Slowly getting in the swing.....

I am having trouble getting my Christmas spirit "on" this year!  Usually, I start buying gifts in July and am getting excited about all of the Christmas hub-bub about now...not this year!  But, I can feel it....slowly....slowly creeping in.....I'll get there, I just may have to play a little "catch-up".

In the honor of Blue Monday, here is my very beginnings of Christmas decorating 2010!

altered book 001 It started with this two tiered wire basket and some of the Hydrangeas I dried this year.

altered book 002I added some shinny silver Christmas balls, some ribbon and some lace.....and set it all on a silver platter...easy peasy, as they say!

altered book 005 altered book 004 

altered book 006

I'm not sure it's staying on the dinning room table but if it does it will be surrounded by a few Snowmen, of various sizes and descriptions!!

Joining the parties at Between Naps on the Porch Metamorphasis Monday and Faded Charm's White Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to comment.

Beautiful cool silver and white, which reminds me of snow, and I am intrigued by the amaryllis which is showing signs of growth.
