If you don't have a Christmas tree....

 Its the holiday season, and for me that means decorating.
I love to change the look of our home to reflect the Christmas season.
That means garlands and ornaments and trees!
Frosted trees are a favorite and I found a cute little one at Hobby Lobby.
Just this small version of a Christmas tree added instant cheer to the room.
Even before Thanksgiving I started with one full size tree, then I added one more.
I get a lot of enjoyment out of our trees~I think they bring a room to life 
at Christmas time.  But I was thinking that maybe many of you don't have
the time, the money or the energy to put up a tree.  So the next best thing is
to take an everyday object in your room, and decorate it!
Lamps and chandeliers are great places to add swags of garland,
bits of greenery and ornaments.  
This large cherub lamp is festooned in blues and greens.
Old fashioned mercury glass style beads and tiny ornaments 
drip from the five arms of this gilded light fixture.
On the other end of the piano is a gold lantern that wears a small frosted
wreath with a few baubles and a skinny velvet ribbon.
 Sticking with my theme of blue and green and natural greens,
this lantern is decked out for the holidays. At night the candles
are turned on to add more ambience to the room.
So don't fret if you don't have a tree...
create a little magic with your everyday things.
You will be relaxing in no time...just like my little grand-dog Sylvia,
I am babysitting her all week long and I think she is fine with it.
I will be back a few more times this week with more Christmas posts
and that Perfect Rug I was telling you about a few weeks ago. 
It arrived, and it looks beautiful.  I can't wait to share!!
