The Glitter Tree

We’ve always had a “glitter tree” in Hodgepodge.  The ornaments from Wendy Addison for Midwest—Seasons of Canon Falls are my favorites (no big surprise), but every ornament on the tree was selected for the qualities it brought to the  tree. 

080

Love this pipe cleaner snowflake!

082

A pearl filled dream.

084

A Wendy Addison design.  “Nest.”

086

The glass glitter, mixed with real silver is so appealing!

088

A beautiful star.

089

“Peace on Earth”

090

My favorite glitter, glass Wendy Addison bird!  Isn’t she beautiful?

092

What can I say?  So simple and special.

093

A beautiful porcelain cross.

094

A classic church.

095

More Wendy Addison glitter—a peace dove.

096

A sphere of wire is the perfect accent to slide over the bulbs of your string lights—they come in a pack of nine.

097

Here’s a mercury glass finial with icy accents.

098

A snow-covered, silver pinecone.

099

A simple, inexpensive leaping reindeer . . .

100

More glitter, with a greeting!

101

A glitter crown to accent your tree or decorative vignette.

103

A silver and glitter pine-look pik adds a a lot of dimension to the tree.

105

A grouping of glitter snowballs. (do you see a theme developing here?)

106

A trio of mercury glass finials.

108

A Paris memory.

107

A snow fairy under a cloche.

110

Mercury glass pillars, a platinum hops garland surround the fairy on this mantel display.

111

This beautiful Santos-style fairy queen holds court on the mantel, as well.

113

I added one of these beautiful bottle brush wreaths to my own home décor last year.

114

This little beauty is actually about 2 1/2 feet tall—a wood cut-out with an easel support on the back—she would look lovely at your front door, next to your fireplace or along side of her Father Christmas counterpart, seen here in this post.

115

Beautiful vintage-style, mirrored ornaments.

116

Mercury glass ornaments are so classic and lovely.

117

These beautiful, hand-beaded mini candeliers look great on the the tree—use battery operated votive, please.

119

These appetizer plates from the Mary Carol Collection are perfect for your table from Thanksgiving through all of the winter months.  You’ll find snowy scenes including squirrels, pheasants, hares and a buck.  They’re displayed on our exclusive reproduction platter rack.

109

I think I have one more tree to show, but it’ll have to wait until after I show you my new stairwell décor.  After our fire last year, I had to throw-out all of my old stairwell decorations—so I want to show you what I put together to replace it.

So, until then, I thank you for your indulgence!

PS  I’m linking to Vintage Inspired Friday again—as there is no denying that most items I’ve shown here are inspired by vintage designs.  We can’t always find the vintage pieces we we’d like to have for our homes, but with talented designers like Wendy Addison and Mary Carol Garrity, we can have the next best thing . . . Vintage Inspired décor.
