I added more robins egg blue balls and some bright shiny silver balls as well then tucked yet a few more snowflakes at the top and that is now my centerpiece for the table.
The glitter Noel sign is also one of my great buys at TJMaxx. I only paid $9.99 for it and it's just perfect cause it has that vintage feel to it and the O is a snowflake in the color of robins egg blue. I used robins egg blue ribbon to hang it from the mirror in the kitchen.
Here's a better picture of the NOEL sign and you can see the reflection of the tree in the background
Ok on this double pie stand....I bought it at Salvation Army months ago and painted it black. I just simply added some robins egg blue larger balls that I had found at Kmart last year and then added some of my vintage Shiny Brite balls in with them. It just adds another touch of glimmer in there.
Now don't go running off anywhere cause I have more to share with you for the sit back and give me a bit while I get the next blog on so you can see more.
