FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

Still playing with Christmas decor in pink

  Just a quick post to show you what I have added to my pink decor. It all started with a 10.00 $ cream tree I found at GW. I decided to take the small table top pink tree I have in the living room and put it in my "princess room". I hope you like this new one. I did some rearranging of the furniture too.

 I found the wicker tea cart at trade days in Salado among a hole bunch of other treasures.
 I found the umbrella stand many years ago and love to use it for my Christmas trees because I don't like tree skirts.
 I added lights to the mantle. I didn't do it from the get go because of laziness but it doesn't look the same without lights.
        This is a little vignette in my hallway. The small ornaments I bought in Germany 21 years ago.


  This little tree was in the living room. I moved it to the pink room which everybody calls the princess room.





         I just love how the Christmas decor turn out this year which is very special to me, it is our first Christmas in the new house. Even the old stuff seems to fit better in this place, probably because it took 12 years of prayers and hope. I only walk 200 feet to work since my shop is in the back of the property. Just a dream come true. Thanks to Ms Beverly @ http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ for hosting this special party for all of us every Saturday. Go and visit the other pink girls and be ready to have tons of fun.



I thought I will share with you a couple of my favorite Christmas songs. It can be my life song, since Christmas is about Jesus. I love you Lord. Have a very Merry and blessed Christmas, Marta.

Beautiful job Marta. Your pink decor is so inviting, I would love to come for a visit. I also love the idea of using the umbrella stand instead of a tree skirt. Thanks for sharing and have a fabulous Pink Saturday.
