wo years ago was the first time I bought any decorations for Christmas since my husband and I had been married. I wanted a themed tree and I chose a spice orange color, pink and white. So everything I bought, I bought for the tree. Now I have this new, rather large house and nothing really with which to decorate it. Blogs to the rescue! I saw a lovely blog recently with some perfect ideas for decorating with Christmas balls. I'm sure it's been done before and I'd seen it before, but this is the year I needed to be reminded. I've got plenty of glass vases of varying types, a couple of candlesticks, the balls intended for the tree and a couple other odds and ends and I'm good to go! at least in the living room...
And on the shelf to the left of the mantle... a tiny bit of cheer.
Now the only problems I have are what to put on the tree
and what to decorate the rest of the house with.

There are, like, a bazillion beautiful mantles over there!!
