Our Blue and White Christmas

My Blue and White themed Christmas is taking shape.  I'm loving it.  The little trees, the wall arrangement, and the white tree.  All perfect together.  I added the remaining vintage fabric around the base of the tree.  Tonight I will wrap presents in blue, white and silver paper. 

Here are the three frames that I purchased at the thrift store.  I removed the glass, painted the frame and mat with silver paint, used my blue and white fabric as a background, and added beaded snowflakes.  I had fun searching all the store for beaded snowflakes.  You can see more below. 

I purchased this little "peg board" at the thrift store and painted it with silver paint.  It is the perfect place to display some of the beaded snowflakes I found.

The glitter bird and snowflakes are from Walmart.  Vintage blue ornament is from thrift store and other vintage ornaments were given to me by my sister. 

Now I will be adding other Christmas decorations throughout the room.  My DH just finished hanging the Christmas lights.  We bought new ones last year on clearance.  They are the star icicle lights and look wonderful.  Tomorrow is December 1st and I will begin opening my Matchboxes (See link to the left)

You are going to have such a Beautiful Blue Christmas...It already is!!!! All of your decorations are stunning and I do love the vintage look. The Beaded Snowflakes are gorgeous.

The Christmas Quilt Number Two is a Cheaters Cloth that I hand quilted in sort of an outline/doodle style. I did it at least 15 years ago maybe longer. It's one of my favorites as it's so traditional. I have it hanging over Jacksons Play Area. He plays in the Toy Basket all the time and gives me lots of opportunities for some sweet shots.

Great job on your Tree decorating...mine is still naked, but waiting patiently while I work in other areas....maybe tomorrow it will get some ornamentation.

Very lovely colors! I am not sure if I should set up a tree this year or more importantly, I am not sure where to put one with the remodeled mess!
