More Christmas Pictures

Here are some day light pictures of my table scape. I had several people ask me about how I did it. So...the centerpiece is a glass platter (I bought at a garage sale at Lake Tahoe). It is on my grandmother's glass cake stand. Silver beading, silver glass ball ornaments, glittered stars and snow flakes, and a lighted wired garland that I bought at Costco that I doubled. The Snowflake is a tree topper I bought at Target after Christmas last year.
The center square is a square vase turned upside down with a red pillar candle in it.
One of my Nativity based ornaments...another after Christmas purchase.
Oh, and I love these. I bought more to add to my tree this year. I call them light cozies. They are light Brillo pad balls that fit over your little mini lights.
Here it is in my hand.
A few close ups of my grandmother's ornaments. I think this is of Jesus calming the sea. It is very old and was hand made in a small town in Germany. Martha wrote an article about an ornament just like this one. Quirky but great right?
I have quite a few of these great little birds. Not reproduction...the real deal from my grandmother.
Stockings on the railing.
Oh, these are great. Stained glass stars that my husband designed and made. They are wired so they light up at night. This year he lined the right side with red stars and the left side with white. Different colored and different size stars are in the trees.

See...don't you think they are great too?
Here is a closeup of the bubble lights that are around my front door.
That's it for now. Merry Christmas!
