Hello my friends, welcome to the kick off of our
'Creating Christmas' party.
Today our party starts (4 p.m. MST) over at Trina's where we will be sharing our 'Silver and Gold'. Please hop over and share a link,
or two, or three. :)
This Christmas season I have used a mixture of silver and gold in my living room. If you know me, then you know that I am not a huge gold lover. Yup, I prefer silver. But when it comes to Christmas, everyone knows, (according to Burl Ives); that you just have to have some silver and gold! lol!
I've placed vintage ornaments in my birdcage. Notice the one with both silver and gold? The added band of aqua makes
it extra delicious!
I love this silver aluminum tree gifted to me by one of my sisters a few years ago. I placed it in an old ice cream freezer I painted white with homemade chalk paint.
It's topped with a gold crown made from old screen by
the fabulous Gigi from
My sweet deer from Target have golden antlers and bells.
Another ornament with both gold and silver came from our first Christmas tree in '1972'.
My living room décor is focused on 'Peace on Earth'.
I have used both silver and gold on the mantel.
Again, the banner has touches of silver amongst the gold.
I made this 'peace on earth' banner with the intentions of hanging it from the mantel. It turned out to be too large so I draped it across the living room window. I had to close the blind to get a photo.
Shiny Brites in a wicker baby scale sit on top of the coffee table. Notice another combination of both
silver and gold?
My small collection of tree toppers.
Even the cute hanging ornament gifted to me by Stephanie from
The Enchanting Rose in our mug rug exchange looks pretty with it's silver bling hanging on a golden brass plate.
Hope your day is filled with a ray of golden sunshine and that every cloud has a silver lining! :)
Be sure and share your thrifty Christmas
over at Cecilias My Thrift Store Addiction tomorrow.
