Let it Glow {and Sparkle!}

the sparkling lights
are my favorite decor of Christmas

...the glow, the sparkle, the glimmer...

and then add a bit of vintage style

and dress up the mantle

tree branches sprayed white and glittered
(by my daughter, so fun!)
with these gold balls create some sparkle in the dining room

a silver trophy dripping with pearls

... and a portrait of my husband and I to finish it off ...
Okay so you probably didn't believe that last one.
It's actually a pencil drawing inspired by Cary Grant and Grace Kelly
available in my Gilded Sparrow Etsy shop as a print
and as a tag
"For a Classy Couple"

All this decorating can wear a girl out
Merry Merry Christmas Season!

Rejoicing in the birth of our Savior

Violet, you had me there for a minute, ha ha funny girl.
Your decor is beautiful just like your work.
I LOVE the pooped out pooch on the chair. Is that the one on my gift tag??
I sent you a couple emails. Just wondering about the order.
Love You
Love Me

WHERE IN THE WORLD HAVE I BEEN??????? I WAS OFF ON THURSDAY AND MISSED THIS? Your probably posted when I had already gone to bed!!!

Dazzle is DAZZLING even in her sleep! SHE IS SO FUNNY; she looks like those boots you have and I just love! To see your house dear Violet is a charm, a real joy. And to view it here with two other darling sisters is a double joy. Oh how I wish we could just gather together ONCE, just ONCE to see one another!!! Love your mantel; and that first picture with the light softly glowing on your angel is just magical. Thank you for everything dearest, for EVERYTHING!!!!!!! Anita

Wow, your house glitters and glamours Violet! Am a fan of twinkling lights as well - so much needed, as the nights are longer and darker now! Your doggie is the best - give him a hug from me!

I love the sparkling lights as well. That first photo is so pretty. And your dog looks almost like part of the furniture. So cozy. haha...

Merry Christmas!
